As we hit June, many things continue to be in motion. I’ll be playing the Monterey American Music Festival solo on June 23rd, and several Camper Van Beethoven dates are happening over the summer, including shows at the Troubadour and Outside Lands (which I will add to the shows as soon as I get confirmation of which date we’re playing. We’ve had many good shows of late, including a great run in the UK and Europe. Camper is continuing to move forward to give you a quick followup to La Costa Perdida… it’s more than halfway there at this point.
Some of you may have noticed this on facebook, a little movie about David Lowery and the bands I’ve spent 30 years playing in. You may want to contribute some funds while you have time.
I’ll be announcing a funding drive for the new Monks of Doom album shortly, once the funding for Get Off This has been sorted out. We’d like to finish that by the end of the year.
I have some iPad apps in development for my solo work as well, as I continue to experiment with ways to bring you new music without filling my garage up with physical product. That said, there are about 50 CDs and 100 vinyl copies of “I Was A Nightmare But I’m Not Going To Go There” left. Feel free to order them, once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Lastly, you may have noticed that the Camper bass player for some dates was not me, but my good friend David Immerglück. He’s been doing a great job, and I really appreciate him stepping in. I hate missing shows, and hopefully won’t be missing any more this year.
And enough of that. See you out there somewhere soon.
