TG Update December 2013

Hello all!

Just a quick note to let you know what I’ve been up to.

-On Sat. Dec. 21st I'll be playing my first solo show in NY in over a year. I'll be joined by my friends Bryan Copeland on bass, Brent Cole on drums and Scott Loving on electric guitar. I'm honoured to share a bill with them and Gregory and the Hawk, Joe Jack Talcum and Blusher at Death By Audio! Please come on out! Here’s the facebook invitation:

https://www.facebook.com/events/126351607538628/

-L.A. Boobs (my band with Deenah) just released two new songs for free streaming. They will be part of a forthcoming EP. Stream them for free here:

https://laboobs.bandcamp.com/album/forthcoming-l-a-boobs-ep

-Also, November saw the first release from The Body, a brand-new supergroup formed by L.A. Boobs and The Burning Hell's Ariel Sharratt and Mathias Kom. Born from a single game of MASHY (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MASH_(game)) around the table at the Hostal Darnius, each member of The Body used their own MASHY results to craft a song describing their unique fate. Listen and download for free here!
