SHOW PREVIEW: BURLINGTON ON 10/29

We’re very excited to be on board for a mid-week Chicago show on Tuesday October 29th at the Burlington. The other acts–Clip Art and The Hudson Branch–are damn good and are going to make for an awesome night of music. Here’s a taste of what you can expect from The Hudson Branch. “You Don’t KnowMORE

Cover Up #6: “How Come You Don’t Call Me Anymore” by Prince

Stefanie Berecz. We in the band call her Breezy sometimes, and here’s one reason why. She and I knocked out this burning Prince tune in the middle of our set at The Ritz Theatre in Tiffin, OH.  And uh….Tiffin U had some singers in the audience that night! Best spontaneous backups…maybe ever. This song comesMORE

Warm Up Wednesdays continue in March

We’ve had so much fun during our February residency at The Back Room that we decided to extend it through March! To celebrate another month at The Back Room we’re doing 1/2 off the cover charge the first week. Just reply “yes” to our Facebook invite here. We’d like to thank DJRC for holding it downMORE

“Call Girl” remixes are downloadable!

The vinyl has been out for a couple weeks, but now Deep & Disco has released the second round of “Call Girl” remixes as mp3s on all the popular music-downloading sites of the day. We’re hugely grateful to Jason Kriv, who we’ve worked with in various projects like Tortured Soul and Escort, for putting thisMORE

What I Learned from Watching the Grammys

Stef’s thoughts on the 2013 Grammy Awards: 1. While running in place and performing a song that references Forrest Gump make sure you have warmed up.  It could go terribly wrong. 2. When giving an acceptance speech always thank the swap meet! 3. Deep side parts on men aren’t so bad after all. 4. ButterfliesMORE

Cover Up #5: “Wrong Side Of A Love Song” by Melanie Fiona

We’re switching up the format this week a little bit. Instead of the normal behind-the-scenes video from our rehearsal space, we thought we’d take this one right to the stage and share it with you from there. From last night’s show at Martyrs in Chicago (thanks to a fantastic crowd, btw), here’s Melanie Fiona’s “WrongMORE

Call Girl Remixes Part 2

Deep&Disco is releasing part 2 of the “Call Girl” remixes on vinyl this coming Monday, 1/28. We really enjoyed Part 1 when it came out last June–the second half won’t dissapoint. The 12″ includes three remixes plus the original from Gets Over You. My personal fave is by UK’s Hot Toddy. Check it out: We’re alreadyMORE

2012: Wrapped Up!

Taking some time on this New Year’s eve to lay down a bit of what The Right Now did this year. We’ve been doing these year-end wrap ups since 2008 or so, and I’m thinking we can probably be more concise as the years go by. The first years consisted largely of “We played aMORE

SONG OF THE WEEK: DALEY’S “ALONE TOGETHER”

What’s up with these amazing British soul singers? Someone add Daley to the list. “Alone Together” combines great production & stellar songwriting with a solid vocal performance–it’s contemporary R&B at its best. Dig it.

SONG OF THE WEEK: GARY CLARK JR.’S “BLAK AND BLU”

I shied away from Gary Clark Jr. initially. He seemed like another blase guitar hero heralded by Eric Clapton, Rolling Stone, etc, and that didn’t really interest me. Man was I wrong. I love his album Blak and Blu (especially the title track which is my song of the week pick). I don’t really know howMORE
