Spring has been a whirlwind of getting ready! My work with a local catering business is picking up, myself and some friends are starting up a gourmet potato chip company to work at music festivals (The Hippy Chippy) and still recording and writing in all the free time. BUT Next week, I leave for a few weeks driving around the big ol country with the great Eternal Summers! This will be their 3rd US tour and 2nd time for me. We will be hitting shows all over the US check HERE for a list of shows. On the West Coast we will join the fabulous President Of The United States Of America. That’s right, the peaches dudes!

Just got back to Virginia from The SXSW festival in Austin, TX. I have so much to catch up on and to clean up. I have photos of the trip to put up but that will have to wait until the weekend. The past 2 Shelf house shows went great and I have photos of that as well. SO MANY PHOTOS!! I filled in on drums for SURFING! out of Harrisonburg for the Coffee Pot show then for SXSW. Had wonderful time and can’t wait to make it back out west.
Here in Virginia I am as busy as ever, with a show this Thursday at Fork in the Market and Next Friday at the Water Heater with Woolens and Virginia Woolf.
This past weekend Missionaries went out on a 4 day weekend tour here out the photos I snapped along the way also got some video on my old mini VHS camcorder. It was a lot of fun and all the shows were great. We just finished a small EP of demos for a full length album “Partner”. You can check out the 4 tracks here… “DEMO EP” We did all the recording in our practice space I did all the engineering and production along with a little help from all the Missionaries. Enjoy!
