New Shows and a New CD! Oh!

Sunday, March 12th, 2006

Hi All,

It’s been a little while. I’ve missed you.

First off, two big shows in the Fox Valley…

Friday, March 24th / 5:00pm
Wheel and Sprocket (bike store)
Oshkosh, WI
This is a big party for Wheel and Sprocket bikes. They wanted to hire the Polecats and we said “heck yes!” We’re going to play all-acoustic for this. I mean no amplification whatsoever. Should be lots of fun. If you want to hear the Polecats all stripped down, I highly recommend this.

Sat, March 25th / 8:00pm / 21+
Mainstream Music Building
Oshkosh, WI
I’ll be playing a solo set at Andrew(of Happy)’s release party for his new solo project, Holly and Plastic. There will be scads of great performers including Andrew (of course), Jeff from the Catastrophe, Jeremy from Ripp Winkler, Aaron Baer (Polecats), Steve Mccabe and Erik Van Thiel (the Willis), Steve Trier, Southerly, Mike Siddall, and more. This is a party. A BYO party. There’s going to be vegetarian chili and Andy’s CDs. Go to to hear Andrew’s song, “This Particular Giant Today”.

So there’s that and then also there is that recording and mixing on my new CD, “Batteries and Blankets” is now complete. Steve Mccabe and Mark Powers turned in some wonderful performances on the disc, which was recorded at Topsoil in Oshkosh by Smart Studios’ Justin Perkins. I’ll be posting MP3s from the record really soon and am booking shows for the Midwest release tour in April and NW USA tour in May. I’ll send more complete details later but the shows so far are…

April 21/New Moon/Oshkosh, WI
April 22/Acoustic Cafe’/Menomonie, WI
April 28/Sabor Latino/Decorah, IA

Thanks so much to all of you. Can’t wait to see you on the road.
All the best, Jeff
