Even Bad Girls Drink Tea: The Flutterbies September newsletter

Hey, y’all! Welcome to The Flutterbies September newsletter… This month we’re all about multimedia, with new alt-country glamour pics for you, exciting video news, and more!

Even Bad Girls Drink Tea

A few weeks back, Christopher Cleary, long time friend of The Flutterbies and gifted photographer, called and said "I’m coming to town; let’s make art!" The resulting photo series is called Even Bad Girls Drink Tea and we’re knockdown thrilled to share a few pics of Maureen from the set:

Video Killed the Radio Star, continued

The Flutterbies’ video for our next single "How I Get Over You" is almost done! Filming is wrapped and the footage is off now to editor Kris Kasper, whose credits include clips by Wolfmother and Britney Spears. Detailed credits will be posted online when we debut the video, but for now we’d like to simply and sincerely thank:

1. Co-writer/producer/director Dan Zacharias (from the band Imperial Z)
2.
Director of photography Kyle Drevlo
3.
Dana Sol & Mi Casa Studios for providing cameras
4. Production coordinator & Band-Aid Mark "The Bacon" Harvey
5.
Everyone else who plotted, schemed, and participated in our raucous film shoot!

The video is epic: think Batman meets Moulin Rouge meets… The Flutterbies!

And special thanks to Mindy Sterling from the Austin Powers movies for her crazy sexy cameo! She and her riding crop are pictured here, with video co-star Lawson Digby:

RED, WHITE, & BLUES: The Flutterbies hit the road!

And no surprise… Maureen is the pinup poster girl for the event! Autographed, collectible posters will be sold for $5 at the show and online (order by writing maureen@theflutterbies.com) and ALL proceeds go to Soldiers R U.S.

Here’s a preview of the poster, inspired by a favorite pic by Mathew Caine at Studio Digitrope:

Reviews

This month’s review comes from columnist James Hames, from the online newspaper My Daily Find. James caught our August gig at Kulak’s Woodshed in North Hollywood, CA and had this to say:

The showpiece of the night was Davis under the umbrella of The Flutterbies (pronounced like a Spoonerism of butterflies). The solid songs include the engaging “Hummingbird Heart”— a song being lent to efforts to overturn Prop. 8 — and “Damn Glad,” a song that navigates the paradox of “Will I regret saying ‘good riddance’?” She travels that big-voiced Alannah Myles road with a more nuanced country feeling in the sound.

A full review of the evening, which also included solo sets by The Flutterbies’ guitarists Adam Daniel and Bart Ryan, is readable online here.

Thank you, James!
