Thank you Sofar sounds! I was lucky enough to attend this event; the people, atmosphere, and music were amazing. Let me music be heard!
Katrina, we're very aware of what an epileptic seizure is. The word itself can also be applied to other things, such as the seizure of items. Regardless, it commemorates when we witnessed a man (whose name we never got) experiencing a seizure in front of our house. He fell backwards and hit his head very hard on the pavement, which led to blood pouring out of his ears. It was a very intense experience that occurred whilst we were taking a break from playing music. I assure you, we didn't point and laugh when it happened. We were the first to call paramedics to the scene, helping to save his life. The name is not intended to make people laugh or exploit anyone who may experience seizures. It's also not a direct reference to the Cyanide and Happiness comic.
Hopefully this answers your questions.
Did you ask why they chose the name "Seizure Man" for the label? I'd really like to know.
What are they trying to insinuate with this as the name of a music label? Do either Jacob or Molly understand what a seizure really is?
As a proud Pittsburgher, who has epilepsy, I hope this name isn't meant to be cynical or judgmental...

Porkified. Yes, Porkified. What does it mean? It goes beyond being a “cool one,” and spending decades listening to and following the Pied Piper of Pittsburgh. It’s about knowing, understanding, and admiring the man. The man, who decade after decade, genuinely and consistently displayed his kind and caring way, whether it was to help struggling artists who were turned away by the “mainstream” or having a life-long positive impact on tens of thousands of teenagers. Porkified is forever. We love you, Porky Chedwick. May God bless you and keep you.
One of the greatest albums of the decade thus far.
This man is an asset to Pittsburgh, he goes to nearly every concert, captures it, is a heck of an illustrator. My girlfriend and I make a game out of Hugh-spottings, yelling "I SEE HUGH!"
Great guy... and this music series is an apt way of celebrating TEN YEARS of service to the local music scene.
Interesting fact: he has an endless collection of hand-written lyrics by a plethura of bands.
This is a talented duo. Proud owner of the debut and having heard To The Far Blue Mountains can safely say they've outdone themselves. This is an album that should be a mainstay on WYEP. Really great stuff worthy of bigger things.
The Mixus Brothers play Club Café's Early Show on January 11th...and you can check out the new album at www.reverbnation.com/mixusbrothers
This article brings up some great points when it comes to musicians looking to get their music heard. In the past, and still today it's record labels that do the marketing. However, when it comes to unsigned Artists they are left with that job.. unless they find the right people to help them. Musicians often need to do much more than just write good music, record, and perform live.
" In that short time, the duo had found a way to deconstruct the folk songs she had written. Experimenting with Etienne's collection of vintage synths and jamming at all hours of the day and night, the two ended up with nine playful and compelling tracks that reflect a wide range of influences."
I wish WPTS published the song list after they play them, since they rarely announce what they played. I'm often in my car and hear something I like, and have no way to find out what it is.
This is a fantastic idea, Shadyside needs live music!
MIke Medved will be performing at the next "Art in a Box" Friday June 14, 7:30 pm at The DAP Co-Op for Dance, Arts, & Photography. www.dapcoop.com or go the events page on Facebook to see more about this event.
