Yeah Yeah Yeahs Say NO! NO! NO! To Cam Blockers

A Bloody Good Way to Can the Cam at Shows

I thought I was pretty up on tech, after all I visited Cupertino and got an effin t-shirt to prove it…

Until I went to see Barack Obama speak at Prague Castle in… what? 2009?

Anyway, as soon as the Commander in Chief stepped up to the mic, a thousand hands shot in the air with bleedin smartphones. I stand a reasonable 6’2″ in my Fox River socks, and could hardly see him for cam-spamming. It’s not like it wasn’t going to be on the Internets, like, forever…

It’s all too easy to imagine the plight of the vertically challenged, now they have to compete with a forest of extended arms a-blinking.

That’s why it’s a refreshing change to see the Yeah Yeah Yeahs make an appeal to their audience that manages to get the job done without pissing people off.

yeah yeah yeahs

I didn’t take a cam to see B/O in the CZ, as I wanted to be there in the moment. So instead, here’s a random photo I took while in my fave city, San Francisco.

Cafe Na Pul Cesty Show… Better Late Than… Bleh

Thanks to all you lovely people – you roque us!

As the title says – thanks for coming to the show!

I’ve been sick as a small puppy in a box since then, and had to get my biz back on track, so haven’t had the time to let you guys know – you roqued!

Also, thanks to Tomas and the bar staff for making us feel welcome. We had a fab time.

Prague's best rock band

Trey Roque Playing Concert at Cafe Na Pul Cesty

7 March, Doors 20:00

Trey Roque will be playing a concert at Cafe Na Pul Cesty next week, on 7 March.

Doors open at 20:00, and it’s donations only – no tickets!

The venue is also known as Green Doors, but don’t let that confuse you. If you don’t have a smart phone, use the handy map below and print it off.

The band will be playing all the songs from their new EP*, plus many more favourites and – as always – some new tunes! Their tireless work at the coalface of roque’n'roll is never done.

You can buy download singles from the store on CDBaby, at iTunes & Amazon, or their 4-song EP CD at the show (100Kc). The boys will be more than happy to write a personalised message on every CD you buy.

All proceeds, as ever, go towards keeping the engine running on roque’n'roll history.

(BTW, we know the website calendar isn’t showing future dates – but we have it in hand, and a real proper calendar will be up quicker than an egret in an eerie. Thanks for the feedback!)

* Here at Power’s Towers, we call it “The Eagles EP”.

We also got a lovely review from Adriana over on Musicweb. Polish your Czech! (Or use Google translate and a soupcon of imagination).

TREY ROQUE EP

Trey on Wood – Acoustic Show at Potrva

Singer-songwriter Extravaganza!

Hey music lovers.

I’ll be doing a solo stint at the lovely Potrva open mic night. This is a chance to hear songs that I don’t play as part of the *roque act*.

There will also be some fab local acts playing, and the night is very Czech-friendly. It’s also non-smoking! Fab!
