Thanks to everyone who came out to see us on our recent tour of the Northwest. We tasted it all, from the windy valleys of Yakima, WA, through a blizzard on chain-less tires over the Snoqualmie Pass, across borders, around the pristine islands and shining sun en route to Swartz Bay and Victoria, under the persistent rain of nature’s car-wash that includes the drive down from Seattle to Portland. It happened so fast, and nowhere near Texas.
Great crowds, nice people, friendly soundmen. What more can you ask for?
Now back in San Francisco, a bunch of stuff is going on, and it gives me great pleasure to announce a few awesome events I suggest attending, a couple of which I’ll be playing records at. If you find yourself in the Bay Area, please consider dropping by.
First off, a congratulations to Alissa Anderson, former bandmate and merch lady extraordinaire, who is opening her new boutique this week in San Francisco, Foggy Notion. There’s going to be a nice opening party this Friday with a lot of good people, unique handmade items, and several of the designers there to celebrate.
On March 24th, out at Mollusk Surf Shop, my good bud Nathaniel Russell, fine illustrator, songsmith and designer of the past few Vetiver album covers, will have a solo show of new work. He’s kindly asked me to dj for the occasion and I am stoked to be doing so. Don’t miss!
And finally, the fine folks at Noise Pop have invited me to play some favorites over at Blowfish Sushi for their Blow Pop happy hour series on April 4th. Cheap drinks, tasty tunes and delectables…a winning combination!
It’s good to be back in S.F.
