Hi Everyone…(and welcome to the new members of this list!)
Ever think to yourself “There’s a word I’m searching for to describe Phil, but it just won’t come to me…?” Well wonder no more. That word is “urbane.”
I’m very pleased to have been chosen as the “Band of the Week” feature on BLOGCRITICS.ORG this week and I recently sat down for a lovely conversation and interview with the esteemed music writer A.L. Harper, whose recent interviews have included Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics fame), Razorlight, and hot new band Locksley. So read on and see why I’m called “urbane” and wonder, just like I did, what it means…

Thanks to A.L. for doing this! One of the nicest, more engaging and interesting people I’ve met in the business so far…
UPCOMING ROCK AND ACOUSTIC SHOWS:
TONIGHT!!! (if you read this today, of course…)
TUE. 11/21 Harper’s Ferry, Allston, MA 7pm
*** Rock ‘n Roll Speed Dating! It’s a speed-dating night for those that love live rock music. Come and watch me terrorize the daters in between songs by announcing things like “Excuse me ladies, but that gentleman over at table 12 is NOT single! I know that guy and he has a girlfriend…Yeah that’s right, that two-timing snake has a girlfriend!!!”
You might have to sign up ahead of time for this event.
***We will also be doing an encore performance set during the after-party, which is open to everyone (not just the speed daters). So come by for that! Harper’s Ferry is a great room with and superb sound. (And if it’s an “after-party,” you know R. Kelly gonna be there…)

As always, check the website for any updates, changes, additions, cancellations, addresses, links, and details of all the people on this mailing list who waited in line outside for PlayStation 3 or Nintendo Wii this past week (for themselves!). You all know who you are….and what’s it worth to you to keep it quiet???
CHICK SINGER NIGHT…:
…was all we hoped it would be! Thanks to those that came out and to those that didn’t, you missed one of the coolest shows we’ve played in a long time. Thanks to Jennifer Truesdale and Vykki Vox, the fabulous hostesses, for having us. I hoped we proved our manhood.
NEW “STORE” PAGE:
So you say you need something new to help you rock around the Christmas tree??? Or maybe something you can listen along to ALL 8 days of Hannukah (twice a day, even!) and not get sick of? Need the perfect shirt to help give you the “holiday urbane” look that’s so hot this year? Sick of staring at the Joey McIntyre poster on your closet door (as if!)?
