The January Township residency/benefit shows were incredible. I’m humbled by the generosity of the artists and musicians who spent their January Monday evenings lending their time and talent to the cause. Common Pantry is/was very grateful for the donations that we delivered.
The weather could not have been worse. I mean, one was cancelled, another involved an intimidating, slippery winter mix and the last one was part of the Polar Vortex part 2, Electric Boogaloo.
Not only did we come together for charity but we came together to perform and display are specified skills. And on that note, we all killed it. A whole lotta rock, beats, bleeps, strums and eye candy went down! Woo! Yeah.
Since last February(or since ’93) I’ve played a ton of shows, booked a bunch of bands and even did the intern thing. I’m going to be taking some time off of the stage and do some behind the scenes work, write, record and create some neat sounds. When I reemerge I hope to have another record done. I’ll throw things up on this WordPress from time to time and keep the updates coming. But for now, I’m going off grid(sort of).
I was going to post the great poster for this event but I’m having a little trouble with my WordPress photos and I didn’t want to delay getting this out to the public. –

This song is one of my favorites from 2008′s Brice Woodall & the Positrons “Sine Wave Sea”. It was a blast live and if memory serves me correct, we crushed it at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, UK that same year.
I will be the resident musician at the Logan Square venue Township every Monday in January and I will have some great musicians and artists beside me. We’re going to be asking for a suggested donation and the beneficiary of that donation will be Common Pantry. http://commonpantry.org/
I can’t wait for the new year! More info, including the line ups will be coming very soon. Please join us in January!
“Redwoods” was the first song on 2006′s Brice Woodall “Feathery Trigger” record. The song is about cold war nostalgia. It was a fan favorite and mentioned as one of XMU’s favorite single tracks of the year. We even played and recorded it live in Abbey Road studio!
And it was also masterfully recorded by Steve Barber.
“Suburbs and Skyscrapers” is from 2011′s Brice Woodall “id escaped” EP.
Performed by Brice Woodall, Mark Lewis & Trevor Bittinger
Engineered and mixed by Mark Lewis @ Junxt Studio, Brooklyn, NY
Produced by Brice Woodall, Mark Lewis & Trevor Bittinger

‘Shot into the Sea’ was recorded in 2007 on my 4 track and was never released on an album. It still makes its way into set lists because I still like it. Enjoy.
Hey guys! My droney, psychedelic electronic tune “Shake” is on the latest Chicago Mixtape. Thanks Casey!
He also plugged this Friday’s Nov. 8 Subterranean show where I’ll be warming up the stage for The Soil and the Sun. Woo!
To download the latest mix or sign up for Chicago Mixtape clink on the link below and you’ll immediately receive the downloads and have access to the vault.
I have a huge show this Friday, Nov. 8. Huge because Subterranean is one of my favorite venues and also because The Soil and the Sun is a stunner of a band. Check the invite for the details—https://www.facebook.com/events/343818135755069/?ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular My beats and walls of sound will be warming up the stage first around 8:30pm.
And here is the Free Download of the Week–
“Even the Mice & Snakes”
Now this was obviously not recorded at Sound City. In fact, it’s a hybrid of tracks recorded on my ’94 Yamaha cassette four track and Garageband software recording. It was an absolute blast to do. Enjoy the hiss and pass it along. Thanks!
