Three days ago, The National left for their fourth tour of Europe in the past 18 months. After that they'll rest awhile. Erik Friedlander is gearing up for a West Coast tour in June. Please attend. Clogs continue to plan some national dates for this fall, when composer and strings player Padma Newsome returns from Australia. Baby Dayliner continues to gig regularly in Manhattan, as he lays plans for some national touring. We also want you to know that recently, while DJing for his friend Chase Phoenix, Baby Dayliner had cause to open for Busta Rhymes and the Jurassic 5 at college shows in Poughkeepsie, NY and Providence, RI. It was surreal.
