Ah yes, here it is. My vintage post. And there are a few reasons why. First, Michael Brian Patterson is a dear, old friend of mine who has known me since the days of going to shows in tiny, dark, cramped venues on school nights. High school nights. In those days, Michael was playing for a band called the Dietrichs and I was a loyal fan to the end. It’s been amazing watching him play over the years and I am very excited to feature his current work. Michael is in two bands right now, Broken Gun and Russian Arms and Optics. These songs are from Broken Gun, but if you check back soon you’ll be seeing a post featuring Russian Arms and Optics (in a very unique location, I might add).
Secondly, Michael arrived at the video shoot with a beautiful, vintage guitar that belonged to his grandmother in the thirties. I was beside myself. I love antiques. Especially musical ones.
*A note on the locations. Lastly, both videos were shot in two historic buildings in Downtown Phoenix on Roosevelt Row. The historic element is evidenced by the creaking floorboards and mint green-hued kitchen. Unless you know the owners personally, I guess I will not be encouraging a visit to these locations. 🙂 But I do highly recommend you visit Roosevelt Row for its thriving art community, weekly events and local shops, bars, restaurants and art galleries.
We hope you enjoy the post!
