Upcoming: Saturday at Plush; April at Venice Cafe


I had a great time at SIU Carbondale last night - what a cool little city! Real nice folks, too; can't wait to go back and play again in C-Dale. Had a blast walking around the square, and we especially enjoyed ABC Liquor (drive-thrus, dudes) and Long Branch Cafe. We even met a music shop owner who knows our guitar technician extraordinaire, Dave Anderson! What're the odds?!

This Saturday (March 30) will be the big show we've been looking forward to for months: I'll be opening for Great Isaac (their singer/guitarist is Steve, my man-partner and T2 drummer). This will be their first show since the tragic loss of their drummer, Casey Kell last September. I've had the privilege of sitting in on a couple practices to hear their new songs, and HOLY SHIT. You should really come to the show, guys. Langen Neubacher & The Defeated County and The Union Electric will be playing as well; both are phenomenal STL bands. There's a $5 cover for the show, but all of it goes to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, so it's worth it. And if you haven't been to Plush (in mid-town STL), you're missing out on some delicious sweet chili sauce and the best little meatloaf cupcakes the Midwest has to offer.

Thursday, April 4 will be a great show, too: the monthly mash-up at Venice Cafe, of course! This time it's me (solo), Old Capital Square Dance Club (a misnomer, perhaps - a surprising lack of square dances, actually. Still awesome, though), and Lawrence & The Lion (my first time seeing them live - can't wait!).

You can find all of these fine STL bands I've mentioned on Facebook, by the way. And you should!

I'll post some C-dale photos for you folks - there's some good stuff. Speaking of Facebook, there's a post on the Suzie Cue FB page from C-dale re: sitting on Katy Perry's face. You should definitely go check that and the accompanying photo out.

Thanks for reading; stay in touch, folks!

The Times, They Are A-Changin'

Hey folks!

Hope you're all recovering just fine from St. Patrick's Day festivities. Some updates to the calendar:

-SHOW ADDED: Wed 3.20 Stag Nite at Blank Space w/ Gallo (CA). 9 pm, $5. I'll have the Terrible 2s with me!

-CANCELED: Open mics at Livery Company. So don't head down there hoping for a weekend open mic, 'cause there ain't one!

This Saturday (March 23) I'll be celebrating the beginning of Spring in true South City fashion--playing at a good ol' block party. Come see me at 4:30 pm at Halfway Haus for their 2nd birthday festivities. Cole Adams and Jen Norman will be playing too. Day-drinkin', anyone?

Next Tuesday (March 26) will be MY FIRST SHOW IN CARBONDALE, IL. Tell your friends! It's free and open to the public. 7-9 pm (2 sets) at the SIUC Student Center in the Roman Room. This is a solo performance.

The show of shows will be Saturday, March 30 at Plush (STL). Great Isaac is headlining their first show, back from a long hiatus, with a new drummer. I'll be opening up (solo), then Langen Neubacher & The Defeated County will take the stage, then The Union Electric and finally Great Isaac. $5 cover; all proceeds go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The monthly shows at Venice Cafe just keep getting better and better, too! They're the first Thursday of each month, and it's me and 2 other random STL bands/artists--often who have never played the venue before. April 4 will be myself (solo), Lawrence & The Lion, and Old Capital Square Dance Club. 9 pm; $3 cover; ages 21+.

Come say hi at a show! Sign up for the email list while you're here. Tell your friends about the music, buy an album, and most importantly: keep supporting independent artists!

Kittens & Unicorns,

March. All ready?!

Happy March!

A couple quick updates:

I've been added last-minute to open for Bible Belt Sinners at Livery Company (3211 Cherokee St; STL, MO) tonight (Saturday, March 2) at 9 pm. No cover, ages 21+. I'm excited to finally play with these fine folks, including their singer and my dear friend, fellow STL singer/singwriter Miss Molly Simms.

Don't forget about the free, all ages acoustic showcase I'm in along with Andy Hyland, Aliya Waldman, Hands & Feet, and several other fine STL acts. That's this Sunday (March 3) at Lemmons (5800 Gravois; STL) at 8 pm.

And the details for the SIU Carbondale show on March 26 are pretty sweet: the show is open to the public and is free to attend. I will be playing 2 sets, 7-9 pm. It will be in the Roman Room of the campus student center.

Several other places to see me this month - see my previous post or the 'shows' tab up top for more details on all that.
