October onslaught

Lots going on in October including a West Coast tour with Chris Brokaw's End of the Night Band and the release of Hound Dog Taylor's Hand's new self-titled LP (their second LP, their first with me) and some related shows.

First off, to celebrate the May release of Chris Brokaw's album End of the Night, he's assembled a crackerjack band featuring me (they can't all be winners), cellist Lori Goldston, drummer Luther Gray (all of whom are featured on the album) and drummer Dave Abramson. We'll be heading down the West Coast with some excellent acts like Kinski, Ilyas Ahmed/Jonathan Sielaff, Bill Orcutt, Jeff Parker and more.

10/10/19 Seattle WA @ Clock-Out Lounge w/ Kinski, SkullKat *Event page*
10/12/19 Chico CA @ Naked Lounge w/ Donald Beaman *Event page*
10/13/19 San Francisco CA @ The Lost Church w/ Chuck Johnson *Event page*
10/14/19 San Francisco CA @ The Lost Church w/ Bill Orcutt *Event page*
10/15/19 Los Angeles CA @ Zebulon w/ Jeff Parker *Event page*

As all that is happening, Hound Dog Taylor's Hand's new s/t LP is coming out on Canada's Planned Obsolescence Recording & Novelty Inc. on October 11th. Hound Dog Taylor's hand is the Pacific Northwest's premier purveyor of avant-primitive jazz rock featuring Jeffery Taylor on electric guitar, John Seman on contrabass, Mark Ostrowski on drums and as of late 2017, me on electrified trumpet. Pre-orders are available now and we've got T-shirts (a first for me)! There's even a Wire cover on the LP, but the post-punk cognoscenti deemed the trumpet to be not post-punk enough, so I'm not on that track. And as if that's not enough, there's also a VIDEO for the opening track "Look Up and Let Go."

To celebrate all of that, we'll be playing a couple shows in October and a record release show on November 1st.

10/19/19 @ Midden Festival, The Edison Granary, Bow WA
