Help ARMCANNON open for Godsmack!!!

Recommended Posts

Just saw this through a MySpace Bulletin courtesy of the band:

http://www.wedg.com/contests/godsmack.html

ok peeps...heres the deal. 103.3 the EDGE is hosting a contest to have a local band open for GODSMACK at sheas. each band has to post a video to be selected from and voted upon. go to the link i posted above and vote the crap outta ARMCANNON. thanks to everyone who votes and keep supporting ARMCANNON like you have done in the past. and stop out June 1st at Broadway joes and jam with us.

If you've seen these guys at MAGFest or anywhere else, you know they can tear it up.

"Armcannon" is at the bottom of the list, so swing by and give them some support.

Voted - who cares who they're opening for, or - heck - even if you like them. It's recognition for game music, so I'm for it. And they happen to rock.

Yeah, as little as I like Godsmack, I voted for them, hope it gets them some good exposure.

fishy --- that was actually a one-time special-guest friend-cameo.

however accordion is pretty much the only thing we are missing in armcannon

Ah shame, accordians are great. So what other stuff can you guys play apart from the usual band stuff then? Anything weird?

Never heard of you guys until I looked around for Youtube videos. However, a video game band is still more deserving than other bands, so you got my vote anyway :)

one of our greatest failed experiments was that we took our already heavy-metal cover of power rangers, and morphed it into a slow reggae with me doing steel drums on the keyboard . . .

also we do a super cliche but successfully loose, splattery blues version of hammer bros stage from mario3. ^_^

A couple more votes just went your way between me and a few friends.

Hope you guys get the part. F***n sweet band.

When we record more stuff, we'll find some room for some accordian to tear it up.

Are you referring to instruments? Our one guitarist Mike is a good vocalist so it allows us to experiment with vocals in some areas. We attempt a barbershop quartet type ending to our ghostbusters remix for example. Otherwise we have traditional band elements with everything else covered by Chris on the keyboards. For example we do a fun little thing with the People's Court theme where he uses a typewriter sounding patch.

BTW, thanks so much for the support guys. I've always been kind of turned off by OCR just because electronic remixes are not my thing so much (even though I realize you have much more than that) and some of the judging stuff isn't really my thing either, but my heart is warmed by the VGscene support so I'll see if I can't poke my head around here once in a while.

Again thanks guys

Danimal Cannon

Well, I was just wondering what chris meant by other instruments, like the steel drum reggae stuff :D. I'm a sucker for barbershop quartets aswell.

Not everyone likes the judging aspect at OCR, but it does make sure that most all of what we get is quality stuff, and I think it shows. If you guys aren't really into to electronica, do a search for "goat" or "sixto", they're probably right up your alley.
