Hey thanks everyone who came out to the Phark last night, and then the real hardcore folks who joined us at the Firehouse. The responsible adult part of me is hesitant to report–but the 50 year-old-acoustic-strummer part of me is PROUD to report–that we had to turn down after receiving a noise complaint. So the thing is, we RAWK.
One of my favorite parts of “Bootlegged at the Big Top” is when I forget to go to the chorus of “How Many Miles,” and instead dive right into the bridge. The way you hear the band shift gears, catch me, and then drive on is the very reason that you get that little speech from me at most shows, the one where I get into the difference between MUSICIANS and Guy Who Knows Some Chords. Thank you, Long Beds!
It has been my privilege to share the stage with Mary Cutrufello and try to hang on as she kicks our Long Beds shows into high gear with her guitar. Now I’m happy to announce she has new music out–just click here.
Slipping a few new songs into the set list for the show at Phoenix Park in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, tonight. For more information on the show (with friends We Are the Willows and the Larry Past Trio) click here. And don’t forget, after the Phoenix Park show, we’ll lug our gear up the street to the Fire House and play some more. Also playing in Shell Lake tomorrow, and “Nobbern” Sunday.
I’m always ready to hear what Mary Cutrufello has to sing or say. Yale? Check. Texas roadhouse chops? Check. Telecaster built for the road? Check. Can back a FedEx truck anywhere you need it using nothin’ but the mirrors? Check.
