Jake Danna will then stop in at the Pillbox (Mobile) to finish up a project he and Brick have been working on for a year or more.  The project simply called “They Are Famous” will be a 5 song EP for release by year’s end.

Travel & Leisure Re-Released for Record Store Day

tlposter2web

I grew up in the Record Cellar.  I discovered most of the bands who influence me as the result of Pat Todd and Rick Patterson tipping me off to the Jam and the Clash among many others.  I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that you can find my CD in that store.  And now, there’ll be two!   Travel & Leisure was the prequel to this year’s Point to the Horizon and it is my best seller online.  So, we all figured why not make some CDs for Record Store Day?

There are some hidden tracks on the Re-Release that are only available on the physical copy.  We found some live tracks from the last couple of years, one of which was recorded by an audience member at the Elbo Room in Chicago that showed up in an anonymous email!

Bassist of the Gods, Eric Lee will be joining me for a couple of half hour sets starting at noon.  We will have both Point to the Horizon and Travel & Leisure for sale.    Plus,  we will be offering them as a package for only $10!

Then, that night Eric and I will be joined by the amazing Ray Major at the funky and wonderful Bokeh Lounge at 9:30pm in Evansville.  It’s a Re-Release Party!!   See you there!!!
