Spent the evening of resurrection Sunday at the first practice with the new bass player for The Larch. Yes, Ian's band has had an amicable and all-for-the-best spring shake up. You can check out the new Larch groove - still propelled by Tom Pope on drums, and now complemented by Ross Bonadonna's skillful low end - on Saturday 4/29 at Freddy's with our Pennsylvania pop-pals the Dropzines at 10, The Larch at 11 and new spunk-lads-spin-off the Saudi Agenda at 12. http://www.freddysbackroom.com Then I woke up this morning to a voice mail offering me something in the professional entertainer type opportunity sector. As a spring baby (Aires) I think I'm even more inclined to view the first warm days as the beginning of the year. Today I am in a good mood, and I am ready for the new.
