11:30 pm: Madeline (one-of-a-kind songstress from Bloomington, IN)

1:00 am: Peter and the Wolf and the Ecstatic Orchestra of Junk (this sound is ever-evolving, and this time we're going to add to the SPATIAL dimension as well as the AURAL. get your engines running.)

I'm going to post this bulletin again, but I'm freaking excited that we've put this show together. holy freaking cow.

Peter and the Wolf: Summer 2006 Tour Announcement

Okay guys,
This is insane.

Touring all through July and August, hitting Canada on both the West and East, this summer's Peter and the Wolf tour will include:

1. R. Hunter performing with a different band-of-a-dozen-hobo-friends in almost every town.

2. A SAILBOAT section of the tour along the Atlantic coast with Jana Hunter and Castanets!! It started with a beer-influenced conversation about how everyone plays the same venues over and over and how we should name some boat the SS Hunter and get out on the freakin ocean! (fingers crossed, kids, it ain't gonna be easy)

3. An Order-of-the-Owl style documentary filming of one week of the tour which consists of shows in non-venues like a crashed train, a barn, etc.

There’s no denying it: This is going to be the strangest, funnest, craziest thing we've EVER done.

Whiskey and Apples SXSW Super-Rad-List

Well it's finally done. Having listened to almost all the SXSW performing artists who put songs up on sxsw.com, I've made a calendar of what we'll be doing during the madness (including our own shows, of course.) And below each list, I've also included the acts we won't be able to see but would love to. [Note: Just because a performance is listed in the second category doesn't mean it's not our preferred show, often distance or close friends have to take precedence in decision-making.] So here you have it, the 2006 Whiskey and Apples SXSW Super-Rad-List:
