Hello everyone….so i am well rested from a bit of family vacation time, and now i must resume releasing my new CD, “Accidental Thief”, into the wide world….
I will head East first, so if you are in Northampton, MA, Boston, Portland, ME, New York, Easton, MD or Washington DC, i’ll be there very soon, and i will have the new CD, NEW T-Shirts, and new songs for you to hear!….
I’ll also be sending out another email very soon that will have details and dates for the Midwest and West Coast legs of the tour, which will start in mid-August, and go through September….or you can check them out at the shows page of my website right now….www.matttheelectrician.com
And, for those of you in my lovely (albeit, too hot…107, really??) hometown of Austin, TX, i’ll be playing on August 13th at Threadgills World Headquarters, and it’s a co-bill with the amazing Joe Pug (recently heard on Prairie Home Companion)….and, it’s the last band show till October….and it’s gonna be awesome….and i really think that you should be there…..and you should get your tickets soon, cause it’s cheaper that way, for you….and, well, yeah…..
Hope to see you all soon, and i hope it’s not too hot wherever you are, and i hope it rains in Austin real soon….
