‘Sup tribe. Sorry for my extended silence. A momentous weekend approaches:
This Friday night, I’ll be opening for my friends Guella, a great warm improvising band. I’ll go on at 9pm, playing solo. It’s going down at the Abbey (a bar in San Francisco, 4100 geary at 5th). No cover, come and be cloistered with some nice nuns and monks…
On Sunday afternoon, I’m going to my happy place (to record!) at Ex’pression College in Emeryville. We’ll be working on a song called Smashing, that you may’ve heard live over the last couple years. Guesting on percussion will be Sam Ospovat, who’s in a lot of bands I admire.
I’ve been on a dance kick lately, took a class with a woman named Hiroko Tamano. She’s a bright light of a person, bringing Butoh dance to the Bay Area. Butoh is a modern dance form that comes from Japan. It first sprung up in response to the pain of World War II. Hiroko’s company will be performing next Friday Dec.10th, 7pm at the Berkeley Art Museum, with a live heavy metal band.
Nice to be a student again.
In HOME PHONE news, I’ve been trying my hand at mixing lately, and made some subtle changes to the record…If you can tell me which song sounds different, I’ll send you a free download… Say what? I love you.
Lastly, me and the band are playing in Sebastopol at Aubergine, Sunday Dec.19th from 4-7. This spot is incredible, it’s a big comfy hangar full of vintage clothes with a bar at one end. Many musician friends will be sitting in with us…it’s da holiday jam sesh!!!
There, the silence is broken! Hope to see you this Friday at the Abbey, more news soon.
