Rock, meat, scissors

Hey everyone-

Some news to share:

I’ll be making the trek to Toronto to take part in some of the festivities during NXNE. Saved by Vinyl and Kelp records are throwing a bbq and bands bash at Global Village Backpackers (460 King Street West) on Friday, June 13 from noon to 7 pm. I’ll hit the stage early on in the proceedings at 12:30 pm.

My official NXNE showcase will be at midnight on the 13th at the Free Times Café (320 College Street). A singer-songwritery-type venue, referred to as “intimate” by the stage manager (read: small), so come early if you wanna check it out.

I’ll also be playing a show on June 18th at the Plaza Theatre in Calgary (1133 Kensington Road NW) at 6:30 PM. This is an awareness event put on by the good folks at the Arusha Centre regarding the City of Calgary’s continued use of cosmetic pesticides.

In other news, my new record is complete, and will be released on CD/LP in September by Saved by Radio/Saved by Vinyl. You can read a review of it here:

If you’re iPod-inclined, and you can’t wait for hard-copy, you can get an mp3 version (cheap!!) here:

There’s also a few tunes up here:

The mp3 download from Zunior will come free with the LP, but you’ll hafta wait.

It’s called “In Vein”, and features Jay Crocker (who produced it), Steve Fletcher, Brooker Buckingham, Chris Dadge, Scott Munro, J.C. Jones and Andrew Blizzard. A tour is being planned for late September/October- more details to come as dates get firmed up.

And lastly- a request. As always, with the release of a record comes financial pressures. I’m eternally grateful to my friends at Saved by Radio for everything they’ve done and are continuing to do for me. Some of the responsibility for releasing this record falls squarely on my shoulders, however, and my well has run dry. In a bid to avoid credit card interest rates, I’m making pre-orders for the CD/LP available, in the hopes that I can defray some of the costs of manufacturing.

If you’d like to help out in this regard, I’ll send you a copy of the new record (in whichever format you’d like) as soon as they’re in my possession. I don’t want to put a price on it- whatever you think is fair is cool with me, no questions asked. Send me an email if this is something you’d like to do, and we’ll make arrangements.

Thanks in advance, and I hope to see you out at one of the shows!
