Summertime Blues

So I've been on vacation. That sounds kind of dumb, considering I don't really do anything anyway. I feel dumb even typing that. I've had the chance to hit South Padre, which is in surprisingly good shape, and I've been visiting friends listening to new music. Went tubing on the river. A must in Texas. Got a new phone so hopefully I'll have some better video clips, and I got a new guitar thats coming out on the road next week. I wont say what it is, but I'll give you a hint. I said I would get one of these again soon. Finally got a hair cut. Your welcome mom. Been watching Louis CK's new show on FX called "Louie" and its amazingly funny.

One of my new musical discoveries is this girl Courtney Jaye. She is a pop singer who had a couple of radio hits. Most of it is not my musical taste however I stumbled onto a cd while cleaning out my suitcase. When we were playing with Floating Action at the Earl in Atlanta, She joined Seth and the band for a tune called "Sunlight". Seth gave me her record and I forgot all about it. He produced her last record in the Seth Kauffman style and it sounds very cool. I was driving in the valley listening to the new BRMC record and heard a voice in the background. I looked up the notes and it said Courtney Jaye sang on it. I raced to find that cd and put it on and I'm glad I did. The style of this record is very interesting.

Everything Seth does is cool, and this record is no exception. Heres a video for a tune. The record is called "The Exotic Sounds of Courtney Jaye" Listen to a tune on her myspace called "Maru Maru". Its great.

Went to see the Doctor. Why do they give you paper gowns at the Dr.'s office? Its humiliating. I think you can tell exactly how I feel by this picture my bro took. I've been given the clean bill of health to get on the r
oad and thats what I intend to do. Check out these dates and say hey if you get the chance.

  1. Hey Dante! We'll be seeing you in Bham in a few weeks and bringing friends along. Can't wait!

  2. Man, no Omaha date, and no centrally located Midwest date on a Saturday. I may try to swing a bat for the Lawrence show. It's always a fun time there!

  3. Looking forward to Birmingham. The bottletree has a great reputation for putting on cool shows. Hang in there Sean. I like Omaha. I'm hoping we get to Iowa and Nebraska one more time this year.

  4. Sorry to announce that New Orleans has been canceled. We will reschedule for later in the year hopefully. It was just a a scheduling conflict.
