Hi everyone! I am beyond excited to announce that this Saturday (April 14th) I will be playing my first full band show in roughly a million years. This is a gang of such incredible talent that it's downright embarrassing.
And it's the perfect excuse to spend some quality time at the heroic Sidewalk Cafe!
Here's how the night works out:
8:57- YOU arrive, trembling with anticipation
9 PM- The insanely gifted Casey Holford
10 PM- The tremendously grateful Phoebe Kreutz
11 PM- The ridiculously thrilling Sam Grossman
Midnight- YOU stagger back onto the street, emotionally drained but suddenly inspired.
So you can see that I am the meat in a fantastic sandwich. Plus, those guys are IN my band! Not to mention Christy Davis, Andrew Hoepfner and the lovely Matt Colbourn.
You won't want to miss a second.
Got kids? No? Well, grab a bag of candy and lure someone else's kids over to the Sidewalk Cafe this Sunday at 5 for a rare "child-friendly" Phoebe Kreutz show.
I'm not 100% sure what this will mean. I'm guessing me playing whichever of my songs have no curse words. (Or me forgetting that certain songs have curse words and then realizing they do mid-song and panicking and making up "non-curse-words that might be offensive in some other way" .) Should be fun!
A night of wonderment awaits you at the Sidewalk Cafe. I'll be singing songs at 10:15 but you'll want to catch the whole evening!

The epic of the Gilgamesh is the first story ever written down by human beings and it is a doozy. Sex, power, violence, love, guilt, and death- it's all there. But now the classic tale is getting a lively, irreverent makeover in this high-spirited musical romp complete with cardboard sets, a self-orchestrated cast and toe-tapping joke folk hits!
With influences ranging from P.G. Wodehouse and Jonathan Richman to DMX, "Go! Go! Gilgamesh!" provides a clear way in to a sometimes-intimidating text. It’s tuneful. It’s irreverent. It’s got a magic bull, a sneaky prostitute, and a conga line. And all of this surrounds the genuine emotional core of our shared mortality. Yay!
The super sexy cast includes Paris Ellsworth, Susan Hwang, Phoebe Kreutz, Ezra Lowrey, Kim Onah, Michael Perrie Jr. and Yael Rizowy.
This is a lovely, private event in beautiful, scenic Jersey City! And anyone can attend! People will tell stories "Moth-style" and I'll sing songs that "complement" them. There are drinks and snacks and everyone has a swell time.
This time the stories are by NPR's Ophira Eisenberg & The New Yorker's Adam Wade and The Liar Show's Andy Christie.
