Luego at Broad Street Cafe, Saturday Jan. 24

I'm such a slack m_____f_____ about letting people know upcoming gigs, so let me try to prevent that from happening.

Luego, the fine band with whom I play these days, is playing a gig in anticipation of its album release. The show is at 10pm Saturday night at the Broad Street Cafe in Durham NC. That doesn't help you folks who live in far-flung places throughout the world, I realize, but there HAVE to be some of my readers who are in driving distance.

I'm truly enjoying playing with this young and talented batch of fellows. The leader, Patrick Phelan, is a swaggering Texan transplant who is a fantastic frontman and bandleader. His songs are a varied bunch, and they're all powerful and intriguing. The rhythm section of Rob DiMauro and Jeff Crawford, and the lead guitar stylings of Nick Jaeger complement Patrick's songwriting. Jeff's been producing the album with Patrick, and I think it's turning out really nicely.

Here's what the folks at the Independent had to say: Re-introducing Luego.

So if you're in the area and would like to hear Luego, come down Saturday night. We'd love to see you there.

ahhhh how I wish I could be there!! The band sounds excellent and the live videos I've seen are great! Have a great show

We're all looking forward to the REM tribute (I think Dad's buying tix within the next few days)

Hope all is well!

PS-been busy writing and demo-ing a crap load of new stuff...the demos are turning out great! I invested in ProTools and I couldn't be happier with it
