Mon. Trey. All.

My fingers smell like ribs. Night night.

Bad Blogging

So, i haven't been nearly as diligent thus far on what I hoped to be a return to form "tour blog" but....Im gonna try and catch up but also am realistic enough to know that it cant ever be like it once was, and theres too many factors to why that is true. Its a different animal, and a different pace and buzz control. But it is great so far and I think tonight, in Ottawa, we may have glimpsed what it might mean to hit our stride. Not that we have, but it was a sweaty burner, the setlist perfect, and if it were any other band I've ridden the rails w/ we'd stick w/it for many or most of the shows, but that won't cut it out here. And thats fun too. Got out of MY comfort zone tonight ,in a good way and the encore consisted of TWO songs I HAVE NEVER PLAYED but it was a blast. Once Steve sheds his jet lag, and I can heal we'll b all good. I'm currently nursing THREE contusions from the last 2 nights all foolishly acquired in the clumsy line of duty. But worth every bloody drop. Holy Sons are delivering and morphing from orb to orb each night. Every single one of them dudes is a master. Im sad Wilson cant be here with us, but the only consolation is really seeing each Son really shining. It's only the beginning. Send money

Prep Week: Promises

Final 5 days to prep for Jicks tour, work, go to the doctor, practice, and play a Nightmoves show. I'm going to do my best to continue tour blogging for this upcoming SM/Jicks tour as I have for all the others. Mike and I leave early saturday morning, the 17th to drive the van and gear to Detroit by the night of the 19th. It's gonna be a long haul, but we're loaded w/Dead shows and podcasts. The late summer here in Portland has been great and MFNW just finished up. I love it here but I am very, very ready to get out of here for a while...... See you out there.

Jicks on Fallon, watch whole episode, while u can

copy and paste, won't let me link it. Was a fun wild time.

LA and NY were an exhausting blast. Throw in Hurricane(?) Irene and you've got a helluva trip. 3 instores, 2 tapings, countless dinners, a sea of drinks, and 4 celebrity hob-nobs. Back in Portland for a busy 2 weeks to get ready for tour.

Hookers open for Grails in Seattle, and Vancouver
Nightmoves play in Portland 9/16.

Then I'm off................

Here are some of the dates, with more to be released later. I'm hoping Spain and NL still get added.
Summer has finally arrived in Portland. About 3 more weeks til The Jicks thing begins for real, not just in a basement or faking in front of a camera. I'm ready to go.

A lot has happened since the last post. What started as a Joggers band blog quickly became a hired gun drummer blog, with longings for it one day returning to it's original intent. With some little ripples of Joggerz activity last year now far off in the distance, and an over two year hiatus from touring, it's exciting to say that I'm back. I couldn't ask for a sweeter gig playing with Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks, especially on tour for such a sweet record. Mirror Traffic comes out on my brothers birthday, 8/23 and I'll be atop the throne vacated by thelegendary Janet Weiss. I can't wait for the fall, and a chance to see many of the friends and family I only get to see in a touring capacity. It's been too long, but I'm refreshed and at the ready.

The Joggers Into The Woods Talking@Keith video of us playing in Darrells house, just so happened to be the last time we all played together. Ben has moved back to his native Boston to help solve our global health crisis. Darrell has continued to grow his contracting business and raise the sweetest lil lady in Portland. As well as risk life and limb on the mean suburban hockey ice and hella urban softball diamonds of our fair city. Daniel Sigmund Henry Wilson has been dazzling stage and screen all over the world in too many bands to mention, but most recently Holy Sons and Scout Niblett. Occasionally you'll find us playing boogiebluesjamimprovs together with our friend Zac as HooKERS, or with up and comers Classic Rock revivalists, NIGHTMOVES, fronted by yours truly. Alright then.......
