Thanks to everyone who made Feb. 21st at Good Hurt a special night. It was great to have the Dead Messengers on stage together again. We'll look to do some more full band shows later in the year. In the meantime, there are tons of new dates on the calendar all along the west coast.
First, I'm doing two events in early March you should know about. March 7th I'm playing a fundraiser for my alma mater, the Masters of Professional Writing Program at USC. The show is at one of my favorite venues in town, Bordello in Downtown LA. My good friend Ben De La Cour will be opening.
Then on Friday evening, March 12, I'm playing the most intimate of shows with another great friend, Elena, at Cafe Muse in Hollywood. If you came to the Feb. 21st show you'll remember Elena singing a few songs with Giulio just prior to my set. This is my first time playing down at Cafe Muse and I'm looking forward to it.
Later in the month, I'll be teaming up with the good folks at Hollowbody L.A. to a do a show at Cafe Cordiale in Sherman Oaks on March 24th. This is a famed musician hangout and jam spot right on Ventura Blvd. with free parking and NO COVER. Definitely come check this show out.
Finally the biggest news is my west coast tour with the aformentioned Ben De La Cour. Ben and I met at our show at Trip in Santa Monica on January 3rd, and we immediately clicked. We decided to throw together a week's worth of west coast dates, and I'm happy to say it's been booked. There will no doubt be lots of promotion of the tour itself that will pop up over the next month, but I'll go ahead and give you the official schedule now as well:
Saturday, March 27 - Velo Rouge Cafe - San Francisco, CA
Monday, March 29 - Muddywaters - Portland, OR
Tuesday, March 30 - Tost Lounge - Seattle, WA
Thursday, April 1 - Mama Buzz Cafe - Oakland, CA
Friday, April 2 - The Red Vic Peace Cafe - San Francisco, CA
Saturday, April 3 - Last Stage West - Atascadero, CA
We hope to see you in one of these cities! I'll keep you posted on all the events as they come closer, as well as more tour news.
