We’re very happy to be playing this show set up by SDM PDX.
Uneasy Chairs (sea)
Withering of Light
A few years ago, John Niekrasz and I went on Sean Ongley’s KBOO show and recorded this session. Give a listen.
Alma Freer just came back from an incredibly short “tour”. We played Olympia at the Northern with Malakait dan Singa, Arc ov Light and Ruby Fray and we played The Blue Scorcher in Astoria with Gregg Skloff, Turtle and Andrew Weathers/Ryan P. Jobes. Great shows. Thanks so much to everyone who made that happen. Really wish we had the Northern and Blue Scorcher here in Portland. Also Fort George. And the sea lions.
Two events in September:
The debut of Halfbird on 9/17 at the Outset Series at Revival Drum Shop.
Also, I’ll be on a panel to discuss improvisation in and out of performance as part of the PJCE’s happy hour at the Lucky Lab on North Killingsworth at 7:30 on 9/2. Also on the panel are Darryl Grant and Linda Austin. Yow.
Thollem McDonas asked me to join him back in April of 2013 to play with Gregg Skloff, Chris Jonedis and Fletcher Nemeth at Backspace. He wanted it to be a sort of lounge music feel. Not sure we achieved that but it was definitely an honor and pleasure to play with these fine folks.
