Jerkatorium followed up the "Hope You're Having A Nice Time In Jamaica" victory with a sub-par vote count in the "It's Not Over" Song Fight, garnering a total of only 5 votes and putting us in a four-way tie for 7th place out of 13 entries. It's probably my fault we were so soundly trounced; Chumpy sent me a nice, laid back song, and I turned it into gimmicky schmaltz with a punchline.
Since then work travel prevented me from doing much of anything, music-wise. In the meantime Chumpy and Zoom submitted again as Margaret Benson and the Cheese Trio for the "Be What You Want" Song Fight, contributing a one-chord masterpiece that somehow only got three votes despite universally positive reviews on the SFBB. Chumpy also submitted alone as Chumpy and the Bitfields to the current "Meeting Street" Song Fight, and it's clearly the best of the bunch - you should listen to it and vote for it. I'm working from my home office this week so Jerkatorium has no excuse for not submitting to the "No Rush" Song Fight, so that will almost certainly happen.
It looks like Jerkatorium is going to be playing a short set live at Song Fight! Live 2015 in Portland, Oregon on either August 14 or August 15, 2015. The schedule is not quite finalized yet, I'll let you know when it is. We're hoping we get a slot on Saturday night August 15 so that Chumpy and I have some time to rehearse together Saturday during the day, but we'll take whatever they give us. The Friday set (again, we're hoping we won't have to perform in that one) will be at Culmination Brewery:
And the Saturday set will be at Mississippi Pizza:
More specific information to come as soon as I get it.
