With The Band!

Somehow I’ve gone quite a while without capturing any video of the band, which is a shame. No more! Below are three videos from a recent gig in Arnold, CA, with Josh Certo on drums, Kevin Bernido on bass, and Chris Stevens on guitar. (See, it’s not all just “guy with acoustic guitar” music!)

Videos From the Grand Tetons

Tour has wrapped up, and there were many fun adventures shared, but two of my favorite were captured on video below. First, Jimbo and I played “Pick Up Your Horn” beneath the Grand Tetons. Then, we played “The Downside” about as close to a moose as you can safely be. Both videos are below, thanks to Katie Schluntz for filming (and working moose-lookout.) See you on the next tour!

Front of House Podcast

I sent a copy of The Optimist to Mike Dawson when it was released, hoping to receive an invite to play the California Avocado Festival as I had in years past. Imagine my surprise when he called me up and invited me to appear on his (relatively new) podcast, Front of House. I cruised down to his Burbank Bungalow and sat down for an hour of conversation and music. The podcast is in the iTunes Podcast App, search either “Front of House” or “DawsAngeles”, but you can also stream it from your browser. The songs I played are: The Lampolier, Westward, Philip Marshall Cates, Moonshine, Boulder, & Chain of Fools. Thanks to Mike for having me!

The Optimist on KALX

I’m over the moon to see that The Optimist has not only broken into the rotation at KALX 90.7, UC Berkeley’s radio station, but it was #14 on last week’s charts among the fine company of Beck, Wye Oak, Broken Bells, Aloe Blacc, and St. Paul & the Broken Bones.  If you’re in the Bay Area, feel free to tune in and keep your ears peeled!  Oh, and by the way, their request line is 510-642-KALX. (Please don’t harass them, but who knows what effect a phone call could have? )
