October Shows in Oregon and Northern California...

Is it a TOUR? Or is it just a guy driving around with a lot of gear in his car?

I don't know! You'll have to come see me play in order to find out!

Next week I'm embarking on a short solo tour. Here's a list of dates, places, and times:

My friend Alex Callenberger drew this delightful poster for the Portland show, where I'll be playing after a screening of Kung Fury. I have no idea what this is going to do to my performance, but I would suggest not standing to close to me in case I start doing some jump kicks.

I hope to see you at some of these shows! Come listen and say hello!

In other news, I'll also be recording an album of my ambient work while I'm on this run. I'm looking forward to capturing a taste of what I've been working on for the past few years. Stay tuned to my Facebook and Instagram feeds for updates and live broadcasts from that process.

Lastly, please enjoy this clip of some recent "guitar discovery time," AKA "Dan finds a moment of solace while making a great deal of noise."

Warmest regrards, Dan.

Walls of Chordage, Racer Sessions, and Upcoming Shows.

Here's a nice excerpt from the 9/24/16 edition of Live Atmospheres at the Storyville Roasting Studio. It's from about the half-way point of my 4-hour performance. Somehow I conjured a pretty dense wall of  grinding chordage, which pleasantly reminds me of John Luther Adams gorgeous composition Become Ocean. Which you should listen to if you haven't yet.

I'll be "presenting" this Sunday, Oct 2nd at Cafe Racer's Racer Sessions series. I think that's just a way of saying that it's a evening geared towards listening and creativity. I'll be playing a solo set, followed by an open jam. Visit their website to read my artist's statement about the show. Should be a blast. Come to play, come to listen, come to say hello. The show starts at 8pm.

Also, I'll be making an appearance at the Y2K16 Looping Festival in Santa Cruz around Oct 22-23, as well as some shows in the Bay Area, Sacramento, Humboldt County and possibly Southern Oregon. Stay tuned for more details!
