Triple Duty

Next week I’m pulling triple duty, which is fitting because I’m a triplet. Terrible pun. Sorry, on to the news.

I’ll be playing with Mr. Kind, Split Screens, and Ezra Furman. 3 bands 2 days. Here’s the rundown:

Mr. Kind will be playing a cozy venue in the Mission, The Lost Church. This show will be intimate and feature Mr. Jesse Cafiero (the driving force behind Split Screens) on upright bass.

Split Screens is the solo project of Jesse Cafiero that I have the good fortune of playing in. After recording Split Screens’ EP with Rory O’ Connor (Tycho, Com Truise) Jesse’s finally releasing his lovechild to the world. By that I mean iTunes. The EP comes out Dec 4th and we’ll be celebrating its release on Thursday.

Ezra Furman is back from a European tour with Nada Surf which can only be adequately recapped by Ezra himself on his blog. We’ll be headlining the bill at Brick and Mortar.

In other random news, I’m recording my EP in December. Yes, I sometimes attempt to play piano and play a “real instrument” other than drums.

See you at the gig!

Tour Time



It seems like I was on tour yesterday. I set out for 5 days on the road with Ezra Furman, and that was a freaking blast. Pamona College was awesome (most hospitable people ever). In San Diego, we met fans that drove from Vegas to San Diego to catch us play, and another pair of fans that drove from 4 hours away to see us play. In LA, we played to over 200 people at the Satellite Bar and I stared out at an audience singing along every word to every song. Surreal doesn’t cut it. The experience was jarring in the best possible way. 

Now, I’m setting out on tour again with my boys Mr. Kind. Unfortunately, I missed the first gig in SLO, but this just makes me hungrier to get out there and get playing. Fueling our tour will be a plentiful supply of podcasts, Cliff bars, coffee and rambling stories. We’ll be hitting Frazier Park, Valencia, Modesto and San Jose. I’ll keep a daily-ish recap of each day. Until then, onward and upward and peep the updated shows page to see the next Mr. Kind, Split Screens, and Ezra Furman gigs!
