Hi Pittsburgh! 

Hey Boston. That was fun. Actually I should say Natick.

Let me try again.

Hey Natick (Massachusetts)
Last night was beyond fun.

It was beyun.

If you mathematically combined the words BEYOND and FUN together it makes a new explosion that we scientists like to call BEYUN.

Now? Now I’m in Pittsburgh. Just like that. Rust never sleeps I guess.

Hell yeah! I’m in Pittsburgh and I finally have a night off! Yippee!

Tomorrow on Monday Feb 8 we play The Pittsburgh Winery. I’ll be with Grant-Lee Phillips!

Happy Super Bowl to you.

I’m hanging with Franco Harris today
Wearing my favorite Northstars hockey toque.

Dan Hicks

Dan Hicks died today. This bums me out. All these great musicians keep leaving. Stupid cancer.

Man oh man. When I was in The Rugburns we got to open a few shows for him. I specifically remember one in Chicago at Schuba’s and another one in Solana Beach at The Belly Up.

I remember a few people saying to me that he could be difficult and that I shouldn’t even try to meet him. But you know me- I don’t listen to what people say. After his show in Chicago I practically jumped on him and said “I love you man! You’re so freaking talented. I loved how you rhymed asbestus with Festus!” I practically jumped on him like an untrained Labrador.

He smiled and was laughing and was really nice. I am so glad I met this man. He inspired me because he kept working. I love a hard working touring musician. Mad respect.

He was a legend. Under appreciated for sure. Great guitarist. Great wordsmith. Great singer. Great songwriter.

Rest in peace DH.

Hey look- now I’m in Massachusetts

Here I am in Boston with some other dudes signing my John Hancock on something really important.

This is a really big deal. I just landed here and I’m already doing something important.

Tonight I play in Natick Massachusetts at The Center For Arts in Natick.
My buddy Grant-Lee Phillips is also playing. It’s gonna be an archeological shindig. We will dig up old shins.
The show starts at 8.

Thanks for last night in NYC. That was a freaking blast.

Tonight I play NYC at @rockwoodmusichall with my pal @grantleephillips

#lemonteeth Magillicuddy is my name. I was meant to be put on the turnip truck after I was born but I fell outta the truck and bounced like a super ball way up high and landed in a lemon tree and was raised in the ditch of a lemon grove. The branches taught me to read and would pick me up and squeeze me. They were shocked when their squeezing failed to bring forth lemon juice. They thought it was lemon juice but it was really urine. They soon figured out that my pee was loaded with nitrates and it was a win win situation. I’m feeling happy that they helped me to become the man I am today. I ignore the furtive glances of judgmental strangers. I live for lemons. Lemons and bees and honey.

When life gives you lemons make lemonade and then go take a leak.

Thanks Toronto! 

Thanks formally for last night in Toronto. I don’t know why I’m thanking you formally. I’d formally like to thank you Toronto. A nice SOLD OUT show. That means Toronto is finally an emerging market that I’m bullish on for the upcoming fiscal year. Numbers and graphs are all pointing in an upward trajectory. Investors who were formally squeamish on Poltzian forecasts are now touting my stock and investment strategy as a viable alternative to other forms of energy. In other words nutso magutso is the new black.

Tonight’s show in Oakville is sold out. Please contact a ticket scalper.

Tomorrow night I reconnect with my musical cohort Grant-Lee Phillips for a show in Philadelphia. Actually Ardmore. The Ardmore Music Hall. Ard more? Or Ard less?

I say Ard facking more!

Let’s do this.

I’m in Toronto.

It’s like I was just in Albuquerque and this really nice girl handed me this crafty item she made. I love it. I can’t remember your name but I’m thanking you big time right here. I wanna always have this little gem sitting proudly at my merch table. Imagine the places it will travel to.

UPDATE! Jessica Schreiner made it. Thanks Jessica. 
Tonight just like that I’m in Toronto. I play The Dakota Tavern at 7pm. There aren’t many tickets left so act now or forever hold your hands on your ears so they lay flat.

Oh Canada! You are such a nice country. It’s good to be here.

Hey, last week when I was in Washington DC I was on a podcast with Grant-Lee Phillips. It’s called The Circus Life and you can hear it by visiting this little space on the Internet

It’s a beautiful day in Toronto. Wednesday Feb 3 I play a show in Oakville Ontario at The Moonshine.

Thursday Feb 4 I’m in Philly! The Ardmore Music Hall

Friday Feb 5 I’m in NyC at Rockwood Music Hall

Saturday Feb 6 I’m in Natick Mass at Center For The Arts in Natick. So I want all my Boston friends to come on out.

All of my tour dates are here


Thanks again for the crafty art!

See you tonight in Toronto at The Dakota.

New Mexico! I love you

Oh New Mexico! You’re so beautiful this morning. I took this pic on the drive down from Red River to Santa Fe. Thanks for the great times at The Red River Songwriters Festival. I had so much fun. What an energetic appreciative crowd. Tonight I play Santa Fe NM tonight at Jean Cocteau Cinema. Can’t wait! xoxo

San Diego Chargers

Honey? I WAS in love with you but I’ve recently met this rich chick in Los Angeles. She lives in Inglewood. So, I’ve decided to move in with her.

A few months later…..

Ummm honey? It’s me. Uh yeah, things aren’t really working out with the rich chick in L.A. I think I wanna move back in with you in our home in San Diego. Yeah- well to be honest, the chick in LA isn’t really that into me I guess. It’s kind of a long story and embarrassing.

So Whaddya think? Should we give it another go? Oh, I forgot to tell you that in a year she said she might have a bigger house and MAY want me to move back in with her. So I may leave you again next year but for now I want to stay here with you.

In the words of my dear friend Keith R. Wilson “Boy this is awkward.”

San Diego Super Chargers -San Diego CHARGERS!

Thanks Albuquerque. Now headed to Red River NM

Thanks to all the fine folks who came out to the show last night in Albuquerque New Mexico. It’s always fun hopping up in that stage and seeing what happens.

This one nice fella had me scribble on his guitar. We kinda look like brothers.

Yesterday I flew from Baltimore to ABQ. Got off the plane and rented a car and played a show.

Today I have a 5 hour drive to Red River New Mexico for The Red River Songwriters Festival. Should be beautiful up there.

Sunday I play The Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe New Mexico.

Then on Tuesday I play The Dakota in Toronto of all places. I think I’ll fly rather than walk.

Here’s a cool article previewing my upcoming show in Cleveland with Grant-Lee Phillips.
