Another week and closer to tour again. I am off to Japan next week for five weeks of gigs and onsen! My dates are below. This week's Inside Vibe I play tribute to the music of Masura Sato, one of the composers responsible for the scores for Akira Kurosawa, as well as a bit of a Persian funk and jazz tip and then loads more tunes. I am seriously on the Janelle Monae train! I hope you are? Going down as a top album of the year 'Archandroid' for me. I hope I get to see this lady live one day.
On top of other new things like Electric Wire Hustle and remixes for Fat Freddys Drop (well done the White Shirts against Italy) I manage to squeeze in a great local soul/roots duo Geoffrey Williams and Lime aka Fishtailparker GB; who drop by to do a stripped down three song performance and a bit of chat.

This is my last show till August so wish you all the best of Julys and if you are in Japan over the next month here are my dates.

peace
Blair

I saw Janelle three times till now! :)
I can only say I was lucky... first at SXSW cpl years ago, then in Houston twice. It was always a different crowd, always a different setting she played in, but every time MIND-BLOWING.
I'll see her again in a few weeks, she's touring US and will catch another show...

Cheers, and thanks for the great show (actually all the great shows you put on :-P)

As far as I know, I am not a robot.
