Music Video! Michael Musika & Eric Kuhn kindly invited me to be in a music video with them at the Yoga Loft. It was a learning process for me, superfun, and I'm really grateful for the experience. We bonded with the demo skeleton, despite cutting off his/her head in the shot. Thanks to Brick Thornton, who teaches on Wednesdays, as he let us use the studio with the light! Thank you to Meg & Josh at the Loft for letting us use the space!

Speaking of SLOW MOTION COWBOYS, they made a Kickstarter page to help fund their new album, Buzzard Songs. These guys are some of my favorite people and musicians in SF, and their songs for this album are superb. They've done all the recording, over a year ago, just need the funding to press the albums and get them out into the world! Help 'em out? 

Also! They're playing my birthday show at the Make-Out Room Sunday February 19th.Save the date?? The next day is President's Day, so maybe you have the day off and have more of a reason to go out the night before.
