November’s a big month for me as I have three events (plus the usual Mental Marginalia) coming up with some good people and I’d love to see you out at some or all of them…

First up:
Tuesday, 11/13, 7:30pm
@ Bear
12-14 31st Avenue, Long Island City
An admixture of poetry and fiction paired with liquors and foodstuffs. A salon in which poor taste will mingle with the delectable; ears and mouths stuffed and stumbling.

The Readers:
Beth Amodeo
Alex Crowley
Keara Driscoll
Robert Tumas

There will be $5 Dirty Martinis, bar snacks on a menu specially designed by Chef Natasha Pogrebinsky, and a happy hour following the evening’s proceedings.

Saturday, 11/17, 7pm (?)
@ Brooklyn Fire Proof
119 Ingraham Street (at Porter Ave.) Brooklyn (Morgan L)

Join curators Eric Nelson and Mike Lala at Brooklyn Fire Proof for Fireside Follies’ second event this season, featuring:

Dorothea Lasky (Thunderbird)
Macgregor Card (Duties of an English Foreign Secretary)
Courtney Maum (Big Things in Small Places)
Alex Crowley
Olivia Kate Cerrone

This event is FREE and open to the public.

Tuesday, 11/27, 8pm
@ The West Brooklyn
379 Union Ave., Brooklyn (L/G to Lorimer & Metropolitan)

Mark Gurarie & I host, these cats read:
Tom Oristaglio
Fred McKindra
Alex Norelli
+1 tba

and last, but not least:
Thursday, 11/29, 8pm
@ Legion Bar
790 Metropolitan Ave. Brooklyn (Graham L)

We’ve got a new bassist & we haven’t played since February. Per usual, come listen b/c who knows when we’ll play next!

After nine months of no shows at all, my band [WARMTH] returns to play as a duo. We’ll be opening up for our friends/space-mates, ICONCHASM, on their debut show. This should be real rad, it’s cheap and at Death by Audio, which is always a great place to both see and play shows.

This Sunday: WARMTH / BUILDINGS / WoNA / FotE

This Sunday night, come out to Legion Bar and catch my band, WARMTH, tear it up for the first time this year. We haven’t played in what feels like a very long year, but our friends from Minneapolis, BUILDINGS, are on tour and coming through town. They are definitely worth checking out and I’m personally excited to play with them again. Opening the show will be the dual duo attack of WAR of NORTHERN AGGRESSION and FEAST of the EPIPHANY.

New WARMTH Tracks Posted!

Not terribly long ago my band, Warmth, recorded some demo tracks for an album we’re hoping to record later this year. They’re up now on our new Bandcamp site ( so go check them out. Hope you dig ’em if you check ’em out. If you’re not feelin’ it, that doesn’t mean you’re a bad person, it just means you have questionable taste.

I’m also in the process of putting together some summer shows and will update any progress here. One of said shows will feature our friends Buildings from Minneapolis. We played with them last summer and they’re coming to NYC in early June. Definitely worth your time, particularly if you’re into The Jesus Lizard or Hammerhead (or even a dirtier version of Braid!).
