A purple room, a puppy, pizza and Sexcop

On the construction front, Jim painted the front room an electric purple (J Mascis will be happy):
And patched the wall above the circuit breakers:
James finished trimming the Ruby Room, painted all that trim and brainstormed ways to enhance the soundproofing of our sliding doors.
At long last, our electrician wrapped up his work yesterday — including installation of a stunning, green ceiling lamp in the live room (pix to come).
On the social front, Koko came to visit Saturday:
She was accompanied by Allegra and Niall Santo and their mom, Carole Filangieri, who all stayed for pizza lunch with Eric Neher.
In the musical arena, Bill brought in two more clients yesterday: Josh from Sexcop tracked background vocals for a long session starting in afternoon, followed by Harvey Valdes from The Cool and Deadly, who worked on guitar overdubs until midnight.
“The Kennel feels like home to me and the Sharp Things. We’ve recorded a few tunes at the studio thus far, with stellar results, and we’re breaking ground later this month on our fourth album and we couldn’t be more excited. The engineers are top-notch, the gear runs from sought-after vintage to state-of-the-art, and the overall vibe is friendly, cool and accommodating. And while the space is modest-sized, the acoustics are grand and there’s an enviable view of the Manhattan skyline.“
