Drumming updates!

I know it's been a bit, but I've been super busy with lots of stuff! I've been drumming my little heart out =) So you know I've been taking drum lessons...and my instructor is in the band Djinn.

Well I've played with them a few times now...and have invites to do it again =) I'm super psyched about this...but I think the best is that they want us (my class) to join them at their CD release party on 9/20/09 which is going to be held at Galapagos Art Space.

How freaking cool is that!!!!

Drumming in a couple of shows... much has happened since I last posted...and I don't have the time to recap right now, BUT...I'm drumming in a show tonight at Je'bon and Saturday at Le Poisson Rouge!!!

See info below!

Hope to see you there =)

Excerpt from Djinn's weekly newsletter:
As a young independent republic, Slovenia pursued economic stabilization and further political openness, while emphasizing its Western outlook and central European heritage. Today Slovenia plays a role on the world stage quite out of proportion to its small size. This week we're featuring one of Slovenia's most treasure exports, Ksenija. In addition to the Slovenian representation we'll have more dancers then people who live in Brad's hometown of Kalamazoo plus our special guest musician, Satoru, on trumpet.
