the shire and brighton

hey guys,
We played Glossop the other night and aside from it being a cancerquarium, the show went very well. The people were sweet and the we went to the world's only indian/ol' english pub while we were there. Last night we played Brighton at a great place called PRESSURE POINT. After soundcheck we went to a vegetarian burger place called Grubbs. You have not lived until you have had a peanut butter/pineapple/banana veggie burger. After that we went to a vegetarian/vegan pub called George's and had some tea. The show went very well despite a small turnout. Jenn did a little solo set and she was brilliant. After the show, we drove to the english channel and then danced to Billie Jean in the car. We have the day off today and tomorrow we play in London with the legendary Sean O'Hagan.

Norwich and hospitals

We played last night at the Norwich Arts Centre. It is a beautiful venue and we were treated to samosas, rice, salad and myriad other vegan delights! The show went well despite my trainwrecking one of the songs..nerves I guess. I am writing this blog at the Beeches Hotels in Norwich, as we wait to hear from Jenn who went to the hospital because she thinks that she has a chest infection.........yikes. As soon as we hear from her, we are hopping in the van and driving to the next show which is tonight in Glossop, a town so small that british people have never heard of it!

Tribeca, demos, & Europe

Hey everyone,

The "A Heavy Blinkers Trio presents selections from HEALTH" show at Tribeca was a bona fide success. It was very well attended and we received some great press from the Daily News and the Coast, which I will put up on this site soon. My mom and dad, Dave's parents, and Jen's mom all went to the show, so it was indeed a family affair.
We also demoed a tonne of material, some of which will be on this site in the weeks to come.
