This Weekend

First, I need to thank the wonderful folks who have been coming out to my shows, it has been delightful to hang out with you and sing songs with you. I have today (Saturday) off, so I’ll mostly just be promoting shows, but it’s nice to know that the busy-work is worth the effort.

Second, if you feel like adding some easy fun with live music and tasty brews to your weekend, you should hang out with us tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon at Outer Planet Craft Brewery on Capitol Hill. 3-6PM. No cover. It’ll be a nice low-key afternoon with good people and beers.




Tomorrow (Thur) At Outer Planet Brewing On Capitol Hill

Seattle friends, we’re going to be talking about science and positive news and singing songs at Outer Planet Brewing on Capitol Hill this Thursday, 6-8PM, no cover. Bring some cool science/space news if you have any, I’ll share it with the class.


The flier says 5-7PM, but it lies a little. 6-8PM.

See you soon!

The Beer Sonnetteer

Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to Phil Rose, The Beer Sonnetteer, a friend of mine who writes delightful Shakespearean sonnets about beer. He recently wrote a sonnet about Outer Planet’s IPA, Kumbaya Supernova, which is also named after my song, so it’s a nice tribute to a tribute. I’ve reposted it here and a link to his website where you can read his other poetic tributes to beers of many styles.

EPISODE 24: Kumbaya Supernova IPA

Outer Planet Craft Brewing “Kumbaya Supernova” IPA
(Named from the song by Saint John and the Revelations)

If you’re a cowboy roaming outer space
Driving your doggies under distant stars
On moon slit nights in some red-desert place
Monument Valley, say, or Planet Mars

You’ll need some ale to drink when you’re with friends
Around the campfire, singing “Kumbaya”
A special beer, with cosmic hops, that bends
Spacetime itself, as through a twisty-straw

So start with Extra Special Bitter malt
(A British Accent, just for Doctor Who)
Then add those hops (Northwest types, by default)
Chinook, Cascade, Citra and Simcoe too

And when there’s no more beer left in your cup
Cry “Allons-y!” and “Scotty, beam me up!”

And here is his website, keep in touch with Phil for future sonnets:




It’s A Good Evening For A Kumbaya Supernova IPA
