Saw a great show tonight

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

Very proud to present - the sunrise series, volume two. Happening this month at Flux Factory. Poster by Benedict Kupstas.

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

"8:26"

A few weeks ago, a few of my roommates and I decided to wake up early, pile in our friend’s tiny car, and drive to Coney Island to watch the sunrise for our friend’s photo shoot. We made it about a mile from home before the car broke down completely, in the middle of a crowded street in Greenpoint. We pushed the car into a parking space and carried the photo equipment home on the bus.

I couldn’t get back to sleep, so I climbed the roof with my camcorder.

Later I added audio from this recording I made with Alex Lewis.

Alex and I (plus Nico on bass, now!) are touring in April. Stay tuned for info.

Playing in Chicago on our upcoming tour in April.
When I’m on a bill with songwriters, I’m easily the weirdest in the bunch. When I’m on a bill with weirdos, I’m the only one singing songs!
This should be a good show.
