You're almost rid of me

To all you lonely souls needing a thursday night to remember, have I got a treat for you. As you know, my homeless stint in Chicago is winding up now, and to celebrate me leaving (because I know you're all sick of me sleeping at your places and eating your food and just generally smelling awful) the Horseshoe is throwing me a going away party. It's at 9pm tomorrow night. Tomorrow being thursday the 31st of august. I hope to see everyone I've had a conversation with at the show. It's your last chance until September to see me. I'm going home to finish my LP and then plan my homeless stretch in Los Angeles, which I fear will be slightly more difficult to deal with than Chicago (bravo, chicago transit system). I'll miss all you hot dog eating, cubs or white sox hating or loving, deep dish pizza making, shot taking, head-aching, cookie baking sons of bitches!! I loved it here and I can't wait to come back. See you tomorrow!

ACL Contest

ACL contest

Hello friends. I should have posted this a week and a half ago, but better late than never. I'm doing well in this competition to play at ACL this year, and it's all due to the friends, family and fans that have been voting. Thank You! If I end up playing ACL, I'm going to kiss all of you one by one. There are several rounds in this competition, and in this round you can vote once a day everyday from every email address you have. Feel free to email your friends to spread the word and get them to help. If I make it in the top 100, I go to the second round. And right now I'm ranked 5th or something. So things are going well. Click HERE to vote.

And then click "vote" and follow the steps from there. It would really help me. Thanks!! Ba-bye!!

Yo Peeps-

I miss my friends. But I'm learning Chicago pretty well, and feeling more comfortable here. I can't wait to see Austin again, though, so don't think I'm gone forever. I've been writing a lot of songs up here. Throwing yourself into circumstances such as mine can make you look at life in a very poetic way. It's amazing. Everything I see and experience just seems like a song waiting to happen. Walks I take, conversations I fake, the rising stakes. The sun is usually rising when I go to bed. It's all very romantic. I can't wait for y'all to hear some of the new stuff. Some of it might make it on the new record. We'll see. There is a party bus boarding outside right now and it's taking everyone to a rock show. I'm definitely getting on it. And that ain't no metaphor. I kind of love this city.


P.S. Please keep up the voting for the ACL Festival contest...I am in 5th right now with a month to go! Please vote here.

ACL competition

Hey, will y'all do me a favor and vote for me to play at ACL festival in Austin, TX. I don't need to be number 1 or even number 20. I just need to make the final cut so the big whigs can vote me in. You can vote once per day per email would be my heroes...but careful about creating a ton of addresses as they monitor votes from IP's!

here is the url:

Sound and the Jury

Just go there and click on the vote now button. I'd really appreciate it.

Arrived in Chicago

I'm in Chicago. I arrived yesterday. I've already met a thousand people I think, and I don't know what the hell is going on. But it's pretty fun at the same time. The first thing Heidi and I did was play on Fearless Radio literally 45 minutes after pulling into town. You can listen to the podcast from yesterday here:

Fearless Podcast

If anyone in this city knows me, please don't be shy to email me and let me know you're here and that you want to hang out. Seriously. Plus, the more places I have to sleep the better, just in case I burn some bridges here and there. So I'll keep you updated. To my friends back home: I miss you still. Call me and tell me you miss me, please. The tour back home is coming together. Keep an eye on the myspace or website for updates and tour dates. To everyone in the world: See you soon.
