This show has been a long time
coming. We filled Yoshi's in 2009,
2010, and 2011. In 2012 I was going to
focus on our next record. Instead I've
spent every day since June 19, 2012 working
on my recovery. This show is a very
big deal to me. Getting back onstage
at Yoshi's, leading my band, has been the
goal I've set my eyes on since the

played everything from Merle Haggard to "Misirlou" to
Monk to Iggy Pop with
Bird & Beckett is a wonderful store. If I lived nearby I think I'd spend all my free time here. It's also a short walk from the Glen Park BART station.

Chronicle's culture blog about the local

seamlessly moves from rockabilly to jazz
to twang and back again, sometimes in
the same song." Read

Can't make our May 26 Yoshi's show? Come to this! Better yet, come to both!
will be a shakedown gig prior to our Yoshi's
show.Armando's is a great room. It's
intimate, friendly, unpretentious, great
acoustics, and cheap for the audience.
All the musicians I know love Armando's - the
place really has the right spirit. Roy
Jeans and Eloise Cotton, who operate
Armando's, love music. That may sounds
obvious or corny, but many places that book
music do not value it.
