Band and life


Thanks to everyone who came out to our show tonight at Gonzaga High School in Washington DC, a benefit concert for Haiti. We had a great time; the crowd was amazing! I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Pictures will be up on Facebook and the website’s photo section by Tuesday.


We made over 150 demo cds, and gave them out downtown. The CD features two tracks: Alone, (Music Video) and Carpe Noctem, a newly released track. We made demos like these before, back in July, for our show Fort Reno. They were a huge success, both times.

To celebrate the birthday of Sarah Massey, Power Pirate and a serious crowd braved the snow on February 8th to rock out to the Velvet Lounge.

Results from California

The results are in: Power Pirate was ranked third overall by the panel of judges, from the over 200 original submissions. Additionally, Emily won best overall guitarist, and Mike won best keyboardist. We have had a ton of fun, and are eternally grateful to everyone who made this possible: our fans, Massey Media, our schools, our friends and family, and all of the organizers of the NAMM SchoolJam program. Thank you!

Press Release:

We have uploaded photos on our website. Enjoy!

Emily's Project

Emily brought the vocal booth in to school to demonstrate how Power Pirate had recorded. Students enjoyed crawling inside and singing along to instrumental versions of songs. Many were surprised by how small and uncomfortable it was, and that the only way to get in was by crawling under a table.
The trouble of the presentation was bringing all the mattresses down a large flight of stairs! Please make a mental note to yourself that if you ever want to bring a mattress booth anywhere, make sure your destination has an elevator. 🙂

Updates and New Online T-Shirt Store!

So, as you may have noticed from the Power Pirate Twitter & Tumblr accounts, there has been a surge in Power Pirate activity in German. Yes, there is a new German Power Pirate website. There is a German press release out. And lots more. This is all thanks to a super-fan in Germany named Falko, who has been helping us with creating a plan on how to further expand our German audience and with TRANSLATIONS.

Enjoy! We’ll keep everyone posted.
