I’m getting ready to leave San Francisco. I had breakfast super early with John of Half-Handed Cloud fame and it was a lot of fun. His releases have been on Asthmatic Kitty/Sounds Familyre and the Canadian IN Transit label. Last night, I met with Adam, the manager of The Trouble with Sweeney, before the Giants game. I tried to convince him to go and almost had him, but there was some fancy dealing of tickets that took place and he went home. I fully embraced the Padres domination of the Giants with an 11-0 shutout. Oooh yeah. Dodgers are still going strong.
Big news, Kind of Like Spitting are finally doing the final mixes for their one-sided LP. Yeah, it’s on.
Back to LA in a couple of hours…

Later today, I am adding Pedro the Lion : Control to the on-line store with special packages to get the release at a discounted price with the purchase of specific btv titles. So, check on that. The album is officially released tomorrow and orders will ship out soon after.
This weekend was extremely busy, catching the Phillies home opener after fighting the crazy traffic jams around that stadium due to lack of parking lots and my stupidity to actually drive to the stadium instead of taking the subway. C’est la vie. Later that night, got to see Douglas Witmer’s incredible art opening. If you are in Philadelphia, be sure to stop by the Peng gallery and check out his work. Saturday was a marathon of rock and roll shows. We jetted to NJ to see Half-Handed Cloud, Singing Mechanic, Soul-Junk, and Danielson Famile. Some amazing lo-fi pop/rock brilliance. We left right before the Famile to catch Hayden at the Fire in Philadelphia. Hayden delivered the goods, an extremely long 1h 45m set of new songs and all of the old favorites. Definitely worth the effort to go.
Denison is back in Philadelphia finishing the extra parts for his Philadelphia Songs album. The Six Parts Seven arrive from Kent on Friday to add their instrumental genius and expertise to the record. Final mixes will begin starting next week.
