hey everyone! it's friday. i'm slowly waking up today. i played a solo show last night at the scoot inn here in austin. i had a great time playing. i feel like i need to spend more time playing my own music. that's my mid-year resolution. it's june 1st. that's the january 1st of the summer. i should be having some people that i ran into at the show last night on the podcast soon. i'm not going to name names yet until they're actually done... i just don't want to jinx myself by speaking too soon. what are you doing this weekend?
my guests for episode 75 are jaylinn davidson and paul waclawsky from the boxing lesson. i talked to paul a little bit on one of the sxsw specials we did, but i saw they were going on a midwest/east coast tour to work their way up to toronto to play a showcase at nxne. do any of you go to that festival? sounds cool. anyway, i was glad that both jaylinn and paul came over because they have great energy together. almost like an old vaudville team that plays kick-ass, rockin', space jams. i really love the boxing lesson and i recommend that you see them while they're on this tour here is the link to their dates i really enjoyed my conversation with them. i hope you do too.

my guest for episode 62 is guitar player, lauren gurgiolo from okkervil river, the dead left and the dialtones. i had never met lauren until she came to my apartment yesterday for the interview. i had heard about her from a few of my friends and they say she's a bad ass and so did jessica when she booked her. of course, neal kassanoff from the dead left sang her praises when he was a guest on episode 49 of this podcast. anyway, i spent time listening to her and watching some stuff on youtube and i realized everyone was right. lauren gurgiolo is a bad ass! i was glad she was able to come by the apartment and talk to me, (even though i was feeling pretty shitty and exhausted) and we talked about growing up in dallas, discovering jazz and embarking on a musical journey that would bring her to austin and get even more into jazz, country and eventually, rock. she has her own band the she fronts called, the dialtones and they are about to embark on a gigantic musical journey of their own. you can see lauren play with the dead left on thursday, april 19th at 10pm at hotel vegas in austin, tx. i really enjoyed meeting and talking to lauren. i hope you do too!
