Exploiting Eve's First Music Video Due Jan. 2002

We shot our first music video with D/K Films during our October 25 show at the Whisky. Catch up on the story here.

The latest word from D/K Films is that the video is due out in about 3 weeks, which would put us at around December 8. If we've been good to the Film and Video Gods, then we'll have an early Christmas gift to share with all of you. Otherwise, we'll play it safe and say that the video is due out by January 2002.

Either way, look out for our first music video, coming real soon.

Listen to our 95.5 KLOS debut!

Remember when 95.5 KLOS featured Exploiting Eve on its Local Licks show (refresh your memory here)?

If you missed the live broadcast, no problem. We got a copy of the 08/19/01 show and turned it into a short MP3 file that you can listen to/download from our SCRAPBOOK.

KLOS still has our disk and needs your input to keep it playing. Call the station at 800-955-KLOS to request more Exploiting Eve or send 'em a fax at 310-558-5642. Be sure to thank Kelly Cox for us while you're on the line.

Exploiting Eve Records First Music Video!

The October 25 show at the Whisky rocked! For those of you that were there, thank you for coming out. We hoped you enjoyed it as much as we did. For those of you that weren't, here's a quick recap.

D/K Films filmed the show and is including the footage into our first music video. The song for the video is "Out In The Rain." It was chosen by the band partly based on our fan input from the ExEve Poll.

The Whisky was pure fun when the cameras started rolling and the band started playing. The performance turned "so Hollywood" when, between licks, make-up and hair stylists attended to Janelle and the guys. The best part, and you had to be there, was when Janelle had her breasts blow-dried because she was working up such a sweat!

The video shoot was even more apparent as the band did a few extra and mid-song takes of "Out In The Rain." Despite the redundancy, the crowd cheered louder and louder every time. Last but not least, there was some storyline filming done with extras cheering and dancing to the band after the show was over! Now that's entertainment!

The Whisky show was presented by Art Aaronson and promoted by Unsigned on Sunset. Special thank to 95.5 KLOS Local Licks' Kelly Cox for being the evening's MC and doing such a great job of helping us out.

More info about the completion and release of the video will be posted as information becomes available. Check back soon!

Exploiting Eve on 95.5 KLOS a Success!

KLOS' Local Licks played three Exploiting Eve songs from "Getting Thru" on Sunday August 19.

DJ Kelly Cox saved the best for last when she started playing Exploiting Eve music at around 11:45P. First up was "Getting Thru" and then "Hang From My Line". Kelly Cox closed the Local Licks show with "Tuesday @ 10" and then several nice compliments about the band and a list of upcoming shows. Very cool!

We wrote to Kelly to thank her for her support and she replied, "i'm glad you all enjoyed local licks with exploiting eve. i really like your music and am looking forward to your set at the whiskey in october. cheers!" In another exchange, she continued to stroke our egos with "p.s. you're welcome. we'd be nowhere without music like yours to play!"

Exploiting Eve wins 1st round of Burst Music's Leader of the Pack competion.

Exploiting Eve played in week 11 of Burst Music's "Leader of the Pack" competition and emerged victorious. Here's how the promoter put it:

    Week 11 was a great evening!! We started off with an industry showcase from Ameba, excellent band, you can catch them at the Troubadour later this month.

    Dumfinger started the competition off next and despite a broken bass pedal, scored enough with our judges( 123.5) to come in runner-up. They have decided to replay on August 27th, replay night. Now with six bands on the lineup.

    Exploiting Eve exploded onto the stage next, and wowed the entire club. This band is solid musically as well as having a very dynamic stage prescense. Very intense! Exploiting Eve scored 215 points, took the lead and never looked back!

Look for Exploiting Eve in the semi-finals some time in September. You can read more about the competition at Burst Music's Message Board.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Exploiting Eve didn't win the "Leader of the Pack" competition. There were 48 bands entered and Ex Eve made it to the semi-final round where and came in second. The winner was Ex Eve's friends Numbria. Overall, Exploiting Eve came in 5th place. They had the best time and are proud of where they finished.

Exploiting Eve in the Rolling Rock Battle Of The Bands!

On 07/04/01, Exploiting Eve will perform in the Rolling Rock Battle Of The Bands held at the Hard Rock Cafe in L.A. Help the band get to the National competition and have a rockin' 4th of July. ALL AGES WELCOME. NO COVER.

John Vastano Wins "Party" Poll, Victor Stays Home

A recent poll from our website asked, "Which Exploiting Eve member do you think will party hardest when the group signs a record deal?"

The votes are in and John Vastano has won! John had 8 votes, many of which came in the last few days of the poll. He beat out Janelle, who had 5 votes, and Andres and Vincent, both with 1 vote each.

The poll also revealed that Victor Lozano is most likely to stay home the day the group gets signed. Victor had no votes. I'd watch it people, there's a wild man inside that solemn outer shell.

If you'd like to see the poll results for yourself, visit the POLL ARCHIVES.

Anyhow, we're proud to say that we've begun adding more music samples to the MUSIC section of the website. You can listen to WAV and MP3 samples, as well as RealAudio streams. Go give a listen!
