Metro Boston (Cambridge). I grew up in Boston proper (East Boston). Do you make it to the city often? I like doing open mics once in a while. Wouldn't mind grabbing a beer at one some time. Well, not actually a beer, cause I'm eating gluten free, but ya know, something intoxicating!

I don't go in regularly, but love it. Train station right down the road from me. PM me some time when you play and if all lines up well, you can watch me drink a beer. :)
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Found Nur Ein by searching Reddit for "songwriting"...

Submitted a song for this week's fight: Deep Sub-Reddit...

WOW, the Synchronicity!

I found out about Song Fight when I looked up MC Frontalot on Wikipedia after hearing him rap when watching random rap music videos on YouTube.

A friend and a longtime Songfight lurker told me about it. He's still lurking for all I know. I'm not aware that he has a username; my guess is he does and just never posts, but who knows. His wife's a songfighter, too, if not actively so at the moment.

He's probably reading this. :shock: What's up, man! Nice to see you! How's the kid? :)

Caravan Ray introduced me to the idea after kicking around at the same open mics for a couple of years.

OH!!! You are probably the person he was referring to then when he was in Portland and said he'd been talking about Song Fight to someone he'd met at the open mics! The light just clicked on-DUHHH. Yes. Welcome to Song Fight. Please continue the awesome.

Your Safe Harbor is fuckin' rad. You're like Erin McKeown and Joni Mitchell with a tiiiiiny dash of Courtney Barnett probably just because of your nationality... but still. (I like all three very much.)

Yes - I believe I did refer to Pepper Jane to you and the possible similarities in the PJ/DJRD styles

On the subwoah JUST this morning (well of course it was my 1st subway ride ever in the Americas) I was thinking about hoping to bump into Neo on said transportation sometime. Aah I can dream. Matrix (1) is still my favourite all-time movie. Followed closely by teenage-dreamhusband (once I got over TMNT infatuation with same-name) Leo's 'Inception'.

Thanks JB, I didn't know who E McK was but now I do and that's quite a grand bunch to be held up against. In fact I'm considering covering Joni's Both Sides Now for the final, hidden, track on my double debut album (some say I think *too* much. If anyone wants to collab that'd be grand. Perhaps we could manage it in NYC in July. Almost awkwardly and completely unintentionally I guess my Teeth Marks would totally confirm the CB likeness :-p

Stoked to be involved here and have something to channel my brain soup into or around each week. I've got my House Red in development but got nothin on Eggshells at this stage.
Oh. That just gave me an idea

I think it was SpinTown’s blog when he was doing reviews in 2009. We saw DJ Ranger Den and Christopher Cogott in Nur Ein and tried it for #6. Now we’re tied for most years attempting to get past a few rounds.

We finally put in for one songfight years ago. We should do another one.
