Magii – Into the Forest with Magii

On Saturday, I played a show at the LA Lottery League with a band called Magii. The band was put together randomly as part of the LA Lottery League, and even though I’d previously met all of my bandmates I didn’t actually know any of them. We had a good time becoming friends, and we crafted three songs of which we’re all proud. I sing background and play guitar and keyboard on this record, which sounds quite different from the music I’ve normally made.

Thanks so much to the Council of Chiefs, who made the LA Lottery League happen! It was such a brilliant idea, and it had such excellent results all-around.

Into the Forest with Magii was produced by me and Joaquin Pastor.

True to the speedy and random nature of the Lottery League itself, I created this hodgepodge of imagary in 60 minutes using only an iPod:

Saturday: LA Lottery League

Oh, so this is happening…

LA Lottery League – THE BIG SHOW (RSVP on Facebook) Saturday, February 26 at Project Infest, 3201 Maple Ave. 90011. $5.

Modeling themselves after the original Lottery League in Cleveland, a “Council of Chiefs” has randomly created 12 new bands from a pool of Los Angeles musicians. I’m involved, as are Tyler and Duncan from Pizza!.

On January 29, we were split into our new bands. Mine is called Magii, and it features Bizzart and members of Masks and M31. For a month, we’ve been writing and rehearsing our set. It’s been rewarding to work with these people, none of whom I knew very well before this adventure. I’m stoked about the results. I’m also excited about all of the other bands – the show is sure to be eclectic and entertaining.

Here’s the logo for Magii. It was created by bandmember Matteo Himes:
