There’s a whole lotta motherlodgin going on these days.
On Jan 20th, we, and by we, I mean Alana Amram, Thomas Bartlett, Rob Beitzel, Mx. Justin Vivian Bond, Rob Cantwell, Nath Ann Carrera, Michael Cerveris, Rebecca Hart, Erin Hill, Brian Kantor, Josh Kaufman, Dawn Landes, Paul Loren, Corn Mo, Taylor Mac, Nate Martinez, Lucas Papaelias a.k.a. L.P. Funk, Adam Rapp, Lady Rizo, Ray Rizzo, Michael Shannon, Georgiana Starlington, Elizabeth Ziman, Natalie Bajandas, John Byrne, Kimmet Cantwell, Danny Flanigan, Tim Halcomb, Michael Arthur, and myself, put on the Motherlodge Fleetwood Mac Orgy, a pretty ridiculous fundraiser at Joe’s Pub in NYC.
a bit more info and some photos from the Orgy
It was quite the splendid evening. Sold out house, fantastic performers, deep energy. The money raised will go towards our Spring Motherlodge in Louisville KY, March 28-31, the final schedule of which will be announced soon (and which we’re EXTREMELY VERY RIDICULOUSLY HOLY CRAPWADS EXCITED ABOUT).
The new Yet Cut Breath record is mixed and off to be mastered. Anna, Jake, Luke, and I are really excited about this one, and we’re aiming to get this one out there as soon as a couple last puzzle pieces fall into place. When it’s finally ready to go, you’ll hear about it here first, unless you hear about it somewhere else before that, in which case you’ll hear about it here second, third, fourth, or some larger extended numerical designation depending on how many places you look for updates about new records coming out.
This winter has had me huddled up in various studios, working on records with friends old and new (not to mention working on Spring Motherlodge, which IS GOING TO BE MEGA-AWESOME), but this upcoming week, I’m going to be filling in the drum chair with The Silverhounds, a psychobilly/thrash trio from NJ, for a little east-coast-to-midwest jaunt.
