I am extremely excited about this show, for a few reasons. First, it’s the first time we’ve played in a while. Second, the whole band will be around (unless Mike decides to travel overseas at the last minute). Third, Radio is a brand new venue in beautiful Union Square that is literally right beside my house. And I mean literally literally. I’m also thrilled to finally be on a bill with my beloved St. Helena, and so excited to hear Slow Runner for the first time, and The Grown Up Noise for the fourth time (I think). And check out that gorgeous poster made by Tyler from Thick as Thieves! Could my Saturday look any better?
21+, $5. Venue is currently cash only, so plan ahead! 379-381 Somerville Ave, Somerville, MA 02143
I love a good snowstorm, but this winter has broken me. I know the warmer air hanging over Boston today is just a tease, and that our bones will be frozen again before spring actually shows up sometime in mid-April. Luckily, we have this event to look forward to: the Winter Rock Formal, in which a bunch of Boston musicians recreate a high school dance the way it should have been—at a bar. Come erase your memories of a more awkward you as we dance the night away. Creative (or painfully uncreative yet lovely) formal dress and good music have the power to warm us all, if only for one night.
See you there!

The aforementioned Positronic Rays will reunite to be part of a pretty awesome lineup at the Rosebud in Davis Square on Friday, December 3rd. I’m not sure how much the show costs, but I am guessing some amount between $5 and $10.
I will be playing with a full rhythm section for the first time EVER, which is pretty exciting.

The amazing blog Boston Band Crush (up for a Boston Music Award this year) gave the show a much more thorough plug than I did, and you can check that out here.
