For Claiming Neptune, the New Year brought a new band member!
Around the end of January, we welcomed Jean Loustaunau to the group as our new drummer. Jean recently moved to Austin from Norwalk, Connecticut...near NYC, where he studied drums at The Collective School of Music, played in bands, and worked as a producer, engineer and studio drummer. We're all pumped to have Jean on the team and look forward to introducing him to all you Neptuners really soon!
In fact, Friday, March 10, 4:30 PM, at the Lit Lounge on 6th Street in downtown Austin will be the place! We're playing a two-hour set on the second day of the SXSW Festival...and the best thing: YOU DON'T NEED A BADGE TO GET INTO OUR SHOW!! So, come all ye Neptuners and bring your space cadet-friendly friends and help us represent Austin among the bands of the world coming to play our stages!!
To conclude this blog entry, we'd like to publicly thank our former drummer Josh for all his hard work and dedication over the last two-plus years...we wish him the best in all his future endeavors musical and otherwise! You'll always be part of the Claiming Neptune family, dude!
