Photos for my Ego

Ever since I started performing with Diana Van de Kamp, my action photo collection has drastically improved. I also picked up a nice impromptu, unshaven headshot and found an old one I’ve never used. Why not make a super vain post in the guise of thanking these kind people for their pictures?10300161_10100764903599002_2997867654889613149_n

The After Disaster Christmas (Live at the Brea Improv)

I’ve beeafterxmas2n asked to play some of my goofy-ass songs to open for alive podcast, but not just any live podcast. It is the After Disaster (formerly The Loveline After Disaster, but they were stripped of the association for their avant garde ways), which I became aware of because they often record their outrageous podcasts in the studio where I work (The Loveline Studio). Calling it “outrageous” is no hyperbole either as there are several reasons to be outraged with the (often hilarious) content of this podcast. While on-air, the three hosts (Mike Carano, Anderson Cowan and Tyler White) have nearly killed themselves, each other and one of their wives in the name of comedy (and they weren’t even angry).

It’s a big deal for me to A) Be playing a big-ass major club like the Brea Improv (Hello, Improvs, it’s been a while) and B) Be opening for the most unique and compelling tragi-comedic, under-planned, excessively db’d, inside-joke-plagued, mall-grabbing, weapon-wielding, gift-craving, not-really-racist, anger/anxiety/callback-riddled, very famous podcast sagas that shouldn’t have existed in the first place, but luckily does.

If you don’t know it, you should look it up at www.theafterdisaster.com. All the live show info can be found there and on the flier to the left, which I assume was made by one Scott Clark.

So, what I’m trying to say is this; it would be rad if you came. Also, if you haven’t caught me on stage this year, this set will be all new songs (with a reworked oldie or two).
