BIG TOUR THANK YOU

I’m finally home from two weeks of touring across the country with Sondra Sun-Odeon and I think I just slept for three days straight. Sondra and I shared music and time and space with so many wonderful people, I gotta say thanks from Los Angeles all the way back to the east coast, to: Alana Amram, Featherbeard, Charon Nogues, Alex Thompson and everyone at HM157, Namaste Highland Park, fthia, Andrew Is Tired, Justin Moody, AJ Woods, Ben Tempchin, Aaron Jenks, Pax and Jill at Tortuga, Frontier Restaurant, Roland Ostheim, Dezbah Stumpff, Grove of Baal, We Drew Lightning, Dave Lerner, Anne Cunningham, Trummors, Rosie and everyone at 1441 Santa Cruz, Earthships, Bailey Sun Riah, Sarah Reid, Allie Naifeh, Mark Elliott, Evan Dunn and everyone at Nice Tuesdays, Amy Heath and The Lucky Tiger, Sam Stephan, Lacey Hopkins and Dreamgirl, Kevin Drew, Patrick Holbrook, Deadbeat, Natalie Chami of TAL Sounds, Sarah and everyone at Space Oddities Chicago, actually, extra thanks to Sarah for the gift of the Nina Hagen as THE EMPRESS prayer candle, and for giving Sondra the Siouxsie Sioux as THE HIGH PRIESTESS prayer candle, they will be lit, and to Arief and Irma, Yalan Papillons and Matt Horseshit and Myra Power and everyone at Double Happiness, John Panza, the Panza family, Lauren Voss, Arms & Armor, Ra Washington and Guide To Kulchur, Matt Hickey, Brent Colflesh and everyone at Little Amps, and everyone who came out to the shows and who showed us some real good dirt.

I’m in Los Angeles, been here a week. Sondra and I are prepping for our tour: playing music, juicing green juice, practicing yoga every day at Namaste Highland Park, walking in the hazy heat. Last night I jogged up an entire mountain in the moonlight. Sunday we played a full moon supermoon meteor shower show at HM157 with Alana Amram and Featherbeard where - I’m not kidding - a shooting star shot straight into the full moon during Alana’s set and the whole crowd howled. (Those pics up there are some group photos taken by the wonderful Ryan Fuller of Fort King.) (The photo of me and Sondra is courtesy of the awesome Matthew Clark.) Feels like I could live forever here.

Namaste

End of June. Played a bunch of shows with Charlie. Ate well, traveled well, even in traffic. (1. Twilight selfie, 2. lower Manhattan looking unreal, 3. Bang on a Can Marathon, 4. Charlie Rauh and Cornelius Eady at Scholes Street Studio, 5. me and Charlie driving, 6. traffic, 7. Charlie performing at Quinn’s, 8. Far Rockaway, 9. my favorite meal when I was five.)

It’s hot. I’m sweaty. This is what it looks like: July in concrete-encased humidity. (Here’s some cool things:)1. Wednesday night, I’m playing a show at The Rock Shop in Gowanus, Brooklyn (that’s Wednesday, July 9th) with SEEMING (my friend Alex’s synthpop duo) and Julian Tulip’s Licorice. (Alex is also the author of the 33 1/3 book on They Might Be Giants and Assimilate: A Critical History of Industrial Music - did I mention he’s a brilliant critic as well as pianist and writer of pop songs?) It should be a gothy good time.2. On Friday, Charlie Rauh will be laying down some guitar tracks for the record I’ve been working on for like, forever. THE BEAST. I know, forever. It’s getting finished, though. Done. Soon and sooner. I promise.3. On Saturday, I’ll be reading at Poets House for Donald Vincent’s Mr. Hip Presents reading series. We got written up in Time Out New York! I’ll be sharing some poems alongside a good pack of readers including Ishion Hutchinson, Lisa Marie Basile, Leah Umansky, Marjorie Thousand, Ol’ Joe Brooklyn, and Teo Babini. 6 PM. Manhattan. West Side. Water. Ice cream.4. Finally - I’m going on tour! With my lady Sondra Sun-Odeon. To many places, including yours? More details soon. xo

Playing this show with a dear friend from a past life on Wednesday in Brooklyn. Haven’t written about it clearly yet, or properly digested it, comprehended it, meditated on it, but suffice to say that the first time I ever heard my voice in a microphone I was making music happen with one of the beautiful folks in SEEMING. We were kids (literally.) (We were maybe 10?) I hope someday he passes on a copy of that sound. Until then, Wednesday:+ SEEMING++ Jasmine Dreame Wagner+++ Julian Tulip’s Licorice@ The Rock Shop@@ 249 4th Avenue@@@ Brooklyn, NY 11215@@@@ 8 PM | $8 | 18+ (I think)
