Well, ever since Brian and Bryn went off to grad school, there hasn't
been much going on the in the Honey White universe, but when there is,
it will be posted for the world to see on the My
Band Rocks blog, so keep it bookmarked.
Lots of Honey White goodies and other related awesomeness is there all the time, including Keir's History Mix essays (in-depth close-ups of Honey White and Mojo Wire recordings), Audio Archives posts (with rare mp3). There's also occasional stuff from the rest of the band, like Bryn's solo history or Brian and Bill posting their favorite fanboy indulgences of the moment. Scroll down for the most recent entries.

Because sure, we've blown through enough TEN YEARS MAN anniversaries to bury Jeremy Piven alive—but trawling the Honey White nostalgia for 2003 will have to wait, because Bryn and I have new gear to show off:
Bryn: Octave mandolin. Or Irish bouzouki. Battle axe headstock makes it more of a Viking bouzouki, perhaps. This was from an open mic night last week at Stillwater in Dana Point.
Me: Fender Jaguar bass. Not pictured: abalone pickguard (in transit, allegedly). Acquired this axe from Instrumental last week. Venue is...uh...my kitchen.

Trawling pre-professional "design" work for the Mojo Wire & discovered this monstrosity, circa 1999. Throwback Thursday indeed. Note ill-advised late-'90s facial hair on 3/4 of the band. Yikes:

Just a quickie here for collecting some notable Honey White gig anniversaries from the first half of 2003:
On January 30, Honey White played our longest set ever (22 songs), at the UCSB University Center. This show was also filmed for webcast. Note the genius of wearing black shirts against a black background. 3/4 of the band did this. The one guy who didn't now has a PhD. Not a coincidence.
On April 22, we appeared on local S.B. TV's "Musical Café" show. They tested a new mixing board on us, so we looked better than we sounded.
On April 30, we made our downtown SB debut, at the Wildcat Lounge—complete with ironic groupie shirts and synchronized dance moves.
That about covers it for notable anniversaries (at least the decade-markers). Not too many coming up for many many moons...

Recent (and upcoming!) band milestone stuff belatedly made me realize I could plot every Mojo Wire and Honey White gig on Google Maps (about 50 from 1996-2006):
