Monday September 6 moved from Red and the Black to Dahlak

Well, it’s certainly been an eventful couple of days. I bought a new suit and watched the Night Cheese episode of 30 Rock (NOTE: I didn’t buy the suit to watch the episode). So I was woefully under prepared when our bicolored friends at the Red and the Black announced they have to close on Monday due to an unforeseen construction deadline.

Thanks to Peter Maybarduk and the band that bears his surname, we were able to scramble like tofu to set up a replacement gig that very same night at Dahlak in Adams-Morgan. This change carries a few key advantages over the previous show:

Dahlak is metro accessible (convenient to the U Street and Adams-Morgan stops)
Dahlak serves awesome Eritrean food
Dahlak admits all ages
Dahlak doesn’t charge a cover

…and Dahlak allows us to start the show earlier in the evening at 7 PM. This means all of you that can’t do a late weeknight in the Atlas District can ease into the fall with an evening show on the last day of the last weekend of the last summer of the year.

The lineup is still the same with Maybarduk and the Monkeys and me. Come on out! We can’t wait to see you.

Show added – Monday July 26 at Dahlak

Lou Black of Factor 21 Records and DC/VA chamber-pop decet the Ash Lovelies invited me to play a set at this month’s installment of their monthly singer-songwriter residency at DC Eritrean restaurant Dahlak. The restaurant is located in East Adams-Morgan or on the West end of the U Street Corridor (depending on your point of view). I’ve played with the Lovelies before and I approve of their ornate sophisticated sounds. And I’m also a sucker for any band with a guy that plays the guitar synthesizer.

The show will be starting at 8:00 PM with my set running from 9:30-10:00. Admission is FREE! FREE! FREE!

You know what I love? Free all-ages shows. Especially when they’re with old friends. Especially when those old friends happen to be incontrovertible musical geniuses. Saturday June 5th I’ll be motoring up to NYC to play a show with my old pals Avery Brooks and Abe Pollack. Believe me when I say these guys are on a completely different wavelength than most and are no doubt planning up some wildly creative mind-melters.

The following Friday I’ll be back in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed to play a show with Future Folk Records superheroes Green Grocer and Brooklyn reverbatrician Invisible Circle. This show might get a little bit intense and maybe just maybe a little bit awesome.

The first show will be part of Arts in Bushwick‘s Open Studios Festival with the Way Out Collective at their nondenominational studio in Brooklyn. In addition to hosting the event, the collective will be serving free food and drinks. The second will be at Stacy’s Coffee Shop in Falls Church, VA. This coffee shop is also nondenominational, however they will require money for use of their sustenance accessories.

Note: You may remember Abe from our duo last year, Dracula Driveway. Why not use this as an opportunity to revisit some of our classic collaborations like this one and this one?
