Real to Reel

Yes and what up?

A quick update on some of what's going down with what's coming up...

First of all, I have played several shows in the past months and have been enjoying a musically active summer playing festivals and other such gigs that have been embedded in sunny funny goings-on.

This last weekend I played at the Downtown Presbyterian Church in Nashville during the First Saturday Gallery Crawl. The 'Crawl draws 1000's of folks downtown for art gawking, free wine and live tunes.

The guys from Eastern Block played in the Arcade while David Hellams, Harvey Gerard and myself played the Church along with the Team from Welcome to 1979.

The cats from '79 are an analog recording collective/full blown studio on the west side of our fair city. The guys came in with the reel to reel and we recorded each of our sets to shiny, black tape; curling around itself like a noisy little viper. I just found out that I am also going get my filthy little hands on all the audio from my performance at the Kalamazoo art hop earlier this summer.

All of this archiving is inspiring me to find a new outlet for all this live/demo material. I recently began digitizing a bunch of stuff that I have on cassettes from the early 90's.

More on that soon.

For those of you in Nashville, I'll be doing a short set at Ugly Mugs coffee in East Nashville at 6:30 PM this coming Saturday, August 8.

See you there?
