help me! [29 Jan 2006|12:35am]

Most of you guys know me as the kid who made that unoffical SM DVD a year back.
I know a lot of you have it and enjoyed it.
This is mostly for those people.
I have a favor to ask.
For those of you who liked our short film, Elevator, can you please do us a favor?
You see, it's in the running to be shown on IFC, the Independent Film Channel.
But in order for that to happen, people need to vote for it!
So could you please go to the IFC Media Lab and vote?
It's real simple.
Step One: Go to IFC Media Lab
Step Two: Create An Account (It's real simple!)
Step Three: Search for "Elevator"
Step Four: Vote for "Elevator" (Hopefully you'll give it a 10!)
Step Five: Hope we win!
Tell your friends!
Thanks guys!!!

More Streetlight News [20 Mar 2005|05:02pm]

This was posted on their site this morning.


so then that happened...

it's 8:55 am and we're somewhere in nebraska, headed home. we've been driving all night and will continue to do so until we reach new jersey. one of our guys is on a plane headed home right now.

due to an urgent family crisis concerning one of us, we've had to cancel the last 5 dates of this tour (the non-"ska is dead" dates that were supposed to get us back home). we hope those of you who had planned on attending the shows understand. this is the third medical emergency concerning family members on this tour alone (two of which were ours) and we obviously place the lives of those we love ahead of anything else.

in addition to this current misfortune, we have to also say goodbye to one of the founding members of streetlight manifesto, dan ross. dan was on his last tour with us before he was to jump head first into the working world, and this tour was bittersweet for us all in that we knew it'd be the last time we shared a stage with him. medical emergency #2 occured and he had to pull out early to take care of a family member in need, hence our last few shows we played with a 3 piece horn section and quickly reworked harmony vocals. we wish dan the best in everything he does and pursues.

besides the 3 terrible events over the last few weeks, we'd like to announce that we had the time of our lives playing with bands as fine as voodoo glow skulls and mu330 these last two months. this tour was a blast in so many ways, and it couldn't have happened the way it did without the love eminating from the stage, as well as from the audience, every night. we hope those of you that made it out to the shows enjoyed them as much as we all did.

as for what's next for the manifesto: some time off from touring to regroup, take care of things at home, rehearse, and then it's off to the airport: europe, here we come! we are excited beyond words about this upcoming tour, as well as for the northeast jaunt we have planned for june. for all you british sm fans, keep an eye out for a streetlight feature in big cheese magazine, who is also sponsoring the tour.

as usual, we have so much planned for the near future, keep checking back here for details. once again, we apologize for the cancelled shows and we thank you in advance for your support and understanding. take care.

Taken from the site... [22 Jan 2005|12:01pm]


on the eve of.... (fill in the blank)
so we're off for a nice, long tour again. ska is dead 2005 awaits, with voodooglow skulls, mu330 and your humble narrators on board for nearly 2 months of rocking. a few of us grew up with both these bands in our cd collections, so this is rad for us.

final dates will be posted in the next few days, as well as more details for our european tour. there'll be more dates in north america shortly after our return from overseas including a spot on this year's skate and surf fest, so keep an eye out for that. canada, this means you too ;-)

in sadder news, we once again have to bid farewell to a longtime friend and band member. jamie egan, trumpetist extraordinaire is leaving the band to be with his family. jamie had a hard time with his decision, as he absolutely loved doing what he did on stage and he will miss you all. it came down to a hard decision for him, with a life of touring on one side and his kids and career as a teacher on the other. obviously no one can blame him for choosing family over rock. make sure to slap his ass if you see him at school or out and about. although he won't be touring with us, he'll be part of the sm family for good and don't be surprised if he pops up from time to time.

accepting the trumpet baton from jamie will be delano bonner, who'll be on the road with us for the next few tours. make sure to welcome him to the world of streetlight when you see us live.

well, that's about it for now. once again, we are all so unbelievably psyched for the upcoming tours and we cannot wait to get back on the stage after a few months off. see you at the shows!

So, a longshot... [30 Nov 2004|04:17am]

Chris Thatcher was in a band before streetlight. I think it was called Ground Swell or something like that.

Dan Ross was in the Royalties.

Mike Soprano was in the Derringers (with Jeff Davidson of Alone in a Crowd fame).

Now, the longshot.

I'm wondering if anyone has any music by any of those three bands. We all have our hands on old catch 22 stuff, gimp stuff, and OCG. But, I haven't heard anything (with the exception of two royalties tracks and two derringers tracks off a pinball comp drew has).

So, if anyone has any MP3s by The Derringers, The Royalties, or Ground Swell (or can correct me on this bands name). Please post here or get in touch with me on aim.

Josh Has Left Streetlight Manifesto [14 Sep 2004|01:56pm]

[ mood | worried ]

From the Streetlight News Section:


we made it! (kind of)

hello again all!
so we survived our first national summer tour and had a blast in the process. big d and the kid's table are now close friends of ours and we had great times, running around this lovely country causing mayhem and destruction.
there'll definitely be more updates regarding the specifics of the tour and we have hours and hours of hilarious video footage to remind us of all the good times, but the highlight of the whole thing had to be our homecoming show at the starland ballroom. you guys (our home crowd) are unbelievable. thank you thank you thank you.

it is with a heavy heart that we bring you this next piece of news, though: as of the stone pony show, josh ansley will no longer be performing with us as a member of streetlight. he's left the band and is moving on to pursue other goals. we wish him the best and will miss him and his bass wizardry. there'll be a temp bassist filling in for a bit while we look for a full time touring bassist to join our little family.

so, we have a show at one of our favorite places in the world this weekend, the stone pony in asbury park, nj. it'll be our last show for a bit, while we regroup and prepare for a future filled with touring and recording.

see you all on sunday!

This is all too reminiscent of how Catch 22 fell apart. Josh left for school when the band started getting serious. Then Tomas left because he couldn't handle the band being such a commitment. Then Jamie left because his home life was falling apart...

But it all started with Josh leaving. Ugh.

This is the link to what has been being said on the Streetlight Manifesto Message Board:

For those who don't know, I'm AskTheMagic8Ball over there.

My response over there was:

Fuck. Tim called me this morning to ask me if I had seen it and totally ruined my day. While he called Drew, I texted Allie and Jeff. I'm somewhat speechless.

Does anyone feel a sick reminiscence to the demise of Catch 22?

Josh, I wish you the best of luck in whatever you do. I'm not going to say you were my favorite, because I didn't have one. Streetlight Manifesto came to represent one whole entity to me and you were a major part of it. I had some awesome times seeing you guys and hanging out with all of you this summer. Hopefully I'll get a chance to cross paths with you again.

I'm slightly confused on what the announcement means though. Is Josh playing on Sunday or is the temp bass player? And who would they get to fill-in? Like I said of Tyler in RBF, someone could fill the bass lines, but no one can actually replace Josh. He is too much himself to ever be replaced.

I need to leave this board for now. This is really upsetting me...

Current away message:

...I can't help agreeing, with those that would not quite...

WTF? First Tyler gets kicked out of Reel Big Fish, now Josh quits Streetlight Manifesto. This is not okay. This is C22 all over again. Fuck Fuck Fuck.

I don't know much, but I do know this:
With a golden heart comes a rebel fist
And every single soldier wasn't fired,
Some have quit...

This seriously just ruined my day.

About next Sunday's show at The Reverb [in Toronto]...

Do you think I'll be able to get in at the door? They weren't selling tickets from Ticketmaster, the only way to get tickets was to go down to Toronto and get them...and since I don't drive, that didn't happen.
