GOOD IDEA SUMMER - 8/7/14
This summer, for the first time, Seattle presents Piano in the Parks. The Parks Dept. have teamed up with various partners to place 20 pianos outside at 20 local parks. To highlight this ingenious idea, KEXP has asked musicians around town to donate a performance at one of the Pianos. KEXP will film the performance to preserve online in their archives. After checking out the rad Piano Art and visiting a few parks, it was just too hard to choose. I've decided to do two short Aqueduct solo sets at two different parks.
Wednesday, August 13th
8:00pm - Sunset Performance
Sunday, Aug 17th
4:00pm - Afternoon Show
Please join me for these special performances of Aqueduct songs (and maybe a cover?) to celebrate this truly awesome and unique community art project.
MIXING IT UP - 5/6/14
Ole~! ...It's back to Texas again, and I'm excited to be entering the final mix phase on the new Aqueduct album. I certainly have taken my sweet-ass time, but the record is taking a beautiful shape. I know in my heart that this is the best music I have ever recorded, thanks in no small part to Matt Pence down in the Echo Lab. I can't wait for everyone to hear!!!
For you Pacific Northwesterners, lookout for a live show! My dear friends from the Seattle band the Catch (OG Lineup) have planned a fun show at the Crocodile and have asked Aqueduct and Tennis Pro to join in. Really looking forward to this sure-to-be-unstoppable rock show on Wed. June 25th + it'll be just like old times! Stay tuned for more info in the show between now and then.
BARSUK RECORDS 15TH ANNIVERSARY - 10/22/13

IT'S ABOUT TIME - 8/9/13
Aqueduct is headed to the heartland for a Texas Style Recording Adventure. We'll be working with superstar engineer/drummer/collaborator Matt Pence (Centro-matic) at the Echo Lab in Denton, TX. It's been a long time since Aqueduct has recorded there…hell, it's been a while since we've released a record. We plan to do in 2 weeks what has been building for far... too... long...
When we're close to home Aqueduct is going to play a few pop-in shows 'round OK & TX. We love us some hometown crowd, so come and get it!
THE GREAT NORTHWEST BOAT SHOW!! - 2/15/13
Attention Pacific-NorthWesterners!! Our good friends from the band BOAT have coaxed us out of the garage and onto the stage, for two shows in March, in celebration of the release of their new album "Pretend To Be Brave".
Aqueduct will join BOAT & The Quiet Ones at Barboza in Seattle on Saturday, March 2nd. Two weeks later, on Saturday March 16th, BOAT & Aqueduct will take Portland by storm at Mississippi Studios with help from Shelly Short.
We're excited to debut some new tunes we've been working on as well as "rock the classics". We might just play our cover of the title track off the new BOAT record...
...oh yeah…We recently covered a BOAT song (in the style of Aqueduct), that will be featured on cassette, with the first 100 pre-orders of "Pretend To Be Brave". Other contributors to the companion release, Fishboy, Throw Me The Statue, Sea Navy, Math & Physics Club, John Roderick and many more, round out a re-imagining of the entire new BOAT album.
GET OUT THE VOTE + FREE SHOW IN SEATTLE - 10/24/12

Our efforts will be to help get out the vote for a couple of state politicos, Inslee for Governor & Cantwell for US Senate. Come show your support, hear some great music & have a good time!
ALIVE AND WELL + ROCK SHOW!!! - 8/15/12
It's been a hot minute since a news update, but Aqueduct is indeed alive and well and coming to a Portland, Oregon near you! After many months holed up in the studio working on fresh material, Aqueduct will surface to play our first show in what feels like forever. We're excited to be supporting our friends at the Normise Organization along with several great local Portland bands on Friday, Aug 24th, to play a benefit concert for Haiti Youth Arts and Education. Go to NORMISE.ORG for more information or to donate to this fine organization.
Stay tuned for more Aqueduct news updates in the coming months as work on the new album wraps up! We'll be playing new songs at the Portland show, but if you can't make it, lookout for a sneak preview of new material on the website soon :)
