Buff Tom Shows and Residency for Bill

Thanks to everyone down in Australia who came out to see us. We had a great time playing and hanging out at Coogee Beach in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and the festival at Meredith. Saw my first wild koala. just hanging out. Backstage at the festival. Here is a pic from my Blackberry.



Also, here is a pic of Chris and Tom enjoying a buena vista:



Lastly, a pic of my son, Will, ready to rock breakbeat style:




We have some Buffalo Tom shows coming up starting this Friday, April 18 at the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA, the town where BT formed while at UMass. And, the venue is where we first performed at a folkie open mike night as the "Buffalo Tom Trio." This is true.

Next Friday, the 25th, we play the Paradise in Boston. It sold out last week. Thanks for purchasing tix early.

We are playing in Dublin at the Passenger Festival at the http://www.pod.ie/list_tripod.php on May 30, on our way to the Primavera Festival in Barcelona the next night. This, in my book, is not a bad way to spend a weekend. I don't take this sort of thing for granted.

We will also be playing fests in Belgium and Holland on a weekend in August. Check buffalotom.com for details

Finally, I have gotten back around to booking a month of Thursdays in June at Toad, Porter Sq., Cambridge, MA. Like 2 years ago, the core will be Matt and Phil from Crown Victoria, though sadly, our drummer, Tom Polce, is in LA. So it will b real revolving cast, a hootenanny, a Janon-nanny, if you will. Expected gusts include my soul sister, Chris Toppin. We wil spotlight the Show People CD which was a covert release still available on iTunes, CD Baby, etc.

If you will recall, in 2006, we had luminaries Theo Epstein and Eddie Vedder make a late night appearance for a 15-minute "Cortez the Killer," amongst other confections. Phil points out that Pearl Jam will be booked in Boston around June. As he said, "I'm just sayin'...."

Look for me on Facebook, all you "with it" kids.

Lovin' you is easy cause you're beautiful..do do do do do doooo laaaaaaaa,

Bill

looking forward to the residency and hope we can make it up there for one or two. will you play i've got a feeling? please?! the new t-shirt i got at the northampton show is great, was that a shot from shea???

Bill Janovitz said...

Yes indeed! Shea, 1986.

I had no idea you were there in Hamp! You are so stealthy.

Greg W said...

Pearl Jam huh?....I was kinda hoping, PJ would have you guys open a leg of their upcoming tour. A kind of reverse time warp thing.

camille said...

i was thinking shea circa '65, but shea '86 wasn't so bad either.

dan said...

Shea 86?? A Freudian slip that clearly shows your difficulty of letting things go...geez, even the Fenway faithful let Buckner off the hook this year...

Last September was awesome for Mets fans.

Bill, I read your post and am SO envious of those in OZ and Europe who have had the good fortune of seeing BT perform. *sigh* I'm still pining for the day when I get to see you guys play. I know I've said this before, but please consider coming to western Canada someday.

I'll be in Madison WI in mid-May, NYC from 20-25 June (big Steely Dan blow-out party and stuff), and I keep checking Pollstar hoping you'll be in such places when I'm there. LOL!

Love the picture of Will, he looks so much like you.

I'll be in Boston the week after US Thanksgiving. I will look all over town for BT/CV/BJ activity. Maybe a jam somewhere? (Please forgive me, I do dream, you know.)

The Paradise show last week was a thing of beauty. Looking foward to the June residency. What prompted this comment? "Your Stranger's Face" just popped up on my iPod as I sat here. So thanks for that, too.

Earthdog70 said...

Thanks for the info Bill. Looks like I will not be in Boston until July, maybe a repeat performance in Wellfleet? You guys should do a double bill with The Freeze!

Bill - caught the BT show in Brooklyn earlier in the year. What a show! My brother in law and I had a chance to sneak backstage afterwards but alas the moment was missed. You lost out on an opportunity to hang out with 2 married guys in their mid-30's panting like girls seeing the Beatles at Shea Stadium while pestering you to explain obscurities like "Never Noticed" & completely ignoring your obvious exhaustion.

I mean, Barcelona and Dublin are nice and all, but Larry and I had some really great questions for you. Don't feel bad, maybe next time

Thanks,

Christopher
