Recording at Studio SQ

Studio SQI recently spent two days with the other Magic Fight kids recording at Studio SQ in San Francisco. Guided by magic visionary, Alex Haager, we tracked two songs that will eventually become the band’s new single.

There is quite a lot of engineering talent and crazy gear at the studio. They know what they are doing. It sounds good, it looks good, it smells good. We love it. Co-Owner and Engineer, Jeremy Rosenblum, has a lot of experience and was fantastic at leading us through the process, while studio Manager, Sierra Frost, was sincerely welcoming and helpful. We want to go back!

Do you want to hear the new songs now?  You can! We will be playing them live at Brick and Mortar in San Francisco on Tuesday Sept 3. THE SHOW IS FREE!

Music Video Race

It begins tonight. Can we borrow your white Camaro? How about some hair gel instead?

The kids in Magic Fight, myself included, will be shooting a music video in 48 hours for the Music Video Race. There will be pros involved so no fear.

We’ll be performing live at the screening on Saturday June 15 at the Rickshaw Stop. You should get tickets.


Here are some of my favorites from last year’s race.

Who Is: Alex Christopher Haager

Alex ahh

He’s not afraid to ask for his own surprise birthday party and will be very clear about letting you know if you got him the wrong present. But, spend ten minutes chatting with this guy and you are going to want to keep him as one of your closest friends.

I met him a few months back when he was looking for band mates to join his latest musical creation, Magic Fight. I immediately fell in love with the music, joined, and now feel very lucky to be in for the ride.  Beware though, he is extremely talented (watch this) and will not give up until his melodies become your dearest ear worms. This, along with his fantastic sense of humor, big heart and lively circle of friends make him a great asset both to me and to the Bay Area music scene.

Oh, he enjoys saying he’s from Florida. Chat him up about it.

Who Is? I want you to meet some of my best friends and inspirations. This is one of them.
