Finally an update!

And it's not even a real blog, just an embedded video of my band playing our version of David Bowie's "Space Oddity". Enjoy!

Spring Tour Blog

Here's a brief summary of the Robley tour thus far:

Things are going pretty well, I'm able to keep current on my workload, which was one of my big concerns. The Sprinter van is pretty awesome - very spacious & the built-in wifi is a godsend. It was a bit of a problem finding parking in San Francisco, but we eventually found some street parking.

Yesterday, we went to the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose. It was creepy and awesome and certain items in the gift store were available only to members of the mysterious order itself. We then saw a fairly shoddy slide show with narration in the planetarium that felt like an indoctrination video, but ending up being some vaguely edutainment about an old Greek cult who like astronomical whatnot.

Right now, the 6 of us bandmembers are in our hotel room in Merced watching Seinfeld. We were here last night & did laundry today, playing a show tonight, then driving the 6-8 hours down to San Diego tomorrow afternoon. We've passed a lot of time & gotten excercise by playing catch with a little inflatable rubber ball we bought at a drug store. Anyway, things are good & we're having fun. I had a video chat with Marisa & Simon earlier today & it was nice to see them & talk to them, though obviously not like being there in person.

New Simon videos

As you can see, he's getting bigger, smarter, and more talented every day.

Everybody get ready to get ready to rock!



"They undoubtedly have great potential, purely based on the band lineup. In addition to [Grammy-nominated guitarist] Kevin, who was a founding member of national act Smalltown Poets, they’ve got Henry Curl of Jonah belting out the vocals, along with Benjy Rickard and Peter Swenson, both formerly of Boy Eats Drum Machine." - Pet Marmoset

Yes, Kevin really was nominated for Grammy, and I'm in a band with him.

That band (Hello Morning) will be working hard and playing hard tonight at the Ash St. Saloon in beautiful downtown Portland tonight. If you live in LA or Santa Monica, be sure to fly up for this one.

If you live in Seattle, you should really consider flying to LA, then catching a ride with one of my friends down there who's coming up for this show.

We may not be up for any Grammys this year, but if we play our cards right, maybe a Portland Music Award is in doable?

Also, there will be a free show next month at the Doug Fir that will be an extravaganza of new sights and sounds for us, but if you want to catch us before we hit the big time, come on out tonight. It'll be fun.

We play tonight at 9:30 and it's only $6.

By the way, Hello Morning is also on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Reverb Nation, and Myspace, so you really can't miss us if you have internet.

I think God has Portland confused with Vermont

We thought the snow was bad yesterday:



But look what arrived last night and this morning:



Good lord. I'm so cold and hungry. Not thirsty, thanks to plenty of beer & liquor from the Christmas party. But staying drunk for 3 days in a row is hard, you know?
