One and Only August Show

0 Comments 04 August 2009

THURSDAY, 8.13.09 – 7P

In Europe they take the month of August off. I’ve decided to be all European this year and don’t have any official shows on the books this month. But as I was looking at my empty August calendar feeling the shiftlessness that has made Europe what it is today, I thought “man, I gotta play some shows in Europe.”

Seems my friend Zach Djanikian from The Brakes was feeling it, too (the playing shows in Europe thing, not the shiftless thing. Well, okay, maybe some of the shiftless thing). Anyway, Zach and I are embarking on a 2-3 week tour playing shows in the UK, France, Switzerland and perhaps even Germany in September. To make it happen, a very cool non-profit organisation (that’s the European spelling) called The Philadelphia Sessions has organised (because what better thing for an organisation to do?) a house concert to help raise funds to help offset the travel costs.

Here’s a few words about The Philadelphia Sessions from their website:

“(The Philadelphia Sessions) establishes relationships with other international cities and raises funds to send local musicians to perform as ambassadors of Philadelphia. We also host musicians from abroad and help them showcase here in our area.”

I can get behind that. If you can now get behind me getting behind them, we’re pretty close to a conga line – and who doesn’t love a conga line?

This will be an intimate house concert with Zach and I each doing a set as well as playing some songs together. We’ve just started playing on each other’s tunes and doing some spontaneous covers and it has been a treat. Those of you who have attended any of my house concerts in the past know that there is something a little different and special about them from the shows at clubs and I know having the duo thing will bring even more to the party.

So, come to the party, okay?
