After seventeen years, eleven part-time jobs, ten apartments, six albums, three vans, two EPs, a stolen blue Honda Civic, and one true love, I’m packing it up and moving west. I’ve accepted a graduate assistantship and scholarship from the University of Idaho’s MFA program in poetry and am moving to Moscow to study, write and teach as a TA in the Department of English. Risking sentimentality (haven’t I always?), it’s gonna be hard to leave you. I’m gonna miss your face and all our time. In the only way I know how, I’m saying goodbye with two Chicago shows: May 27 (solo) at The Hideout and July 7 (full-band) at Schubas. I hope you’ll join me for one or both of these and that we can talk a bit and have a beer. Thanks for being my home for so long. The love letter doesn’t end here, I’m just changing pens.
