This second video flyer for the Secret Project Robot show took a long time to make and I’m not really happy with it.. I wanted to keep working on it but then I got sick which slowed me down this week. It forced me to have a much needed rest. I’ll pick this one back up in the coming week.

Despite being sick for a few days I made it out for an afternoon hike on Saturday. I worked on some new Temple ov Saturn music this week… after the show at Secret Project Robot next Sunday the 18th I will be taking a break from performing to get back into recording.

November stirs up a lot of sad memories for me… I’m trying to spend as much time as I can in nature to re-center myself, especially after being in so many social situations recently. I accomplish my best work and feel most grounded when I am have minimal social interactions.

Temple ov Saturn at Ceremony 224

I played a show this week at Ceremony 224. I did a Temple ov Saturn set and a short set of my poetry. Thanks to all who came out.  I probably won't be performing in September because I want to work on recording. I have some shows lined up in October and November, I will announce them as I get the information. 

Best of The Whip Angels

Best of The Whip Angels

I released a "best of" collection of The Whip Angels material. A lot of the releases are inconsistent and that was something that I felt made the project confusing for listeners. I chose my personal favorites and the stuff that I think best represents the project and released it on Bandcamp.

ETC...

I spent a lot of my time this week practicing for the show on Thursday and preparing all the photos/zines/prints/buttons etc to bring there so my creative output was a bit sparse. Traveling to Brooklyn and performing takes a lot out of me so I spent Friday resting. Tomorrow I'm heading upstate for a week for a much needed break from my personal life and work.
