Well, well, well… the weather is starting to get beautiful here at the north pole… the nights are perfect for sleeping, the days are veering away from “beach” and towards “some-sort-of-long-sleeve-shirt,” and I just purchased some highlighters. You know what that means! Schoolz in! for! the school year!
Tor sent some rough mixes from the city of angels to my computer last week, and they are sounding mighty fine. The way the room mics captured the natural bounce and glow of the Colfax Attic is very apparent. I am really excited to start flushing out these songs in a live setting with Chris, Karen, and Ben. We are having a party at the Colfax House on Sep. 6 to raise money for Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos, the Dominican orphanage where Ben volunteered/resided for the summer. Musical guests will include: The Wapsipinicon, myself (w/ Chris, Karen, and Ben), and Coach Said Not To. It’s going to be a fantastic night. On Sep. 13, Chris and I will be playing a benefit for adults with disabilities at MOA sponsored by Midwest Special Services.
Also, make sure you check out the No Bird Sing release party at the Triple Rock in a couple weeks (http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/event.php?eid=110638381308&ref=ts). Those guys are amazing.
