From high atop a stool at a bar at a coffee shop at the corner of Vanderbilt Ave. and Prospect Pl. in Brooklyn, the news:
Firstly, if you happen to find yourself in Brooklyn this evening, why not support the relief effort in Japan and receive some live music for your troubles? My (Chris Thile's) pals Hilary Hahn and Josh Ritter, and I are doing a benefit at Galapagos in DUMBO for people exactly like you! Doors open at 8:00, and the show starts at 9:00. Tickets are still available.
Nextly, something high and lonesome this way comes! Michael Daves' and my first duo record, Sleep With One Eye Open, arrives on May 10th and is available HERE for preorder. Anyone who preorders the album or downloads the free track "My Little Girl in Tennessee" below will be entered to win a Martin 000X1AE acoustic guitar. The album release brings with it a whole slew of tour dates.
Finally, as Spring Training draws to a close, I'd like to wish your team the very best this season, insofar as it doesn't compromise my team's season. Go Cubs!
Chris, Noam, Critter, Paul, and Gabe
