here's a great dumb video and voting reminder and and and...
**BIGGEST REMINDER: WE ARE WEBCAS-THING THE RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL BOWIE-WARM UP SHOW on tuesday MARCH 29th! it'll start around 7:30/7:45 NYC time, more exact info coming, and i'll post to the patreon & social mediae when we go live...mark your calendars, there will be blood! and strings! and guests! and bowie! we're trying to make this an even better webcast than usual - PLAN TO RUN A BATH A POP A BOTTLE OF WINE AND GATHER ON COUCHES AND TUNE IN!**
today is a crazy catch-up day after the two shows at meow wolf in santa fe (they were fantastic...and you can see footage, voila! but you're going to have to hear me and jason sing about politics. :)
to all the patrons who came out to the show(s)...THANK YOU, and thank you for coming up afterwards and making yourself known. i've barely toured since starting the patreon and it's making me very excited to get back on the road now that we have this secret/not-so-secret society.
for you who weren't there (pretty much most of you)...you can see that the space was BEAUTIFUL. jason and i put together some crazy sets and we wrote a new song together that was actually quite touching called "the house of eternal return", complete with audience sing-a-long. it needs a little work, but we'll hopefully record it before time slips away. AND i played my first-ever solo piano rendition of "machete". it needs some figuring out without the drums and strings...songs like that take time to evolve into their final selves.
ahem again....in my best joe strummer voice: this is a public AFP service announcement, WITH ACCORDION!! people: *THE WEST HAS NOT SPOKEN!* if you're a patron in IDAHO! ARIZONA! UTAH!:
TOMORROW IS YOUR DAY! awesomeness: in idaho and utah you DO NOT HAVE TO BE REGISTERED TO GET IN ON THIS...you can just rock up, register at vote in the primary at the same time. GO! get involved! save our planet from donald trump! to motivate you, Jason Webley and i just put together this version of Talking Heads (official)'s's "burning down the house" to be about....y'know. the people of santa fe sang along.
here is EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW (care of jason, our political correspondent)
