I'm a public radio listener/baseball fan/movie buff whose passion is music.
I like to think of myself as politically aware, but I also love the mundane (celebrity gossip - woohoo!). I usually fall asleep watching The Colbert Report while doing a crossword puzzle, and as a result I have pen ink on all my bed linens and pajamas. Too much info? Maybe, but I think it says something, though I'm not sure what.
By day, I work as a computer programmer; by night, I'm a bar and club rat. I sing with one band (Chandler Travis Philharmonic) and several of its variations (Chandler Travis Philharmonette, Modern Maturity); I sell merchandise for another band (The Incredible Casuals); and I try to check out the Cape Cod music scene as often as I can haul my sorry old ass out of the house.
Just weeks after getting a chance to sing with the fabulous Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby at a house party concert in Woods Hole (they asked me to sing some harmony vocals on "Goin' Back" to close the evening's entertainment), I got to sing with another great songwriter & performer, Ray Mason. My friend Belinda of Bubbles in the Think Tank captured us on video:
If you get a chance to see any of these fabulous performers in concert or buy their albums ... DO IT!
The show is even available as a live HD video stream for those of you who:
live too far from Cambridge to make it
aren't crazy enough to drive from the far-flung Isle of Langerhans to get to the show
are afraid of Cambridge
You can buy tickets in advance from Club Passim ($15 or $13 if you're a Passim member)
You can even buy your live stream "ticket" from Concert Window ($3 and yes, the band gets a portion of that!)
Of course, we'll have the CD available for sale at the show (we're even doing a deal with Club Passim that if you become a member of Passim that night you get a free copy of the CD as a thank you gift for your membership). If you want to listen to the album ahead of time or can't make it to the show and want to order it online, check out this preview:
