Every week the Wisconsin State Journal runs “Roughneck Grace,” a weekly column written by Mike (many of the columns will be adapted from Mike’s Tent Show Radio monologues). This week’s column ‘Michael Perry: Grace in the Ear of the Beholder‘ can be seen online here.
Something new. Subscription based, but the first couple of episodes are going out for free and we’ll also fire off some free content every now and then. A warmhearted thank you to all of you who have already subscribed. Mike continues to type, this is a nice way to bridge the gap when he’s not on the road. You can sample it here.
Perhaps you’ve heard S. Carey and M. Perry are streaming a show from the Pablo Center at the Confluence August 6 (free, but y’gotta sign up here) but you should also know we’ll be sharing the stage with Ben Lester. Maybe you’ve seen Ben playing pedal steel with the Long Beds, maybe you’ve heard him on the most recent Bon Iver album, maybe you’ve heard him all over the place and not realized it. He’s an artist in his own right, a journeyman in the best sense, the fishin’est musician I’ve ever toured with, and–I say this after some years of close observation and travel–a man of principle. I love sharing the stage with Ben and can’t wait for you to hear what he plays at the Pablo.
Workin’ on a thing. Make sure you’re on the Sneezing Cow mailing list.
