This has been an amazing month. I was allowed the opportunity to book an entire run of shows at one of the prettiest venues in town, the Aster Cafe on the Minneapolis Riverfront.
There isn’t a sweeter little spot to gather and play. Each week has been an opportunity to invite special guests and try out new ideas.
I tried to have fun with it and give each week a theme. April Fools day, Birthday show!! (Happiest night of my year so far), Tax day!! Earth day (We played as a trio to save some electricity!, and we’ll wrap things up with a full band show next week with Mother Banjo opening.
It’s been a blast and I cannot thank the Aster enough. The staff is so welcoming and encouraging. Not a bad looking bunch either, and if you pay close attention you might even spot a rock star or two waiting on you : )
My goal this year has been to try new things. A residency is always a little nuts as you have to promote more than usual and then hope for the best! Special thanks to those of you that have attended every, or almost every show! I know that isn’t easy.
My other big news right now is that real progress is being made on the new video PEARL. This song has already been played a few times on both The Current and KFAI (Thank you) and the video is looking incredible.
Hard copies of Lily/Pearl available at shows and they are also on itunes.
I have one more day of filming and then we’ll start to piece it all together. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen!
Thank you all and please come next Wednesday night (April 29th) if you can.
Select Summer shows are now being finalized but other than that it’s all hands on deck to finish the record.
Happy Friday, Katy x
