Day Two, New Week, Another Dimension



The weekend in Atlanta was incomparable. Two nights at 529 with Magnapop and Elf Power. Those are two remarkable bands; their longevity and their unfailingly high musical quality are enviable. Friends, fine food, some commerce, but mostly music and more music. Thank you to my hosts, the Owings family, who graciously opened their home and lives to me for a couple of nights.

The single's out now; I got back from Old Durham Station where I put many of y'all's singles into the US Postal Service's hands around noon yesterday. More new ones are coming in, and I'll do my level best to get orders turned around and out in a timely fashion. 

Let's see...here's my updated list o' gigs, solo unless otherwise noted:

I've reactivated my ReverbNation page, although I'm still stumbling through construction there like a giant stumbling thing. Nevertheless, I was greeted with the news that I am ranked at #2 in the Durham Rock charts there. So go figure. You are welcome to join me there through this here and watch the transformation taking place if you have that kind of time on your hands. Show dates will be there, too.

Thanks for all the support with this little record, friends. 

(I just love that cartoon, that's the only reason it's there.)

Revilo gives good cartoon! And big congrats on the single hitting #2! Pummelling #2 into a stupor, I daresay! And then #2 stumbles,
falls, and there, gleaming like a gleaming thing, will be NUMBER ONE. Woohoo!

I'm so sorry that I'll be missing you in NYC. I last saw you and Chris at City Winery about 4 years ago. (I just got your 7" "Don't mention the war" down in Miami Beach today, where I'll be until the end of April. THANKS!!!!)

  Outside The Hit Shed, Durham NC Hi everyone, Getting ready to start back up again, after a year-plus out of action onstage.

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
