Cancellations

Hi Friends. We're very sad that our shows with Jennifer O'Connor have been canceled (hopefully just postponed), but the health of our vulnerable neighbors is more important than rock shows. We miss you and love you and hope you are well.

PS: We are A-OK, but this would be a great time to support artists who will be missing out on tour income. Listen to this incredibly beautiful song from Jennifer and consider showing some financial support if you are able.
*There are physical copies of several JOC albums available through the Kiam Records site.

Sweet Jacob. Rest well, Brother.

 I wasn't as close to you as a lot of our friends here, but I always loved seeing your shy smile and pulling you in for a big old sweaty/smokey hug. You would immediately shift the focus back to me when I asked how you were holding up. It was lovely to see the peace and sense of mission that you felt serving your friends. Shit, you chose to spend hours in the hot sun cooking for us rather than chilling inside watching your favorite bands play. But when you allowed yourself a set from a particular fave - that was something to behold. I could feel the waves of PURE JOY and RIGHTEOUS ANGER just rolling off of your gentle spirit. That heaviness both weighed you down and carried you farther than you thought you could go.

I hate that your brain wouldn't let you rest. I hate that you didn't have everything you needed to continue your journey here with us. But I'm so grateful for the time we had.

I love you and will continue to love you.

Christmas Schimizzi

Recorded December 2019 for Jon Solomon's 25 hour Holiday Radio Show Marathon on WPRB, Princeton.

Christmas Schimizzi lost his way
Coming back from the war
A dollar and a half to ride the plane
Or canvas stretched over board

At the grocery store
The plans backfired
He hit the floor
And everything cracked

A message sent into the dark
A bottle passed to a friend
The carnival, the carnivore
The kiss that didn’t end

At the grocery store
The plans backfired
He hit the floor
And everything cracked
