The summer of 2014 officially is awesome. First! Vagabondage has released our new EP!!!! It's called Slow Room Bar and we wrote it while we were touring the Pacific Northwest a few years ago. Or rather, we had the adventures that informed the lyrics that made the songs on that tour. The songs themselves took a little more time to bake. So we added Sean (fiddle) and Scratch (junk percussion) to our line up, started woodshedding the songs live, and now, after a real professional recording session, after hiring the amazing artist Natalie Robles to draw the art, and after many hours of Scratch mixing, we can haz album. Hot damn is it good. You can listen / buy it here: http://vagabondage1.bandcamp.com/album/slow-room-bar.
Being the hilarious ride that my life is, Feral next gig is at a badass spoken word event. I LOVE IT WHEN MY WORLDS COLLIDE. Come on out for the beatnik cowboys country showdown.
May 3, 6pm, Stork Club in Oakland! \m/
[event details below]
The social and literary experiment IDENTITY CRISIS, hosted by Paul Corman-Roberts and Youssef Alaoui at the Stork Club, previously held in December 2013, was a blast.
Each participant reads the next in line. The last poet reads the first poet.
No one reads their own work.
The poems, fiction or prose focus on the topic of IDENTITY.
The end result is fascinating.
This show boasts a smash up of rockstar participants:
