03 Jul
BT at colony cafe

Thanks to all who came out to the Colony Cafe in Woodstock last night for an evening of musical mayhem with two geniuses named Brian Dewan and Jed Davis… plus little ol’ me. And thanks again to Brian and Jed for havin’ me. PS: Speaking of Woodstock, here’s a little something from almost exactly 10 […]

Fly Pow-Pow

I will be opening for John Powhida International Airport at Toad in Cambridge Thursday evening. And getting my ass handed to me, no doubt.

I’m playing in Woodstock this weekend – a short set as part of the Colony Cafe’s Second Sunday Songwriters Series, with Patrick Fitzsimmons (From Good Homes) and our fearless host/leader Carl Bethge. Q&A on songwriting immediately following our sets. The fun starts at 7. Five tiny dollars gets you in. See ya there? Cheers, B.

'I don't want to see you again'

Tess gets the last word in today’s Times Union: [Tess] Collins, the refreshingly blunt owner of Tess’ Lark Tavern in Albany, cares deeply for her customers; she loves to make them happy with food and drink. She’s liberal with beverage rounds on the house, has used past customer complaints as suggestions to improve business and […]
