Show Poem: Rainbows follow the rain… June 26 / Rochester, NY /Meddlesome Lab #SchwervonPoetry

Wide mouth water jar
Helping the pills go in
A map of the world
Forms on your back
And the ocean highway
Speaks to you again
In long bows stretched
Across slow sandy waves

Glass clickers and lawn darts
Helmetless heads and
Painted plates
Nighttime sounds of tiny pebbles
Under footsteps

I can benefit from a
Battle that is not mine
Striking hammers
Are what make the piano sound

Learning that you didn’t
Lose everything
In the fire

“No stick no cage
No electric shock”

Rainbows follow the rain
And rain makes things wet and soft
Keeps things alive
It also makes mud
That looks like Chocolate pudding

We have grown to see
All the colors
Colors are in the eyes
The Eyes appear clear and wide

Soft pink, purple, orange
Scarves hang in front
Of the windows
They soften the light
They add something

Summer Sun Tour 2012: Buffalo, Rochester

IMG_2232Had an incredible all ages dance party at The Vault in Buffalo two nights ago. Thanks to Settlers and the amazing Jack Toft for shooting the breeze and getting down with us. Also big thanks to Aimee, Joel, and Joe for letting us crash in their very comfortable living room.

IMG_2236And big ups to Roland, my sleeping buddy in Buffalo. You are like a well adjusted Gummo and almost as attractive.

Last night we reunited with our old friend Seth Faergolzia for a relaxing house show at Meddlesome Lab  in Rochester. His latest project, 23 Pssagz, is not to be missed. The night was rounded out nicely by locals The Sleep Soundlies and Brain Blatt’s (Gaybot, DUFUS) awesome new project: A Victory For Upfish. Also great to meet Laura and get in a little butterfly hunting with Anouk before hitting the road again.
