Did anyone else hear "Leaving her alone" on Big Shots tonight?? Unfortunately, they didn't give Ari any credit for it. But it was still cool to hear Ari on TV! :)

[ mood | calm ]

hey all, I just joined. :)
I'm kind of a newer fan of Ari, but definitely got the pleasant surprise of seeing him perform last night at my college (Grand Valley State Unv, outside of Grand Rapids, MI). We had this big end of the year concert last night with a bunch of local bands & a couple headliners: Allister & Reggie and the Full Effect. A friend and I went, more out of curiosity & cos we love live music (honestly, punk/rock/hardcore stuff isn't my thing). In between sets, the emcee was introduced as "Ari Heiss", and I didn't think anything of it. But then he came up w/ his guitar, and was like, "Actually, it's Ari Hest." It took me a second, but then I realized that I had heard of him before, had actually downloaded (and loved) a few of his songs off this blog. The flyers for the concert hadn't even said anything about him! So he performed a couple of his songs ("Come Home" being one), and no one was really paying attention, cos he was basically filler music. But I was kinda freaking out, because I recognized him and his voice is really amazing. He performed later too in between the sets, and he did a cover of Rufus Wainwright's "Hallelujah", which was simply wonderful.
The best part was, I got to meet him afterwards. :) I just told him how much I had loved his stuff, asking if he was on tour, etc. He said how bizarre this whole thing was, because he was the emcee for a bunch of bands whose music was possibly 100% different than his. haha But he was very friendly and down to earth. It was definitely the highlight of my night.

So yea, all that just to say, I'm a big fan now. He's definitely one of my favorite newer artists I've "discovered." Glad to find a comm where I can spread the love. :p

"spring is drawing near..." [23 Mar 2006|10:14am]

If you're interested in free - follow these directions:

1. Pick a show from the list below.
2. Post your name.
3. Post your email.
4. Post one of your favorite Ari lyrics and why.

We all know how I am with all that B&P business, so forget that - just enjoy the music and pass it on - and that's good enough for me! The shows I'm offering are all more recent shows that include his newer material - because with the new record coming soon, it's all about the new!

I'll open it up until 4/7 - when I go on Spring Break.

Ari on Laguna Beach [07 Nov 2005|12:51pm]

[ mood | good ]

For anyone who didn't see the e-mail, "Strangers Again" will be played on Laguna Beach tonight! The show airs at 10PM (Eastern Time) on MTV. Check it out, and listen for the song. There should be lots of drama, because Jason kissed Jessica in front of LC last week. Thats a BIG NO NO!! hahaha... It's sad that I'm so interested in high schoolers lives.

Anyways, Ari's also playing another NYC show at CODA. Saturday, December 3rd @ 9:30. The website has all the info. Tickets are on sale today.

Get the "Guilty Hearts" EP today! [14 Oct 2005|01:20pm]

As some of you probably know, Ari's new "Guilty Hearts" EP is now available for sale by reps...

It's 5 songs - new songs - and also video footage and commentary. [b]The best part - it's only $6 and I'll ship it to you for FREE!!![/b] Reps are allowed to sell them for $7 and make a $1 profit, but I'm not in it for the money, I'm in it to get as many people as possible to listen to this wonderful music!

I have been a fan of Ari's for many years and I truly love pretty much all of his songs, but I can honestly say that I haven't been this excited by new music of his since I first discovered him - the EP has been on repeat since I got it.

If you're interested, send me an e-mail and I'll give you the details of where to send the money. I'll even throw in some Ari/Marc Broussard/Other swag (stickers, cd samplers, etc).

Who wants to go on The Rock Boat? [24 Aug 2005|11:36am]

Hey everyone - a friend I met on the boat last year has to sell her spot - she's not a computer person and so I said I'd post here for her. Here are the details...

I'm Elizabeth and I have to sell my spot on The Rock Boat. :( I am selling it for $570 (what I paid). It will be a 4-person room with 3 other kick ass people. I went last year and had the most AMAZING time, but I am a full-time college student and I just was recently involved in a car wreck and so now I am not able to afford the trip anymore. I would love to hear from someone ASAP if they are interested - I'm not message board savvy, so I'm having my friend post this for me and anyone interested can e-mail me at Ebowman7@hotmail.com.

Ari Hest Set Lists [19 Aug 2005|04:19pm]


In light of the recent ezboard crash, it crossed my mind that it might be nice to have Ari's set lists maintained somewhere else other than his message board. I'd love to do this, but clearly I'll need some help filling in the gaps with the lost set lists. I know lots of fans keep these; so if you are one of those, please email me or reply here and let me know.

Obviously the shows that were taped and uploaded to archive.org or other sites will have the set list, so it's the shows that were not taped/uploaded to the web that I'll need.

If you can be of any help, please email me at margiecb@sc.rr.com or reply to this entry - thanks!

Monsters - solo? [27 Jun 2005|08:46am]


Does anyone have a good, clear version of Ari playing Monsters solo?  I'd like to put it on my new baby CD but the only solo one I have isn't the best recording.  Just checking.
