i've been enjoying a lot of nights off(or trying to enjoy, i get a little squirmy) ...anyhow, thats starting to change this weekend. i'll be back with the new primitives thursday dec 1st at nye's. always a pleasure to play the reggae/world beat with these dudes. Saturday the 3rd i'll be at hell's kitchen 6-9pm with james buckley and bryan nichols, then cruising to my first gig at the new club in st paul the amsterdam. i'll be playing 2 sets there, 10pm with Erik Koskinen band, the midnightish with All Tomorrow's Petty, a lovely tom petty cover band with James Diers(Halloween Alaska) Jacob Hanson(Halloween AK, Mason Jennings) Robert Skoro(Mason Jennings, Brand new super-dad) and Joey Kantor(Rogue Valley). we basically have way too much fun playing tom petty songs.
next week i'm back at it with Zacc Harris Quartet(w/ Chris Bates, and Bryan Nichols) at the Black Dog Cafe at 8pm, then zipping to 7th St. Entry for Marijuana Deathsquads set(10:30ishpm) for P.O.S. ' night of the Doomtree Blowout. After that I shift my focus to a new group "Boxcar" with Jeremy Walker(piano/compositions) Anthony Cox(bass) and Wessell Anderson(saxophones) we'll be playing in Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Denver...more info on this soon.
