    Atlanta, GA!
    This next Saturday (the 25th), as some of you might know is going to be the CD release Party for Michael Levine's latest effort: 'Lines Between Us' at the Hard Rock Cafe's live venue ('Velvet Underground').

    Michael is going to start out doing his Solo electronic-looping set at 9pm and then Kevin Leahy (www.kevinleahy.com) and I are going to join him (as The Michael Levine Band, www.michaellevine.net) for 2 sets starting at 10pm. This is going to be a great show, with a few talented surprise guests to sit in and perform with us…

    So, if you aren't busy that evening, we really could use your support.

    I included details on this gig below.

    All the best,

    Small follow up....


    The Michael Levine Gig/CD release Party was a blast!!!! Everything went as planned, except for the cello player coming up to stage a couple tunes too early, but that was minor...

    There were cats from Shut Eye Records bouncing around. Many women. About 200 people.

    The Stage sound was amazing, Lighting show was explosive and the video projection art was 'trippy' (a little distracting at times, but cool).

    Here are a couple shots from that evening... alot of the ones that Jami took were really dark.

    Oh yeah and the other two gigs that weekend were ok, too!... 'The Subject' jazz gig at Red Light Cafe on Friday night wasn't the best one I have had with them, but it was a last minute gig. The Saturday Afternoon gig that I had before the Mike Levine gig, ended with just enough time to fly down 75 south to Downtown for the soundcheck and to change clothes... Just as planned!

    This is from above:


    This party is going to be the bomb, there are a bunch of bands playing... two stages, one inside and one outside. The bash is going to be at Mulligans in Decatur. Check the URL (www.halloweenatlanta.com) for details and directions!!!



    About the hat... Well I have been almost too busy with gigs, day job and such that I haven't picked out my costume, so I might end up wearing the same again this year...
