My cat Bones helping me go over bass clef for three dates with Bridget Everett's show "Rock Bottom" at Joes Pub in NYC. Honored to have played in this show written by Bridget, as well as Marc Shaiman, Tony, Grammy, and Emmy winning composer and writer (best known for Hairspray the Musical).
It was a dream of mine to work with Marc and these guys and would do it in a hot second anytime again.
Bridget Everett posters all over town!
The band (Matt Ray, Mike Jackson, Dave Berger, and me) decided to each go as one color. I am purple and kind of looking like a futuristic stewardess. Drinking from my "Pound It" Bridget Everett cup.
Backstage at Joe's Pub.
My band The Julie Ruin then flew to Olympia Washington to play at the Capitol Theater for the Olympia Film Festival. Hometown of Kathleen and Kathi, my bandmates. Everyone said hi to us on the street. A guy on a bike would yell "loved the show" while speeding by. Small enigmatic town.
Here's Kenny and Carmine having a cigarette with Eli Cruz, our sound engineer and mixer of our album. "Jaws 3D" will be aired there in a couple of days according to the poster in the window.
Old stickers in the backstage at the Capitol Theater.
