This Saturday at 20/20 cycles I’m honored to share the bill with the wonderful Lori Goldston and one of my musical heros: Michael Hurley. If you haven’t heard Michael’s music yet do so as soon as possible, I’d suggest “Hi Fi Snock Uptown” and “Blue Mountain” for starters. I’ll be playing for my friend Drew, Shmootzi the Clod, who was endlessly inspiring and so encouraging to me when I nervously first started playing solo in this town. I can’t be the performer that he was but I can do my best to try and channel the love he gave to everyone around.
The Northwest Folklife Festival is this weekend! This is the greatest festival of any kind that this beautiful, wet city has to offer because it’s always free and open to everyone. And thanks in part to the booking prowess of Kelli Faryar there are always lots excellent bands. Here’s the schedule. There’s a lot of information on there and I haven’t read through it all but make sure to check out: the K Records showcases - Friday from 7-11pm at the Indie Roots Stage (we’re on at 10), and Saturday starting at 1:30pm at the Center House Theatre. Also Lonesome Shack (Saturday 2:25pm), Heatwarmer (Sunday 9:25pm), and Shana Cleveland and the Sandcastles (Monday 3:35pm) at the Indie Roots Stage.
Chain & The Gang, live at The Smell in LA (April 2012). Rock’n’roll!
