Upcoming Show, Aug 29th, 2010, E. Lansing, MI

YEAH… never mind this. We are NOT playing this show anymore. Personal issues (i.e. divorce) have taken precedence and I have no time to practice…

Come check us out! The record is still for sale too, so pick up a copy at the show!

Record Release Recap

my stuff on the merch table!

whole band onstage

I just wanted to do a brief recap of the fun times we had on our three show stint around Michigan… Thanks to everyone who came out to our shows at Berkley Front, Elbow Room and (Scene) Metrospace! They all went well and were well attended. We even sold some records! There are some photo sets and a video on the Part Time Songs Facebook page. Most of the photos were taken by my wife. Thanks Doreen!

Here’s a video of us playing “Making Predictions” taken at the Elbow Room show:

Thanks to John Krohn for making these shows happen in the first place, and then secondly, making sure the ones in places we didn’t know that many people were well attended! We played to appreciative crowds all around, and I’m very happy to have been part of such a thing. Thanks to Dan, Robb, Angela and Chris for being an excellent band and good company, and thanks to Husband and Wife for rocking out at each of the shows we played.

The record will, of course, continue to be available for purchase through Lower Peninsula Records… we MAY decide to do a couple shows here and there in the future, if we can get everyone together. We’d have to find another lead guitar player, as John lives far away from us and it’s hard to get practice time in with him. But he did say he’d set up shows for us if I wanted them, so it’s always an option.

For now, it’s back to normal life for a bit, wherein I am not entirely self-promotional all the time. I’ll keep you alerted as to any new developments. My laptop died, so I may be out of the home recording for a little while till I can get a new HD and reinstall Windows XP, but keep checking in!


Me and the band are doing three record release shows around the fine state of Michigan in support of my vinyl EP, “How Does It Know?” (which, if you haven’t yet, you can preorder here). We are really hoping they’ll be ready and in our hands by showtime.

The Low Hello, 1.27.07, Elbow Room soundboard recording

Some more the Low Hello stuff from the archives — I found this soundboard recording and some photos from this show at the Elbow Room in Ypsi… I remember the night being really exciting and electric in some regard. The crowd was well drunk and we got a lot of positive feedback and shouts of enthusiasm from the audience. I may have been well drunk myself — proof of that is evident if you listen to the full recording and happen upon the way I inelegantly screw up Recess and have no idea how to recover, though the band tries to guide me in one direction or another. But the crowd was forgiving, and it turned out being one of the more memorable shows we did, to me at least. The rest of the songs sound pretty damn good, as well. I (purposely) left off an individual MP3 version of Recess (which is the 4th song in the set) due to it not being good AT ALL (and to make you dig if you really want to hear me embarrass myself).

I found some old the Low Hello videos

I’m trying to make some space on my hard drive and going through old stuff, and I found these two videos from the Low Hello that weren’t on YouTube already for some reason. I like these songs.
