Some pictures of Chevalier Fest I last weekend at the Overtime Saloon in St. Albans.
If you look closely you can see Tanner and Boz and Brian, but not 1 picture of JB! Drummers get no respect!

This is kinda cool...

'On the Road' un-edited to be published in 2007.

Getting ready for Multiplicity '06- I'm bummed that I'm going to miss the Crombie St. block party and the Old North End Ramble but I gotta support the 'burgh.

Everyone have a fun weekend!

Art Zoo

From the Burlington Free Press dot com:

"A free one-day event called Art Zoo takes over Battery Park in Burlington from 3-9 p.m. Saturday. One of the creative forces behind the art-and-music mini-festival is Jonny Aquadora, formerly the powerhouse drummer behind Burlington rock trio Fire the Cannons. Art Zoo will feature performance artists as well as bands from Burlington, Boston and Montreal. The "Above the Clouds Acoustic Stage" hosts quietly intense singer-songwriter Anna Pardenik and ex-Dialogue for Three mastermind Rob Koier from 3-5 p.m. The "Electric Stage" operates from 5:30-9 p.m. with Momster (a wacky creative duo you just have to see to believe), Boston group Hats and Glasses, Montreal's Many Mental Mistakes, Aquadora's latest project Magic Sparkle and Burlington groups The 78s and The Cush."

anyone going to this? I probably will...

If anyone is interested, I'm playing in a pick-up band Friday July 21st 8pm-ish at the Overtime Saloon in sunny St. Albans, VT. All cover songs, Beatles, Elton John, Chicago, Fleetwood Mac, even a little Skynyrd. Should be a fun time for all....

How I almost Killed Two Kids Last Night

I was returning from seeing ‘The Proposition’ last night with Eboni, driving North on S. Winooski. I pulled up to the stop sign at either Maple or King, not sure- one block from Main. There was a skater bro shirtless holding a board running around stopping traffic, I was like ‘what is this idiot doing?’ just thinking he was fucking around- drunk high whatevs. So I looked around, no traffic, and started to go when all of a sudden- on my right side- screaming down the hill- come two fucking idiot sonsabitches on skateboards… I slammed on my brakes- only about 5 feet into the intersection- and seriously came about 18 inches of taking those two dumb fucks out. The traffic director guy yelled ‘what are you doing!!??’ and when I drove off he pointed to his head and said ‘think safe!’ my witty retort? ‘you think safe, ASSHOLE!!!!!’

Now I’m all for skateboarding, and being cool and rebelling and thrill seeking and teen angst and hating your parents or whatever silly trip these guys are on but just don’t do it at 9:30pm when its dark out and at least have the guy come over to my window and say ‘hey, skaters are coming through here, hold up a bit would you?’ yes I would, gladly.

Highlight of Yesterdays Show

Phil and Friends with Trey Anastasio playing Viola Lee Blues:

The judge decreed it, the clerk he wrote it
The clerk he wrote it down indeed-e
The judge decreed it, the clerk he wrote it down
If you miss jail sentence, you'll be Nashville bound

Some got six months, some got one solid
Some got one solid year, indeed-e
Some got six months, some got one solid year
But me and my buddy, we got lifetime here

I wrote a letter, mailed it in the
Mailed it in the air, indeed-e
I wrote a letter, mailed it in the air
You may know my brother, I've got a friend somewhere

Joan Osborne sounded (and looked) great. Other than that, the show was only so-so...and wet, very wet

& Friends

Off to see Phil & Friends (fet. Joan Osborne) Mike & Trey, and The Duo tonight at the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds. I’m really excited to see Phil, I saw him a few years back at Memorial Auditorium and it was so much more vibrant and fresh and good then I ever saw the Dead play, with or without Jerry. And say what you will about ‘What if God Was One of Us?’ Joan Osborne has a great voice and I bet she can belt some Jerry. The Duo I’m kinda ehhh about. They are similar to Medeski, Martin and Wood but not as good- I saw them at Nectars and was disappointed. Not really sure how I feel about seeing Trey and Mike. So many of my teenage years were spent listening to Phish and seeing shows, and by the end I was a little sick of them (and the fans) and swore never to see Trey solo…but anyway, regardless of how creepy or lame or weird they are, I still think Trey and Mike are pretty good musicians. Although I do blame Mike for most of Radio Beans recent problems, and Ben tells me Mike and his friends have a hell of a time deciding between a soy or yogurt base for their Muddy Waters mango smoothies.

Frank and Marnie are coming and its sure to be a blast…

Peace, man- like dig it
