(photo by Bob McAdam) Many thanks to all who made it out to the NYC shindig at rockwood music hall on Monday night. It was a thrill to play for such an attentive audience and nice to have a full house for my first show of 2013! Many thanks go out to Anton Fier, Chris Morrissey, JP Olsen and Jon Chinn as well.
Next Tuesday night I’m playing Strummerville at Bowery Electric. It’s an evening of music dedicated to the life of Joe Strummer. An excellent lineup and house band…Come out and support a great cause.
Lastly, but not least of all, The Madison Square Gardeners are recording a new EP in early February. Five brand new songs with the original band lineup and producer Adam Lasus (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Army Navy) on board. Very exciting. Thanks for all your love and support. See you on the road in February with the great Freedy Johnston.
I’ll be spending my New Years Eve at Bowery Electric playing guitar with one of my guitar heroes and a true American treasure, the great Sylvain Sylvain. Aside from his imperative contributions to those Rock’n’Roll heathens, The New York Dolls, Syl has made some really tremendous solo records and shines brightly as a songwriter in his own write, as Dr. Winston would have said. It’s going to be a wonderful evening, the great Kenny Aaronson on bass and the wonderful Thommy Price on drums. Signing off with paper, pencil and glue…
Got a couple new dates up on the shows page…back this Monday September 24th by popular demand, we’ll be doing another Shayni Rae’s Truckstop at The Bedford in Williamsburg in Brooklyn…me, Kevn Kinney and Findlay Brown…same 3 guys, same 3 chords. During the month of October I’ll be out Californy way to play with Alberta Cross and to produce a new EP for Adam Levy. In the mean time, I’m finishing up work on my latest EP, The Thinking Man’s Filth. It’s just me and a guitar and a fuzz pedal. It’ll be out soon and will be available in all digital retailers as well as at http://www.altobviously.bandcamp.com.
