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?

Dracula Driveway and Little Bear and the Bad Touch played an outdoor show at Cafe Orwell in Bushwick yesterday. We managed to dodge the rain perfectly – we got some drizzles between the sets that stopped just in time for the performances. All in all a laid-back summer afternoon show. Me and Mike Thies from Little Bear took turns snapping pictures. Here are a few of the best

I’m on an EP

My friend Abe is releasing the first Dracula Driveway release (called Hoquiam) and you can download or stream the audio for free by going to his website and clicking on the link marked “Dracula Driveway” in the top right corner. My contribution is the vocals and lyrics to the song The Opposites of Secrets are Lies (shortcut to the song by clicking here). The other artists on the album are Mikey “Freedom” Hart, Brittany Anjou, Mike Thies, and Avery Brooks.

Tracklisting:
Contemporary Hu Lu Si Music
Electric Shocks

I’m also finishing up work on a Justyn with a Y EP. I’ve been recording this one late at night in the basement of a haunted house in Bethesda, MD. This will be finished this weekend and I will be handing out FREE CDRs at my show next Tuesday. I will post more information about getting your own copy outside of the show when everything is done. Stay tuned!
