I’ve got Good News and I’ve got Bad News

May 13, 2014


matchbox open

The bad news is: Due to a health situation, I’ve had to cancel all shows and appearances for the time being . So both upcoming The Julie Ruin tours are off, Europe and USA, also sadly The 4 Knots Festival in NYC and Sled Island which I was especially excited about. I’m currently undergoing treatment for a relapse of a co-infection I got with my lovely Lyme disease and am hoping to be back in the saddle this Fall. The Good News is this.

Summer show in NYC!!!!

Interesting article by a great writer

April 29, 2014



Not only did this guy rape someone he also wears fucking rubberbands in his beard.He is a baseball player and  baseballs not my thing but I like how this writer addresses the relationship between sexual assault, sports and shit that happens on Twitter. How comments are so often totally sexist and misguided but sold to everyone as ” Hey I’m just stating my opinion here, what’s the problem?” The problem is we live in a culture that often treats rape as a “whoops I messed up but you should let me move on.” when survivors don’t have the luxury to just “move on.” Anyways an interesting read. Sorry about the picture of this gnarly guy but I wanted to get your attention. He’s kinda like Slipknot meets Billy Crudup. But I like Billy Crudup and I do not like this guy. At all.

BPMy interview with superstar Brontez Purnell is up . I love this guy so much I asked his band, The Younger Lovers, to play a festival I am guest curating and jumped at the chance to ask him a bunch of questions. Brontez is like a charisma factory that never shuts down, just read the interview, I promise you won’t be disappointed. We talk about fashion, race, the perils of being an over engaged, underpaid artist and a bunch more.
