We had a beautiful weekend at the first (hopefully annual) Silverlake Jubilee. We’re really grateful that we got asked to play amidst so many of our friends, like Moses Campbell, So Many Wizards, 60 Watt Kid, and Halloween Swim Team. Our friend Carl took pictures of our set on Saturday, which you can view by clicking here.
I wholeheartedly believe this was the best Big Whup show ever. EVER! All the other bands were awesome, too– it was sort of our dream line up: Watercolor Paintings, Cobra Lilies, and So Many Wizards! Amazing. Here are a few photos that Charles took that night. You will notice that I am now singing out of Party (my pink Pegasus)… more on that later.
Geoff opened Porchfest II in the middle room and was totally juiced. Morgan and I blew bubbles up at him and sang along. Whitman played in a pile of balloons. Kevin Greenspon turned the front room into a balloon. Brother Mitya sang under the arch. Morgan and I made everyone sit on my bed in the dark. Voice on Tape made everyone cry in the middle room. Nicole Kidman made everyone hug in the middle room. Lola Loshkey jumped around on Morgan’s bed til everyone got creeped out or bored. It was Jon’s tour kick off party, and we all stayed up until 6 or 7 am after Surfer Blood played an acoustic set while singing out of Parti who was tucked between my skellie legs and after I learned how to play Reni’s accordion to Lou’s guitar in front of about 15 VIPs in Christine’s chill spot. You can read more about it here. Below are Pablo’s and Charles’ pictures from the night:

Hi everyone —
It’s been an eventful time for us lately! Thanks to everyone who came out to our show on Friday night at Echo Curio, and to the people who helped get the word out. Here’s a good pic from the night, courtesy of Losang Eles:
We just posted a new song, B.O.N.I.Z. H.E.A.R.T., to our Myspace page. The song features Drew on lead vocals as she tells a pseudo-French tale about a sea creature and luv.
In other news, The Deli Magazine is holding an online poll to determine their next artist of the month, and Big Whup is on the list. Go here to vote for us (the voting is on the right side of the page).
On that same night, we played L’keg and Avebury records was there to record it. Thanks Avebury!:
Anyway… We’ve got one more show left before 2009 ends. Come out to Pehrspace on Friday, Dec 11 and help us celebrate a really great year in the Kingdom of Whup. The address on the following flier is wrong – should read “325 Glendale Blvd:”

the tleilaxu music machine, a wacky internet friend of ours, took a picture of Jenna and Drew and made it way cooler:
Ain’t it neat?
