If time is a flat circle, then just over the Event Horizon you should be able to just make out another rainy, windy Thursday, designated November 5, 2009, where a newborn Zubatto Syndicate is doing that wobbly leg thing that baby fawns do onstage at Town Hall Seattle in front of a supportive audience of friends and family. I can’t believe Zubatto is going to be a first-grader soon. #tbt You can enjoy the whole show online thanks to the nice folks at the Seattle Channel!
This is not a (Chinese) Democracy – 2Batto from Andrew Boscardin on Vimeo. Happy Fall, everyone! Work on 2Batto! is still creeping forward and I believe we are on track to finish editing and mixing in the next month or two. No one is more anxious to get this thing finished than I am, but (naturally) no one is more intent on getting everything just right. With this in mind, Adam and I went back to Avast! this past week to redo some guitar stuff that has been bugging me…read more
The cover song reward is the chocolate center of the Kickstarter campaign. It is the theme that holds everything together. Even though I started Zubatto to perform my own music, cover songs have always been a fun part of our performances. The first cover we ever did was “Taxman” by The Beatles, for a gig at the Crocodile on tax day, April 15. If we ever have another show on an April 15, we’ve got that one in the pocket. I initially thought of cover songs as one-shots like that…read more

Zubatto Syndicate continues “The Year of Zubatto”, celebrating our fifth year of weirdo extraterrestrial big band shenanigans. We will be playing an awesome double-bill with MetriLodic at The Tractor Tavern on January 2, 2014 – a date so futuristic-sounding, I can’t even be sure it’s not a Simulacrum created by Skynet. Remember those awesome Marvel Team-Up comics where Spidey would pair up with The Hulk, Iron Man (or even Man-Thing or Howard the Duck) for some serious adventures? Well, this is like that but with music! Sharing the bill will…read more
Some great shots by my friend Odawni Palmer of Sunday’s Zubatto Syndicate show at Columbia City Theater. Video and more to come!
