Here’s a video journal from the trip home: Yesterday afternoon, I made the 3-hour journey to Duluth to play a 3-hour set at Fitger’s, a local bar/restaurant with immense popularity up there. It was an interesting show for me and reminded me more of my days playing Thursday night shows at Sportsman’s Pub than of… Continue reading Duluth, MN!!!

Rather than risk getting my guitar confiscated by the gestapo in St. Paul, I decided to forgo tonight’s show in St. Paul, instead opting for the much greener pastures of basketball at Chowen Park in Minneapolis. I am happy to report that Jamie and I quickly dispensed of two high school ballers, proving once again… Continue reading Station 4 Gig Tonight Cancelled
I was over in St. Paul, where the Republican National Convention is taking place, and the police make that area REALLY scary to be in. A bunch of people had stuff confiscated without cause in the last few days (cameras, tools, pamphlets), and I am not sure that I want to risk losing my guitar…so… Continue reading Gig Tomorrow at Station 4?
I just got back from Jungle Red Salon, where I played a fun 45-minute set. The crowd seemed to dig the show as well, which is always nice. 😉 Next show is Wednesday at Station 4 in St. Paul during the Republican National Convention. I go on at 8 p.m. and will be sticking it… Continue reading Jungle Red Salon
The show at Station 4 last night was memorable more for its sparseness than for its rowdyness. I played my set to a crowd of 5 staff members and 3 patrons. BUT it should be noted that BOTH the staffers and the crowd were into what I was doing – a nice improvement from some… Continue reading Station 4 Last Night

Last night’s show at The Terminal Bar in Nordeast Minneapolis was grrrreat! We were a bit rusty, playing our first show as a band in 3 months, but the rustyness equated to pure energy and musicianship onstage. Many times I felt like my guitar chops weren’t up to snuff, but John’s drumming and Ryan’s bass… Continue reading Terminal Bar Rocked!!
Last Saturday was Colin’s birthday, and I rocked it with the likes of “Sneaky” Pete Bauer, Colin “The Czar” Anderson, Bob “The Bearded Wonder” Serrano, Tubs, “Rock-and-Roll Legend” John Stoll, and more! Here are some photos:
Check out the photos below from my final show of the tour – at the BP Green Gas Station in L.A. Playing for a small crowd and hundreds of gas tank filler-uppers was lots of fun. The crowd, in particular, was quite receptive, but it was also fun to have people in cars pull up… Continue reading BP Green Gas Station Gig and LETRON

Thanks to everyone who came out to support us at the AIDS benefit last night at Kieran’s!! It truly was an amazing experience for us! We battled through dying microphones and a bouncy stage that almost spelled death for our drummer, John (a falling cymbal nearly decapitated him). In the end, we played only about… Continue reading Oh My!!
