so i finally head out tomorrow for the fabled land of NY and ATP. . .the line-up for this one is KILLER (www.atpfestival.com) and i honestly can't wait to play some crazy TOD rock again. . .too bad Mr. Jay Leo won't be able to join us. . .i miss that guy's face (smoochies Jay!) and can't wait to rock it with him either!
plans are in the works for multiple things on the music front. . .right after ATP i do a week tour with Bobby Bare Jr. from DC down to Austin for the ACL festival and then we start practicing up for the big Ryman extravaganza with the Drive-By Truckers, The Hold Steady and BBJ. . .THEN, TOD cranks back up with a Texas mini-tour playing Dallas, Houston, Austin and Fun Fun Fun Fest and 2 shows in Los Angeles (not in TX) before coming home for the year. once i'm back here there will be a gathering of the troops for some LONG LONG overdue Sincerity Guild recording/playing and a possible foray into SALT land with Forget Cassettes. . .pack some fishing into that and a trip to Puerto Rico for the New Year and you've got yourself one busy Fordsie. . . .hahaha!
i hope all is well with you and yours and i hope to see you all really really soon!!!
