Filardo will soothen you with his croon:

Last time we played L.A. we were treated to a surprise performance by Mandarin Dynasty, and he left us with a CD-R of his then-upcoming album which I got to listen to in the car, and wow it was all really great. Looking forward to seeing him again and grabbing a copy of that album!

Just Another Snake Cult’s on- and off-venue schedule for Iceland Airwaves Festival 2011

This year we are performing once again at the Iceland Airwaves festival. Our schedule has turned out pretty hectic! Looking forward to an extended weekend of lugging our instruments in the frosty rain all over downtown.  I’m not kidding.  This is going to be so much fun.

To kick things off, we’re playing on Wed, Oct. 12 at 5PM at the Kimi Records/KEXP off-venue showcase at KEX Hostel. This will be broadcast live by KEXP, both on the air in Seattle and streaming on their website. So no matter where you are, you can listen! (5PM in Iceland is 10AM on the US west coast.) RSVP to the Facebook event invite to remind yourself. Other bands playing this show include Gus Gus, Samaris, and Retro Stefson. Worth checking out!

Later that evening at 7:30PM we head over to Barabara, which is Reykjavík’s only gay bar.  Like all off-venue shows (with the exception maybe of the Vesterbæjarlaug swimming pool shows?) entrance is free.

The next day, Thur, Oct. 13 at 9:30PM (was 10PM), perfectly timed for you to catch us while on your way out the door to some hot on-venue events, we close up the line-up at the Reykjavík Backpackers hostel.

Come Friday, Oct. 14 we will be playing at  4:30PM at Kaffistofan, which is a cool student-related art gallery at Hverfisgata 44 (one street down from the main drag, Laugavegur).

And then, if you can manage to stay up past midnight, at 1:10PM Friday night (technically Saturday morning) we play our on-venue show at Amstersdam.

Then on Sunday perhaps you’ll find us performing somewhere strange and spontaneous as we galavant around the city with a film crew from La Blogothèque.


  • Wed Oct. 12 @ 5:00PM – (off-venue) KEX Hostel
  • Wed Oct. 12 @ 7:30PM – (off-venue) Barbara
  • Thu Oct. 13 @ 10:00PM 9:30PM (updated time) – (off-venue) Reykjavík Backpackers
  • Fri Oct. 14 @ 4:30PM – (off-venue) Kaffistofan
  • Fri Oct. 14 (but technically Saturday by the time we play) @ 1:10AM – (on-venue) Amsterdam

Stay tuned — having spent the time checking out almost every single band listed as playing the festival, I’ll shortly be posting a guide to some of my personal highlights.  Follow via facebook, twitter, tumblr, or rss.

Menningarnótt 2011 / August 20

UPDATEJust Another Snake Cult is now playing THREE shows on Menningarnótt (“Culture Night” / Saturday, Aug. 20).  Lots of exciting changes with the band.  I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just snagged Túmi, sax player from The Heavy Experience, and he will be making his debut with the band on Saturday.  Lára continues on cello, Beggi on bass. Our keyboardist, Áa, has returned from California, but may not be in town on Saturday.  Linus is now on electric guitar and I’ve switched to the acoustic. AND! Ási, who plays in a number of bands, including Muck and Markús and the Diversion Sessions, is our new drummer and will also be making his debut with the band on Saturday.  We’ve been rehearsing and I’m excited by how things are coming together!
