Peter Buck 2 nighter in Portland next week
Presenting for your enjoyment TWO nights of entertainment magic at the Secret Society, Portland's mystical cocktail and music emporium.

Your senses will be assuaged and/or assaulted by the beguiling sounds of PETER BUCK, the band comprising Peter Buck, Bill Rieflin, Kurt Bloch and Scott McCaughey in all their sartorial glory. In case you missed it, there will be copies o'plenty of the latest vinyl-only waxing BACK TO BLOW YOUR MIND ONCE AGAIN readily available for purchase (and subsequent auction on eBay).

As a once-in-a-lifetime comet-like treat, the attendee will also be privy to the debut performance(s) of (currently-monikered) super-Earth, featuring the above-named minstrels (in the gallery) and CORIN TUCKER, performing an entire set of soon-to-be-album-sized new compositions by said Buck/Tucker combine.

Really, you can hardly go wrong with this scenario. And being Tuesday / Wednesday nights, the music will start at 8 p.m., and there will be deathly silence by 10:30 p.m. or so; therefore none need be deprived of that Top-Three-Element-Of-Life-Contender: sleep.

Friday March 7: THE MINUS 5 - Doug Fir Lounge, Portland. 9 p.m.
With The My Oh Mys and Deepest Darkest. It's a Friday, it's the Doug Fir, it's the Minus 5!!! We hit the trifecta!

March 25: Release date of the new BASEBALL PROJECT "3rd" album on Yep Roc Records!
It's our best yet, with Mike Mills joining me, Steve, Linda and Peter on the permanent roster. 18 big songs on CD and double LP, check the Yep Roc website for pre-order bundles and all that kind of stuff. http://www.yeproc.com/the-baseball-project-3rd-now-available-for-pre-orde

April 12: NRBQ Tribute Show - Royal Room, Seattle WA.

April 18: THE MINUS 5 - The Off Broadway, St. Louis MO.
We kick off a big big weekend with a show in a super cool club I haven't played since 1988, when Uncle Tupelo opened for the Young Fresh Fellows. No kidding.
It'll be a reuniting of the line-up that blew up the Yep Roc 15 Year Anniversary shows in Chapel Hill a while back. Super boss rock, for sure.

April 19: Record Store Day release of THE MINUS 5 - "Scott The Hoople In The Dungeon Of Horror"
That's right, it's the new album, a five-LP limited edition vinyl only box set. 57 new songs, specifically and scientifically designed for your listening pleasure. To celebrate we'll also be playing a live mini-set at fabled Euclid Records in St. Louis.

April 26: THE MINUS 5 - Live Wire, Alberta Rose Theater, Portland OR.
Always a great time and loads of talent amassed on this live radio show for Oregon Public Broadcasting. http://www.livewireradio.org

April 29/30: PETER BUCK - Secret Society, Portland OR.
Peter, Kurt, Bill and I settle in for a two-night stand that is sure to be historic. As a bonus you get the special guest debut of shadowy combo super-Earth.

May 23: THE MINUS 5 - Tractor Tavern, Seattle WA.
More details on this as they become known. Suffice to say, it's going to be loud soft and brackish.
