On Tour w/ Tim Lowly Ensemble

I'm currently on tour with the Tim Lowly Ensemble and headed for the East Coast. It feels good to be playing with great musicians in a bunch of cities across the upper East end of the country, in cities I've toured before. Our music is fairly mellow and simple, yet there are some really great musicians backing Tim with really amazing arrangements. Kind-of a fusion of folk and classical, but then classify it into a particular genre, is like trying to pick a BJCP beer style for one of your homebrews...ya know?

This time around, there are some differences to the punk rock tours of the past. Since there's a handful of artists with us, we'll be visiting some art museums as well. I have a much bigger interest in finding indigenous brews from Eastern breweries. I hope to hook up with a couple blogging brewers. I also look forward to connecting with people who come out to our shows.

For those reading this, and living in and around the cities/venues we're playing, I invite you and your friends out for a night of good music in a relaxed setting. I'd also like to meet other brewers across the country. At the same time, I'd love to get feedback on the best pubs for local beer (especially close to a venue), and would love some local brewer company. So, please let me know if you will be coming out, and if you have any recommendations for the good beer bars/pubs & maybe even brewpubs...773.655.34.63. Thanks.

Ted...two place I can't believe I forgot to mention in Boston.....One is Cambridge Brewing Co. This is probably the best brewpub in the Boston area. I don't get there often, but I'm always impressed with thier beers. Also, a boston staple, is Boston Beer Works. There are two in Boston, one right next to Fenway Park and one accross the street from the Boston Garden on Canal Street. Canale Street isn't far from where you'll be, so that might be a good option. I'm hoping I get to come in and meet you!

While you are in New York City, I would recommend McSorely's Ale House. There is only 2 beers on tap, one a porter and the other a standard ale, and both made by Pabst Brewing. But don't be fooled, this place has been around for over 150 years and is just amazing to drink a beer in. Plus, the beer is actually very good.
