Hey everybody,

I love autumn. It’s my favorite season. We had a great Halloween trick or treating with my son, the ghost1 and on Sunday we went to Camp Long, an amazing hidden valley over in West Seattle2.

It was a perfect fall day — the sun was shining, the forest was aglow and the walk was just the right length. The company couldn’t have been sweeter. And I realized it’s time to grow my beard again.

I’m very, very excited about two upcoming events:

The Lone Microphone

A singer/​songwriter battle to the death! Three singer/​songwriters enter, one leaves with the prize! Mayhem and mystery ensue! Nov. 10 @ 9pm.

Watch out! In addition to my set, one of Seattle’s great singer/​songwriters AND guitarists, master of the slow burn, Josh Clauson has a set to break your heart. Oh, and have I mentioned that RL Heyer — Seattle’s best rock guitarist — is performing as well? If you haven’t had a chance to hear this man live, he’s about to blow your mind.

The Doe Bay Getaway

The second is my first ever trip to Orcas Island and the lovely Doe Bay Resort. I’ll be playing Friday, Nov. 20 @ 7:30 pm.

Anyone who wants a relaxing getaway to Orcas Island, now is your chance — get 25% off your stay (with the “Ben Bruce Discount”) and 25% off in the Café for the weekend. Amazing! Let’s all go relax in the hot tubs (clothing optional)!

I hope to see you on Tuesday!

1 He was very specific about it. My wife offered to make him a complicated ghost outfit and he said, “No. It’s a white sheet, with two holes for eyes, and two holes for arms.”

2 We want to hold a festival there. It’s perfect.
