Stealing out of Durham under cover of night a couple of times this spring to maybe try out a couple of new songs on my own before they grow flesh and skin, and to play whatever else I feel like playing -- between-tours solo shows are two parts ghost cave to one part incubation chamber and I've wanted to play the Old Town School of Folk Music for longer than I can say, so why not make a weekend of it? Plus there's the Somerville Theatre, which I haven't played since the Gone Primitive tour with JV: need to get back there before much more time's past. So why not now.
If you're in or near Chicago, please note that the Old Town School is a much smaller room than we usually get to play around those parts, so, you know, tarry not. Or tarry at your own risk if you're a low-grade thrillseeker and tarrying's your thing. See you out there!
