Our deepest thanks to the large and enthusiastic late-night crowd who turned out for this hit -- we hope it was worth the wait. It was a complete thrill to have Tim Hagans and Ron Horton play with the NYC band for the first time, and we hope to have them both back soon. (In fact, one of them will be joining us for our next gig, July 9 at Le Poisson Rouge... watch this space for details.)
Our sincerest thanks as well to the organizers of the New Languages Festival: Ty Cumbie, Jackson Moore, and Aaron Ali Shaikh, for keeping the flame alive. Running an upstart, independent festival like New Languages is a thankless job at the best of times, but it is vitally important. These days, it's easy to feel like you are alone in your own isolated musical universe. Being part of New Languages made me feel like a part of a greater community of musicians and listeners -- for a moment at least, it felt like we were a roomful of people with a shared sensibility and shared goals.
