New Year, New Live Album, New Live Dates

“Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again , come , come.”   –Rumi

Happy New Year!! On this last day of 2013, I am happy to present a new live album for download and stream here:
These tracks were recorded live on February 17th, 2013 in front of a packed room of pre-President’s Day revelers, with the band in fine form.  Enjoy, listen, download, play it for friends…make it yours.
If you’d like to revel with us in the flesh, there are several great opportunities coming up in NYC and Philly.  I hope to see you all there!
Check out the Tour page for details, or see below.
Love,
Elijah

Devil Songs! Costumes! Guests! and GREAT SOUND (Live this Thursday at Rockwood Music Hall)

Devils and Dolls,

 
You are cordially invited to join me and my minions as we delve deep in dulcet devilry this Thursday, 6/6 at 6pm (get it?)
 
We will take the stage at Rockwood Music Hall in a special early evening performance to bring you songs looking at the Devil and Hell from a variety of perspectives.
 
Joining me will be Bill Bell, Josh Reid, Jessie Kilguss, Jent LaPalm, Joel Arnow and more guests to be announced.  There will be costumes, there will be screeching, there will be love and there will be spooks.  
 
This concert is not for the easily disturbed, but instead for those curious about what lurks in the free dark hearts of those most alive among us.
 
Join us, my pretties
 
Thursday, 6/6, 6pm
Rockwood Music Hall

with firey love,

Whoa! Shows! Radio! Manhattan, Brooklyn, Boston and Philadelphia

There are some exciting developments in my musical world to announce:

Saturn has recently gotten featured airplay on radio stations from Brattleboro, VT down to Philadelphia, PA.  If you know of a great independent radio station, let me know and I’ll get them my music.

Also, after several years of shows in NYC, I’m taking my band to Boston and Philadelphia for our first regional gigs.  Akie, Andrew, Dan and I will be in Boston on May 10 and Philly on June 6.  Tell your friends!

Of course, we wouldn’t leave the NYC crowd lacking.  Therefore, there will be many opportunities in the coming weeks to catch the band and other projects of mine.

A Rockwood Return Feb 17th, 11pm

In the last few weeks of cold weather, I have had many nights ensconced in my home writing new songs, and the harvest has been tremendous–so abundant, in fact, that I can’t use ’em all. So like a city dweller with an over-stuffed CSA haul, I’m inviting you to come take the songs and make a feast together.
