Sunday: The day of our music video shoot. For the video we drove all the way out to Sauk, WI (outside of Madison) It was very cold, & if I had considered the location, I would have brought warmer clothes. The video was directed by Brian Lis, & his crew of the merry weathermen. I would like thank Brian for his help & contributions to the project. With out him, we never would have been able get the concept off the ground.
I would also like to thank everyone who came Saturday to our performance at Der Rathskeller in Madison. The audience was receptive & enjoyable to play to. Thank you TJ Matzenh & Brandon Clementi for helping me obtain the gig! I also had the pleasure of seeing Giant People, who also played that night. They are a up & coming Madison band that has been rocking a frenzy all over Madison latley. Its nice to see someone else who love Frank Black as much as I do.
Our show at Stage Right (in MKE) Friday equally enjoyably. Caley Conway & myself each played a set of our material, with Loup headlining. The combination of Caley’s family & friends, with the assorted crew of Loup & myself made for a very diverse crowd. Given that the venue is no larger then the average living room, it was rather “packed”. Thanks for having us Stage Right!?
Before we head off to our weekend in Madison, we will be playing a little Milwaukee gig. Stage Right is located off the side of The Miramar Theater. Small place, but it only fills up faster. I’ve seen some awesome Brandon Miller jazz sets there. He will be performing with Loup for the occasion. Our own Rusty Nickel, Caley Conway, will throwing in her two cents in as well. She will be performing her own material, which I will say is amazing.

Thank you everyone who came out on the 20th for our show at The Borg Ward. It really ment a lot to us to see so many friends & peeps. Everyone n the Rusty Nickels had a really awesome time. My favorite memory goes to Loup. They really ended the night was a terrific performance. Though Brandon, the groups lead man, was beyond drunk. Somehow he managed to perform flawlessly. Though talking was a bit of a struggle.
