Hey everybody!

I’m gearing up for the Lone Microphone tonight with Austin Jenckes, Spare Rib and Dillon Warnek! It’s going to be great! Come down and here my “Love At First Sight: The Mr. Bojangles Creation Myth” and more. Info below.

Don’t forget about Rebearth (http://​www​.ter​ra​roots​.org) on Sunday April 25! Seattle’s Earth Day celebration with 9 bands, clowns and jugglers, speakers, and more, oh my! Come check it out!

People are on our house right now tearing off the roof. Hammering, large shuddering commotions … Madness. But they are going to finish the entire roof in two days, so it’s amazing, too1.

Speaking of new roofs, you know the phrase, “Not too shabby”? I think it’s funny when something isn’t great you shake your head and say, “Too shabby!” That just makes me laugh.

Another thing that makes me happy is that I was just asked to perform at the Bite of Seattle in July2!

There was a guy at the Shipwreck Tavern — from the first note he was yelling happily! — who told me, “You are THIS CLOSE to being super cool!” He meant it in a nice way!

I think that’s everything for now. I hope you are all enjoying the spring!

– Ben
