Wow, February sure flew by, and is nearly over! I'm super-excited for the last gig of the month this Tuesday, Feb 26 at the Shanti in Soulard: Mic the People For the People, a charity open mic night, will be raising money for local non-profit Self-Sufficient St. Louis. My co-host happens to be the founder of SSSTL, who work on sustainable and urban farming projects in the area, as well as oversee the Dave Hagerty Community Garden, which happens to be next to one of our favorite venues in town, Off Broadway. It'll be 9pm to 1 am this Tuesday, ages 21+, and has a suggested cover of $3 (all of which goes to SSSTL & the community garden).

Doors at 7 pm; show at 8 (I'm opening, so come early and drink late!)
Dave and Steve (those lovely Terrible 2s of mine) are learning some new tunes in preparation for recording later this year. Steve's even been playing banjo as of late with me! This next album is already shaping up to be epic--an overused term, I know. Too bad! :)
There are some other irons in the fire, and I can't wait to let y'all know what they are! But not yet. So stay tuned...and stay warm, in the meantime.
