Pretty as you feel

Mid-week drop of this excellent reminder - you're only pretty as you feel!



What if age is just a mind set?

Fieldwire Session Tonight!

We're in the midst of weird, warm and rainy weather, setting the mood for another session with wet leaves, southernly winds, and hissing street sounds. If local, join us for a great night of music with Dredd Foole, Ruth Garbus, Scotty Tabachnick and Passerine.

Here's a live video of Ruth from a couple of years ago singing a song that's now on her recent EP.



Here's a brief interview with Dredd Foole:



And here's a rare solo appearance by Scotty Tabachnick at the original Festival of Endless Gratitude:



Just to keep the vibe alive, here's the Bee Gees doing a track from Odessa live in '74"

Autumn Almanac



King Harvest has surely come

Longer sun angles, warm days and chilly nights, change of wardrobe, mud on the boots, the final mowing of the lawn, piles and piles of leaves and a total lunar eclipse of a "blood moon" covered by hard rains and high winds. Welcome to the season!

We're excited to be prepping for the next Fieldwire Session at the Future Space with Dredd Foole, Scotty Tabachnick, Ruth Garbus, and Passerine next week. The night is a bit of a change of pace with words, chord changes, hell maybe even a bridge or two. We're fans of just about everything here at FW, and the shows will reflect that, though since this town gets less of the weird stuff we tend to lean that way as a public service. Look for the official flyer here as soon as the graphics department gets it across the office--they've been working hard lately and deserve plenty of kudos for their fine work. THANKS!

We're working on some great shows in the next few months, as well as getting some guests in for broadcasts. The studio is working out pretty well, though my on air skills are a bit diminished after a few years off the mic and mixer. Nonetheless, look for a player on the mother site soon so you can see when we're live, as well as follow fieldwire on Twitter for live show updates.

Here are a few of our wanderings over the last couple of weeks.
