Davy Jones' Locker Combo will record this weekend at Roadrunner Studios.  its OCF weekend (www.oregoncountryfair.org/) so Samantha will be there running a booth for Broomchick (broomchick.com/)
I don't know if Tim will be doing security for OCF this year, as he will be balls deep in the operations of Old Nick's
speaking of which, 80's punk darlings of Orange County, Adolescents will be playing there soon:


I think I will be going with Le Petit Morte, to Seadog Nights:  (http://seadognights.com) to perform Somali-style ShantyCore.

I had a mellow 4th of July with my daughter and my dad and my dog.  Came back to work Monday, and kicked a fair amount of ass, as I had many cash fares today with some huge tips.

Can't believe the fucking coffee maker died...

Whiteaker People's Party is Saturday. I got the day off from work and I'll be appearing with Dwight D @ Lazarus Pit at 1 pm, Davy Jonesers at Tiny's @ 2, and the Soothesayers @ 8 pm. The Whiteaker PP is a response to the Whiteaker Block Party, (Whiteaker BLock Party is now in its 7th year!) Tim (of Soothe sayers) and Jevon organized the "People's Party" last year (2012) outside of the Block Party area, as a kind of act of defiance to the gentrification and monopolization of the Whiteaker neighborhood by Ninkasi brewing, this year the poeples party will be sponsured by Pabst Blue Ribbon, and that fact will be more of a 'two finger' salute to Ninkasi.
Originally, DavY jones' Locker Combo was going to play at the Jesco Club (AA) where Dave was caretaker at the time, THAT was to be the big F.U. to Ninkasi, because it was to be a sober party! but the little area we were to play was too small, and as soon as word got out that there was a 'non-Ninkasi' stage, it started to snowball a bit.
obv'ly not everyone is down with all the trash talking inevitably happens, about 'corporate beer' and the buying up of the neighborhood, whether its true or not, trash talking doesn't really achieve anything. & Where Tim is usually extra careful of what he does day, others close to him pick up the torch and mouth off about it. The politics of this situation makes for yucky band practices, can't we all just get along?

I've inherited the 'games group' at work, and will be running it for the first time tonight, still haven't decided what I want to play with residents. I'm very lucky to work with such great people, the staff at garden is pretty cool.

Davy Jones Locker Combo has 2 final shows: August 2nd at Tiny Tevern, and August 3rd at 2 pm @ the Whiteaker People's Party also (sigh) at Tiny Tavern. I mostly don't have a lot of time to setup any shows between family, home, work and school. We may stick around in some format under a different name, at least me and Motor City Scott. The Soothesayers are playing the Whiteaker PP at 8 pm.
recap:
DJLC 8/2 at Tiny's with BrainAke & PetitMort
DJLC 8/3 Tiny's parking lot 2 pm
Soothesayers 8/3 Tiny's 8 pm.
Anyhoo, today marks the official start of my new hours at work.


I got my baritone guitar, but it needs a setup (intonation & truss rod adjustment) otherwise it sounds great,


RUSSIAN ska? )

so I'm gona miss my brother's birthday shindig in Berkeley. I'm trying to negotiate time off for the day off, August 3rd, Whiteaker block party. If I get the day off, It'll be a double header Soothesayers and Davy Jones Locker Trio amongst the entertainment at the 'anti-Ninkasi' block party stage, Whiteaker People's Party at Tiny Tavern.

My baritone guitar will get here tomorrow. Its the 59 re-issue, not the "Dead on 67".
