To everything, turn turn turn

Summer’s over, we’re surrounded by thoughts of the fall and I’m feeling optimistic. Our Tin Angel show was energized by lots of faces and a great opening set from our friends, Mr. Fuzzy & The Barbarian. Thank you guys for having adventurous, music-loving spirits and packing the house that night.

We also added a new member to the band this month. Leland Plumridge, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and world traveler is now handling the basslines for Bees In A Bottle.

He’s played a handful of shows with us now, so there are a bunch of good-looking, well-lit and badass pics of him emerging, but I keep reusing this one because, frankly, it makes me giggle.

Here’s something kinda cool:  A few months ago, one of my poems placed 4th in the MCCC Writers’ Club Annual Community Fiction & Poetry Contest. It was just printed in their latest edition of the Pen & Ink Times.  Like many things, it has since morphed into a Bees In A Bottle song, Close To The Shore. If you’d like to read it, click here.

Pics are up from the Sam Ash show. They were taken by Eric Ayers, graphic artist/photographer.

The next show is Saturday, Oct. 12th, 1:00 PM.  We’ll be doing a short set (1/2 hour or so) at the Schuylkill River Festival. It’s  held at Pottstown’s Riverfront Park and they’re advertising food venders, a beer garden, kayak rentals,  artists, crafters, live music, etc.

Just a few days later, Tuesday, Oct. 15th, 7:30 PM, we’ll be showcasing for the Philadelphia Songwriters’ Project at Jolly’s on Chestnut St, Philadelphia.  This will be a rare occasion to see an old school, stripped-down acoustic Christine & Chad set.  It’s a $5.00 ticket with a few other acts and after the show, there’s an open mic, so bring your music boxes.

PS: The more people come out to Jolly’s to support us, the greater our chances to be fast-tracked in the Philadelphia Song Contest for 2014!

See you soon,
