flashback: MISO 

Playing the Planet 9 theme last year with MiamiSymphony - written by the one and only Eduardo Marturet - was so cool, and a true honor. Tune in to their YouTube channel this Sunday to check it out, and show your support for their Herculean efforts.

T minus 1 week 

One week from today - Dec. 7 at 7pm - the one & only Prof. Julia R Greer, the illustrious Dr. Lucy Jones, and yours truly + Erik Petigura will join forces and play music at Caltech Beckman auditorium. This. Is. Not. A. Drill. 

Come for the free concert, and stay for the 1946 holiday classic "It's a Wonderful Life" directed by Caltech alumnus Frank Capra (BS 1918) afterwards. 

We even practiced a little bit... 


Caltech Live! 

Friends -- we are stoked to announce that we will be joining the lineup of acts on this year's Caltech Live! series. Our show will take place on December 7th at the legendary Beckman auditorium (more specific details to follow). Unlike our usual shows, this one will be in an acoustic format. We will be joined by the world-famous seismologist Lucy Jones on the gamba and material science rock star Julia Greer on the piano. No, this is not a drill. 

E and I went on a run along the LA river yesterday and decided on a setlist. It’s gonna feature some of the usual stuff you might have heard live, as well as at least one new song. Can’t wait!

I would like to thank, from the bottom my heart, everyone who came out to our show at the West Cross Station in Ann Arbor area a few days ago. It was absolutely special for us to see so many of you show your support so far away from our home-base.

Plus, we got to jam on-stage with Fred Adams - he's a total legend!


It's at this point common knowledge that Eduardo Marturet is the coolest symphony conductor in the history of all time. I'm still mystified by the manner in which he is able to hide the musical structure beneath the melody, such that you don't notice how time-signatures and keys change. Drop-dead amazing.

It was a tremendous honor to play with the Miami Symphony a couple weeks ago. Still recovering from the experience. What I absolutely didn't expect, however, is that I would (ever in my life) end up opening for El Puma... A couple pix from the performance below.

Miami 2.0 

Playing with the Miami Symphony at the Mystery of Genius event was an absolutely amazing experience. To simply say that Maestro Eduardo Marturet is a musical genius would be the understatement of the century - he is both an amazing composer and a genuinely remarkable conductor. Eduardo has kindly invited me back to play with the symphony again on the 22nd March. I am deeply honored, and eagerly look forward to it. Gonna be so much fun!

Last night, I practiced the part I'm gonna play with the MISO this Thursday for the thousands time and officially decided it's time to pack up. I listened back later to my overdub of the stunningly awesome symphony part that Maestro Eduardo Marturet had prepared. It flows beautifully, but only when off-beat timing is spot on. And counting doesn't help - just gotta feel it. Would I have liked to practice for another ~month to make sure my part is spotless? Yes. But the shape it's in right now is not half bad, and there is something quintessentially rock'n'roll about the occasional sloppy note...

This morning at the airport, I put every Fragile sticker I could lay my hands on, onto the amp. But then, looking out of the window of my plane seat, I saw dudes in United hats throw my amp onto the conveyer belt. If it breaks mid-flight I'm goin postal!
