Bellevue, WA: Crossroads

Any calendar year really wouldn't be complete without a stop here--got to it early in 2013.

San Francisco, CA: Bazaar Cafe

January's a great time to duck south for a long weekend, and if that weekend happens to include a nice little coffeeshop gig with David Maloney, well, that's even better!

Seattle, WA: Fremont Abbey (Bushwick Book Club - A People's History of the United States)

The Bushwick Book Club Seattle does Zinn, part deux (part une here).  This time I've drawn Chapter 25, an eight-page addendum beginning with the 2000 election, running through 9/11 up to the initial bombing of Afghanistan.  Heavy stuff, and tough build a show-closer from it, too!

Good thing we really closed with Neil Diamond's "America."

Seattle, WA: Jet City Stream

What's this now?--a new, on-line radio station focusing on local artists?  And broadcasting from the old Rainier Brewery?!  How lovely--thanks, Jet City Stream!  Happy to come in with Bushwick Book Club curator Geoff Larson and Left Hand Smoke's Ben Mish to talk about upcoming shows,  etc.  (And congrats to LHS for placing a song on Grey's Anatomy tonight!)

Seattle, WA: Musicquarium Lounge at The Triple Door

I wonder what the scene would have been like had the Seahawks won...  As it played out, most of town's been out-of-commission since early afternoon--but not the WW Band!  Hitting 2013 hard!

Seattle, WA: Annex Theatre

Emmett Montgomery is an inventive local comedian who hosts myriad area events, including the Book Club's 1984 show last September, and he carefully curates his Weird and Awesome shows to be just that.  Glad to be considered one or the other...!
