You Should Stop will be playing in SF at Another Hole in the Head on Sunday, December 15th. I’m super excited that the film gets a festival run here in the Bay, and doubly excited that it’s poised to sell out a month and a half before it even goes up! =D The film was scored by me, and even includes one song by The Hangover Brigade.

This weekend, one of my collaborations with Post:Ballet will be showing at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The show, “Four Plays”, will be performed Thurs-Fri, July 18 & 19. I’m delighted and honored to get to be part of Post:Ballet’s fourth home season, and especially to get my music played at YBCA’s swanky Lam Research Theater, which I didn’t think would happen until I turned at least 40 or so. We even got a preview piece in the Huffington Post! (That’s another awesome point in the interblogtoobworld.)
Now that my work with the ballet is in its final push, I get to turn my attention to the score of Big Driver, which is currently in post-production, on its way to the silver screen.
Work with The Hangover Brigade is proceeding swimmingly, as well. We’ve got a handful of shows coming up at Club 23 in Brisbane, as well as Milk Bar and the Monarch in SF. We’ve also recently posted videos of a couple new songs, and there are more on our YouTube page:
No Diggity (omg yes)
Hope your summer is going well! Mine sure is! =D
This is going to be a long post, so bullet points are my new best friend.
- I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be scoring an adaptation of Stephen King’s story Big Driver this summer! I’d love it if you went and watched the pitch and trailer over on the FB page, or at BigDriverMovie.com today. In the blink of an eye, we’ve already raised over $5k, and we would love any support you could offer for a very exciting and ambitious summer project.
- One of my previous films, You Should Stop, recently screened in SF. I’m very proud of that film, and it was a delight to finally get to see it on the silver screen.
- We’re playing a show Friday, April 19th at The Hotel Utah, where we’ll be debuting a couple new songs & covers.
- Tawnee & I recently recorded a duo-version of our new sexy song, “Any Way I Can Get It”, which you can stream & download for free right here:
- And here’s a video of the whole band doing the same song at Cafe Du Nord last year:
- We’ve also started posting cover songs to our Youtube page…
“Call it Off” by Tegan & Sara
“I’ve Got This Friend” by The Civil Wars
- Tawnee also got some TV time to talk about the band:
- And finally, here’s a little love song I wrote & recorded last fall:
Post:Ballet has commissioned me to score their new work this season, titled “When in Doubt”. It premieres this weekend, July 20-21, at the Herbst Theatre.
The SF Chronicle has generously done an interview and write-up of our piece in advance of its world premiere, and the California Literary Review also has a nice interview with Choreographer Robert Dekkers.
Here’s a sneak peek of the score for you:
And here’s a sample of past work we’ve done together:
I’m playing with Tawnee Kendall & The Hangover Brigade this Saturday at Martuni’s starting at 5pm.
Second, we’ll be on Radio Valencia (87.9 FM) this Thursday, May 24, 8 PM on Baghdad by the Bay.
Most excitingly, we’ll be releasing our EP In Between Spaces at Cafe Du Nord on Saturday, May 26! We’ll be playing with Cassandra Farrar & The Left Brains, Dad’s LP’s, and Blisses B. (The day after Alma Desnuda, to boot!)
I’ll be playing with Steve Laciak & Friends at the Fireside Lounge in Alameda on Saturday, February 11th. Expect some combination of guitar, glockenspiel, and hip-hop. Oh yeah.
A couple days later, I’ll be playing with Tawnee Kendall and the Hangover Brigade at the Red Devil Lounge, Tuesday, February 14th. That’s right, Valentine’s Day. Our band is the featured artist at their open mic, and I’ll sneak in a couple solo songs while I’m there, too. Come get your heart on with us.
The first short film I scored, Ours is playing this Thursday, 12/01/11, at the Roxie Theater in SF @ 7pm, as part of Still Around. A number of the other filmmakers will also be there, if you’d like to join us!! Since the last time it played here in SF, it has screened in Prague, Czech Republic; Seattle; Milwaukee; and Bern, Switzerland. It’s playing tonight in Hamburg, and has upcoming screenings in South Africa, LA, Chicago, and many other places.
The more recent film, Bug Chaser, recently screened at the Dark Carnival Film Festival in Bloomington, IN, and I’m excited for more (and local) dates to start being announced.
I also recently recorded an album playing lead guitar on the amazing Tawnee Kendall‘s upcoming debut album. We’ll be playing our first show together at the Rockit Room on Saturday, Dec 17th, at 8pm as The Hangover Brigade. Come see us, and hear how awesomely we rock.
A sneak peek of my new collaboration with Post:Ballet will be showing this Friday at the 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, 5-9pm. I’ve crafted a really neat soundscape for this piece, and am excited to debut it – see you there!
Can’t wait to see you there!
Last year, I scored a short film for the HIV Story Project’s film “Still Around”, and I just found out it’ll be having its West Coast Premiere at Frameline35 in June! I’ll be there with the cast & crew to celebrate its release, please join me!

A recent review of its World Premiere in Boston described it, saying “The best films in this outstanding anthology give us … [t]he drama, dangers, and enrichment of finding out who you are–and laying claim to it–without letting labels get in the way.”
