Busy busy -

March is going to be a real busy month for us, with six shows on the schedule and one private party. All this while recording an album at the same time - what's that spell? B-U-S-Y! But it's all for a good cause, we're ramping up for a big summer and ready for the next phase in Mohave's development.

The recording process continues as Automatic John has laid down his keyboard dubs - Randy and I will return to Richter Records on Monday to work with our tracks as well. I try not to look too far ahead into the future with the band, because it's mostly all about the moment, steering each song whether we're writing and rehearsing or performing and recording. Jae's got the lockdown on all of the planning and scoping out new venues, connecting with the people who book shows. It's nice not to have to think about that anymore. I'm an artist - unorganization comes naturally.

Book 'em Dan-O, er....Jae

Two new bookings have popped up for gigs - one at Miami's Tobacco Road and one at what is increasingly becoming a "regular" place for us to perform: Hard Rock Live. Both gigs are in March and we're confirming details as we speak!!

In the meantime, we've got rehearsal tonight and we're working out a lot of new material that can be found on our lyrics page including "Artist", "Nine One One" and "The Irish In Me." That last song is already shaping up to be quite a monster, as the demo version has received numerous thumbs-up - and usually, my demos aren't for public consumption, if you catch my drift. (Think "suck")

Being back in the old Naked Headquarters rehearsal space behind Randy's house is a treat and the energy is wonderful. Here's to hoping the neighbors won't freak out!

Or is that "oh-ow"? Went to the dentist's this morning and got a deep cleaning. I don't know how many injections the doctor gave me, but there's nothing like hearing the skin inside of your mouth pop as the needle goes in. Now, my cheek is sort of swollen and we've got rehearsal tonight. Well, damn the pain! Consider it inspiration for the blues.
