100th show!

On Saturday night, I played at Gable Music Ventures‘ “The Six” singer-songwriter showcase in Wilmington, DE. I closed out the night and enjoyed watching Lauren Kuhne, Stewart Lewis, Joy Ike, Elephants Gerald, and Sol Knopf all play before me. It was great to meet the wonderful Joy Ike. She runs one of my favorite musician blogs, Grassrootsy. Through that site, she has helped me get to where I am today. Yay. It was great to meet the other performers as well. Sol is the only other musician that I’ve played with who is from Smyrna. It was only Lauren’s second show, but she is very impressive. Yeah.

This show marked my 100th performance (solo, as Battleshy Youths, and as The Honey Badgers) since I started playing music publicly in December 2010. It was a great night. I played a new song and a few others that I don’t often perform and then Erin joined me for a couple.

Here is the new one, based on Bukowski’s “Bluebird” –


Also, Erin had her last pageant-y event last night. She is amazing.

record store day!

A day of indie celebration!

Erin and I wore our matching Honey Badger t-shirts out to Main Street today to get some music and noms. I didn’t find any vinyl that I wanted, but I was rewarded with Switchfoot’s special “Vice Re-Verses” release, which I didn’t know was going to be out today:

Exciting stuff, really great remixes by various producers. We’ve got a show tonight at the Film Brothers Co-op on Market Street in Wilmington (Facebook event page) and tomorrow in Plains, PA (Misericordia University – Facebook event page). Come check us out (:
