This is the entire set from our last gig, a week after our 5-day tour of the Northeast, at Calvary Church. We had the pleasure to open for one of my favorite Philly bands, Stinking Lizaveta. I had a first-timers experience seeing them open for Sleepytime Gorilla Museum at the North Star a few years ago; they blew my mind. No joke. Okay, enough with the romance! Here's the set:

This Friday at the Green Line Cafe on Locust, Split Red for the third time will be leaving the amps at home. You heard right! This has been a recent tradition for us to do acoustic shows. We were asked by Nick Millevoi a few months back at a Highwire Gallery show he was curating to perform this way and it seemed like an interesting prospect. This will be the second time at the Green Line that we will be presenting this music in this setting (the first included an electrified Rick Iannacone) and the fact that it's on John Coltrane's birthday makes it even more special. Joining us on the bill will be N.Y. saxophonist Louise D.E. Jensen, Dan Liptock of Warshack and Deep Possum doing a solo set, and Ben Remsen of Little Ocean will be in the mix as well (I recommend checking out Little Ocean's latest release, Pictures at an Ocean Mission, available on Bandcamp).

No, not quite. But, here's a snippet of myself with my good pals Kohoutek at the Empty Space (aka Germ Books) in Philadelphia. I had the honor to play with Scott Verrastro on a few occasions before, but not with this lineup; would love to explore this again! 500mg (Mike Gibbons of Bardo Pond), CDBH (piano/drum duo from Brooklyn) and straight from Japan, Kawaguchi Masami's New Rock Syndicate played as well and they were all phenomenal and full of positive vibrations.
