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?

Feb Shows

I’ll be playing a couple of shows at the end of the month, one of which will be my first showing in NYC in almost a year. Both shows will be with NYC electronic pop provocateur Poingly. The DC show will also feature DC post-hardcore quartet the Escape Artist. These will be my first full sets of 2010 and should be appropriately exciting.

And don’t forget about the Bees’ show this Tuesday at Velvet Lounge!

More Pics

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

Moar show!

I have a band now consisting of me and my friend Abe. He plays drums, I play guitar. We are called Dracula Driveway, but you can also call us Coast of Nebraska, Brosphorescent, the Stepdads, Gutterpunk, or Sex Tourist. In fact you can also call me Adam, Mike, Benny, or Tony and you can call Abe Jonah, Steve, Harold, or Noah. We play loud, but you like it that way.

We are playing our first official show (it’s really our second) June 21 at Cafe Orwell in Bushwick. We’re going to be playing outdoors on an afternoon in late June. If it’s sunny it’ll be sweet.

SUNDAY JUNE 21

Life Update/Upcoming Shows in NYC

Do I live in New York now? Do I live in DC now? I can barely keep track of this crap, which is why I haven’t updated in a while. I’ve been intimate with a lot of couches over the past few weeks.

The show(s) must go on! I have 2 coming up. The first is a last minute slot at a talent show/benefit for the Woodshed Collective and the Open Space Alliance at Public Assembly. Special thanks to Abe of Little Bear and the Bad Touch and Heroin Dracula for making this one happen.

WEDNESDAY APRIL 22ND
NORTH BROOKLYN TALENT SHOW

Public Assembly – Front Room
70 North 6th St.
Williamsburg, Brooklyn
Show starts 8 PM (I’m on at 11:45)
$10, 21+

The next one after that is happening May 12 at Parkside Lounge in Manhattan. I played at this place last year and I liked it a lot. It reminds me a bit of an old vaudeville club, or maybe that’s just because it has tables and chairs and mood lighting. Also, this is coming 2 days after my 26th birthday so if I don’t see a lot of people come out my heart will be torn asunder.

TUESDAY MAY 12TH
JUSTYN WITH A Y

Parkside Lounge
317 East Houston (between Aves. B + C)
New York City
Show starts 8 PM
21+
