20th anniversary performance of Box Car Racer 

Summer 2022 is around the corner and I can not wait! New shows are being added weekly. I'll be performing this Summer with SEMPLE Band, Cat Like Thief, Suit Up, Sk8er Boyz, and solo acoustic performances. The last public SEMPLE band show of May is next weekend at a new venue. Then Keith will be heading back out for another tour with The Cyberiam. The following week I am beyond excited to perform the entire Box Car Racer album on the actual 20th anniversary of its release! Check out Cat Like Thief performing Box Car Racer Saturday May 21st at 115 Bourbon Street. See you all soon!

The return of live music isn't over yet 

Hey friends. Thank you so much for making this year so much better than the last. 2020 is a year better forgotten, but I never could have expected the gracious response we have gotten with the return of live music this Summer. You all have made me feel missed, and I appreciate that very much. I just added a bunch of new shows. Be sure to double check the calendar as some dates have changed. Let's close this season out with a bang!
