Here's a few upcoming events I'd like you to know about.
First, Hudson Valley native guitar player Alexander Turnquist will be opening for post rock band Slow Six on Thursday, September 9 at Club Helsinki in Hudson, NY. It's a bit of a drive for most of my listeners, and it's a Thursday night, but it's going to be a great show. For more info, go to Alexander's website:
Second, there's another great show coming up in the One Thousand Pulses concert series hosted by Darren Bergstein at his home in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey. Coming up on Saturday, September 18 is a concert with ambient musician Jason Sloan. I'm really looking forward to this one. For more info, check out the One Thousand Pulses website:
Also in September is the return of the annual Electro-Music festival. This year it's September 10-12 in the town of Huguenot, New York, which is close to Port Jervis. This is always a lot of fun, with tons of performances and workshops covering the gamut of electronic music. Expect to see me there with tons of CD's in hand.

And last but certainly not least, WVKR is having its annual pledge drive in early September, right after Labor Day. WVKR is a non-commercial station that relies on listener donations to keep things running. If you're a label or musician, please show your support by donating CD's or other such things we can use as premiums for listener donations. If you're a listener, please listen in during my part of the fundraiser, Sunday, September 12, and call in and pledge your support for our station. We couldn't keep going without your help. Feel free to email me if you have any questions. Thanks.
