our lovely friend and well-loved singer-songwriter, danny schmidt, will be traveling around these parts soon with his sweetie and fellow musician, carrie elkin.

we first discovered danny at a happy birthday house show (aamaco house) on the corner of mt. clinton pike and chicago in 2000 or so.  since then, we’ve spread the good word to west coast and beyond.  and followed him to random shows in small venues & seattle warehouses, drinking red wine out of mason jars.  last summer, we were happy guests in his austin, tx home.  we almost got to meet carrie, but were forced to get back on the road instead of going to a texas swimming hole.  sigh.

at any rate.  you should certainly get out to one of these shows:
