Pull up a chair, this is gonna be a big update. Comfortable? OK, cool:
First, we were happy to learn that we’d been featured last week on NPR’s All Songs Considered. They played the first song from Get Lonely; I don’t know how long they archive for, but as of right now you can hear it here.
Next, some of you may have heard a rumor that we’re touring soon. It’s true! On August 10th, I’ll be doing a solo set (though I may bring Perry from The Prayers and Tears of Arthur Digby Sellers just to pick ‘n’ grin a little) at the Athens Popfest. A couple of weeks later, I’ll be heading down the west coast playing several solo instores & doing radio sessions; I’ll end up at UCLA playing a benefit for 826 NYC, alongside Jenny Lewis, Aimee Mann, Dave Eggars, and Sarah Vowell; tickets for this event are available here. As to the instores, these are they:
8/21: Easy Street, Seattle WA
11:00 p.m.
This is a midnight release party instore kinda deal, as Get Lonely‘s release date is 8/22. Never having played one of these types of shows before, I am way excited.
8/22: Amoeba, San Francisco
6:00 p.m.
This will be the inaugural session of Youtube‘s “Sessions at Amoeba” sessions; since I, like everybody, spend approximately seven hours a day looking at old Siouxsie videos on Youtube, I am stoked about this.
8/23: Amoeba, Hollywood
7:00 p.m.
After that Peter‘s gonna get his driving foot all fired up and we’re gonna tour ’til we bleed.

On this tour, we’ll be joined by Christine Fellows. Christine writes the best damned songs in the whole world. For real. Don’t take my word for it, follow the link from her name: there are songs are streaming on her site, and they are little wonders of melody and emotion. We are honored to have her with us.
There are other dates in the mix which will be announced here as they get confirmed. There will be more touring later in the year. And that’s about all I’ve got to say right now. Now go get yourself something to eat. Your blood sugar is probably getting low, sitting in front of the computer like this.
