Etown! Europa! Europa!
Succulent BOC news bits, hot off the grill:
We headed to Boulder last month to play Etown - more than ever a force for cool and a force for good in the world .. We shared the night with Jackie Greene and his band .. Those guys just killed it, and we had a fine time hanging out with them. Below is our all play version of Ophelia- you can listen to the whole broadcast HERE.
The E tones supported us on our set, and as always, made it feel like we'd been gigging with them for years. Such talented pros, those fellas.. As for Nick and Helen - they make the whole thing look easy, and it's so far from easy .. Very grateful to be included in that family for a night.
We are now headed to Europe. Our daughter, Ida, will sleep peacefully on the plane and generally conduct herself as a model citizen for all 9 hours of the trip. There is simply no way that anything else could happen. Isn't that a relief?
We are doing a full Netherlands/Belgium tour, and then making quick hits to Belfast and London. A few of these shows are already sold out - advance tickets are highly recommended. UK, Ireland, Scotland don't worry, we plan for a proper tour of your realms in Jan 2017.
More on that soon.
Love to you - you are all handsome and very smart. See you soon...
