on the road again

I’m going to be gone for a couple of days playing a handful of shows with my band Cunt Sparrer and the incomparable Kevin Seconds of 7 Seconds.  I’ll be back on Wednesday.  If you’re in any of the following locations you should come out!

Tonight (Sunday 11/13) at the Bunkhouse in Las Vegas:

Tomorrow night (Monday 11/14) at the Yucca Tap Room in Tempe, AZ:

Tuesday night (Tuesday 11/15) at the Slidebar in Fullerton, CA:

The shows are going to be a rowdy good time and Jennie and I have matching stage outfits that we love to wear, so come out if you can!  I’ll be back to posting when I get home on Wednesday.

I had such a killer time at Seattle Soundfest!  Four nights of playing shows, drinking beers, seeing bands, meeting amazing new people, and nonstop partying!  I rented a house with my band (Cunt Sparrer) and my friends in Bad Cop/Bad Cop, and it was definitely a weekend to remember.

Cunt Sparrer played at the Funhouse on Friday night (the following four photos by Shawn with the Sunbreak):



The Cro-Mags fucking killed it.  One of the most brutal shows I’ve ever seen in my life.

It will take me several days to recover.

You guys want to know the best way to kick off the summer and get in some relaxation after a hectic month of touring?  I’m pretty sure it’s two days in Palm Springs.  I met up with a handful of my girlfriends (including Hillary of Thoreau’s Daughter) at the Ace Hotel on Friday night for a weekend of drinking, tanning, and relaxing.

The Ace Hotel is pretty aggressively hip, which can give pause to a decidedly non-hipstery-type like me, but it’s cool and unpretentious and the grounds are absolutely incredible.  Killer pool, gorgeously appointed rooms, really accommodating staff, sick midcentury modern-style architecture…heaven, basically.

Dressing for Palm Springs is easy: flip-flops, shorts, loose tops and big sunglasses. Honestly, for 90% of the time I was there this was the extent of my “outfit”:

My roommate Farron stepped it up a bit when we went out for dinner.  I love her loose, gauzy see-through skirt and punches of chartreuse:


Hillary gave us all friendship bracelets to commemorate our weekend. We’ll be wearing them all summer long. Feels kinda ’90s and I like it!  Hillary also wrote about our weekend over at her blog, Thoreau’s Daughter.


This is how I know I must be home again…sob sob.

My next jaunt out of town isn’t until August, which is both a drag and a relief.  Looking forward to spending this weekend at home in Long Beach (I haven’t had a weekend at home since before I left for Las Vegas!), daydreaming about all the places I want to go next.  You guys up to anything good this summer?
