The latest...

Alright, so now that the new year is settling in, I figured I should lay some updates on ya.

First up is the DIRE WOLVES mini-tour. For those that haven't heard about us yet, Dire Wolves is a blown-out improv psych unit in the Amon Duul II/Trad Gras Och Stenar/heavy cosmic groove vein of things. It consists of myself (Mr. McDowell), Ian Bonnett (Great Blue Heron), Jeffrey Alexander (Black Forest/Black Sea, Secret Eye, Iditarod, etc...), and Dan Letson (Forest Dweller). So far we've only played a handful of local shows with the likes of Marble Sheep, Black Pus, OvO, Subarachnoid Space, Plastic Crimewave, yada-yada-yada, so we're excited to take it on the road finally. Our double cassette is long gone, but expect a new cassette on Dynamo Sound and an LP on Last Visible Dog soon. Anyway, we have some East Coast dates coming up very soon.

Fri. 2/5 - Philly @ The Crooked Shoe w/ Kutschty Rye Ergot (ex-Kohoutek) & Lux Diffusion
Sat. 2/6 - Providence @ AS220 w/ Arcing, Alec K Redfearn & the Eyesores, Bellows, Hector 3...
Sun. 2/7 - Brooklyn @ Zebulon w/ Samara Lubelski/Pete Nolan & Marc Orleans/Steve Gunn
Wed. 2/10 - Pittsburgh @ MoGlo w/ Theo Angell (ex-Jackie-O-Motherfucker)

WaterFinder will be playing at Morning Glory in Pittsburgh as part of Mike Tamburo's Voyagers festival, March 6-7. Other acts include Mr. Tamburo himself, R. Keenan Lawler, Eric Carbonara, Enumclaw, and a crapload of others.

Sagas is currently working on an LP for Pete Fosco's new label, Greenup St. Industries. More on that soon.

Well, that's about it for now. Stay warm.
