The rehearsal tickets are a bit cheaper (they start at $25). I really hope some video of this turns up somewhere.

Re: Central Park SummerStage Show, 6/8/10

I found this on Aimee Mann's website: http://www.aimeemann.com/news.php?nid=64. It sounds like she will be singing with John. I'm curious what song they'll be performing.

John will be appearing at the Central Park SummerStage show on June 8th, 2010 - m. According to the website he'll be performing a Simon and Garfunkel song as a duet with someone. Does anyone have any more information? It sounds like it will be a fun show. Edited to add : It appears that there will a...

Re: Messin' With Texas 4/29/10

Some nice photos from the show at the Ear Candy blog : http://www.earcandybeat.com/?q=node/652.

Edited to add : Here's some footage of Shim doing La Grange: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4FUZ1Uad34.

It sounds like there was a big finale number that I missed (stupid bus schedule). Does anyone know what it was?

Re: Messin' With Texas 4/29/10

I'm not that knowledgable about Buddy Holly. I think it was Words of Love. I have to admit I didn't know all the performers and the songs they sang. Everybody was great and there was a large range of material. (Also it started at 9 and when I left at 12:30 they were just about finishing up so it was...

Re: Messin' With Texas 4/29/10

The show was a lot of fun last night. I had to catch a bus so I wasn't able to stay until the very end but I managed to see most of the show. I did see John play keyboards on the Spoon song. In addition he did two Buddy Holly songs. The first he did as a solo. Then Kurt Bloch and Mike Musburger join...

Re: Messin' With Texas 4/29/10

Are we sure John is performing? I don't see it listed under Shows page on the website with the other upcoming John solo shows. I know Eric sat in with one of the bands for the Quadrophenia MusiCares show so I assumed he was the Long Winters member that was performing.

Re: Two more shows with BG and JF.

Video of Mimi on You Tube (the orientation is off for the first part but it gets corrected) : m. In the intro John mentioned that he offered to sing The Beatles' Sexy Sadie for Laura's birthday. When she agreed that would be great he admitted he didn't know how to play the song. Mimi was her second ...

Re: John Appearing in David Bowie Tribute

I hadn't realized this show was going to have reserved seating. I just remembered to buy a ticket and ended up with an orchestra pit seat. The good news: I will be close to the stage. The bad news: I won't actually be able to see the stage.

Re: giveseattle.org's video of "Not Moving to Portland"

Mine downloaded cleanly without having to do anything else. Maybe I waited long enough for them to fix the problem? Anyway, glad you were able to get it to work.

John on Starbucks Compilation

John is on a new Starbucks compilation doing a version of a ZZ Top song : http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/reverb/2 ... winter.php. I wonder if it's the same version he did in Portland? The song is available on iTunes now, the CD (for people like me who still buy the shiny pieces of plastic) will be out later this month.

John Appearing in David Bowie Tribute

John is going to be appearing with the Seattle Rock Orchestra in a David Bowie tribute: http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/reverb/2 ... ays_tr.php. I haven't seen Seattle Rock Orchestra but I've heard they're pretty amazing. Add Bowie glam rock and John and I will definitely be there. Any guesses what song you think John will perform?

Re: Electric Aphorisms

Barsuk is now selling John's book in their on-line store: http://www.barsuk.com/shop/ps0009. The picture of the book shows a sketch of John on the cover. My copy has a plain cover so I was just wondering what everyone else's copy looks like.

Re: Music video!?!?

The GIVE Seattle charity compilation is also going to have some associated videos. I had read somewhere The Long Winters was one of the groups that was going to have a video so maybe that's what they were filming?

It looks like John is going to help Gibson debut a new guitar at EMP next Monday : http://www.genestout.com/index.php/gibs ... usk-tiger/ . I know absolutely nothing about guitars but it does look beautiful.
