I’m back, baby! Sorry for the silence around here as I’m still reeling from an amazing first-year experience followed up by a week off at home hanging family and staying disconnected from for a while. It felt good, but I missed you sad sacks and I certainly feel like I miss these guys: and Mike Dillion. It’s a toss up between Dillon and on who I saw play the most while I was in , and they’re all staying busy and heading back out on the road. and Dillon are joining back up as ’s to support on a set of dates on the East Coast.

Straight from a three week tour , saxophonist Skerik and percussionist/vibraphonist rejoin bassist Brad Houser in their other primary band, Kenny Gs, for ten dates supporting in the Southeast at the end of May. The trio will also headline a handful of its own shows during the run. Kenny Gs are behind their critically-acclaimed new album, Operation Long Leash, out on .
