September 2017 Residency at the Hideout

Here are the details: Monday, Sept 4th: Dolly Varden will play “The Panic Bell” on the 10th anniversary of the album, followed by a set of new songs slated for our 7th album. I’ve been actively writing and the band has been recording since March. We’re about halfway through making a new record. We’re recording at my home studio, Kernel Sound Emporium. Tickets and more info here Monday, Sept 11th: Steve Dawson and Mark Caro’s “Take It To The Bridge” Bridge-tacular featuring Kelly Hogan, Casey McDonough, Nora O’Connor, Rachel Drew, Gerald Dowd, Bill Brickey, Alton Smith and others.

Funeral Bonsai Wedding is me on guitar & vocal, Jason Adasiewicz on vibraphone, Jason Roebke on upright bass […]
