Mars Lights, Sleepover, and solo shows

So much music happens when class is off…

  • Mars Lights plays Monday, 6 June, at the Riot Room in KC.  I continue to work on mixes – re-amping bass, panning, EQing and compressing drums – and hope to have 2-4 done for the show to give you.
  • I play solo Wednesday, 8 June, at St. Peter’s UCC, $10 for dinner and music (PDF flyer here).  It’s a fundraiser for Jill, who is traveling to Florida for the UCC’s national synod meeting.  If you have song requests, put them in the comments.
  • The Sleepover demo’d 4 new songs last weekend in Lincoln.  We’re recording the EP August 6-7 at ARC in Omaha.  I practiced drums a hundred times to Cory’s acoustic demos, and yet when it all comes together and gets mixed, it’s like hearing them for the first time.  Pretty weird and exciting.
  • The Sleepover is playing:
    • Sunday, 3 July, at Duffy’s in Lincoln, NE
    • Saturday, 13 August, in Lincoln, NE
    • Thursday, 25 August, at The Slowdown in Omaha, NE (cancelled)
    • The May 20/21 shows are canceled
  • I was going to write a massive new MR|Review, but my feelings about “Helplessness Blues” are still changing.

  1. Details on Jill’s party from her FB invitation:

    Sing-fully Delicious! A fundraiser for Jill’s trip to Synod
    Time : Wednesday, June 8 · 6:30pm – 9:00pm
    Location: St. Peter’s UCC, 700 E 110th St, Kansas City, Missouri

    Hi! I’m a delegate for UCC General Synod in Tampa this summer. I understand this to be a giant responsibility. I also understand it’s not cheap to go. That seemed like a good reason to have a party.

    Join me at St Peter’s UCC on June 8th for dinner/dessert/snacks, musical performances, raffle drawings, and a silent auction. Did I mention dinner? Good.

    $10 minimum donation gets you dinner and performances from some of my most beautifully talented friends.

    Donations above and beyond get you raffle tickets. You can also duke it out via Silent Auction. There will be a variety of gifts of art and services and other fun things I’ve picked up along the way.

    Doors open at 6:30 to start auctioning
    Dinner begins at 7:00
    Performances begin at 7:30ish

    Reservations are not required, but are a good idea if you want to make sure you get dinner. Say “Yes, Attending!” on this Facebook invite, or you can call the church office at 816-942-1155 to save a spot.

    Proceeds benefit the Missouri Mid-South Conference of the UCC, to help pay them back for all the work they’ve done to get me to Synod.
