Doomsday Returns – is Drinkognito DC Show’s best release ever?

Sometimes it’s pretty hard to build hype for a band that hasn’t been active together for around 6 years. Let alone a group that never really “made it” anywhere outside of Local Music status. But after years of trying different things with my solo thing, playing in a Rock Band, and whatever collaboration came my way… The DC Show’s “Drinkognito” CD release party on Saturday night felt like we were bigger than we EVER were.

Maybe it was because I’ve been talking about it for almost a year, maybe it was because of the Never Heroes Music video I released, maybe it was because we hit #43 in the Itunes Hip Hop Charts on day 2 of our release, maybe it was because of the Calgary Herald article…

Oh yeah, In case you missed it, we were in the Calgary Herald on Saturday morning, thanks to an awesome interview with Mike Bell over lunch and beers. Read This Shit

To sum it up, on Saturday evening at Vagabond Beerworks We were able to round up a whole shitload of people to come out and party with us, thanks to all our friends, family, and fans, not to mention Iron Lion and his crew of supporters, and Lyka Fox who seem to impress everyone they play for!

Our friends at FYFC.ca Podcasts also have been helping us build some hype by inviting us on their show for a few fun times, including drinking and chatting about the album, and our influences and just regular, everyday awesome shit.

After our show, they posted this review of their DC Show CD Release experience, because they are fuckin awesome and they like to do awesome shit.

Next Sunday, Nov. 2nd, we will be hitting up DJ Cosm’s show Mental Illness on CJSW 90.9FM at 4pm for a little interview and music. If you wanna turn off Drinkognito for a moment during that time to flip on the radio, that would be an acceptable excuse.

It’s now late Sunday night (early monday morning), we’ve had a day to relax and count our blessings, and I’m going to go to bed, back to my “real” job for another work week, but still flying high from the amazing feeling this weekend that took years to build up, and we will try to keep our wings flapping into the new year!
