Sounds: Peachcake Tonight at Emo’s

31 07 2008

Peachcake will be bringing their Make Mixes, Not War tour to Austin’s Emo’s tonight. Formed in Arizona a few years ago, it was meant to be a joke project so that they can experiment with electronic music, but it turned into much much more. There isn’t much to be said that you can’t just read from their Myspace page. So we are just going to put it up below along with a video. The video was actually created for their live shows. Visuals are a big part of their tour so check it out.

Mission Statement

Peachcake is something that was created in hopes of making the world a safer, better, happier place for all the creatures inhabiting it. We team up with various individuals from time to time, who help further our quest, enhance our ideologies/enablement of creative endeavors, and see eye to eye on our desire to help people and improve the earth’s homeostasis. We do this by creating a fun, upbeat, positive message and environment through which our sonorous sounds, live application of our antics and music can be correctly conveyed and seen in a lighthearted, personable, and interactive way to thus see people smile, laugh, dance, and just plain…feel good! It’s all about spreading the understanding, acceptance, and greatness of vibes!

We love and listen to you for who you are, and encourage that you share that with the world to the greatest extent. May your innate, fundamental core of creativity shine and shout to the vast peaks and underground valley’s upon every inch of this earth with the most shimmering, loud light and sonic amplitude!

Greatness abound my friends…Spread the great vibes from the greatmorning, to the greatnight that encompasses our lives…
