Congratulations to Al and Amy who are engaged to be married later in the fall. We celebrated after catching Damien Jurado play an intimate set in Philadelphia’s Unitarian church chapel. The spot holds somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 people. The first show sold out and a second was added and actually had more people than the first. It’s quite a special event to see a quiet singer/songwriter and actually be able to hear the songs without folks talking loudly over their beers in the middle of the set. Laura Gibson opened and it was an impressive set. Was quite a fan of the singing saw, especially. Damien played solo for a rather long set. Always great to see him play.
Unwed Sailor wrapped up their spring tour last night in Tulsa after about 4 weeks of touring. Many thanks to all who came out to see them. Johnathon has started a new band with Bryce from Ester Drang and some other Tulsa friends called Native Lights. Their debut show (at least I think their debut) is on 23 May in Tulsa.
I’m wrapping up plans for the mewithoutyou vinyl release of It’s All Crazy! It’s All False! It’s All A Dream! It’s Alright! It’s just a long enough record that we’re going to need to do a double LP. It will come in a thick gatefold jacket. Possibly an etching on the 4th side, but more details later in the week. Thanks to everyone who has been pre-ordering. We’re trying our best to have the vinyl ready to ship near the cd release date.
