Greetings and happy Spring! (Almost.) Hope this missive finds you
well and in hot pursuit of that which you most passionately desire!
to share a few things with all of you. It’s been a while since I’ve
written a newsletter; I would say that this is because I’ve been very busy,
which is true, but also because I’ve been lazy and not at all as good as I
should be at keeping up with friends.
But mostly because I’ve
been busy (lazy). It’s an issue.
The big news thus far for 2013
is that I’ve been invited to play in the All-AZ Showcase during South By Southwest
in Austin, TX this year. SXSW, if you aren’t aware is pretty much the biggest
annual new-music showcase that goes down in these parts (planet Earth). If you are
near Austin this coming week, it would be lovely to have your support for this event!
It goes down this coming Friday, March 15th, at the Hickory Street venue on Congress,
from 1:30pm-6pm. Here's the link to the event:
And get there early, ‘cause I’m opening the show! I say this
out of genuine self-interest, but also because Four Peaks brewery is offering FREE
AZ beer, til it runs out. Which will probably be during my set. Also free swag-bags
filled with I-don’t-know-what will be tossed about, so don’t miss out
on those, either.
As I make my way back to AZ, I’ll also be playing
a few shows in the Santa Fe, NM area with good friends Todd And The Fox. If you
are in New Mexico, you probably already know T&TF, but if you don’t, you
owe it to yourself to check them out. We’ll be sharing more shows in the future
as well, both in NM and AZ (and beyond) so look for those events coming up!
In other news, a new CD is in the works and will be coming out this summer,
if my deal with that Congolese witch-doctor is worth the poisonwood-bark scroll
it’s scribbled on. I’ve been trying to over-think this for years,
and now I’m done. Just get it done, PK. There’s way too much material
piling up for me to get all persnickety about how it gets recorded. So, I’ve
been doing some preliminary recordings in my very own living room, of my very own
single-wide mobile home (it’s Shabby Chic) - and I’ll be damned
if I’m not pretty darn pleased with the results. Thank you, witch doctor!
I’ll end there, before things get out of control. Hope to see you
all out there!
