1000 Plus

I’m pretty sure I’ve performed well over 1000 shows, especially considering how many I’ve played over the past five years around the Pacific Northwest, and I decided to try to compile a list of types of venues I’ve had the pleasure (usually) to experience so far:

Coffee shops
Festivals
Chocolate/Candy shops
Cannabis shops & 4/20 Events
Strip Club bar
Churches
Memorials
Birthdays
Super Bowl Parties
Protests
Proposals
Bachelorette Parties
Weddings
Streets in over a dozen countries
Hostels
Farmers Markets
Nature viewpoints
Rooftops
Dive Bars/Classy Bars/Biker Bars
Breweries
Gondola
Restaurants
Schools
Popup clothing shops
Fairs
Clubs
Theaters
Charity Events
Political Rallies
Trucks beds
Ferries/boats
Speakeasies

I’m sure I’ve missed a few, this is just a quick and dirty list, but it feels good knowing I’ve written songs that fit every situation, and it’s been wonderful to meet so many people from a gorgeous broad spectrum of humanity. I hope to see you at a show soon, wherever it might be.

Unwinding

It’s a very relaxing feeling when I have lots of guitar strings, I got a 10-pack to get me through the rest of the year. Come to my show this eve at the Dugout in Bremerton or this Friday at Murphy’s in Seattle to see if I know how to use these strings.

O Doctor! My Doctor!

The first episode of Jodie Whitaker as the new Doctor in Doctor Who airs tomorrow, I’m sure she’ll be awesome, but Peter Capaldi is the best best best Doctor ever. How many of his episodes will I watch today? Only time can tell.

Tom Petty Live On Vinyl!

It’s been a year since Tom Petty left us, but I just picked up this record over the weekend to spin today and keep him around a bit longer. It has ‘You Got Lucky’, ‘Southern Accents’, and a bunch more of my favs.

I See A Little Silhouetto Of A Cat

Orange Cat was taking advantage of the full moonlight to survey her territory last night. We are all grateful for her protection. She thinks this may be a good picture for her comic book cover, do you agree?
