Okay hey so here we are in April. Not at all happy about my obligations as far as taxes which have nearly tripled from last year. Yes tripled. Thanks GOP Tax cut. Bunch of crooks. Tell you what.
So yeah coulda published an update on the first but then you all would have thought it was a joke. Right you're saying and that would be different from any other day how?Ha! Always the kidder ain't ya? Mr. Funnyguy. Yeah funny this!
Ah okay so dig it. I'm thinking like it's looking like my entry for the Music From The Moon songwriting competition sponsored by the good folks from Listen Local Hunstville, is in the running.
The contest is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Mission. If I get enough likes well then I go on to the second round. If I win I get to perform my song live at the big shindig in July plus 10Gs and a whole mess of other cool prizes.
So please folks take a minute and watch, LIKE and subscribe! You don't like. I don't win. Simple as that. So please, please, please.
Uh huh in March I had some fine opportunities to lay it down live as hell for many of you fine folks. It was all fun but the 2 most bestest was a pair of shows sprung on me after the March 10 Sunday Songwriters Series at Muddy Creek Music Hall.
It was after the event that Bill from Muddy Creek took me aside said he had a few things he was keen to talk to me about. One of them things was an invitation to open 2 sold out standing room only shows for Chris Rodrigues and Abby The Spoon Lady. As you might figure I said - Hell Yeah!
Them two are amazing and such a good time. There's some live video from one of my performances on the way. And hey rumor has it that we may be reprising that bill for the Muddy Creek Sparta Music Hall Grand Opening in June. Keep yer eyes peeled for all that. Yessir!
Still banging away on ideas for that Sunnyland - Rock Banjo Opera thang, Shared Charmed, I'm Sure with you all last month. Added the front end of another number for you all to check out. Working title 'Too Small'. Created a playlist to share my ideas as they develop. Hoping someone might dig being a party to the process.
Oh and hey thought like I'd share a few pics turning you all onto what I do for ClydeFEST. ClydeFEST is a local children festival I help produce in conjunction with my CAC Arts Council here in Chatham County, NC. It honors my good bud and former neighbor, outsider folk artist Clyde Jones whose motto is, "It's all about the kids". I designed the ClydeFEST logo and sign and also manage and maintain all the games that we made for the festival. It's a good time for the kids. Totally unplugged and down home.
Oh and before I close little sad news outta NYC in that Sidewalk Cafe the longstanding home of Antifolk has been bought up and yeah so a highly influentially scene and venue just as happened with the 12 Bar on Denmark Street in London, has been just gobbled up and spit out. Couple pics in the side bar. One of a young Breadfoot - hardly a baby, right? - and one of the Sidewalk's Men's room near about the last day. See if ya can't find the Breadfoot sticker.
Hmpf, okay uh, think that's it. Working on more shows. Wanna make a little south eastern run early June. GlendonFEST in May which is always a hoot. So stayed tuned and oh right, right, right hey opened up a little store here on the site. Have a look see. Got my CDs for sale and some cool as hell t-shirts featuring an original design I did. Get ya one. It'll make ya cool as hell! Click here to go check it out.
