What You Missed: Jeremy Messersmith at The Cake Shop

10 Jan

Thanks to everybody who came down to An Evening of Murder & Death with Jeremy Messersmith at The Cake Shop. For those of you unable to make it down, we live-streamed the event, but since that link is not active anymore, here are some uploaded videos for posterity. Special thanks to Empty’s Tapes for recording sound and Chuck Olsen for shooting video, when those become available we will update this post. Until then, here are some of our own videos for your edification, a couple of new tunes and some killer covers, including the saddest country song ever written and what is sure to become the infamous Snoop Messersmith. (If you are viewing this post someplace else, like facebook, you may have to click through to the original CakeIn15 post to view the video.)

The evening was interspersed with anecdotes and backstories, some spontaneous hilarity (Che-bacca!) and famous last words. Messersmith came prepared with a list of death-bed quotations to punch up the “Murder & Death” portion of the evening, so here we humbly offer a collection of songs and last words:
