I'm very excited to announce my first gig in Austin as a leader! (Not counting some stuff with Moosehound a couple years ago.) I'll be playing a set of my original tunes at the Ghost Room on Sunday, March 6th, and I'll have some really awesome players helping me out: Carter Arrington on guitar, Mike St.Clair on bass, and David Sierra on drums. I'll be playing tenor saxophone, probably with some pedals. There will be a couple other groups playing sets that night, as well, and I don't think there will be a cover charge... so you'll get lots of good music for your money. I'd love to see some people out supporting modern jazz in Austin, so please help spread the word, if you're feeling it!
Plenty of other gigs coming up over the next few weeks, too:
2/22: Schotzi's (inside), with Nelo acoustic, College Station, TX

As always, if you're out at a show or a gig, come say hi. Looking forward to playing with some good musicians over the next month.
