My boy Ben Shapiro last month discovered this incredible place in NYC's Chinatown, when 2 NYC cops found a loophole to sell discount cigarettes. I tagged along with ben's investigation.

It also features my debut as a hand model. Ja~

This is my favorite version of Horses I've ever played LIVE. Frankie nailed it on the Saxophone, the SAX sounds fucking amazing. Athens is a incredibly romantic city. I dream about the streets and buildings and corners and rooftops there, still. Amazing city with beautiful culture and people. I'm also a fan of rebetika, if you don't know what it is, you should check it out:

Below are the dates for the upcoming European tour, so glad to be back in Europe touring again. On this trip I will be joined by my friend Francesco De Gallo on Saxophone, who was just with me along with our friend Jesse (percussion) on this past North American tour with Frankie Rose. It was refreshing to play almost exclusively new material as a 3 piece unit, unfortunately due to my budget restraints, I could only afford to bring Francesco with me on this EU tour.
My camera also broke on the last american tour, so there are no pictures unfortunately, but it was a blast. Frankie and her crew were all sweethearts, and it was nice to have a little family on the road. One night we snuck 9 people into a road side motel and all slept in one room with sleeping bags and shit. We were like kids again. It felt great to have been on the road with Frankie Rose & The OUTS. High fives, hugs, and sadly we parted ways one by one. Goodbyes are always sad, but I know when I visit NY, I will see their faces again.
Can't wait to be back on the road in Europe
and play for you guys.
