Let’s have a contest, shall we? For a while now, thanks to you all, Evil Webmaster Faust, and the miracle of Cyberspace (thank you Al Gore, you genius), I have been steadily laying the groundwork for complete domination of the “Indie Folk” sub-genre of the the musical Marketplace. As members of the “Jeff Mitchell E-mail Announcement List” you have all showed your fanatical dedication to all things “Jeff Mitchell”. From answering the “Bob Baker How To Be An Indie Whore” questionaire, to providing insightful “questions” for the “Jeff Mitchell Faux-Interview” interview, you have all, time and again, proved your worth. Today, it is time to give the Devil his Due. You shall be rewarded….

It is time for the “Jeff Mitchell E-mail Announcement List” to receive a new name. The List subscriber to supply the winning name (judged by Me, Jeff Mitchell) will receive a coveted CDR of rare and unreleased songs performed by Me. This CD will not be the same old same old. Oh no. It will be very special. And, not only will the winner receive the coveted CDR, but S(he) will also be awarded various Tchochkes Of Appreciation from my private collection. So let the games begin…

Also of note, if you are near Dubuque, Iowa, or would like to make a roadtrip, come see Me and Maureen Kilgore, Dubuque’s finest singer and axe-master give up the Singer-Songwriter goods at…

One last item. I just got word from Mike at Doubleplusgood Records http://www.doubleplusgoodrecords.com that “Batteries and Blankets” has just been sent out to about 100 radio stations around the country. It was mailed out in tandem with Doubleplusgood alum Andrew Johnson’s new “Holly and Plastic” album. Here’s a whole list of all the stations and how to contact them to request songs from either album. I recommend addressing the DJs in a shrill voice so that they’re sure to hear you clearly over the rumble “subwoofers”.

I care for you all, and as a result, would like to leave you with this admonition. Woodtick season is upon us. I would ask that you all check each other for these small pests thoroughly and often.

your musical friend, Jeff Mitchell

The Main Entrance and Dr. Kickbutt tunes…

Wednesday, June 14th, 2006

Hi All,

Just a couple things. First off, I’ll be playing a solo show at…

THE MAIN ENTRANCE
This Saturday, June 17th
215 West Blackhawk Ave.
Prairie Du Chien, WI

For those not in the know, (as we who are “in the know” are wont to say) the Main is a classic Wisconsin dive bar in the best sense. Lots of good beers, interesting folks, and a long tradition of support for original music. The Main regularly hosts blues and folk greats like Cam Waters, Charlie Parr, Joe Price, Radislav Lorkovic and many more. If you’re in the area, it’s well worth the drive. You can check out their schedule at…

http://www.mainentrance.net

In other news, I strongly suggest you take a trip to my jugband partner Aaron Baer’s website…

http://www.aaron-baer.com

…and check out the new stuff he’s got posted there. There’s lots of video of Aaron, the Jackson Street Polecats, and Dr. Kickbutt and the Orchestra of Death (Baer’s vaudeville group. I play the saw.). He’s got rough mixes posted on the site from the soon to be released Dr. Kickbutt album. I think this is going to be a really fun record.

OK. That’s all for now. Hope all’s well with all y’all.

yours, Jeff
