I dish on his new record at Talkhouse:

I just took on another outdoor summer band show, Square Roots in Chicago, where I'll be sharing top-dog status and burdens with my old friends the Mekons and Urge Overkill: 

No Hideout tonight.

I sing the anthem at the ballpark this Friday night. It's the White Sox versus another team from somewhere else!

Leaving St. Louis, driving up to Chicago, for a relaxed week of solitude, basketball, roller coasters, Charlie Parker heads, and national anthem warm-ups.

weekend frivolities

By Robbie on June 25, 2015

I won't be at the Hideout this Monday, but I will be in a bunch of almost equally eerie places -- Effingham IL, Springfield MO, and St Louis. More details on the tour page.

Playing alongside me will be Aaron Till, Dave Martin, and Shad Cobb, yet one more collection of people that's new under the sun. It's my fifth such date this month! I'm getting to be a real slut when it comes to personnel. But since we're all from the roughly same place musically, and since two of the three guys have played with me plenty, I doubt you'll know we're a little unfamiliar to one another. (The one time I played with both Aaron and Shad -- Chris Scruggs and Noam Pikelny were also on hand -- was at the Station Inn and was one of the most high-sailing gigs I've played in the last 5 years.) Hope to see you at the club! xo, RF

house show alert, June 28

By Robbie on June 14, 2015

Well it's been a bad year for last-minute cancellations. This makes two so far, and this time it was a big festival in Arkansas, with weighty names such as Sara Evans. Is it something I said? "God isn't real"? 

So: if you live in the general area of our fair land between Springfield MO and St Louis, have experience hosting house shows, and want to try me, please drop a line. Examples of towns: Carthage, Kansas City, Cape Girardeau, Jefferson City, Columbia, Rolla. You'll get a dynamic acoustic country quartet that will leave your neighbors agog.
