This is a merry band of intrepid adventurers, aglow post-show at the ol’ Klimperstube. We are leaving the European continent and headed to Marrakech. I’m very grateful to be alive and making music. Tell your friends you love them. Photo by the incredible @skiaa.caesar

Thank you, friendly humans, for checking out the new live video with The Positive Agenda. I’d like to call some attention to @mempeacejustice (whose shirt I’m wearing) and @eji_org for striving for equal justice and a peaceful future. These groups are committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the US, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in society. The memorial is dedicated to the traumatic legacy of enslaved people of color who are still burdened with institutionalized contemporary presumptions of guilt and police violence. Both my art and personhood have a fundamental core of positivity and radical inclusiveness, and that’s thanks in no small part to my extreme privilege as a white cis male raised by loving, financially-stable folks. I champion joy and invite people to Have Their Most Best Time, but that’s certainly not the whole picture. Raising awareness of our own ugly contextual history can only help us to better approach our immediate spheres of influence as well as our current geopolitical flustercluck. Love you all. We’re In This Together.
