It is with sadness that we must say goodbye to a team member here at Engine Room Recordings who passed away earlier this week. Jared McGuinness had only been here a few weeks but he had come to us with great experience and such enthusiasm that we were looking forward to seeing what he would accomplish in his time here, and in the future. It is shame that his life ended at such a young age. Our condolences go out to the entire McGuinness family and all of Jared’s friends for this heavy loss.
We kicked off our first Guilt By Association show last night at Parkside Lounge in Manhattan’s lower east side. It was freezing out but the room still filled up and we were treated to sets by Lara Ewen, Bryan Dunn and ERR’s own Goat. It was great fun and how can you not enjoy yourself when Def Leopard gets busted out. Congrats to Dan Berns from Chicago for getting the most answers right in our guilty pop culture trivia contest….I guess it pays to know all about the Spice Girls after all.
So that’s the First Thursday of every month at Parkside Lounge. The next show is February 6th where we’ll have comedian Nick Cobb, singer/songwriter Derek James and ERR’s Porter Block. Hope to see you there!
