Mount Rock!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the show at Mt. Saint Mary’s College last night in Newburgh, NY. The SGA staff and crew were great hosts—there were cookies, t-shirts, and BAKED CHEETOS!!

It was a pleasure to share the bill with the very energetic Steve Marshall, a surprise set by the comedy duo Ben & Josh, and the headliner Jessimae Peluso, who all had great sets and were loved by the crowd.

It was especially nice to be back at The Mount because I performed there a couple of years ago and they brought me back for more. It’s always nice to be remembered.

Here’s a pic of me and the crew.

Analog Retweet!

I just found out that the New York Daily News on Monday, January 27 printed a tweet of mine! Pretty sweet!

It was from the previous day when the Rangers played the Devils in an NHL hockey game at Yankee Stadium. Here’s the tweet:

And here it is in the Daily News the next day:

Brooklyn Show Monday, Dec 9th!

Record Recall Party!

Monday, Dec 9
8:00 pm
Union Hall
702 Union St. (at 5th Ave) Brooklyn
Tickets available here.
With special guests A Brief View of the Hudson and Tom Shillue!

Some of you may have noticed the odd occurrences that have been reported in the iTunes reviews for my latest album Keep Your Jazz Hand Strong. There have been so many in fact that I’ve been advised to issue a recall of the CD, and instead of doing a boring press conference or social media outreach I decided to just have a recall party.

It’ll be like a record release party—I’ll play a full set of songs from the album (in a safe, live environment), and there will be a couple of very special guests.

And best of all, the entire show in only $8, it’s at a great Brooklyn venue, and there’s no drink minimum!

So come if you can, and if you’re one of the folks who have been hurt or inured by the CD version of the album, bring it down and you can exchange it for a copy that has been tested and approved by the FDA, the EPA, and OSHA.

Hope to see you there!

Laughingstock Music Festival–Aug 25, Chicago, IL

The Laughingstock Music Fest will be bringing over 30 comedy music acts to Chicago’s legendary rock club Double Door for a day-long orgy of music-infused comedy. Rocking 2 stages from 3pm to midnight, Laughingstock is going to be one hell of an event.

I’ll be hitting the mainstage around 8:45pm for a nice 25-minute set and I couldn’t be more excited. This is my first show back in Chicago in over a year and a half! That’s just too darn long.

I hope you can make it! Getting tickets in advance is highly recommended because with this many great performances the fest will most likely sell out. You can get tickets at this link, check out the fest’s facebook page here, and I set up a facebook event for my set if you’d like to RSVP to that to keep all of your info in one place.

Hope you can make it!

B.O.R.E.D. Tour 2013! 06.23.2013 Burbank, CA

The BORED Tour shows are always great. In the past through them I’ve met and/or performed with Dr. Demento, Barnes & Barnes (Fish Heads!), Henry Phillips and so many more I can’t even mention them all. This SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY is BORED 2013 and it will be another killer lineup.

Heard of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Freaks and Geeks? Well J. Elvis Weinstein was a founding cast member of the former and a writer/producer for the latter. Evan Wecksell, Throwing Toasters, Raymond & Scum, Hot Waffles, Phoebe Carter and I will round out the bill hosted by former Beat the Geeks host J. Keith Van Straaten.

If you’re not in the L.A. or Burbank area but have friends who are, pass the show info along to them and they’ll love you forever for telling them about a show they’ll be telling their grandchildren about.

Get advance tickets here and come to see a great show!
