We went festival hopping last weekend!! First stop was the APW Festival on Friday night. It was by coincidence that the logistics were pretty easy. Both of the friends we stayed with happened to live within blocks of public transit we needed to take. Getting a good night’s rest the night before…Here’s me snuggled deep… Read more »
The Beanstalk boys played a pretty amazing set the other night at Iota. Another one down. They’re at Black Cat in about a week if you don’t want to miss out. Brett’s keys were angled in just the right direction to make funny faces at me and Natalie. Also of note, Iota has newly renovated… Read more »
You’re officially a nerd. I thought Brett couldn’t top himself after getting 100% and 98% on his Geology exams. These pictures were taken at a Borders (fittingly) in New York a few weeks ago. Now he’s done and gotten the highest grade in his class. … Geology of all subjects. It’s a trip to hear… Read more »
I had no idea that’s what I was standing in the midst of. Absolutely no pushing or shoving. Everybody was just collectively enthralled by Radiohead. 70 thousand people at this festival !

Some weirdass shit for sure. And that was in… Read more »
At home all nite with illness. Not good for a hypochondriac…I’m convinced it’s something serious. Damn my wimpiness. I heard the Jukebox and These United States show at Ft Reno was killer!
Ragged Glory played Iota Sunday night! This is Ryan and Dave Eelman’s Neil Young cover band. They opened for the Last Waltz, the cover band for The Band. I played vio and sang backup on a couple tunes. Looking back I shouldn’t have because I was already feeling under the weather from the weekend of… Read more »
We bust our asses to tour and play music mainly because we love it… “Everything else is just hot air,” to quote Karl Malone in one of his shoe commercials back in the day. (Em and I used to get such a kick out of that commercial). Still nothing beats a few of the kindest… Read more »
yeehaw. check out the little gem of an article written by arts writer Lynne Venart, who we also met in a surprise encounter at our Black Cat show last Saturday.
Last Friday night, suzi and I found ourselves back at Inner Ear Studio, recording strings for fellow musician, Alex Nixon of Zulu Pearls. Produced by Nick Anderson (also of Zulu Pearls), the 3-song record is dubbed Submarine of Survivors — sounds dark and beautiful already… actually, what we’ve heard of it is indeed very beautiful….
