I’m currently locked down in a Chicago hotel, digging through e-mails and catching-up on some sleep. Last night I spent my morning driving from St. Louis up to Rock Island, Illinois to visit with the music blog Daytrotter. I’d been looking forward to visiting with Daytrotter for a long time, and was glad I could make it work with this Midwest tour. If you are not familiar with their music blog, you should go check it out here: http://www.daytrotter.com. If you are a music fan, I’m sure you will find dozens (if not hundreds) of artists you like that have sessions posted.
I had some hurdles along the way to make this happen, namely a small blizzard I drove through about halfway up Illinois. I counted a half-dozen spun out cars along I-74 alone. With the reality of needing to beat darkness and more snow on my route to Chicago, I spent far less time enjoying Rock Island than I had initially hoped for. My in-studio show will be posted in a few weeks and I’ll make sure to throw the links on here in good time.
Tonight I’ll be playing in Chicago at Uncommon Ground. They have 2 locations, the original being a relatively well-known restaurant and intimate music venue. They expanded to a 2nd location in historic Edgewater a few years back and that’s where I’ll be playing tonight at 9 PM. It’s a brisk 18 degrees out by the way.
