We had a great time at the OC Fair on Saturday night. Nice crowd and we rocked it up pretty good.
Special shoutout to my Patreons and new mailing list members!
First up is I have 3 shows in the OC this week:
Monday, July 25 - Live on KOCI 101.5FM 8 pm (listen live here)
Tuesday, July 26 - Campus Jax, Newport Beach, CA
Wednesday, July 27 - The Mamba, Huntington Beach, CA
In August it's just 4 gigs on two different coasts:
Friday, August 12 - House Concert, Greenfield, NH
Saturday, August 13 - Union Coffee, Milford, NH 3-6 pm
Friday, August 19 - Silverado Canyon Market, Silverado, CA
Saturday, August 20 - The Night Owl, Fullerton, CA
Then after that it gets a bit crazy even for me and I could use a little help. You see, I usually book things way out ahead of time but I had something new come up and it's left me with some empty space in my touring schedule that I'm trying to fill last minute.* I know that sounds a little vague and I have reached out to some friends who are trying to put some stuff together for me but here's how it shakes out.
I will be in Europe for near 7 weeks. I start in Austria and then head west to Germany and Belgium. After that I head to the U.K. where I don't have anything confirmed yet and then Ireland where I only have two things confirmed the end of the month. So it leaves me with like 10-12 days of nothing.
"Nothing" on tour means going broke. I'm going to apply for a busker permit in Dublin so I can do a bit of that but that's not enough.
What I'm asking for is if you know of anyone, anyplace or anything that could use some of what I do in the U.K. or Ireland in October. That would be fantastic. Hell, even a couch to crash on would be great.

That's all for today. I will of course be keeping a tour diary during all of this and I may even do a pre-tour diary so you can see how to pack with one bag and one guitar for 7 weeks. I'm going as guerilla style as possible with all the airline issues with luggage I'm trying to keep everything on me as much as I can and not check any bags or guitars.
xo and talk soon.
*Last minute in Europe means anything less than 6 months in advance. Last minute in the U.S. is...well, I got asked last week to perform this week ~ so it's...different.
