I sent this out to everyone I thought in my e-mail contacts, but perhaps I missed a few people:

It's a Jack newsletter. I need a name for it. Maybe East Side Buffet News?
Other suggestions?

It's 3 AM here in Portland. I should proof-read this one more time (I just caught something), but it's late.
I've decided to try and send this to everyone I know even though the first 2 items only apply to Portland folk.
For those not in Portland, skip to #3 and #4. This started as a Portland e-mail, then turned into a more involved thing and 2 hours later, here we are.

1. Tonight (Saturday) is the last performance of the dance show Gust. I just saw it. It is amazing. You should get tickets in advance and get there early. (doors at 7:50). Full disclosure my friend Amanda is in it, but even if she wasn't I'd still recommend it - you should also support her awesome urban farm. She grows and sells super yummy and cheap salad mix, kale and more.

2. Saturday (today) After you see the dance performance come check out the first performance of my new band Awkward Energy (ok 2nd show, but this is the first time with live drummer Vinhy the Pearl, and his drumming is quite impressive.) Show is maybe $5. We are opening a show at East End for the Beets and Eternal Summers. Come watch me play some quiet songs and then some loud songs where I will scream and dance around a bunch and lose my voice, and then I'll play another quiet song.!/event.php?eid=152802768118432
Our next show will be June 16th -a book release party -for the inaugural release by a new small press:
but it might be weird and different. (how was my grammar there?)

3. If you have a website/blog could you put a link for the website/blog I post stuff on
the URL is:
Other people contribute as well, if you want to post something (anything), please submit.
If you'd like me to post a link for your site, let me know I'd be happy to. I'm still trying to figure out how to get more "traffic"

4. I have some albums for sale on Bandcamp. Cheap $2-5! Some new, some old.
I think you can stream all the tracks.
Jackson Barry Stole My Trumpet (complete recordings from Bard)
Jack + Cutoffs (Smoking Gun Records)
JL + Woodgrain (Live tracks from my old Portland band playing on the Radio + an interview)
In other music news, my brother Jeff and I played shows last year in Russia, New Zealand, Australia, Israel/Palestine.
+ I'm working on a few new albums.

5. I have a Twitter account @Jackcomplains (complaints and other time wasting stuff)

6. I have new videos up online for my internet show East Side Buffet (comedy music, interviews and more)
Watch various videos at and
Subscribe, vote on them, re-post them, click like or dislike and pass along

David Ya Ya Herman Dune recording at Type Foundry singing the lead song off Herman Dune's sweet-ass new album Strange Moosic.
Watch the video for the finished song here:
(Also some photos I took of the band are in the liner notes, watch a funny video of the band displaying the album art here:

A short chat with the artist Martin Creed at the Tate Modern (with some music by his band).

A mini-profile of the young UK band Lets Wrestle. My brother Jeff and I played shows with these guys 5 years ago when they were 15. Now they are signed to Merge Records and all grown up (kind of). It's crazy.

D) A Shelley Short song from a house party show in Harrisonburg, Virginia
(sorry the song gets cut off, my batteries died)

Little Wings rapping at the last show at the Artistery
(LW raps more at the start)

F) Coming Soon, the 2nd episode of ESB: 3rd Anniversary Season Edition. featuring myself, Dan Leif, Claire Titelman, Mikey Kampmann, a song by The Shaky Hands, Powells Books, and more (maybe)
Coming after that, the 3rd episode ESB featuring the Safdie Brothers
Coming after that more crap (maybe the 4th episode).

G) Just a G

7. This is where I list my most recent achievements:

8. I'm forgetting something I know it. What is it?

9. Anyone want off the newsletter let me know

10. I'm working on the 2nd issue of Lvov Zine (one strip is attached), if you want a copy send me your address, and maybe I'll get around to sending you one
If you don't have issue one of Lvov Zine, let me know and I can send you both (or just one)

11. feel free to say write back and say hi, let me know what you're up if we haven't spoken in a while and you haven't been posting life updates via Facebook

I didn't get it but don't know if I was on any list, but anyway, thanks for posting! Always nice to have a read. Have you got any new cosy winter jumpers with reindeer on them? I always think of you when I see warm jumpers because you were wearing one like that when I saw you. Sorry, bit random there. I'm in such a weird mood today.
Youíre just mega jells, donít get annoyed
I bet you wish you were stoned and unemployed.

I added The Pinata to the recommendations on my blog Jack! If you want to add it to your Allies or stuff i like then that is cool, if not then that is cool as well. my blog (and my friends) is
it's filled with music, poetries, pictures, random stuff.
the pinata is great and I am really excited for this new music of yours and the zine. keep us updated when we can get it!
