3-4-07 @ Turf Club St.Paul, MN (“Seeds of Aster”)

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

Howdy. I’m back home after tour. All went well and it was a pleasure seeing a bunch of you folks out at the shows.

Here’s a video Mike Siddall shot of “Seeds of Aster” at the Turf Club show. I was nice and sick and thought I was going to barf in front of the crowd. Made it through a fun, if a little woozy set…

Also, I really think you should check out Joel Arant’s new video on his Myspace page for his song, “Babyface”. Just make sure and watch the whole thing. You’ll be glad you did. That’s at…

Hello people.

Are you doing alright?

It’s been wonderful to see some of you out and about for the last couple of weeks. Makes me very glad to have a mailing list when I get blindsided by folks I haven’t seen in a long time. Tour is going well. I’m at my parents’ house in Janesville, WI right now, resting up for my last couple of shows at Pizza Luce in Duluth, MN on the 9th with Charlie Parr and Trampled By Turtles then at the Acoustic Cafe in Menomonie, WI on the 10th.

So far, there’s been a ton of driving, a lot of it in the midst of blizzards. The other drivers on the roads have been intelligent and courteous so far so I haven’t seen anything too grisly go down. I’ve just been taking my time. Cleveland was beautiful, as I had suspected. I got in and out of Chicago without a hitch, had a fine time, and met some wonderful folks. I’ve been put up on some of the finest couches and guest beds the Midwest has to offer, and have been served more excellent breakfasts than I could possible deserve. Got hideously ill in St. Paul for my Radio K and Turf Club sets with Charlie Parr, which lent a surreal intensity to the whole evening. Spent a night in a floating home at the Latsch Island community in Winona, MN. Have gotten to hang out with lots of wonderful dogs and cats (and their human companions). I have also eaten about two bags of Hall’s Mentholyptus cough drops. There’s a lot more, but I should get off the computer soon.

Meanwhile, here’s a video Mike Siddall shot of “Seeds of Aster” at the Turf Club show…
