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: Jeff Gist

Whenever he’s not on Mars schedule or zeroing in on one of his creations, you get to hang out with the Gist.

I met Jeff through another very talented friend, Jessica Nguyen (you should meet her too!), and have been frequently impressed by his kindness and creativity. The man has multiple talents and skills, song-craft (check his Soundcloud feed), drumming (he plays with Magic Fight), singing (here’s evidence), creating animations of 3D manatees (coming soon), and many other talents that may not have been reported yet.

What does he do for a living? Nobody really knows, but the assumption is that if you are under prescribed medication it is very likely that you are consuming one of his biochemical inventions. What we do know is that 9AM for you is 9PM for him and so on. Think about that before you invite him out for breakfast.

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