West Coast 2012

I'm not the best at updating my blog, I apologize. In late May/early June I toured out west with Tim Barry and Kevin Seconds. I got to play a lot of really cool shows and took even cooler pictures. I also got to meet some really incredible people and catch up with some old friends. I had a really great time. Here are a few of the pictures I took. LAX
Gallivanting around Silver Lake. We played a show in Long Beach at the Alex's Bar, which is where they shoot bar scenes for True Blood. If I watched the show I would probably be way more excited about it, but this is their bathroom filled with creepy cupie doll paintings.
Las Vegas is just as weird and saturated as you think it's going to be before you go. Then you get there, and the reality of its weirdness is more than you can process at the time. I took an embarrassing amount of pictures here, but these are the highlights:
At first, you're all like 'Oh, cool, Tupac,' but THEN you're all like 'holy shit, is that a little person Mr. T??!!!!'
and I ran into Zoro at the drug store.
I got to see Rancid from backstage, which felt a lot like grown up me giving 15 year old me an epic time-traveling high five. We also went to Tempe, AZ. I met people from all walks of biker gang life from weekend warrior moms and dads, Buddhist bikers and actual Hell's Angels.
We also stopped off in at a gift shop in the middle of nowhere Nevada and it did not disappoint.
This is me in front of a giant cactus.
This is San Diego.
This is I-5 North.
The thing about these pictures is that they were taken one after another. Ocean to my left, mountains to my right.
Weird tits.
This dog almost brought me to tears.
Every show or town has its pluses and minuses, but I would say overall the most amazing place we went on the tour was Black Butte, CA. Really amazing, beautiful place and people.
I ate delicious donuts in Portland, and saw a few old friends.
In Seattle I saw more old friends, my cousin and SLEEP!
After Seattle I flew back to Richmond, slept as much as I could and got ready to hit up the east coast. It's been a really great summer. Stay Gold, Julie

Whoa!

man, the last few months have been a whirl of really awesome things, both musically and lifewise. it's rad, it's exhausting and exhilarating, too. a while back tim barry asked me to sing a few tracks for his new record, and of course without hesitation i said yes. it was really neat getting to be a part of the process, and i think the final product is awesome! his new record, 40 miler, it great and you should definitely check it out.
tim, josh small, andrew alli and myself played a record release show on friday the 13th and it was a really amazing time. i met a lot of really great people and it was such a thrill to play all the songs that the four of us have been collaborating on for the last few months. you can check out the record at www.chunksaah.com. promise you'll like it.
i have started playing some music with my friend wess brockman who is in several richmond bands, including the super rad fire bison. we will be playing a show with my new york buds, fletcher c. johnson, at cous cous in richmond on may 3rd. here is a track that we worked on together and recorded in wess's room.


i am also putting out a 7inch in late may and couldn't be happier about it! my good friend talia miller is putting out and i'm so stoked.

here is a list of my upcoming tour dates, more will be added probably. the best way to find out is to go to timbarryrva.com

stay gold.
