New Pickup Show 

Last night I was booked to play Thursday 5 October at Caledonia with Courtesan. This was an opening that happened late and Coley was nice enough to let me fill the void, as my format allows me to easily book on short notice.

I remembered after having agreed to it that MusickFest is happening that night at the 40 Watt. This is a benefit for Wendy Musick of Southern Bitch. I plan to catch as much of that show as I can and to contribute; I hope you'll do the same.

Buy the New Xmas Single 

I now have the new Xmas single available for online purchase and download. "Hamburger Xmas Eve" (featuring Clay Leverett of Lona and Now It's Overhead) is actually included as a B-side to "Terry & Holly," and these are packed with "Essie, the Aussie Swimdancer" (featuring Dave Marr of Star Room Boys) into a zip file. The audio files are 256kbps mp3's so the quality is considerably higher than that of the free ones at the MySpace page. The download cost is $2.97, which is exactly what you would pay at iTunes. The graphic on the page is intended to be actual-size CD artwork you can print out, trim and fold to use with your burned CD.

This is my first attempt at selling music online, directly to the audience. Sometime soon I'll have some physical copies at CDBaby, who will also put the songs on iTunes and the other major music download sites.

New Xmas Single 

This year I'm trying to get the holiday product out more in advance of Christmas than I usually manage. I have uploaded "Hamburger Xmas Eve" to the MySpace page. This is the one featuring Clay Leverett of Lona, the Chasers and Now It's Overhead. It was recorded last December but it will be included with "A Very Lester Xmas 2006."
