SF Show w/ Chris Schlarb and Joel St Julien!


I’m happy to share news of an upcoming SF show I’ll be playing opening up for Chris Schlarb on tour in support of his new album Making The Saint (Asthmatic Kitty). Also playing is the local sound shape-shifter Joel St Julien. It will be hosted in the beautiful Holy Innocents Episcopal Church here in SF. Should be a really lovely and intimate evening of quiet music. I plan on doing an acoustic set for this one. Hope you can make it out!

I’ll be participating in two exciting shows this Saturday June 21st for Summer Solstice…

The first is part on an ongoing collaboration with visual artist James Sterling Pitt in conjunction with his fellowship at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley. The event is set to take place between 4 and 7p. I’ll do a 45 min set starting promptly at 5p. There will be some refreshments provided. Please try and arrive early to take in the art and get a comfy spot to listen. It is free, but we will have a place for donations. Visit the Facebook event for additional info. To learn more about the project, please read here.

Kala is located at 2990 San Pablo Ave, Bekeley, CA (Directions & Map)


The second show will be held at LCM in Oakland. I’ll be sharing the evening with one of my favorite PDX bands, Golden Retriever who will be supporting their newest album, Seer out now on Thrill Jockey. Also playing is Madelyn Merkey and Glochids. It gets going around 9p and has a $5-10 sliding scale. Visit the Facebook event for more info.

LCM is located at the intersection of 8th & Peralta in Oakland.


Really hope you make it out!





I had a nice leisurely trek up the coast to Portland and Seattle to play a couple super fun shows and take in the summer vibes. A big thanks goes out to Donal and Mike for offering up their lovely home, Dewey for hosting the Portland show at his awesome new music shop Mothership Music, as well as to the kind folks from Debacle Fest (especially Samuel) for inviting me up to play. Good times were had!

Enjoy the pics…
