Seattle, WA: Columbia City Theater

This is a bit of a full-circle gig for me: a trio version of the band is supporting Rare Elephant in their record release event, and one of the members happens to be my first guitar teacher (and Weddell-ecaster mentor), Tom Armstrong.  I've come a long way since my tenth-grade chops.  But I have a long way to go before I own anything as cool as the massive, converted-wooden-desk all-in-one keyboard contraption RE drags around...

Thanks, Tom, for the patience and guidance.

Oysterville, WA: House Concert

It's been five years since I've played this marvelous series, and I've missed this audience--so engaged, literate, and appreciative!  Given all the literary connections, I structure the afternoon so that the second set will consist entirely of Bushwick Book Club songs, with attendees allowed to vote for fifteen particular books.  Top vote getters: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland; Slaughterhouse-Five; and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  Lowest totals: 1984; The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; and The Holy Bible--judging from those last two, I know where folk weren't this morning...

Seattle, WA: Central Library (Bushwick Book Club - The Wonderful Wizard of Oz)

Most Bushwick shows are one-and-done affairs when it comes to the material (and lineup), so to do a third Oz show (of four!) is uncharted territory.  Fun to see what changes and evolves...and what regresses...
