HALFSTACK Magazine Review our SPIN/House of Vans 4D Show!

Halfstack Magazine is a music and arts publication out of Chicago, and we had the pleasure of speaking to them following our 4D Live Music Experience at the SPIN/House of Vans party at SXSW just a few weeks ago.

We want to thank them for this fantastic review of our 4D Live Music Experience and want to direct your attention to their site.


"Upon entering Mohawk, I was handed a pair of 3D glasses and rushed into the standing room venue; goodbyemotel had just begun their set. The song "Hurricane" was blaring from the speakers and a translucent screen draped over the front of the stage while the band played passionately behind. Synchronized 3D projections flashed across the screen, blanketing the audience in a field of shooting star-like images. It was an atmospheric and mind-bending affair that blew not only my sense of sound, but also of sight in an experience unlike any other I've had the pleasure of taking part in."

Rochester Tour - BUSY DAY - TV, Radio and a 4D Show

We travelled to Rochester in upstate NY over the weekend of January 31st to perform in an old cinema known as The Little Theatre. The day was a busy one, with an early wake-up followed by a ride to the "Little" to perform acoustically live on FOX News Rochester.

Watch the Performance here:



Following us waking-up live on Rochester TV, we drove to WRUR Rochester Radio and performed an acoustic set to be heard on the air waves around the city. All the while rushing around Rochester, we would return to the Little Theatre to prepare for our 4D Live Music Experience that night.

In the afternoon, we jumped in the van, and drove across to the Record Archive where we were greeted warmly and we took the stage to do an in-store performance. Thanks for the good talks for those who we meet there!

Finally we got to the Little Theatre and premiered our 4D Live Music Experience that night to the city of Rochester. Our own Paul Amorese grew-up in the city, and was welcomed home in a big way.  A show like we have never done before.
