is all that falls between dawn and dark, during these narrowing days of the year. Or so it seems. The light deprivation affects me more than I’d care to admit–and it’s partially why I’ve been so quiet over the last month or so. Sorry for the silence, but I guess if you know me at all, you know by now that I’m not just another 24/7/365 self-promoting shell of a man! (Not to say that such a thing can’t be done with integrity, ha ha.) Even though keeping it real, staying true to whatever you’re feeling at any given time, can seem like a detriment to one’s “success”, that, my friends, appears to be my default setting. Feeling better now–getting adjusted, I guess. The jogging regimen has been such a good thing; though working through my two miles in below 40 weather earlier today was a special feeling! I’ll get used to it, or I’ll just go to the Y.
Next week, I’ll be back on the road in trio formation, with Ron Eoff and Paul Griffith, playing FitzGerald’s in Berwyn, IL on Friday(11/21), in the front room adjacent to the SideBar, immediately following the John Hiatt show in the main club. And on Saturday(11/22) it’s Little Big Fest, brought to you by the Des Moines Music Coalition, at House of Bricks in beautiful Des Moines, IA. We’ll close out the night on Saturday, starting at 7:45pm.
Sponsorship Campaign: Only a couple of weeks left to get in on the sponsorship campaign; we’re closing it out at the end of this month. Thanks again, so much, to all of you who’ve become such an integral part of the new project–we’re very excited to share it with you, as soon as possible! Sponsors, stay tuned for updates on the exclusive sponsor page–we’ll be heading back into the studio very soon(tomorrow, actually) to finish the last little bit of recording, then we’ll mix it all and see what this wild bird is that we’ve conjured. Here’s the skinny: http://kg.kevingordon.net/2013-sponsorship-campaign/
If you prefer not to deal with PayPal, you can send a check or money order to: Kevin Gordon Music, P.O. Box 60493, Nashville TN 37206. Please include your email address so that we can confirm receipt of your sponsorship purchase in a timely manner, and keep you apprised of the progress of the project.
Hope to see you out there soon, friends! Safe travels and travails.
November blew in strong and cold around here last night–I got to save some of the Halloween candy for myself since the tricking and treating numbers were down–not that I’m happy about that! Anyway, I’m starting the month with an outdoor set this morning (41 degrees by 11am, maybe . . .) at the East Nashville Magnet Holiday Market. Lots of great music from 10am to 3pm. If you’re in the ‘hood, come on down. There’s warmth in numbers . . .
Next Friday, November 7 I’ll be playing the Family Wash here in the 37206, opening up for the great Mack Starks. I go on at about 8:30.
I’ll be back soon–gotta find my winter clothes for this gig today! Cheers, kg
I’m taking a short break from loading the landsled with guitars, amps, and other provisions, to tell you where I’m headed: Tomorrow, Friday Oct. 3, I’ll be at Ashland Coffee & Tea in beautiful Ashland, VA, a fantastic place to play a show, or see one. On Saturday Oct. 4 I’ll play another of my favorite […]
UPDATE(8:07 pm): Looks like it’s been fixed–but we’ll keep an eye on it. Just checking on the site, and noticed that the bandsintown plug-in is nowhere to be found, due to an upgrade to the latest version of WordPress. That means the tour schedule isn’t showing up anywhere it’s supposed to on this site. Argh […]
