Katie Von Schleicher and I are playing a set together at sunrise this Friday at Flux Factory. Here’s a small recording from our rehearsal yesterday.

The whole series is going to rule.

"Brilliantly, ecstatically, irrepressibly. That is the way to burn." -Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker

A couple of extra shots from the New Sky Tour

Wonderful photo by Sean Pierce. The dude does beautiful work.
The t-shirt in the photo was given to me by my college girlfriend Grace - it’s maybe my favorite ever piece of clothing and is also featured on this record cover.
The guitar I’m holding actually belongs to Asa, who played it in that band. The dent on the bottom of the guitar is from when I threw it across the room once playing at Shea Stadium.
The string on my guitar is a friendship bracelet my friend Laura Jane gave me.

Two choice quotes from the show tonight:

"Hello, Brooklyn! You suck! And you’ll only ever be able to read about Manhattan!!" -Arto Lindsay

"THUMBS UP TO THE UNIVERSE" -Lonnie Holley

Photos from our show at Guide to Kulchur, a rad and pretty new bookstore in Cleveland, OH. There’s an expansive space in the basement filled with patio chairs and zines and the guy who runs the place gave me a copy of a Tom Robbins book with a Keith Haring piece on the front. Rob Galo set up the show for us and played a good set of prepared guitar, which included ball bearings in an empty paint can and a bowed metal dust pan. We ate super cheap and plentiful food (hot dogs with fried eggs) and drank beers and stayed at our friend’s empty one-bedroom - the place is covered in post-it notes where potential wall decorations might go. He’s unsure on the Scimitar Rack. This morning we waited in light rain for the owner of the bookstore to let us in to get our things. We’re driving to Chicago.

Benedict also took a nice picture last night
