2015: finish strong!

"Finish strong!" was what my tae kwon do teacher told me right before I tore all the tendons in my shoulder. But that's what I'm gonna do now! 

Three shows in December, in three cities, in three different musical contexts!
2015-12-5 | JL solo guitar at Grand Banks cassette release party, Hensley's in the Ix Art Park, Charlottesville VA

2015-12-7 | JL and Hampus instrumental duo at Troost in Greenpoint, NYC

2015-12-28 | True Love Always (duo version with JL and MD) at Teen-Beat Holiday Extravaganza with Jonny Cohen's Love Machine and Cotton Candy, at the Galaxy Hut in Arlington VA.

(Also note that this will be a kind of pre-release show for the new TLA EP "Return of the Wild Style Fashionists", coming out on February 19; come down and grab a copy before it hits the streets.)

Fall into Winter Sale

Okay, so there's not actually a sale or anything, other than that I have a new solo guitar album up on the Bandcamp. It's called Black Gold , and it was recorded when I played exactly one year ago today at Black Gold Records with The Hands Free. Jascha Narveson, who is a genius in his own right, was a complete gentleman and recorded my set, so I'm just gonna pay it forward here. Which is to say I will allow you to pay a small amount of money to own it.

Also coming up--an amazing show December 5th in Charlottesville Virginia. It's the cassette release for Grand Banks' new opus on Oxtail Recordings, and there's gonna be some real heavy hitters, so I highly advise quitting your job and going to Charlottesville for this one. 

More shows in the works as well, both TLA and solo guitar-style. See you in the pit!
