Summer Snapshots

While I try to get work done it's hard to write a new post, so I thought I'd put up some photos from the summer. IMG_20150601_124027_888

I accompanied Eric to Red Hook for his record mastering session, it was pouring most of the day but the sun came out for a little while when I saw these clever bucket planters

We played a couple shows with the Schoemer Formation this summer, another one coming up next Friday Sept 25 at Low Beat in Albany!

Wes Stace invited us to play with a wacky assortment of characters - it was a good night in the city.
