A busy weekend getting things set for the upcoming tour with Paal Nilssen-Love. Got a new and lighter baritone trunk made, so this will be the first tour with that horn, tenor, and clarinet in a couple years; hope the experiment works economically- last time I went out with the bari I had to pay 1500 euros in overweight in one week…

Long talk about Okka Disk with Bruno Johnson when I was in Milwaukee, the state of independent record labels and musicians, and the ongoing struggle to keep things happening with so many financial resources disappearing.

Saw “Your Weren’t There” for the first time, fantastic documentary on the Chicago Punk scene: http://tinyurl.com/y33t7gk
