October 1st, 8th and 15th will be the dates of my Tuesday night residency in NYC at the 11th Street Bar on East 11th Street between Avenues A and B. Music starts at 9pm and I will start at 10pm with different guests each night. There will be a final and fourth performance on Wednesday the 16th. These shows are free. This message is brought to you by carrier pigeon. Grease the wheels. ALT
If you’ve never heard my music before and would like to at no cost to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know which 3 songs of mine you’d like to have and I will send them to you for free. It’s not always easy to take a chance on something new these days but as someone wise once said, “If it’s free, it’s for me.”
Hello friends…greetings from Sunny Tennessee…Chattanooga, that is. I’m out here playing guitar and singing with my friend Jonny Burke. We’re opening for one of America’s great songwriters, James McMurtry and having a great time. What might happen tonight? Maybe we play the show…maybe we just go up there and dream…nobody really knows until we strike the first note.
I’m playing with Anton Fier and Chris Morrissey at Rockwood Stage 2 on May 7th. You can get tickets by clicking here. They are $10 and the great Mia Dyson is opening for us…the show will start at 7pm so come on down.
Gonna be a busy summer for me, with lot’s of traveling…can’t wait to see you again. Got some shows in Texas, California and more coming up…in the mean time, check out the album art for my new record, above. Love, ALT
Last fall, I filmed a couple of songs for Take Part TV’s new series Eye Level. The folks at Take Part then generously made a contribution to my favorite charity, Play For Change Foundation, which helps to build arts and music schools in countries where they are too poverty stricken to build them on their own…these schools give all kinds of kids throughout the world the opportunity to explore their creativity and learn more about their own artistic endeavors. Here are two of the videos we filmed with more to come on April 17th. Please visit www.playingforchange.org for information on how you can help.
The reviews for The Thinking Man’s Filth continue to pour in and they’ve been really great.
The Aquarian says, “Consisting of six gritty little diamonds, this homemade dish is one best served over and over again…Aurally tight, the use of dynamics to the most extreme manner is both maddening and appreciated.” Read the full review by clicking here.
Dingus on music (best blog name ever) says, “The force of nature recorded here is comparable to Jeff Tweedy, Ryan Adams and other alt-folk legends but with this solo endeavor Tasjan proves he doesn’t need a Wilco or any Cardinals. The chunky, distorted, stringy guitar throughout the album mixed with ageless, soul-wrenched vocals leaves almost no room for a rock band.” Read the full review by clicking here.
I’d also like to note that, due to circumstances beyond my control, I won’t be doing most of the dates in April with Sylvain Sylvain. However, I’ll still be appearing with him on April 1st at The City Winery and we will begin recording an album with Tommy Price and Kenny Aaronson on tomorrow night. Hope to see you on tour down South with Jonny Burke this May. Rock on, rock on. ALT
I’m going on tour with Sylvain Sylvain next week and we’ll be on the road with Glen Matlock of the Sex Pistols. You can check the shows page for all the dates. I’ll also be playing NYC again soon…Rockwood Stage 2 with Anton Fier on drums and Chris Morrissey on bass. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by clicking here.
In the mean time, you can enjoy this video from SXSW 2013:
See you on the merry highway…ALT
