A day off in Berlin, one of the greatest, most vibrant cities of the continent, and I’m holed up in a hotel room in my pants drinking tea and watching German TV. I guess we’ve been out on the road for a long while now, huh. The whole Christmas thing is looming again with predictable regularity (bah Humbug etc.), but there’s some good news to impart here and there, so let’s begin.
First off all, I’m over-the-moon happy to announce that the mighty Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip will be joining me and Billy Bragg at the Wembley show in April 2012. They’re a truly amazing pair of musicians, and it’ll be great to have them up on stage with us. There are a few more people to announce for the bill, but we’re still finalizing the details, so I’ll get those names to you as soon as I can.
Secondly, we’ve added a whole bunch more shows to the Spring tour of the USA. As well as extra shows in Ventura and Pomona (with Social D) and Boston (with the Dropkick Murphys), we’ve added headline shows in El Paso TX, San Luis Obispo CA, Eugene OR, St Louis MO, Columbus OH, and Bloomington IL. Check them out on the “upcoming gigs” tab right up there at the top of the page.
Finally, in my previous blog I mentioned the fact that Farida guitars are working on a limited run of a signature model guitar for me. There are more details right here, check it out.
Right, sleep time!
