Writing to you from stage left of the Crest Theater in Sacramento CA. Tonight's show is less than two hours away. I wanted to get these notes made before I hit stage tonight. It's a great mix we have here. I played it all the way through last night when I was in Reno and it is sounding good to me! You will see a lot of our regular friends in the show and a few things that may be new to you. We've been doing a lot of Duke Ellington lately, I hope you Fanatics have been digging that. Remember that I will be live next week! I will go from the K, right to the stage at Largo and keep jamming! Fanatic is as Fanatic does!
Hey you LA area Fanatics, tickets for my three shows at the Largo, 11-13 are now available through MusicToday. It's been a little frustrating dealing with how Largo goes about ticket sales but it's not my venue. I was hoping to do more shows there but I don't like how they work the ticket thing, it's too laid back and amateur for me, so I cut the shows off at three. Will be raising money for the WM3 and Holly Grove, so your attendance will help others.
A couple of nights ago, I was in Washington DC to host the 30th anniversary of the 9:30 Club. It was a great night of DC area talent. Everyone was great. I got there part way in, due to a flight leaving late but I caught a great deal of it. I was gutted to walk in as the Evens were packing up their gear! Bob Mould and Ted Leo were great, Clutch crushed it, the Pie Tasters were great and then Trouble Funk hit stage to finish it, and they were amazing. It was at least the best night of the year to be standing in front of TF with Ian and Alec MacKaye as Trouble dropped the bomb. After the event was over, we hung out on the sidewalk outside the venue, me, Ian, Alec, Guy Picciotto, Brendan Canty and others for quite awhile and then I went back to Dulles to fly back to Oregon to resume the tour. Days later, here I am, ready to hit stage.
Next week, we are live! Next week I am doing three nights at Largo so tune in, go go go and STAY FANATIC!!!
