New & Upcoming Work
The Unswept are playing International Pop Overthrow at 5:00 on April 23, at the Montrose Saloon. Our album Fast Casual has somehow been out for almost a year! What even is time?
I'm playing bass for Brad Bru & the Crowd Goes Wild on April 25 at Golden Dagger.
The Baguettes are returning to the live-action game of deceit The Unbelievable Truth on May 6 at a Logan Square location TBD.
The Baguettes are back in the studio to record Posthistoric and a twangier companion EP, Backroads.
I continue to work on the Arctic writing project, which at this point has me three years into studying Norwegian for the sake of translating a historic journal. Two of the poems were supposed to be in Literal Latté (like several lit mags, it seems to have gone on indefinite hiatus) and some of the photos appear on the blog.
I directed music for the Plagiarists' production of Valhalla: The Progeny of Loki, which had a COVID-abbreviated run in January–February 2023.
My illustrations appear in Randy Diderrich's children's book, The ABCs of Rock (Nico 11 Publishing).
Some of my paintings appeared in Wild Roof Journal.
Combining pandemic lockdown with an already-monastic arts residency is...quite something. I wrote a lot of songs about it.
The Baguettes released Highway Gothic in March 2019. The first single and video (shot at The Den) are live. Reverb Raccoon made us their Song of the Day and gave us a really nice write-up.
In September 2019, ButterBean Records released a remastered, expanded Everything I Think I Know Is Wrong (making "a splendid album...even better," according to I Don't Hear a Single).
