DAY TWO-HUNDRED AND THIRTY ONE

How does one wake up from sleeping feeling melancholy?  It’s just sleep.  That’s all it is.  It was even a dreamless sleep.  Profoundly confounding.

I tried a bunch of stuff this morning.  I even got out my accordion after a million years of not playing it.  I recorded several different things, but The Melancholy didn’t want anything.  So I did this in three tracks, largely improvisational.  Reverb.  Lots of reverb makes things better sometimes, too.

PEARL AND THE BEARD “40K” VIDEO RELEASE TODAY

Pearl and the Beard released a zombie video today.  It is premiering on WNYC’s Soundcheck.  We’re very excited, and we hope you like it.  You can watch it here.  You know what eats away melancholy?  A zombie.

Pearl and the Beard is opening for Ani DiFranco in NYC

And to top it all off – we are completing the last two days of our amazing tour with the stunning Ani DiFranco today and tomorrow.  She’s leaving the road for a while, so if you’ve ever wanted to see her, now is your chance.  If you’re in or have friends in the New York City area, there are still tickets available for tomorrow night’s (11/17) Town Hall show in Manhattan.   Ticket link here.  (Tickets for tonight’s show (11/16) at Music Hall of Williamsburgh are sold out!)

    A question that has haunted me for ages! I hate waking up feeling sad for no reason. It’s the worst. Hope you’re feeling a bit better today *hug*
