New Shows in the New Year

Season’s greetings everybody! I’ve finally written enough new material to feel justified about breaking hiatus. You’ll have a chance to catch me back on stage on Sunday January 16 at the Velvet Lounge with my old friends Peter Maybarduk and the Echo Wall. Monday the 17th is a holiday so come on out and don’t be shy about staying out late.

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.

I’ll be coming back at Stacy’s Coffee Parlor in Falls Church, VA at the end of July for a special acoustic set with musician, teacher, blogger, and good friend Simon Chaos. Simon will be doing a special classical guitar set. Now I know what you’re thinking, “Unamplified guitar sets at a parlor in the evening… sounds like wine-tasting music.” Well, you would be wrong about that because Stacy’s does not serve any alcoholic drinks. So, gentle reader, the joke is on YOU.

Stacy’s shows are always FREE and admit ALL AGES.

Then in September I’ll be playing in DC proper at the Red and the Black on H St. NE. The Peach-Stealing Monkeys will be kicking things off with their sprightly folk-jazz. You may remember the Monkeys from my May show at the Velvet Lounge when they played in slightly reduced form as the Fillers. This time they’ll be out in full force… and they’ll have hemiolas. Human rights activist and singer/songwriter Peter Maybarduk will close out the night. Maybarduk worked with DC legend J. Robbins on his last album, the latin-flavored No Hay Pueblo Vencido. I’m fairly impressed and ready for an exciting night. 9 PM marks the time that a-doings will be a-transpiring.

This summer I’m going to experiment with a new more personal blog format. I’ll still post music news and show dates, but I’ll be mixing in some less cut and dry posts about music, books, and whatever else I’m digging at the moment. I’m thinking about putting up the first installment in the next 2 weeks or so, so keep your eyes open!
