Breaky for Mikey

I know this isn’t the first I’m-a-bad-blogger-bad-bad-bad post, but let me reiterate; I’m gonna be absent ’til the tour starts. I’m off to Portland and Seattle to see friends and play that Dave Eggers benefit, and I’ll talk to you next week.

Bob Moog Passes Away: Age 71.

I’ve spent the past week obsessing over my Moog pedals, and my new Moog Voyager (ironically just bought a couple of weeks ago); what beautiful sounds. It also must be said that the Moog people, down in Asheville, N.C., are just about the nicest people at an instrument company I’ve ever dealt with.

I Will Not Blog About My Breakfast.

Yeah, yeah, I know: bad blogger, bad bad bad. I’ve been remiss in posting. Thing is: there’s nothing to report. I’ve been eating and sleeping. More will happen when I’m in Seattle for the 826 thing, in September when the tour commences (which I’m getting really excited about–we’re on a bus! Like a real live actual rock and roll entity!).

This Is Not a Rebel Song! This Song Is–27 Jennifers!

We played the Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado.

The above is actually us playing onstage; a photo ganked from listener Richard McDonald. The one near the end of the stack, of me and an extremely blonde guy, are ganked from the blonde dude himself, listener Chad Narva.
The portrait immediately below, from left to right; me, Scrap, Handsome Dan, Pete; the ones without me, below that, substitute our hard-smokin’ sound man, Cee-Huck. The rest more or less self-explanatory.
