Friends,

It’s been a good run, but C86d decided that it’s not feasible to keep up a blog with all of our other on going projects.

One last cassette post, but before that a little info about the people involved in C86d:

Tom Pavlich runs Mirror Universe Tapes, and occasionally writes…

I just want to say that I am SO pumped on the quality of shows in Southern California in 2014. It’s really exciting that so many great things are happening right now.

Lately I’ve been posting links for upcoming shows that make it to my radar on facebook every week because while they’ve all been incredibly inspiring, more than a few have had small turnouts.

As someone who’s played hundreds of shows to virtually no one, I’ve learned the difference between 5, 10 or 20 more folks at a show makes such a huge difference for everyone there. The biggest hurdle for a lot of the events you or I or anyone we know put on is spreading the word.

So maybe try posting/talking about cool events happening in your town even if you aren’t going to attend or aren’t best friends with the people involved, because someone who’d like it but wouldn’t hear about it otherwise will go. You’ll surely find something great from someone else too. None of this stuff has to be kept a secret from other folks who’d enjoy or contribute.

I’m excited to present two shows in Southern California for Julie Byrne this March. She’s a good pal, amazing songwriter and among the most captivating musicians I’ve seen live. Seeing her perform in candlelight at my friend Dan’s third floor Chicago apartment, fill the cavernous chamber of Human Resources in Los Angeles and finding old postcards she sent to buddies in Buffalo after hearing her first tape on Teen River are all great memories. I’m grateful for the opportunity to book these shows at two of my favorite spaces here. Hopefully you can come see a piece of music/video I’ve rarely shared in LA, and witness a performance from a hard working friend.

1/19: Family Life tape swap at Blood Orange

Family Time Records and I are putting on a tape swap at Blood Orange Info Shop featuring performances from my touring friends Gossimer and Autococoon from Oakland and Seattle. I’m really excited to have them on this show at one of the best spaces in California. I was just at a show there a week ago and the energy and enthusiasm was really amazing.

Thank you / new 7” out now

Thank you so much to everyone who was a part of this past tour in any way. There really are no words for what happened over the past five months. How do you explain the greatest time of your life when asked as a mere formality?

How does a sentence capture the feeling of playing a show nearly every night in such varied circumstances, or making best friends with people you may never meet again, or the joy of discovering deep humor in everything, or the infinite nuances that make each day so different and so similar to those before it?

I’m grateful that this tour happened exactly as it did, that I could travel with my great friends Jack, Spencer, Bryce, Alex, Luke and Jenny, that the maze of logistics and planning more or less worked out as intended, that so many folks helped out with opportunities to perform, transportation, food, equipment and places to sleep. It’s hard to believe that by abstracting things I can’t word into music, people out there understand it in some way and want to help. Mostly, I’m grateful that I’m able to do this at all, to see America from a perspective that few know exists, and to be aware that this isn’t some grand undertaking I did on my own. It’s not just my tour when it’s something that is only possible with help from hundreds, maybe thousands of people who each contribute in their own way with their presence. Thank you to all of you, even the folks that weren’t physically present. I’ll see you again.



My newest release is a song titled “Probably Tomorrow” on a 4-way split 7” with Reighnbeau, Torn Humorist and Light Light that can now be ordered from Family Time Records. This might be the most upbeat and optimistic piece I’ve released and is more appropriate for me now than ever. The three other tracks on this record are truly amazing, and are my favorite songs by longtime friends that are continually pushing what they’re doing with each release.
