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

  Outside The Hit Shed, Durham NC Hi everyone, Getting ready to start back up again, after a year-plus out of action onstage. I have five shows opening up for  Tommy Prine (son of John) coming soon:     August 6 - Georgia Theater (Athens GA)     August 7 - Cat's Cradle Back Room (Chapel Hill NC)     August 8 - The Grey Eagle (Asheville NC)     September 3 - 118 North (Philadelphia PA)     September 4 - Rams Head (Annapolis MD) I'm also going to open for the Connells , whose new album Steadman's Wake is superb:     September 18 - The Eastern (Atlanta GA) You all probably already know about Our Back Pages  (by Peter Holsapple & Chris Stamey) being released on LP and CD via Omnivore Recordings, but if not, here's a link to the new video for "Today Could Be the Day." The songs on OBP are from the catalog of The dB's but given new and interesting treatments by Chris and me. I've been working in The Hit Shed, my home studio, over the months, writing a

CANCELLED - the new Bandcamp single by PETER HOLSAPPLE - released today, December 3, 2021

  Today, December 3, 2021, I have released a new single on Bandcamp entitled CANCELLED.  Just to be clear, the song is called CANCELLED. There was some question on social media whether the release had BEEN cancelled, which it had not, as it was just released.  Or dropped, if you can do that with ephemeral stuff like downloads. You can buy it here .  And you can watch my lyric video here . I hope you like it.  Remember I'm heading out on a house concert tour in March, so come to a show in your neck of the woods!

House concerts, anyone?

Hi everyone, I'd like to take this opportunity to write to you about performing a house concert in your area (maybe even in your own home). Last week, I was able to enlist the invaluable services of Tina Dunn to book a tour of house concerts in early March of 2022. Tina is encouraging potential house concert hosts for me to contact her either on her Facebook page or her email . Right now, I'm also trying to come up with some bonus incentives for house concert attendees. Beer coozies are probably out, but possibly handwritten copies of my lyrics? My penmanship is still fairly excellent. I'm also going to put together a 'house concert special' CD for these show that will 'represent' the format I play in, AND you can play it in your car CD player on the way home! My plan is to play out as much as I can, as many places as I can for as long as I can and as long as there are people who want to hear me. Thanks again for staying interested in my music
