2011: the Year of the Lemon

I have to say, with Kipley’s departure I wasn’t sure how to feel about the future of the Fuzzy Lemons. But some exciting things have been happening that are breathing new life into the band. First of all, I just received word that Pandora (the huge online music site) has accepted our application. Within a few months you’ll be able to set up your own Fuzzy Lemons Pandora channel!

Second, and perhaps most importantly, Dana has been working the phones and has been securing gigs for us. Not just any gigs, either; she’s booking some very cool events. Here’s what’s on the calendar so far:
January 16: Private birthday unplugged gig
[January 29: I’m playing at Kids Rock, Crash Mansion, NYC]
February 6: Unplugged trio in Great Neck, LI
February 10: The Lemons’ Birthday!
[February 13: Music Together at Cabin Fever]
February 13: Knitting Factory, Bklyn
February 18: KZTV at Mt. Sinai Hospital, NYC
March 13: Knitting Factory, Bklyn
March 20: Monroe Theatre, Hoboken
April 9: Autism fund-raiser at the Rue School, Hoboken
April 16: Earth Day at Liberty State Park, Jersey City
April 17: Knitting Factory, Bklyn
May 1: Hoboken Arts & Music Festival
May 7: Monroe Theatre, Hoboken
May 15: Hoboken Baby Parade, Pier A, Hoboken (morning)
May 15: Knitting Factory, Bklyn (afternoon)
June 4: Riverfest, Red Bank NJ
July 9: Kids Kingdom in Rahway NJ
July 18: Family Fun Night in Manhassat, NY
July 26: Shipyard Park, Hoboken
August 13: Kids Kingdom in Elizabeth, NJ
September 17-18: UC MusicFest, Clark, NJ

This is a pretty good start! I’d also love to get back to some of our favorite places to play, including Ben & Jerry’s in Ridgewood, Make Music NY, Waterside Plaza (we never did get to reschedule last year!), Rumson’s Victory Park, the Bronx Zoo, and Madison Square Park.

While I’m at it, here’s my wish list for new gigs for 2011:
Southpaw, Bklyn
92 Street Y Tribeca
Peanut Butter and Jams, Philly
Bowery Poetry Club
Highline Ballroom

And I’d love to get back to KindieFest and this year play the showcase!
