Show time!

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.



Short film playing @ Frameline35

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.”

Stasis is a palindrome

Just to be silly, I mixed a version of the song where it plays forward & backward at the same time. It might even sound a little bit cooler than the original. =)

CD Release show on October 9 at Cafe Du Nord!

So, my new CD “Flux” is finally ready! My band and I will be performing at the wonderful Cafe Du Nord on October 9th w/ Essence, Pills & Jackets, and Forget About Boston!

I’m really looking forward to the show. I know my set will rock, I’m playing with some great bands (Pills & Jackets in particular), and Cafe Du Nord is pretty much the coolest place in the bay. Woot!

Getting my CD mastered!

I’m flying out to Carrboro, NC tomorrow morning to get my CD mastered. And how!  I’ve been working with Brent Lambert at The Kitchen to hone my mixes and make them as ready as possible for mastering, and I’m super happy with the results; he and his staff have been surprisingly helpful.

Naturally, this means a couple things:
- CD will be out soon
- I’ll be able to post new tracks before too long
- I get to eat some amazing Southern food.  (Fried-chicken biscuits, anyone?!?!)

Hardest part of the trip = getting to the BART at 6 to make my flight.



Done recording the album! And playing a show in Alameda on Friday.

I’m done with all the recording / editing / mixing / producing / cud-chewing / etc.  The album is finished!  And by finished, I mean it still needs to get mastered (by my amazingly talented ME, just you watch, he’s sick!) and I still need to put the last touches on the artwork, but it’s D-U-N.  Werd.  It’ll be out soon.

And in the meanwhile, I’ll be playing a show this Friday, May 8, 8pm at the Rooster’s Roadhouse in Alameda, 1700 Clement Ave, at Grand… with my good friend and amazing musician Steve Laciak.  He’s one of my favorite people, musically and non-musically alike.  Join us for tunes and drinks (do they serve drinks?  they do?  oh good!) as we rock it out for you.



Try, try, try, try, try, try, try, (try?)

Sometimes you’ve gotta record a song seven or eight times before you really nail it.  Done, and, done.



Show this Friday at Blake’s, with samples from the new CD!

So I’m supposedly “not playing shows” while I’m making my album… but that doesn’t always work.  I’m playing one at Blake’s this Friday.

I’ll be playing some songs on the loop-station, some with my good friend Joe Hickey, and some straight-up acoustic.

I’ll be giving out free sampler CD’s of the upcoming album, only at gigs.  So if you want to hear what I’ve been doing, get your butt in gear and get out to the show!
