This weekend we’re laying down “Big Cigarette” and “Ten Sleeves” at the amazing Tiny Telephone recording studio in San Francisco, once again with our good friend Alan Weatherhead at the helm. The two songs, recorded 100 percent analog, will be pressed as a seven-inch and should be ready in spring 2015. Meanwhile, some photo evidence.
Here’s us the last time we played the vaunted Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco. We’re even better looking now. Come catch us there on Thursday, September 25, along with excellent local bands the Jaunting Martyrs and Fritz Montana–doors are at 8:30, and we go on at 9:00. Say you heard about it through the website and we’ll give you a free copy of C’mon Thunder. Oh, and here’s the Facebook invite.
For work, a spellcheck on the name of the 1960s New York mayor (it’s John Lindsay) led me to this guy. John Lindsey’s a first baseman/outfielder who went 1-for-12 in a cup of coffee with the Dodgers in 2010 at age 33. I didn’t notice then, maybe you did. But dig what he did in the minors! He’s in the Mexican league now, rocking a .306/.409/.645 slash at age 37. Here’s to my new hero.
On Monday, September 15, at 8pm, Thunderegg—in full-band acoustic incarnation, featuring James on his suitcase drum kit—returns to Osteria in San Francisco for some delicious dinnertime jams. It’s our first show since the August tour sent Will all the way across the country and back. Come see how good he got. The Facebook event is here, and you can make reservations here.
