Okay, so hopefully me posting this isn't letting the cat out of the bag to their current drummer or anything -- one would hope he's been informed and not just left hanging a la Dave Mustaine getting booted by Metallica -- but local indie-rock kids .belville have made it known that they do indeed need a new drummer. (And yes, I'm fairly sure the "." before the name's actually part of it. If anybody could confirm, I'd appreciate it; I've been asked by two different people recently.)
I should note, by the way, that these guys are among the most promising local bands of the past few years, and one I desperately need to hear more from. I snagged a few tracks a year or three back that I enjoyed quite a bit, but then the band seemed to vanish completely, only to resurface not too long ago -- they just posted a new song on their MySpace page, "Vie Olin," that's freakin' incredible.
So, if you're a drummer and you might be interested in the gig, here's what the band's looking for:
"We are looking for someone who can keep time, is very creative, and will have creative input towards the music. You must have your own transportation, be able to pay a share of band room rent at Francisco's downtown, and be willing to tour. We do not do drugs or excessively drink, and would prefer someone who does the same. No age or gender preference, and we can provide equipment for you. Go to www.myspace.com/belville to hear what we sound like. Keep in mind that you are not expected to mimic our previous drummer."
If that sounds good to you, you can contact the band via MySpace, e-mail 'em at "fromholin" at "gmail dot com", or call either Jay (281-798-6991) or Jonny (281-798-5669). Hopefully these folks find somebody good, 'cause they really need to keep doing what they're doing...
