Shows Shows Shows!! Next Week in Boston, Northampton & Saratoga Springs!

  On the 2nd- 4th, I’ll be all by myself, no Julia Sweeney, no band. Which means I can play whatever I want. And, I’ll take your request. You might want to leave a message here, as I might need to relearn a song or two. Tonight, I am with Julia at the Freedom From Religion Foundation conference.

We wrote the song together and recorded it in the B-room of Henson studios – same place where Joni recorded “Blue”, Carole did “Tapestry”, and…where Bruce’s veins were popping singing “We Are the World”. We had... Read More

The Last Show at WTC

I think it might have been the last show there before September 11th.  For good reason, and as you can see, I felt like a cocktail shrimp under the tower. It was a  quite intimidating. I remember debuting the song, “Jetpack” and ending the set with a kind of Balkan version of “I Will Survive”. A couple of weeks later, I was across the bridge in Brooklyn watching the second tower burst into flames. I was in complete denial, arguing with friends how I... Read More
