i’m excited to be playing a sweet record store day party for my pal jim’s shop astro black. it’s a daytime hangout. i’ll be either playing in astro black/fat rabbit or next door at kaiju. while record store day has been a bummer for independent labels, the spirit of celebrating a record store is still something i can appreciate. further, i’m optimistic that the city state tapes ‘plod & play, vol. 1’ release will be in hand for the show too.
the facebook page for the event is here. kin ship goods made the sweet flier below too.
i’ll also be opening for sam prekop on his tour stop in louisville in mid-may. more details for that and maybe other releases soon. beep!
there are lots of things slowing down the physical release on city state tapes of “plod & play, vol. 1”, but the bandcamp download is available now. free download codes to the first batch of folks who show up at dreamland tonight. beep!
i’m playing a show on saturday the 21st of february at dreamland here in louisville to celebrate the release of city state tapes vol. 1. this is a batch of cassettes that all 5 of us will hopefully have out in time for the show. the facebook event can be found here. i put up a tune from the cassette that you can listen to below.
here are links for more info on city state tapes:
tim furnish and tim barnes took some neat pics that i wanted to share from the dreamland show with eli keszler and rashad becker. in other news, city state tapes, a louisville tape label started by nick sturtzel and chris cprek, will be issuing a cassette of mine in early 2015 called “plod and play, vol. 1.” it’s a collection of some largely improvised tone poems that i recorded mostly in the early 00s. hopefully another tape will follow with similar tunes.
