While I’ve been taking a hiatus from my music and having another baby… Morgan and I have been working VERY hard on Gustafer Yellowgold. We have a brand new DVD/CD coming out that I was honored to sing on, and am honored to be a part of and to share with you.

“Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock” will be officially released on March 1st, and is available here… http://www.gustafer-store.net/

Morgan will be performing the whole DVD as a brand new show at the DR2 Theatre in Union Square, NYC, every Saturday at 11am and 1pm for the next 6 weeks. You can get discounted tickets to see it here… http://www.broadwayoffers.com – CODE: DR2GUST

I’ll be there every weekend with Harvey and Ridley, so please do come and say hello! FYI, it may LOOK like a kids show, but it is truly for everyone, so feel comfortable coming without a child!

And if you are wondering what in the world Gustafer Yellowgold even IS, check out the website and all the other places he is…

I will be performing again, probably in June, probably at the Living Room, probably with a baby on my back or at least very close by! I’ll post the info soon…

Thanks so much!

We left today for our upcoming series of Gustafer shows which will take us through Mississippi, Tennessee and North Carolina. It’s hard to run our business from the road – but it’s possible. Harvey did well on the first day in the car, he had a great long three hour nap, then enjoyed avocado rolls and listening to Rubber Soul. I think this tour is going to be fun!

We went to the city yesterday, driving to the Bronx where Morgan dropped me off at a 2 train station with Harvey. He and I went down to Manhattan while Morgan continued on to perform at a library.

Harvey and I got off the train at 34th Street to drop off copies of our possible book-to-be, then getting back on the subway to Brooklyn, visiting a friend then staying at another friend’s place so that we could be close to the city for getting up this morning at 6 a.m. to be at Irving Plaza at 7 a.m. in time to load-in and soundcheck and do a show. Needless to say that we didn’t sleep well, or rather not much at all – air beds create a cushion of cold in the wintertime! I have to remember that…

Friends helped us so much at the show, with Harvey especially, and it all went well – but this is HARD! We are TIRED!

Now we are COLD too… but we somehow still love each other, all three of us.

We arrived at Barnes and Noble just in time to find several people waiting to help us load in and set up. Morgan sets up the stage, I set up the merch table, then we sit back and enjoy the show!
