Oct 26, 2016HOME FROM TOURS!
Sep 29, 2016I've been on tour for the last 2 weeks with my band Similar Fashion (w Lauren Baba, Greg Uhlmann, Jesse Quebbeman-Turley). We are playing a homecoming show tomorrow in LA (Friday, Sept 30). If you are in town and able to make it, it would be incredible to see you there!! I'm BEYOND excited about the stuff we're doing and think you would really really like it. Really wild and fun. Something like avant-rollercoaster-jazz-n-roll or something. Lots of noisy grooves, singing, dancing. Saxophone, viola, guitar, drums. The band is ON FIRE and I'm just freaking out excited about it.
Sep 27, 2016SIMILAR FASHION TOUR has been so so amazing! Thanks to everyone that has come to see us, danced along, bought shirts and CDs, put us up in their homes.. YOU ARE THE BEST! Our homecoming show in LA is going to be this Friday. It's going to amazing!! It's a late one, but a very punctual one. Grape Room plays RIGHT at 10pm and we play at 10:40. See you there!!
