Accidents Will Happen

Phil and I had a flat tire on the way back downtown from rehearsal. I think at one point we may have been driving on a surface that isn’t usually considered as “road”, but it was dark and rainy and we really shouldn’t be nit-picky.

Everybody got home safe and sound, and we’ll live to play some rock-and-roll another day, like one of these: https://www.sjatr.com/shows

Welcome Back Hobbs!

We had a nice and tidy rehearsal yesterday, and it was good to have Eric “Hobbs” Habermeier (pictured left) back on guitar:

You can’t make Voltron without the green lion, it’s nice to hear Hobbs’ guitar in the mix again.

We’ll see you on Wednesday at the Can Can under Pike Place Market!

Revelating on a Sunday Afternoon

Dear friends, first off, I started my Sunday with the
realization that Red Rose Speedway by Paul McCartney is on Spotify.
Playlist saved, locked on repeat. And then we had a great rehearsal
this afternoon. This band is fekkin great, come and check out one
of our upcoming shows: www.sjatr.com/shows

After that, I got back and finished off a new song, and now I’m
just listening to Red Rose Speedway again with a cup of tea and I’m
going to finish a book lent to me by Phil Hirschi (who will be
playing cello at these upcoming shows with us).

As you can probably guess, I like the subject matter of the book.

Well, it’s 4AM and who could blame me for taking the wrong…

Well, it’s 4AM and who could blame me for taking the wrong way at this hour. But it was a super productive day, and my first day back in Venice so I’m making the most of it. We booked a show at the House of Blues on Sunset today, we’ll be playing on the 12th of May at 11PM. Bring your boogie pockets, we’re going to have some new stuff to show you and maybe even have something for you to take home…

Luca and I met up tonight and rehearsed for a few hours and discussed our audition schedule. We’re auditioning for bass players, keyboardists, and cellists, send me a note if you’re interested in coming around and jamming. Sometimes it’s a little bit fun, and sometimes it’s a lot of fun, it’s kind of up to you.

I met up with some really good musician friends tonight and they just finished up recording their record. I’m cheerfully jealous of them. Don’t worry, we’ll have our record done by 2049, your grandkids will love it.

2AM Chinese food saved my life. I’m missing some of the food up in Seattle though, flamed cheese at the Greek restaurant in Ballard was probably my favourite. I’ll be back in a couple of months for it, and maybe even some more work.

Well, I’ve been a lazy guest at this party and should rejoin them. G’night my dears!

Love,

SJ
