As mentioned in a previous post, we have a show on the books, having jumped on a bill with touring band Brothers Gow at High Dive October 2nd. Still waiting for the third act on the bill at this writing, but very much looking forward to getting Northern Thorns on stage next month before a 2-week spate of shows I took with another group at The Triple Door.
I know I’ve sat on this album for months longer than was necessary. Really it was all about album art and title, and laziness. But I’m pleased to report that the art is finished and I’ll be ordering CDs in the next day or so! Hoping to have them to give out to all alumni and start selling by the end of September.
Here are some of the concepts for the art. I won’t reveal which one became the design just yet:
Oh, and in show news: we have jumped on a bill with Brothers Gow at The High Dive on October 2nd. Looking for some good friends to fill the last slot on the bill…
First press? Thank you Vanguard Seattle!
We’ll be playing a relatively short-notice show at my home away from home The Royal Room on August 16th, with friends Noonmoon. It’s an early one, show starts at 7:30. The first time we’ve played a weekday also, in fact.
We’ll have yet another new lineup for this show, and I’m excited to add Austin Bustad on rhythm guitar. I’ve been waiting to play music with this guy for years.
It’s been a long, busy July with much wedding and honeymoon planning and no NT shows. I’m stoked to get it out live again.
Off to the first rehearsal…
