MadCraft at Tubecon 2016

It’s that time of year again! Tubecon—the biggest YouTube convention in Europe—is coming to Helsinki, Finland. And we’re performing!

Not only are we playing a ridiculously over-the-top show on the main stage, we’re also doing a bunch of other stuff, such as Meet & Greets, and being nominated in the Finnish YouTube Awards as well.

Now, Tubecon can be somewhat overwhelming with all the people there and the vastness of the different stuff going on. […] Read more!

Pics from Virgin Oil Co.

We played a show at Virgin Oil Co. in our hometown of Helsinki, Finland last Friday. We’d played there once before opening for Bam Margera and just like then this time, too, was awesome!

Virgin Oil Co. is a nice venue. The stage is big enough for you to really enjoy playing there. Thought I’d share a few great pics from the show with you guys.

Anyway, we had so much fun. And thanks goes out to everyone there! […] Read more!

Right on Kamppi

Tom

Tom

We played at the Kamppi Center in downtown Helsinki last Friday and I got to say, it was pretty awesome! Or maybe even more than that. It was f’in insane!

Kamppi is one of the biggest shopping centers in Helsinki with two bus terminals, so it wasn’t a surprise that there would be people there. In addition to that our showtime was at prime time at 5pm when there’s most traffic going through. But still! […] Read more!

The story of a drum stick, starring me as a fan girl

Otto

Here I am, having a relaxing weekend, time to scrape some blog text! First of all, I have a new drum cover out in case you haven’t noticed. This time we’re serving some All Time Low, the song being one of the many cool tunes off from their latest album Don’t Panic. And by cool I’m foremostly meaning the drum parts. As I have mentioned earlier, I love how the ATL-drummer Rian Dawson has kept his drumming genuine and complex during the years of the band evolving from a small pop punk band to a world-known rock band.

Happy Song for bass!

Jesse

Jesse

Howdy!

I finally had some spare time to make you a full score of Happy Song’s bass lines! I made both, notation and tabulatures and you can download them in the end of this post! I chose Happy Song because it has all the basic punk-bass habits going on in there… really fast syncopated picking, some melodic lines and holding the bottom of the song. This might be my favorite bass track I have recorded in years and I really wanted to share it with you all! […] Read more!

All Time Low coming to Finland!!!

Tom

Otto

Here’s a thing that made my yesterday:

I got a message from a friend, to whom I actually teach playing the drums. Not long ago we were checking out a gig by Limp Bizkit, which needless to say was awesome. During the aftermath we talked about bands we’d like to see live. The first and brightest wish in my mind was of course All Time Low coming to Finland one day. And this was the message I got yesterday, All Time Low coming to Finland. […] Read more!

Hard-working musician or hardly working?

Jesse

Jesse

Hi Y’all!

I haven’t really talked about me trying to “make my living” as a professional musician. Sometimes I think it might affect a little bit on my credibility as a “rock-musician” when I play wedding gigs and party gigs with my suit on. Or when I teach kids in elementary school and try to act like a grown up teacher! Haha, Imagine THAT! 🙂

Well, I am really blessed that in Madcraft the guys are super-understanding and positive about these things! […] Read more!
