Hi Ho Hi Ho It's Off To Promote I Go...
And a good morning to all of you! I'd like to begin by thanking Magpie Bookshop and the many lovely people who came out to welcome me in my first gig in my new hometown! Went to bed all warm and fuzzy and, admittedly, still a little sweaty. Looking forward to singing to your pretty faces many more times (including at next week's Farmer's Market!).
The BIG news for the month is the ONE NIGHT ONLY REUNION SHOW of THE WAY HOME. For those who came later: The Way Home was the last band I fronted back in Philadelphia, with whom I made this delightful little record more years ago than I find possible (don't have it? Buy it! We can use the money!). Dear friends all, and we spent hours and hours in sweaty rehearsal spaces and cramped vans, taking the gospel according to TWH around the Northeast. But it came to its end, as these things tend to, but we never really got a blowout farewell show. UNTIL NOW. We'll be back, in an ultra-rare five-piece form, opening for our great friends Venice Sunlight's long-awaited record release, and the reunion of ANOTHER of our favorite bands, The New Connection. Doors at 7:30, show at 8 ON THE DOT, we open it up, and you do NOT want to miss this. Tickets are on sale already, and it's not a huge room, so get em now before they sell out!
Got some other shows this month, too, that should not be so loud, but should be a hoot. Incidentally, if you know any one in/near Burlington VT, tell them about my show this Sunday? Because I don't...really...know anyone in/near Burlington VT.
