on the old Arms Aloft agenda..... 3-week U.S. tour run with Kevin Seconds, Kepi Ghoulie, Franz Nicolay and select dates with Vic Ruggiero (The Slackers) and a new compilation CD called 'Roll Over, Pretty'.

the compilation will be available for sale on the Arms Aloft tour.
CORRECTION: Vic Ruggiero will NOT be playing the shows in Asbury Park and Baltimore. he has gigs with the Slackers those nights. i'm sorry for the confusion, peoples.
In 2008, after playing amazing shows with the likes of Kepi Ghoulie, Chuck Ragan, Tim Barry, Jesse Michaels, Mike Park, Joey Cape and Jon Snodgrass, I stewed on the idea of organizing a traveling roadshow where I'd connect with a bunch of my favorite singer-songwriters from the punk rock community and hit the road, playing in any city, town and burg that would have us.
I had a plan as to who i would ask and how it would run, I even had a name for roadshow and I started talk...ing to various people with varying degrees (mostly positive) of interest.
Chuck Ragan's Revival Tour had really started to take shape and before long, I put my admittedly high-fallutin' idea on the back burner and kept myself busy with touring, writing and recording on my own and with various other singer-songwriters, including Vic Ruggiero, Mike Hale, Brian Hanover, Mike Scott and Andrew Jackson Jihad.
All throughout last year, I couldn't stop thinking about making this traveling community happen and finally, after everything slowed down around the holidays, I started planning my moves for the new year, 2012.
Well, it's 2012 and I have decided to make this project happen. I am very excited to introduce to you, what will be the first in a long run of exciting and high quality roadshows , featuring some of my very favorite musical artists on the planet.
I'm calling it the Arms Aloft Social & Musical Roadshow and it will make it's debut on March 8th when Kepi Ghoulie and I play our tour kickoff show in our hometown, Sacramento, California, at the Javalounge. We will embark on a 3-week tour of the Midwestern and Eastern part of the United States, along the way, hooking up with Franz Nicolay and Vic Ruggiero.
I couldn't be more excited!
