September News

Hello everyone,

September is here, and Nathan Hamilton has this to share about its arrival:

One of my all time favorite albums is "Secrets of the Beehive" by David Sylvian.  I have followed all of Sylvian's work to date but it is this album I visit most frequently. That is partly due to an admittedly romantic ritual I have been practicing annually since it's release almost thirty years ago. The record starts with a short poem of a song entitled "September”.    The music and lyrics immediately set the mood and tone for the imagery and sonic journey to follow.
 "The sun shines high above
The sounds of laughter
The birds swoop down upon
The crosses of old grey churches
We say that we're in love
While secretly wishing for rain
Sipping coke and playing games

September's here again
September's here again"

The song is less than a minute and a half.
It takes me longer to fire up the stereo, remove the album from its jacket and sleeve and place it on the turntable.
But this little ritual observed every first day of the ninth calendar month brings with it a collection of memories and a point of reflection on time passed. It's a simple thing. A seasonal transition regardless of weather. A mindful acknowledgement.
September's here again.

We've told you a lot about David Berkeley's latest project The Free Brontosaurus and Cardboard Boat (a book of short stories and an album of accompanying songs - one for each story).  If you don't know what we mean, check out this beautiful web page about the project.   Well, he's now released the project in audiobook form, so that you hear the song right after you hear the story . David reads the final piece, but the others are read by an amazing cast of songwriters including Dan Bern, Vienna Teng, Garrison Starr, Natalia Zukerman and Kim Taylor. Check it out here.
Beaver Nelson’s latest CD “Positive” was released at the end of last month - he is touring much of this month and next, Austin CD release is September 16. 

Matt The Electrician releases his fourth 7" - 45rpm vinyl record this month.  Austin release show is September 3, and Matt then hits the westerly road with his trio for most of this month.
David Berkeley & Raina Rose will be playing the Kerrville Fall Festival September 3-4 weekend.  

Several artists on the roster will be playing The Front Porch's Pub Church in Austin through the end of the year, BettySoo kicks it off on September 11.  

All of these shows and more roster dates below.  As always, please go to each artist's site for more specific details.  
Thanks for reading, we hope to see you at some shows this month!
