Herbst Theater Show Announced with Magik*Magik Orchestra!

Minna and I are putting together a really special show at Herbst Theater in San Francisco on June 17. We’ll have a 30-piece Magik*Magik Orchestra with choir playing White Wilderness plus back catalog hits. It’s M*MO’s 3-year anniversary!
Presale tix go up on thursday, get them fast as all floor seats are $20. Tickets are here. Password for presale is magik. Please come to this show, it’s one night only and will be very hard to do again.

Shows This WEEKEND!

Damn I can’t wait to play this weekend. Jason Slota and I have been rehearsing for months to get a duo set where we want it. It’s pretty loose and punk, down and dirty. We’re learning a lot of songs and trying to cover a lot of White Wilderness. Jason is playing drums, Moog Source, tons of percussion, toy piano and mandolin (!). I am playing guitar. (SHAME!)

Greren Grow the Rushes Vinyl is Done!

I’ll have it with me on tour this year, both here and in Europe. You can also get it as part of the pre-order options, but other than that, it won’t be sold online. I have 1000 of them so they will definitely last through the year. They are signed and hand-numbered. My wife Isabelle stamped the killer green logo on the vinyl label! Summer Makovkin did the wonderful design and screen-printing.

White Wilderness CD/LP Prorder Mania!!

Okay maybe madness is a bit much, but check out the below packages. Pretty sweet. The main thing is, if you pre-order the record, you get an immediate mp3 download of the record. Damn.

White Wilderness is a collaboration with the Magik*Magik Orchestra and arranged by the brilliant Minna Choi. Minna is my hero. When you hear the record, you’ll understand why. I am so proud of this record and can’t wait for you to get it!

A few noted about the goodies:

-The White Wilderness vinyl was mastered from the 1/2" analog tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed by RTI.

-The unique 5X7 is a print from my trusty Leica M6. I choose all of the photos and they will never be reprinted again. They are signed and I’ve added notes and locations to most of them.

-The Green Grow The Rushes EP is a high-quality 180gr RTI pressing with hand silk-screened artwork designed by Summer Makovkin. This is an all-analog, numbered release limited to 1000.

-The Hatch Show Print is amazing.

-Get the damned Platinum Bundle! You will not regret it:)
