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) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkaF-gZ3qFE. 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 h...

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/2010/01/hey_marseilles_the_long_winter.php.

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?

Re: Electric Aphorisms

In his defense, he did apologize to John afterwards (with his empty martini glass held at a somewhat precarious angle). He seemed to have a fairly loud speaking voice so maybe he didn't realize how loud he was? It's strange but he seemed to be by himself when I saw him earlier. I don't know if he wa...

Re: Electric Aphorisms

The reading last night was fun. John did an acoustic version of Ultimatum, read some excerpts from his book (which he had his mom choose for him), then sang an acoustic version of Pushover by request from someone in the audience. The group discussion at the end of the reading was interesting but har...

Re: Long Winters Track on Charity Compilation Nov. 17

I had a chance to talk to John at the reading last night and asked about this. He said the songs are actually going to be released in stages. The Long Winters song won't be in the first batch but it will be a new song that he's still working on.
