Woohoo! I just became an official D'Addario artist! D'Addario makes the BEST strings, and I've been using them since I was ten (no joke!!). It's a longtime dream of mine...I couldn't be more amped!!
I'll be going up to Canada in a few weeks to attend Folk Alliance, so I'm hoping more good stuff will come from that...at the very least, I'll be jamming with many of my friends and exploring Maple leaf country...stay in touch for my showcase schedule, which I'll post later in the week.
Ok! Now that the news is done, here's a couple of awesome shows for ya!!
Acoustic Tonight, Thursday, Jan 31, 9:30 pm: Bill Bell and I are playing a Garcia/Grisman-style set of drifting tumbleweed music at Brooklyn Fireproof, 119 Ingraham St at Porter (off of the Morgan stop of the L), Bushwick/Williamsburg. $5 gets you my show and true hipster cred!
This Saturday, Feb 2, at 11pm, the Ramblers reunite at The Living Room, one night only, 154 Ludlow St at Stanton! As some of you may know, the Living Room is shutting its doors after 10 years on Ludlow, and will reopen next spring, but to send off the old space, they asked us to put the band back together for one last show. The Living Room has been a huge part of our development as a band since 2008, and so of course we said yes!!
This is a FREE show, and if you've never seen us at Living Room, you're in for a treat. They have a real-live vintage Hammond organ, and we promise it will be SMOKIN' by the time Scott Stein gets through with it. Plenty of room for dancing, lots of seats, great sound (clear, crisp and not too loud!). Come out and shake your moneymakers. We're on at 11 pm sharp, following our good friends NickCasey and right before the very talented Rocket and the Ghost.
Please come to this show if you can. We're excited to get back together for you!!! Whatablast!!!
