A few gigs up around the bend with the Mission Express. [Salt Lake, Denver, Fort Collins.] A couple duo shows with Stephie in Texas in December. And rescheduled dates for the Chuck & Charlie Sexton "East River Truckers" shows in Spain. You know what to do. Dig in below for up to the minute details.
There's enough spooky stuff out there already to make your hair curl, so I'll spare you a picture on this pumpkin I just carved which is a dead ringer for Billy Corgan.
Meanwhile, here's a fun Halloween video. A little background: I don't know if the magnetic poles somehow got inverted. But Berkeley, CA was always out of wack with the world. It left its mark on me. The Berzerkeley Records scene wasn't well known, but Jonathon Richman for one always loomed large for me and my friends. Still does around here. And this band, the Rubinoos? I probably saw them like 20 times in high school. And although I'm not a power pop candy boy or a Bubblegum nerd, what I loved was that they were true to their school. Be it Spaghetti Western soundtrack music or the Archies, Beach Boys, Tommy James and the Shondells. Even the Jackson 5. They knew what they loved. And wore it on their sleeves. They weren't wimps. It was always legend how they got seriously booed off the stage at Winterland opening for Blue Oyster Cult or The Starship and were all but kicked to the curb by Bill Graham. They took it as a badge of honor.
So here they are on Dutch TV with matching Fenders doing a pretty creepy doo-wop number; a cover of the Cadillacs Peek-A-Boo. [Hey, like I said, it's Halloween. Stalker songs are as American as shaving cream all over a BMW.]
Oh, and stick around for the guitar solo where Tommy does the hand-off to HIMSELF on the piano.
PS: If you're in Spain they are on tour there at this very minute. So, there you go.
