Thanks KSPC

KSPC, the college station out in Claremont, has been awesome for as long as I can remember. But this year’s staff takes the cake! They’ve just released the results of the staff and listener “best of” polls for this year, and I’m really honored that they mentioned Princess as one of their favorite local albums from 2011. So Many Wizards also gets quite a few nods. Check it out!

Thanks again, KSPC! I hope to see more of y’all in the new year!

Update!

The picture above is from my show at Pehrspace on August 1st, which was the release party for my album Princess. It was an exciting show, and I’m really grateful for all the amazing people who came to see it. Sean Carnage has more photos on his website.

I’ve been doing a lot to promote the album, but probably the most fun thing has been this interview I gave to Mark Givens (of D.I.Y. heroes Wckr Spgt) for his massive electronic literary zine, MungBeing. Mark let me talk – a lot – about my musical history, my ideas about digital distribution, and Marcel Duchamp (of course). If you like that kind of stuff, you should read it! If not, you might want to check the nice little mp3 sampler that comes along with the interview – it includes some rare and unreleased jamz from my solo act, Big Whup, the New Motherfuckers, and Pizza!

Speaking of Pizza!, we just released this new video for our old song “Be a Man.” It was directed, beautifully, by our friend Blaine Ludy. When will we finally release new music? Sooner than you’d expect…

Oh yes, and there are also a couple of live shows to promote. One is this party at 5 Star Bar to celebrate the anniversary of the Summer Fun Time Society, an event production crew headed by my pal Vivian. You can RSVP on Facebook. Here’s a flyer for that one:

Finally, I’m organizing an event with FMLY on Saturday, Aug 27 at Tierra de la Culebra in Highland Park. It’s a “stripped-down” affair, and it will feature semi-acoustic performances by the likes of the Monolators, So Many Wizards, Dnonkong, Seasons, and Magick Orchids. You can also bring an instrument if you’d like to jam as well. Here’s the Facebook invitation. A flyer is forthcoming.

Sooo… to celebrate my new album Princess, I’m going to play a Monday Night at Pehrspace on August 1st. I’m extraordinarily honored, because my performance is also the first week of a monthlong celebration of six years of Monday shows curated by Sean Carnage and Kyle Mabson. I’m so excited!

You can RSVP on Facebook. Here’s the poster:

Princess reviewed in LA Record

Earlier this year, I recorded an album called Princess that will be released July 15 via Vanity Projects. I was really happy to see that the album had been reviewed, by Mr. Walt Gorecki, in the new LA Record. Here’s what he said:
