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!

"Back yet again!" says the Infrequent Blogger

(photo by Bill Reaves) I am inevitably confounded by the amount of time I let go by between posts here. My last post was February of last year (2022). You may ask yourself "what was he doing that prevented him from posting again?" and the answer is, of course, "nothing really." I forget I have this place to write my thoughts down for a waiting world to read, which would be helpful for me as well to empty my chaotic mind and make a little space. But since you're here and may be wondering what I'm up to, I'll try to fill you in. Mostly, I'm tending to home stuff. I do laundry and pick up groceries and a lot of domestic engineering that involves a broom, dustpan and mop. And sometimes that sweet shower glass cleaner recipe I found a while ago that makes it so you can see out again. We have a new junior at UNC-W and a new junior at Riverside High School, and they've been navigating their lives outside the nest. The high schooler just got her drivers&
