The Grill is Hot and the Pool is Luke

Well… I tried to purchase tickets today to see Sufjan Stevens at the 400 Bar in September.  That didn’t work.  So, I ended up spending my day on an acreage in Lonsdale.  I played soccer with a delightful young lad and talked to some old friends.  I recently took a trip to the Dominican Republic.  It is poor.  It is also hot.  The people of the DR are made of stronger things than I am.  My roommate Ben is made of stronger things than most.  He volunteered at an orphanage outside of San Pedro DR for six weeks over the summer.  In other news, this same roommate Ben played some radical accordion takes on my new record.  Tor said he’ll be sending some rough mixes my direction this week.  I have a meeting with David on Wednesday to discuss release dates and such through Draw Fire Records.  It looks like the winter will descend before the record surfaces.

If you missed the show at the KCK last week, Karen stole the show.  Her singing was absolutely phenomenal.  Chris’ playing was equally phenomenal, but I wanted to give a shout out to Karen for a job-well-done on her first full-fledged Minneapolis rock set.  The next show I’ll be playing is this one http://www.mwsservices.org/index.asp?Type=B_EV&SEC={5B2BAF96-8E8F-47AA-8348-D1E6F5C03F5B} at the Mall-Of-America.  I know, I know… you’re saying “but Adam, the Mall-Of-America is weird.”  My response is two-fold: 1) The show is to benefit and raise awareness for adults with disabilities, 2) Nordstrom Rack is really excellent.
