SHOWS BEFORE HEADING HOME

The tour with the Magnetic Fields was as wonderful as anticipated. Historic ornate theatres; acoustically engineered spaces that made my $300 pawn-shop guitar sound fit for philharmonic. For me, half hour sets!…all killer no filler. For them, 2 hour sets that I had the pleasure of enjoying each night. There are not many bands that bare such repetition. Also they seem to attract the same crowd world-wide; attractive, well dressed, well mannered, erudite, attentive lyrics appreciators. What more could I ask for? So since it’s finished I’ve been brought kicking and screaming back down to earth. I have to fend for myself again.

So I’ll be playing a few scattered shows in Europe before I return home.
