Another summer is almost over, but the temperatures are still high, on the campaign trail and on the streets of Charlotte. Trying to stay cool is easier said than done, right? Take the high road, friends.
I’ll be playing several shows in the next few weeks. On Saturday afternoon, I’ll be gladly lending a hand at the latest Stand Against HB2 show at the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte. There are a lot of great bands and performers who are all doing what they can in this ongoing fight for equality.
On Friday, October 7, I will be at Heyday Guitars, Winston-Salem’s hip new joint for laid-back, house party-type shows. They sell nothing but cool guitars and gear and it sounds great in there. I’ll be playing alongside Lemon Sparks that night.
On Sunday, October 9, I’ll be at the Steel String Brewery in Carrboro, with my old pal Sara Bell. She was once part of my band, and I did a stint with her cool band, Regina Hexaphone. We’ll play from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. that afternoon.
Ian Hunter is one of the great songwriters of the last 40 (!!!) years, but he keeps getting better and making smart rock records. On Friday, October 28, I’ll be supporting him and his Rant Band at the Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro. I’m pretty pleased about this and hope you’ll be able to come out and have fun with us.
Stay tuned for more music, and by all means, get out and vote in November. This world is spinning faster by the day; hang on, friends.
