It is being held at a secret location so good luck with finding it!
More music by me and that band Cutie Eyeballs (we’re still looking for a vocalist so just an instrumental demo is up but it is majorly awesome even without vocals) that I’m in are up on my Bandcamp! Click here and go on a journey!
Rarely do I see a good noisey rock band anymore. Usually when I see a band on stage with guitars, drum and bass it’s hardcore or metal or some cross between the two or the never going out of style garage rock.
But last Sunday I saw Taiwan Housing Project and they ruled. Fronted by members of Harry Pussy, The Fells, and Little Claw they created for me the perfect blend of crazed vocals over pounding noisey rhythms.
Catch them on tour now!!
This has been a rough year for me personally so if you see me on the street give me a smile or a “Hey!” or if you know me well, give me a hug, I need one of those these days.
On to business….My tour manager Lisa Matthews has two shows this month. They’ll be her last till late fall or when Josh Taylor asks her to play again. Each show is listed in the Show tab and each should be good.
The first is at the Larimer Lounge. Its a LGBTQ rock show, something I think is extremely cool. Techno is fun and everything but its dominance at every LGBTQ event or bar is annoying. Some of us like other stuff so I’m glad this is happening. It’s on Sunday, June 18 from 2PM to 12AM.
The next is a show at the Mutiny Information Cafe with the touring band Gaythiest. It should be fun and Lisa has told me she has a crazy show planned for this one so if you want to see her but only have one opportunity, this is the show to go to. Special guests in her set, Born Dumb.
Anyways, go to Lisa’s shows! They’ll be great! And if you see me, be nice things have been hard and I’m sick of being beaten down by life.
My booking agent, Lisa Matthews will be playing two special shows this summer one at a ‘ask a punk’ location on May 22 with Shannon Ley from L.A., Midgut (denver) and Midwife (denver). The other show is at the Mutiny Information Cafe on June 27 with the touring band, Gaytheist from Portland, Oregon.
These will be her only shows this summer so don’t miss your opportunity!!!
One of my favorite artists in the Southwest (and admittedly, the little sister of one of my friends)! Check out her studio tour!
And if you like her stuff, buy some of it here!
In two weeks I will have 100 11 x 17 posters and 100 4 x 6 postcards available for sale of my Barbie Masks project – exploring the concepts of gender, sexuality, identity, and present beliefs about the future through the manipulation of a common cultural icon (the Barbie doll). The below image is of a “rough” version of the poster.
I made the dolls and my friend/collaborator Tiana M.B. took the photo!
If you are interested in purchasing one in advance of their sale in my online store (which will be up soonish, I swear!) please contact me via the contact tab.
I put my short film on Youtube so some friends outside the U.S.A. could see it and now, I’m going to take it down till the Fall of 2017.
I made the film so I could tour around and show it which is what I’m going to try and do again this Winter and Spring.
First showing will be in the Los Angeles area in January or February.
If you’re interested in showing it in your area, send me a letter:

Not for the weak at heart: Flute Puns.
I’ve known Kyle Mabson and Jonathan Snipes for so long I can’t really remember how we first meet and became friends. Jonathan ran the crazy band Captain Ahab and now is in clipping. While I have no idea what Kyle exactly does, other than play in a lot of bands and make a lot of music (he released a great hip-hop album this year, check it out!) and travel around with famous rock bands. Either way, he and Jonathan had been threatening for years to release an all flute album.
Yesterday they finally did!
Also, many years ago my friend Lee Sanders and I dedicated a lot of time to getting drunk and making an unabridged audiobook of Moby Dick. A few years back I put some of the chapters online. I’m about to finish digitizing all of the chapters but I haven’t been able to find a place to put them up on the Internet. If you have any suggestions, shoot me a message. Its almost 30 hours of audio, way too big for bandcamp or soundcloud.
You can listen to the first couple of chapters here!
