I'm back in SF! Susan Appe, Slow Motion Cowboy, and I will rock on 8/31 @ The Pleasure Zone (aka Simple Pleasures Cafe)! If you're in SF next week come on out.
So here I am in Austin! We passed Jesus on his allosaurus in Lubbock, Texas. He was riding with Johnny Winter who was on an old schwinn 10-speed. I didn't know Johnny was having such a rough time.
Jeremy Bleich, Andrew Stoltz, and I rocked the Cherrywood Coffeehouse last night. Thanks to the hundreds who came out and had their faces melted. For the few who missed it, we will be playing one more Austin gig tonight at Flipnotics tonight. The show starts at 6:30. Then we pack it in again and move on to New Orleans for a show at Neutral Grounds Coffeehouse on Monday, June 13th @ 10pm.
So I've been traveling for one week now. The drive to San Diego was easy and uneventful other than a Mercedes SUV on fire just north of LA which which the French have speculated started the fire in Arizona, but the Germans say it was the Irish. Viva La Mexico. San Diego was sunny and warm and I spent a day at the beach shark surfing. The doctors said skin graph should take by mid July. A day later I was back on my feet and spending the afternoon playing frisbee golf with my girlfriend Chiara, her cousin Dave, Jack Nicholson, and Tiger Woods. We were surprised to recieve a text from Anthony's Weiner approaching the 6th hole.
Thanks to Dave for opening his home to us.
The show at Mueller College felt like the rapture! It was a nice turnout and everyone was allowed to enter. I will be posting videos and pictures on myspace and facebook soon.
Immediately after the show in San Diego we left for Santa Fe, New Mexico. Just a short time into our trip we had a close encounter with John Law and his poochie. Yuma is safe once again!
We arrived in Santa Fe at 2pm Saturday afternoon and to our dismay Jeremy Bleich was jumping cactus' and tumbleweed on his '73 Honda 360cc rocket bike. He took an unfortunate dive when he heard us rocking Yes' "Long Distance Run Around" on the stereo as we parked. Luckily no one was hurt and we made it to the house concert on time. Evarusnik and Kelly Mcfarling brought it down and I was told Jeremy and I killed it.
We leave tomorrow for Austin!
I digitally released three new songs in January. One is a cover of Neil Young's "Harvest". Below are the song titles and links to ITunes.
"wake of destruction"

Welcome to the new website! Thanks to Rachel Ma for her efforts in putting the site together. I am pleased to tell you that there will be a new recording released within the next couple of months. It will feature Kurt Kotheimer (bass) and Josh Smith (drums, hammond, saxophone). We have been playing music together for close to a decade, and finally will have documentation of our trio.
I will also be traveling to Santa Fe, NM this month to play music with Dave Wayne (drums), and long time friend and collaborator, Jeremy Bleich (bass). In October, I will be visiting my hometown, Cleveland, Ohio, for a couple of shows as well. Check back for dates and venues.
I would also like to point out that there are recordings on this sites’ mp3 player featuring The Inbetweens, Brian Jones, Stewart Myers, Jessie Harper, and Daniel Clarke that have not yet been released. Thanks, and enjoy!
