Milestones: Midwest Pt 2

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

mississippi-river2

Our earlier post about the Midwest harkened back to the earliest days of Galapagos4 road life. Here, in the second installment of that series, we take a look at the crew’s maiden voyages to Iowa CIty, Champaign-Urbana, and Milwaukee.

Why is this considered a milestone? For one, we are all from the Midwest. Put simply, to perform in these nearby cities was to perform for our own kind, and hopefully to people that would understand us. And secondly, I want to stress that these were the first “out-of-town” shows that anyone had ever asked us to play, outside of Chicago, ever. I’m not going to lie – we were pretty stoked about going to these places, and why not? It was all uncharted territory as far as we were concerned. During those early days of us trying to find our first outlets for expression, in our attempt to forge an identity for ourselves and our label, these Midwestern cities were there for us.

Milestones: On and On

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

2009 has drawn to a close.. but we still haven’t gotten to post all of the “Milestones” entries that we wanted to post. So, as an official disclaimer, the Milestones posts will continue on.

Jeff, Qwel and I have all made our way home from the “Black Rain” Tour in Japan. It wasn’t the first time G4 artists had been to Japan – other artists had ventured before (Maker, Denizen Kane, Mestizo & Mike Gao) – but this tour was still a G4 milestone nonetheless. Pictures from the tour can be found here. Back with more posts in 2010.
