Aw, somebody just posted this picture from our Smith show in November and it made me happy ‘cause there’s so much love going on in it.
Maybe I’m getting amped up early for Valentine’s Day. Usually I’m not the biggest fan. In fact, I spent last Valentine’s Day playing a self proclaimed “Anti-Valentine’s Day” show at The Sidewalk Cafe. This involved: A) playing a set of basically every break up song I’ve ever written (this was easy because they’re kind of all break up songs) and B) telling LOTS of embarrassing, slightly bitter/completely unsolicited personal anecdotes about said break up songs to my friends, fans, and the few unsuspecting strangers that attended. That was obviously fun for me. I mean, everyone. Also, I like to think it simultaneously functioned as a distraction/bitter haven for people without valentines AND a Valentine’s Day Singles mixer. I’m not sure if it actually did though or if that’s just something I’d like to think.
Anyway, this year will be a MUCH more pro Valentine’s Day show though. Mostly because we’re opening at The Bell House so I’m going to be too nervous to be bitter. Anyway, if you’re in New York you should come. Tickets are a little pricier than usual ($15) because Melissa Ferrick is the headliner (woot!) but it’s a great venue with a cozy, sort of rustic (?) vibe that you wouldn’t expect to find in Brooklyn and it will be a good time.
