Just wanted to remind
you all about Saturday night's show. I asked Sa
Lar to open up the evening. If you like Leonard
Cohen and Cat Stevens with an Indian-influenced style
of playing guitar and singing, then I suggest you come early. He's a local favorite
of mine. His live performances can put you in a trance.
UNCOMMON GROUND on Clark St.
(3800 N. Clark St, Chicago; 773-929-3680)
They've got good food and a good beer selection.
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2nd
Sa Lar is on at 10pm, and I will
go on around 10:30pm
And some news: I'm ranked
#2 on the Chicago local charts for indierock on Reverbnation.
Ranking is done by listeners (duh) and you've all helped me get there... thank you!
Another interesting find: I was updating my music/artist website in which I
was adding videos and needed youtube links. I recently found this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=h3mYUYw_l_U. Someone
from Bulgaria very recently made this video and posted it for a song
I wrote in 2006.
And a man from the UK recently bought all of my recordings
after hearing a song put out on an EP from 2005 which was never officially released
anywhere but my website and bandcamp. It's not on itunes, emusic, pandora, spotify
and the like... He bought the EP and the other 3 LPs were soon to follow (thank
you, Richard). I plan on singing that song on Saturday (haven't played it in at
least 7 years).
Good things are happening lately. Thanks, Chicago...
I think it has something to do with you! I still love and miss you, New York.
Hope to see you -- yes, you...
real people, in the flesh (with clothes on, of course) -- on Saturday!
officially (at least until you visit me in person at my next show):
