Portland pals! I'm taking the weekend off to celebrate my little dude's 2nd birthday (!!), but there's a great show you should check out today: my good buddies Tallulah's Daddy, Pointed Man Band and Paul Brainard are rocking out together at First Unitarian Portland (my family's church!) to raise funds for a mosaic restoration. Show at 3pm; cover is only $5! Check it out. ...
Hey folks! Bummer news - I caught a stomach bug last night and am not feeling up to performing at Mississippi Pizza Pub tonight. Luckily, tonight is my joint show with Mo Phillips and Johnny & Jason, so the show will go on! J&J will kick things off at 5pm, followed by Mo, followed by a 3-piece Soggy Buns set. You should still totally go! Sorry me & the Critters can't be there :( ...
Bob Dylan, wherever you are right now, I hope you are smiling.
