Sweet home! Back from a quick trip to LA in support of Julia Stone’s new record, “By the Horns”. The gig was in a Masonic Lodge on the grounds of Hollywood’s Forever Cemetery. Really great show! Julia and the band(myself, Brian Kantor, Hannah Cohen, Thomas Bartlett and Sam Amidon) rocked it!
Other highlights from this trip:
Playing drums (and synth) w/ Hannah Cohen and Sam Amidon… and Bill Frisell(?, really) at The Virgil!
Spending a day with pal and musical guru (and personal hero) Geoff Mann and family. Got to hear some of Geoff’s amazing recent compositions as well as eat homemade banana cream pie and mexican food, visit the Klowden Mann art Gallery, jam with Brian Kantor and Geoff, go record shopping, play basketball and have lots of goofy time with Geoff’s kids.
Back in Brooklyn and off to rehearse with Thieving Irons - special new album, “Behold this Dreamer!” out this week!
