Ugh. Is it November yet?
No seriously, is it?
Funny thing, when I moved here to North Carolina something in the back of my head somewhere was thinking this state has the word north in it's name, it won't be that hot.
Aiy mama. So hey let's just work through it. first things first. A re-cap of July. Yup. Some cool shit went down in July. One of the highlights being Hot & Blue 2. Amazing musical guests, a dozen plus entries in the wing cook-off and the launch of Cackalacky's New Hotter Sauce paired with our fundraiser for our local CORA Food Pantry, who we raised over $500 dollars for through a raffle, other donations and the sale of a Special Cackalacky Infused Blody Mary!
Two other cool things that went down in July was a Pre-Glendonfest throw down at my local The City Tap featuring my buds Erin Johns and Frick & Sheets. And then well Glendonfest itself was amazing! Always a super good time. More wonderful friends and music and food. Camping in the meadow and this year I made a special high summer elderflower cocktail and served em up for donations. Made $160 bucks to benefit the fest and quenched some thirsts along the way.
Uhm let's see August shows are kinda skimpy. Just one in the pipeline at the Kraken in Chapel Hill. Should be a real fine time indeed. Gonna be sharing the bill with my buds The River Otters and another one man band, Joe's Cousin.
Rest of August I'm be focused on sharing a new crowd funding campaign. Hoping to Kickstart the hell outta this new project, Seven $ Suit and Other Stories. It's gonna marry up a new studio recording with a hand drawn coloring / activity book.
Got all the musical ideas sketched out and am now working on some roughs for the book itself. Couple images in the sidebar there plus videos for Seven $ Suit and Lady Rocket Head and sketches and demos for even more of the songs I'm wanting to record for the project.
The Coloring book idea is kind of a twist on liner notes. Growing up with vinyl it was a whole different experience being able to hold that record and look at the artwork or read the liner notes printed on the sleeve or groove on the poster or sticker or other cool stuff included. Hoping to bring that experience back to folks in some small way.
Keen to launch the campaign in September so stay tuned for that cause I'm gonna need your help getting it done.
Guess that's bout it for now,
Cheers you all!
