We’re performing a fun full-band show this Thursday, April 21, at Queen Anne Beerhall in Seattle WA, 6PM, free entry, delicious brews and food in a cool European style beer hall.
Mary Anne will sing a semi-new song I wrote, ‘As Good As It Gets’, Oliver on drums, and Phil Hirschi on cello. Good times guaranteed.
We had a fun time jamming at Trencher’s Taphouse last night, Oliver was very groovy on percussion:

Sometimes when I’m writing a song I’ll wait and wait and wait to finish the last line of the last verse, unbelievable procrastination, and I think there are a few reasons why. First, I LOVE writing songs, and I never want it to end, it’s like a delicious meal where you never get too full. And second, I need to make sure the song is really finished, so I figure if I take a little longer, the best possible idea will have had time to percolate. Third, what if it sucks?! What if it sucks. And fourth, sometimes I just get too busy to make time to be focused enough to say “it’s done!”
Well, I decided yesterday to be finished with a new song, ‘As Good As It Gets’, and we debuted it tonight and it got one of the biggest applause of the night. I can’t wait to hear Mary Ann sing it.
Come to a show soon and see if you dig the new tune, I think it has some pretty cool bits in it:
PS. And thank you Oliver for letting me spring a new song on you on stage at a show, you’re a champion!
Here are some photos from our show Friday night in Port Townsend WA at Sirens, Mary Ann and Oliver sounded tremendous, and we had a fun time with a bunch of our friends and new fans, thank you for hanging out with us!:

Hi, Mary Ann, our second vocalist (in order of appearance, not quality), is on Twitter, you can say “hi” to her here:
She’s pretty friendly, and a wickedly good cook, we have delicious meals for band rehearsal, she might give up a recipe if you ask nicely.

Dear Portland Oregon, we had such a fun night singing songs and hanging out with you at the Hawthorne Theatre Lounge, and it was super nice to be able to have Oliver and Mary Ann on stage with me in one of my favourite cities, I think they’ve fallen in love with you too. Elke Robitaille and the Talbott Brothers were stupendous, we can’t wait to perform with them again, go check out there music if you haven’t heard it yet.
We are coming back to hang out with you again on Thursday Feb 25 at the Streetcar Bistro and Taphouse, see you soon!
