Good morning to you all,
Got back from tour not too long ago… and I just want to take a moment and thank everyone, who came out, gave shelter, gave food, and tapped their toes along with the music. I think I can safely say, I made some good friends and some good memories.
I hope you all are staying cool during this burst of heat here in the city or where ever you call home. Thought I would start June off with a quick little note to all of you and let you know whats cookin.
I’m happy to announce that The Bones of J.R. Jones will be playing the Northside Festival here in BK. The show will be at Pete’s Candy Store on June 16th. The howling will begin at 8:30 sharp.
I’m also very happy to announce two shows in LA! July 18th at The Echo and July 22nd at Hotel Cafe. These will be my first official performances on the West Coast! So get out to BOTH of the shows cause one sure as hell won’t be enough.
There are also some murmurings about a short film diving into the history of J.R. Jones and what happened to him. This one is a long way out… I still have to get up to my attic and dig through those old news paper clippings about it all.
And lastly, the site Nine Bullets just published a review of my album, The Wildeness. Nine Bullets is a great little site, that offers up reviews on albums and sports a radio show every Saturday. Be sure to take a listen.
Here is a little excerpt from the review:
“This is the People’s Music – brutal, honest, dirty, sometimes mean, but lovely all at the same time. This music can make you sweat, or it might be that it just helps you realize that your sins are what are making you sweat, but sometimes you have to let go and trust that the artist knows what he is doing. The Bones of J.R. Bones deserve your trust, and your time, and ultimately, your love and appreciation.”
Anyways, be sure to check out my show page for all updates. There are some great ones coming up. Including a couple with Melaena Cadiz and a street performance in the Meat Packing District. Please come on out and say hi. It would be good to see you.
