UPDATES FROM THE ROAD

Call for Videographers and Extras! 

Hey Chicago!

We are cooking up three music videos for unreleased new Zigtebra songs to be released on "The Brave" in September 2015 and we'd love for YOU to be in on it!  We promise to set up fun shoots in easy location with relatively brief shooting times so we can all head to the party of the night together!  

If you are interested in learning more about when and where our shoots will be, sign up for our email list!

If you are a videographer or you know of one who rocks your world, shoot us an email or send us a link to some of their work!  We're looking to start setting up and knocking down these shoots ASAP!  <3  Summer sun and lots of fun.  I hope you like pool parties.  

Dear Diary, Limitations and Creativity and Fever 

After returning from our 3 month summer tour, we wrote all new songs and recorded our first studio album, "The Brave",  at Observatory Studios during a record-breaking winter.  The icy chill crept into our bones and climbed onto our shoulders.  It took all of our super duo strength and two special cookies from a lonesome birthday boy to so swiftly create and finish this album.  For a small bedroom pop duo, the deadline forced us to climb to a higher place.  In retrospect,  Zigtebra had been working full throttle for nearly all of 2013 (mostly booking and touring); it's no wonder that we BOTH fractured our ribs within two weeks of one another immediately after completing "The Brave."  And then when Tiger broke his left paw and required surgery, the two active and impervious daredevil twins finally took time to recoup.  The limitation of recovery is a humbling experience, and it has helped us appreciate each other.  The down-time gave us the opportunity to be observant and contemplative.  We found new inspiration.  We found new instruments.  We found new strength.  Finally, after many months, our blood is beginning to boil again.  The Fever's got us.  We're coming for you.  

 

Zigtebra Diaries 6/24/14 

Last Friday we played a bravely intimate house show at a new venue, The Avocado, run by Kriss Stress of Notes and Bolts.  We shared the bill with the intense and soulful melodies of a bare-bones Oshwa, plus a lovely-voiced songbird, Night and Gale, opened the night.  It was a refreshing evening of honest music.  No bar scene could compare to the sugar that fills a room at a house show.  We are so grateful for this drizzling bristling bustling city that keeps us on our toes and taps us on the nose.  

The next day was a classic grey stormy Chicago Saturday.  We both rushed home from work to re-pack our gear to be rainproof for a public transit adventure up to Evanston on the northside to play a theater fundraiser BBQ.  En route we got the call it had been rained out!  Two soggy matching yellow-slickered beasts de-boarded the bus and walked home in the puddles.  And then it came in a vision: The pot of gold at the end of the rainy rainbow: Porkchop sandwiches.
