New York wakes up to pristene snow, and falls asleep to dirty slush. Today
some of my U.S. tour dates with Kathleen Edwards were announced. We’ll spend
most of May performing in warm places. She’s a musical badass, so I’m really
looking forward to it. Plus, the tour will reunite me with Jim Bryson,
Kathleen’s collaborator and tourmate, whose fedora and natural charm
endeared me to him during the Weakerthans tour last fall. I’m deeply
enjoying this time home in New York, but I’ve learned that I feel worlds
saner about having choosen this career when I’m in some kind of physical
circuit with other humanoids – whether at live shows, recording, whatever.
Outside that circuit, it’s too easy to lose the plot.
