Couple of Quick Things...

Julie Slick with the Adrian Belew Power Trio at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia last month

Hey hey, Happy Labor Day Weekend...

A few quick notes and then I'll let you all go back to bed.

First, when I posted the Adrian Belew article from Pollstar yesterday, I had no idea it was the headlines! I found it via Google, which just took me to the article itself. But yep, The Belew Tour made the front page, in between an article about the Rolling Stones and Farm Aid! So like, this means something major, you know? I'm posting the correct link right here -- see for yourself!

Second, I see it's listed in a couple of places that the trio is performing at the Santa Fe Brew Co. in Phoenix on November 4 -- that should actually be Santa Fe Brew Co. in Santa Fe, New Mexico (and I know I have a reader from Richard...mark that date on your calendar or...or...I'll put a curse on you)

Third, and this is so totally cool, on the November 10 date in Saratoga, CA and the November 14 date in Eugene, OR, Adrian, Julie, and Eric will be joined by The California Guitar Trio. If I wasn't eating my heart out before, I'm pretty much devouring it now.

Fourth, I have it on good authority that my friend, brilliant author Kat Denza, has landed an agent at Trident Media Group. Take a look at their list of clients to see just how huge this is...and it couldn't happen to a sweeter, more deserving person.

Finally, because I added the link later in yesterday's post and many of you might not have seen it, please go check out Susan Henderson's beautiful new website. Sue is one of the most generous, talented people I know and visiting her site daily is a must.

Both Kat and Sue are tireless in their promotion and nurturing of fellow writers and I'm thrilled to be even a little part of their respective worlds.

Okay, I think that covers it for today but if not, I'll be back...

Robin, I just woke up to see your rockin' news about the November 4th gig at the Santa Fe Brewing Company! Here's the link:

I have circled it on my calendar! Do you think they'll let me bring my camera(s)?

It's going to be on the Saturday before my birthday, so you know where I'll be celebrating this year! All the *excitement* you've generated about the Adrian Belew Power Trio in your blog must be rubbing off on me--I can't freaking wait! And this month, for my girlfriend's birthday, we're going to see Lou Reed at the Santa Fe Opera--what a great year we're having!

Something you might not know: at 7,000 feet altitude (higher than Denver), the thin air in Santa Fe makes alcohol twice as potent, so the crowd should be very happy indeed. And the band should be aware of the need to drink extra water to help with the altitude adjustment.

Wow! I am amped!

Aw, that's sweet. And you're not just a little part of my world. You're entirely necessary to my sanity.

Kat, I'm so happy for you! And lucky Trident!

Saratoga Ca? Are you coming? That is seriously about 20 minutes from where I recently please tell me when it's happening!

Richard, yep, you can definitely bring your camera -- how do you think I'm able to provide these great pics every day? Fans send them to me; I find them on the web; a lot I took myself.

Aw, Sue...likewise...and with whom else would I be able to share my fabulous Neil Gaiman photo collection?

Jordan, I want to make that concert like you wouldn't believe but the west coast may be Gary's turn since I did a lot of the east coast and Florida shows last month. But then again, he did Europe with them, so that's kind of unfair, isn't it? And err, there's that unspoken third factor...J&E may want us both to stay home, which would be totally cruel but alas understandable.

So we'll see.
