Thats Mark Brotter being attacked by some crazy little dog in the picture:
Well, I hope you didn't drive to Phila to see me with Matt Keating because I wasn't there. I was teaching upstate and then playing for the people with Jan Bell at Superfine. Its been very busy for me these days so the crazy long drive to Narrowsburg was kinda relaxing. I listened to hours of Sinatra from his capitol years. That music is so strong. I find myself coming back to it all the time. Like Beethoven's 7th with all that trancendent joy pouring into that heartbreaking adagio and then rocking out by the end.
Anyhoo..... tonight (friday 12/15) I'm in Blauvelt,NY with "The New Romans". Its near Nyack.
