End of the year!

Here's all my updates for the end of 2015:

I'm playing in a new band with guitarist Matt Hollenberg, bassist Johnny DeBlase, and drummer Kenny Grohowski that will be bringing you John Zorn's Bagatelles. Matt and I performed these as a duo back in July, now see them blown up and blown out with full force.
