I’m doing a couple of solo shows to finish out 2010. This Thursday, September 30th, I’ll be playing my first show in Kansas City in over 5 years. I can’t believe it has been that long since I’ve been back. The show is at The Uptown Theater with Jimmy Wayne. I’m doing a very short set at about 8 pm. The show is a private event so I can’t help with tickets and this was a last minute booking so none of the clubs were available to do a public show. If anyone knows of anything for Friday, October 1st, let me know, would love to play!
The other solo shows are a quick tour through Vermont in late October. I’m playing Montpelier, Middlebury & Burlington. After that I’m off on tour as part of Sharon Van Etten’s band for all of November (we’re opening 20 shows for Junip) and then working on a new record in December & January.
Keep in touch!
Here’s the second installment of my tour video series, The Motel Tapes. I’m playing a solo version of “Skip James Radio” from “The Lucky Ones” while in West Virginia for a night. Check it out!
Some great things coming up just before I head out on tour!
The reissue of my remixed/remastered 2009 record, Here’s to Outliving Me, comes out next Tuesday, July 13th! It’ll be available everywhere in CD and digital format, there are some bonus tracks free with both options! Get a copy, get a copy!
To celebrate, I’m doing a last minute good time hometown show. The good people at The Mercury Lounge had an opening on the 13th and asked if I wanted to play it. I’m going to be doing a smaller version of my usual band and good friends. You should come, it’s going to be an absolute blast and I’ll be playing at least two brand new songs! I’m playing right about 8 pm!
In addition to all of that, the good folks at WHUS in Storrs, CT have asked me to come up and take over the station from noon to 3 pm EST this Saturday, July 10th! You can listen in live right HERE!
I’m going to be playing live, playing songs I like, talking about what I’m into and all sorts of other cool stuff, so tune in, it’s going to be a really fun show!
I’m just back from the New England shows which were a lot of fun. Ben Lord came with me and played drums and we had a blast. Thanks to all that came out.
I’m excited to announce that on July 13th, The Village Label will be reissuing a remixed/remastered version of my first solo record, “Here’s to Outliving Me”! It’ll be available everywhere on the 13th.
To celebrate, I’m going to play a bunch of shows in July! I’m hitting the road July 14th and playing shows until the 31st, playing a lot of the towns I hit in June (Pittsburgh, Columbus, Chicago, Champaign, etc). I’ll see you on the road!
