Years ago, Custom put out an album entitled "Fast". It was a great album, but it was on the experimental Artistdirect label and everything fell apart shortly thereafter.
I came on board Team Custom in 2004, rescuing the teamcustom.com domain from Artistdirect and helping out with the web parts while Custom recorded awesome new material.
That awesome new material hasn't seen the light of day, and it's a shame. I'm hoping he'll let me share some of the tracks one day soon so you can see what I mean.
Anyway, my involvement with Team Custom means I'm always getting emails asking where he's at and why he's not touring. If you're able to get to New York City tomorrow, this email I just got from Custom will be of interest.
Looking forward to seeing you Thursday, June 11th at 9:30 PM. Guastavino's 59th and 1st.
Thanks to all of you for your interest and support in The Jed Foundation. On the evening of June 11th, 2009, we will celebrate our collective power to improve and save the lives of young people struggling with emotional issues. We have a stellar evening planned as we honor Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy and Sheila Nevins from HBO for their contributions to the cause. We have Brittany Snow hosting the party, an amazing DJ as well as a special live performance by CUSTOM and open bar all night long!!!!
