hello my friends!!!! i hope you are all doing/feeling/being well. i am. i've had a great week. the moontower comedy festival has been in town and i've gone the last two nights. i've seen a lot of comedy, made some friends and hung out with other friends. they have an after show party that's also a lot of fun. i saw so much comedy. it was a lot of fun, but i am looking forward to getting back to playing some shows. speaking of which, i have a solo acoustic show on monday, may 6th at 7pm at the saxon pub in austin, tx. if you're here, come by. i'll be opening for bob schneider.
my guests for episode 166, is the prohibition-era jazz band, jitterbug vipers. i don't always have whole bands on the show, but to get the idea of this wonderfully talented group of kooks, you need them to be together. luckily, we were able to pull it off. it was early, i was hungover, but we got to business... masumi and sarah sharp meeting at the berklee college of music, slim and francie's 15 marriages to each other, slim's hit and run. their new album featuring mostly songs written by sarah, their show on may 4th at the one world theater and much, much more. we laugh a lot on this one. these are some crazy, talented folks and i really enjoyed my conversation with them. i hope you do too.
