well, I'm exhausted. left san francisco friday night/saturday morning on a 1:00 am flight, and after connecting in taiwan, here I am in a nice hotel in bangkok on sunday afternoon. slept a total of five hours and hoping that one day I'll actually start getting more sleep. the good news is I finished a track on the plane ride over.
originally, I started work on this track a few months ago when an ad agency was pitching a trailer concept for Hangover 2 and they wanted me to make a track with the murray head song. the agency didn't win the bid, so i was left with this song, which as it turns out, might be the most relevant track possible to release for the one night I'm spending in bangkok. art courtesy of the venerable will reid. bali tomorrow, show details tonight below:

I’m incredibly happy to announce that I’ll be playing at Bamboozle this year, alongside a ton of acts that I gladly would (and have) paid money to see. I’ll be playing all three days of the festival along with my friend will, who crushes it on the drums -- you can see a flattering picture and artist description on the Bamboozle site.
it should be an awesome time, and likely the biggest show we’ve played, plus I’m really looking forward to being back in new york (I went to college there) and seeing all my friends there. so you should come -- grab a ticket, come by and say hi to us, and rsvp to the facebook event if your heart so desires. hope to catch you there!

my super-talented friend ben adapted and directed this play, Ubu Roi, and I’m excited to be a part of it -- I’m doing the sound for the performance, and then will be playing a DJ set after the show. it’s a stage reading and starts at 8 -- the play’s been written up in local papers and we had a great rehearsal today, and should be a lot of fun.
after the play, I’ll be playing a set that will include both tracks from the notorious xx as well as a couple of new tracks from an almost-completed mixtape, so come on by, grab a beer, hear some good music, and say hi -- check out the facebook event for additional info. hope to catch you there.

p.s. also, official announcement about new material coming very soon -- thanks to everyone who’s been asking me about it. it’s in the works :)
