Well, I guess I never recapped you all on the past few Brooklyn shows I’ve played, so I will do so now.
On January 29, I opened for Lucas Silveira at Branded Saloon in Park Slope and rocked the fuck out on my new favorite borrowed toy: the ukulele. The show was sold out to capacity. It rocked.
On Feb 10, I played at Pete’s Candy Store in Williamsburg. Never had been there, but what a cool venue. Again pretty much packed the place. I definitely will be coming back here to hang/play.
Here was the flyer, with a beautiful photo taken by my Boston roommate, Sawyer on Halloween 2008:
Yeah, those shows were pretty fun. They happened, they existed.

I apologize for not writing about this sooner…
In early December, I had the incredible opportunity to perform in Cairo, Egypt. Several bands (all of us recent graduates of Berklee College of Music) were selected by Nile Promotions, a new company run by Yasmin Tayeby, a recent alum, to perform two festival dates in Cairo and a workshop for disadvantaged Cairo children.
the Giza Pyramids and Sphinx were surreal, majestic
The experience was truly life-changing, both for the religious, historical, and natural wonders I experienced (mosques from antiquity, Giza Pyramids, the Red Sea, the Nile River, the Cairo Museum containing artifacts from King Tut’s tomb) as well as the unique context of these musical performances, two of which benefited cancer care for disadvantaged children and one of which was a U.S. embassy-sponsored workshop at the Geza Youth Centre.

Here’s the FB event for the festival. Got my passport in the mail the other day. Really pumped for some warm weather, sight-seeing, beaches, hookah, hanging with good folks, and rocking the fuck out in the Middle East.
PS: we’re playing in front of the pyramids. seriously.
