I write from a coffee shop in New Haven, CT, basically in the heart of Yale (at least I’m certainly leeching their wifi). Seems very nice around here, very Ivy League, although a quick trip to the other side of town to do a radio show revealed the other side of this town to be not quite so genteel. Interesting contrasts. The last few days have just been beyond insane for me, much of it being stuff behind the scenes, and most of it being good news, but it certainly tires me out some. I’ve got a lot to get through today, so I’ll stop rambling and start, uh, blogging?
First up, shows. Two new ones to talk about. For those of you in Florida, I have news! On the 14th of November, before playing the House Of Blues in Orlando, I’ll be playing a free instore show at Park Avenue CDs, at 3pm. Come join the fun!
Next up, I’m going to be finishing off my year before Christmas with a show in Val D’Isere, on December 17th, as part of the XFM Rocks The Mountains events. You can apply to win tickets to get flown out for this by reading about it here. It’s a pretty snazzy way for me to be wrapping up 2010, so apply for tickets and we can share some drinks in the snow.
Finally, on the subject of shows, for the UK tour Aberdeen, Sheffield, Exeter and Liverpool are all sold out, and London, Oxford and Southampton will most likely go in the next week or so. So if you’re wanting to come down to one of the shows, I’d get on with getting your tickets ASAP!
And to wrap up for today, a Radio update for UK people. Thanks to everyone for their support in texting, emailing and tweeting radio people about “I Still Believe“, every little helps. Fearne Cotton gave me a daytime play the other day and we’re hoping for more, so do keep hounding that one. Also, the song is up for voting on 6Music’s Rebel Playlist – check it out here and cast a vote!
Right, back to the grindstone, those T-shirts aren’t going to count themselves. And just before I go, I have to say this tour is a blast. As well as the joy of hanging with the good people in Social D and Lucero and their crews, the crowds on this tour have been a joy to play to, and I’ve made a lot of new friends. So, thanks, welcome aboard, onwards and upwards!
