Four guys named John walk into a bar.

Had a great time the night after our benefit show in Williamsburg seeing Long Winters frontman and 
old pal John Roderick's solo show at the low key but beautiful Union Hall in Park Slope. Roderick did an inspired set with a tremendous amount of spontaneous hijinx 
and a nice duet with Nada Surf's Matthew Caws. Ran into the Deranged Millionaire himself Mr. John Hodgman in the crowd with Jonathan Colter. After the show we all 
went up stairs for a game of bocci (which I believe is Italian for "horseshoes with balls"). We understood the game a lot better by the end, although still probably not 
well enough to go against real players. In spite of our blissful ignorance , the competition was intense. My team with Coulter, The Good Guys, got an early lead but 
as the nuances of the game were revealed the subtle, graceful touch of Mr. Hodgman began to dominate the play and we lost. 
I think we felt like the Yankees do right now.


Halloween in Dallas

Spend Halloween doing a kids show. Many moms and dads and kids in costume and the entire band wore some kind of mask for the entire set. Here's the picture!
