We’re here, at CatBeach Studios, in Los Angeles, working ourselves to the bone on Casey Black’s new full-length album. By ‘working ourselves to the bone’, we mean, achieving the perfect clap-tones, scheduling our favorite pedal steel wizard, and stacking octaves of bgv’s. Oh and did we mention trumpets…we need trumpets!!
While we keep ourselves busy with these complicated details, Casey is back in the big city for his final summer as a resident of the fine state of New York. He and his lovely, Mrs. Molly Black, are packing up their household and moving it down to Nashville for a new adventure (adventure…so unusual for these two…). But before their grand farewell takes place, Casey is going to play a couple shows that seriously, you don’t want to miss. I’m not just saying this. If you saw him play last month at our party, you know what I’m saying. This guy has some mean songs to share….like some jaw-dropping songs…
So check it out. If you are anywhere near NYC in the next couple of weeks, here are your assignments:
1. Find air-conditioning. ‘Cause c’mon…NYC in the middle of summer!? bleh.
2. GO to the Big City Folk Festival at the on Sunday, July 22. The day will be filled with the fine artists who make up the Big City Folk Collective. ‘What is the Big City Collective’ -you ask? Check it out here: VZ Magazine – Big City Folk Collective.
3. GO to The Living Room on Wednesday, July 25 at 7pm. ‘Nuff said. Just Go.
4. Find air-conditioning. Stay there until the summer passes.
For those of you who do make it out to one of these shows…we are really really really jealous of you. We sorta hate you. We are currently looking online for ‘blue-light-special’ on flights.
Any benefactors with a private jet out there? …Anyone??
