People comment all the time how we never update the blog with office visit pictures anymore…folks still stop by, but they’re all pretty much tired of posing for our bad pictures. Rob Sonic, DJ Big Wiz, and Aesop Rock (the group now known as Hail Mary Mallon) humored us. They even posed with a copy of Sonic Sum’s second single, “Callarama Galla” (featuring a Dan Lang cover). They’re about to do a bunch of tour dates (and release a new album on RSE). More Aesop news on his new site including new shirt designs & tour dates…
Grouch & his lovely wife Larissa checked in yesterday and reminded me about the upcoming tour (click the flyer for more detailed info). Grouch also decided to put the LRG sweater he’s wearing in the “Breath” video on Ebay, which can find here.

Well, it’s nearly that time! After staying off the road for the better part of two years, I’ll be hitting the tour circuit again starting in July, 2010. Many of the countries and cities on the schedule are first-time territories for me, including Greece, Israel, and Finland, and there’s many more to come. Consider this the “between albums tour,” no record to promote, just a chance to get out there and showcase some of the new music I’ve been working on (and yes, some classics as well). More info & first tour dates here.
