That Collingwood Guy.

Photo by that Murnane guy.
When he's not off on the road somewhere with Fountains Of Wayne, Chris Collingwood is just another guy hanging out in the Northampton area like the rest of us. Those of you who have my album may also have noticed that he engineered it and provided all the drum and percussion tracks. He's a good guy to have around when he's around.

This coming Saturday (October 27th), he's putting on one of those newfangled internet concerts that seem to be building in momentum everywhere. Our mutual friend Brad apparently talked him into it, and is even hosting the event. You can read what Chris wrote about it HERE and sign up to see the broadcast HERE.

Chris took me up on my offer to use my little PA, and also asked if I'd like to sit in on a couple of things. So we'll see what happens. The only thing I don't like about seeing and hearing Chris perform is being reminded how much better his songs are than mine.

October Surprise.

Seeing how I put up a free download in honor of that Paul McCartney fellow's birthday back in June, here's one for
John Lennon (which is only fitting, considering we share October as our birth-month).


In other news, I've got two shows coming up. Apart from the annual First Night Northampton bash on New Year's Eve, these will be the last two shows in my performance schedule for this year. Even if you can't make it to either of these, please let your Springfield and Hartford friends know about them. Thanks!

Friday, October 19th at the Bing Arts Center in Springfield, MA.

Saturday, October 20th at La Paloma Sabanera Coffee House in Hartford, CT
