bluegrass situation

By Robbie on May 29, 2015

You can see a well-recorded clip from a trio performance of "Georgia Hard" from last year's Pickathon festival in Oregon on the Bluegrass Situation website:

In the copy accompanying the footage I'm called "venerable" (which is probably worse than anything I've called Ryan Adams) and in the still shot, the three of us, Don Stiernberg and Chris Scruggs and I, look like some of the most unsavory life forms imaginable. I look like a transgendered copy of my mom. Don looks like he's orgasming. Chris is looking grimly into space. You shoulda been there!

this monday at the hideout

By Robbie on May 28, 2015

If you like a crowded stage emitting many decibels, this is for you. This Monday I'll ring in the summer with a bunch of summer-themed pop covers (Sheryl Crow, hello! Coconut Records, high five! Astrud Gilberto, 'sup? Marvin Gaye, duck!) accompanied by Scott Stevenson, Scott Ligon, Alex Hall, and Liam Davis. They'll all be singing, I'll be singing, and singing more than probably anyone will be the high priestess of modern-day Second City, the divine Tawny Newsome. Come drink and dance with all of us.

I Heart Roger Miller. Me and three other weirdoes play 18 great tunes from Roger's catalog, leaving 35 other great tunes from his catalog unplayed. Emotional forecast: jittery highs, soul-smothering lows.

this monday at the hideout

By Robbie on May 8, 2015

To replace Wendy Lewis, who was suddenly afflicted with a busted car, a few friends -- Gerald Dowd, Steve Dawson, and John Abbey -- are coming down Monday to do some music with me. Not sure what it'll be but sure it'll be something!

st. paul, rockford, beyond

By Robbie on May 7, 2015

I just posted a slew of dates, from Friday into late June, on the tour page. I'll be in St. Paul this weekend with Don Stiernberg, then on to Rockford, and there are tickets available for each of those. The first several of my summer shows with Redd Volkaert are also listed; and you can see some upcoming Hideout programming.

Speaking of which, Wendy Lewis up in Minnesota has had some car trouble, so, sadly, no Wendy this Monday. I'm nosing around for something else to do and will post what it is any moment now...

On Tuesday I snuck away from home and saw Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead, the new documentary focusing on the 1970s-era National Lampoon. I expected it not to be an altogether satisfying telling, and it wasn't. More on that later.
