I’m playing a show on December 1st at The Lost Church with my dear friend Myrrh Larsen, and you all should come.

I imagine this set will be full of things you haven’t heard from me in a long time as well as things you’ve never heard before.

Also this is my favorite venue in SF right now, and it’s only got 50 seats!
They assure me that the link for presale tickets will be up at really soon, so check there to see if you can get tickets ahead of time.

It would really mean a lot to me if you’d come.

You guys, things have been rough in Starland.

& I suspect they’ll get worse before they get better.

I’m trying though- harder than I think I’ve ever tried at anything.

Here is a cell phone picture of a laptop screen, editing the Show and Tell video.

The raw footage is something I’m really, really excited about.

I’m hoping to screen it at the show we have at The Lost Church on December 1st, which you should come to.

I could really use the support right now.

Things are going to change soon. I’m not sure how yet, but I know that they will.

Here’s to hoping that it’s for the better.

Stay tuned for more behind the scenes stuff coming up next week!

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of This Can’t End Well’s brand new music video!
It is coming out TOMORROW!

Just to get you properly excited, I have a couple preview stills and some behind the scenes photos for you!

The above images are stills from the video, by the directors Chad Michael Ward and Niko Sonnberger.
I have a whole lot to say about working with these lovely folks, but I’m going to save that for after you can actually see the video!!
Suffice to say they are awesome, and professional- awesomely professional!

Here are a couple shots from behind the scenes- so you have a teaser of what’s to come.
Our lovely Violist Kristen shot the ones of me, and I shot the rest!

Come back tomorrow to see these pictures MOVE!

I am beyond excited to tell you that This Can’t End Well is playing this year’s Noisepop festival!
Thanks to James from Isotope Comics, we were paired up with Ted Naifeh to put on a full scale radio play production of his comic, Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things.
I am playing the role of Courtney, so I have some big shoes to fill!

This thing is going to seriously rule- we’ll be doing a few songs, the very first Courtney story with voice actors/live foley, hilarious fictional commercials, and visuals by our lovely projectionist, Mediapathic.

Also? It’s FREE.

Seriously, be there.

I recently took a trip down to Los Angeles with my bandmate Kristen, so we could shoot a music video for the first single on our upcoming EP!
It was directed by the amazing and talented team of Chad Michael Ward and Niko Sonnberger.

I’m going to give the video it’s own post, so you can get a sneak peek of what Chad and Niko have planned for your eyeballs. Also, there will be a bunch of behind the scenes video and other goodness after it actually comes out!

Before all the excitement of working on the video, though, we had to drive all our gear down to LA, and get checked into our hotel.

We stayed at The Standard– which is basically my favorite hotel in Hollywood.

They will deliver booze-filled milkshakes TO YOUR ROOM.
If somebody can make that happen at my house, I would pay good money. Just saying.

They also have a pretty excellent restaurant in the lobby that’s open all night.
Behold it’s cuteness as we frantically drink coffee and decide what foods we ought to nom:

Tune in later this week for part 2: Our visit to Pygmy Hippo Shoppe!
