They will be joined by cartoonists Kaia Chessen and Carl Nelson, who will be engaging in daring feats of stunt drawing throughout the evening’s performances. Grab your honey and your dancing shoes and come out to enjoy a free and festive evening of violins, guitars, harmony, and possibly a May pole or distress call or two.

Show: April 23 at Cafe Racer – Old Bottle Black and Landlord’s Daughter

If you can’t make our show at Slim’s Last Chance on May 7th, you’ve got another chance to catch us two weeks prior at Cafe Racer – a killer little venue just south of Ravenna in the U-District.

We’re going to play with Landlord’s Daughter – check them out Facebook, I’m sure you’ll dig them.

See you there!

Show: May 7th @ Slim’s Last Chance in SoDo with Guns of Nevada

Yes, we’re playing at Seattle’s slice of Texas: Slim’s Last Chance with a killer band called Guns of Nevada. Check them out on MySpace. They’ve got a great southern rock sound.

We’ve been looking forward to playing this bar for some time. They’ve got killer chili, beer, booze and a great staff. Best of all, they have a flat bed truck as the stage for the music in the back patio. Rock on!

We’re looking forward to seeing you all there. Click here to sign up for the event on Facebook

Nov 12th Show at the Victory Lounge

This was our first show back out in a venue since April 30, and we decided it might be fun to play at the Vic again. Turned out to be a great night. Stephen Nielson opened the show with a set of his new tunes and a few of his older tunes as well. I was happy to hear the St. Petersburg tune tossed in there with a little dedication to yours truly. (I told him just before the set that it is where I grew up.)

We, Old Bottle Black, took the second slot. We had a few technical issues with the sound. I guess the audio guy couldn’t figure out whether it was my mic or the banjo mic that was feeding back, so he kept raising and lowering my vocals to the point where I was screaming just to be heard. Geoff and I were really clicking, I think, cuz we were falling into step the entire way… even after I decided it was a good idea to jump atop a monitor – only to come tumbling down immediately after. Didn’t miss a note though! I jumped right up and got back in it. Adam’s battery was spot on and Steve Yasukawa’s pluckin’, harpin’ and pickin’ were tits. All in all, we had a pretty darned good come-back, all things considering.

Then came We Say Bang! Man, that was humbling. When we first saw them, they opened for us at the very same venue. I can only say that in the last 8 months, they’ve just grown in skill by leaps and bounds. Amazing. They were truly excellent. It was an honor to play with these bad ass rock and rollers.
