The last post I wrote on here was about my dear friend Jonathan Nocera. Last time I saw JP, he was, as always, incredibly encouraging about my writing, my own projects. It’s with his spirit guiding me that I finally dove back into such things. And I’m excited to have some upcoming places to show what i’m working on!
I’ve been pretty excited by all the energy around Occupy Everywhere, and involving myself in ways that i can. And there’s already some exciting art coming out of the movement. My buddy, Rachel Schragis made this incredible Flow Chart of The Occupation of NYC that’s received some amazing press. Also, fabulous artist, Cristy C. Road has made some dope prints. Both artists and more will be featured in an exhibit at Bluestockings Bookstore and i’m honored to be playing a few songs solo at the opening night.

I’ve gathered up a dynamic duo of Zach Dunham on drums and Charlie Rauh on guitar to grow some of my new songs and re-envision a couple of old originals. We’re playing the day after Thanksgiving at Sycamore– a cozy spot in my neighborhood, and the perfect place to bring new sounds out of hiding to (hopefully) full-bellied, open-eared YOU!
