spring in January

Hello from Northern California, where I’ve been camped since mid-December or so. I swear I didn’t orchestrate this as an escape from the East Coast winter; at any rate, the house here has its thermostat set to 58 degrees Fahrenheit, which gets my teeth chattering rather effectively. Late last night the power went out in [...]

crunching numbers (or, “better late than never”)

Life finally slowed down enough for me in September to sort through the mound of receipts, reports, bank statements and envelopes that comprise the Green Caravan tour paperwork.

too much living, no time to write

This tour was an experience like no other. So much work, so much fun. Learned a lot about the bigger world out there, both musically and environmentally/socially. Met some remarkable people, reconnected with others, played for some really outstanding audiences. I think I am also done with not having a tour manager. Marika, Dina and Alex [...]

everyone has an achilles heel

after weeks of fruitless experimentation, the band finally discovers the precise combination of three words that can break marika’s stoic exterior and send her into uncontrollable spasms of laughter on command: LET - HER - BE (said with generous carolina drawl). try it sometime.

it came from beyond…

after a fun show in moundridge KS, alex stumbled upon a crowd gathered around his cajon, examining it as if they had just found it at the bottom of a smoldering crater in a corn field. i think they were looking for the midgets inside making all that racket… shh, don’t scare them…

welcome to jade garden

in a remote stretch of kansas, the crew attempts (foolishly) to find a taste of the bay area… or at the very least, a taste of vegetables.

the view from ann arbor

hey guys, sitting backstage at the ark, finally have a chance to post our first food blog entry… we’ve managed to amass some culinary gems over the past week or two, as evidenced by these pics. the piece de resistance, of course, was our field trip to hooters (initiated by vienna and marika), where the girls [...]
