FEBRUARY 2013 NEWSDUMPSTER
The Blue Meanie's Air Conditioner is
Running at Max, so that We Can Share Some of Your Cold.
Our northeastern friends have been complaining
bitterly about the low temperatures, snow, ice, freezing wind and other northeasterners
complaining bitterly. Being northeasterners ourselves, we totally feel your
chill; however, since the first leg of our 2013 Further West Tour hopped down
to southern Florida, we also feel warm, pampered, relaxed and embarrassingly smug.
Part 1 of our first photo album is
online, as theatened, for your viewing and snarky commenting pleasure.
While visiting our photos, you'll thrill to photos of two other folk-couple
friends with whom we hooked up in Florida. First, at the Collier-Seminole State Park, we hooked up with the great
Jeni & Billy.
After discussing the importance of mariachi horns on songs such as "Ring of Fire" and "I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight," Billy
took it upon himself to create a version of "Hungrytown Road," with said
horns predominating. We were so delighted with the results that "Carretera
Hungrytown" is now our official ringtone. If you want it, too,
you can download it for free here until Billy
catches up with us.
Next, at the Jonathan Dickinson State Park, who, but Pia and Joni,
a.k.a. the great Vellamo, on tour from
Finland, should grace our campground? They're hawking their spankin'-new,
marvelous debut CD, recorded at our own, humble, Song Catcher Recording, and co-produced
by our dear houseboy, Ken. We will also share the stage with Vellamo on two
occassions this month. Though their new album is not yet available at your
local Tower, you can still hear selections on Soundcloud.
