August 28, 2013

It’s been a great month of August. I went up to the Northwest and played some shows, which was a lot of fun. This past weekend was FYF Fest here in L.A. where I was able to see so many of my favorite artists: Kurt Vile, Devendra Banhart, TV on the Radio, Melvins, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Omar Souleyman, Les Savy Fav, Yo La Tengo, Beach House, My Bloody Valentine, and more. Earlier in the month I got to see a private Flaming Lips show at Warner Bros where they played a bunch of material from their catalog, including many older songs that I have never seen them play before. Here I am with Wayne Coyne after the show.

July 31, 2013

Last week we took a field trip down to South Central L.A. We had some delicious BBQ at Bludso's in Compton and then went over to the always-inspiring Watt's Towers. Looking forward to going up north next week to play shows in Vancouver, BC, Seattle, and Portland. It's been fun watching the Dodgers climb from last place to the top of the NL West over the past month. I snagged the Vin Scully bobblehead last week, which looks great. I also got hooked into watching Breaking Bad. Hoping to get all caught up before the new season kicks off.

June 6, 2013

I’m thrilled to have finally released my sophomore album Dundrearies last month. I’m playing a show in Seattle next week and looking to line up more shows this summer. I just finished a music video for the song “Wait” which should be premiering soon.

I recently went north of L.A. for a fantastic weekend in San Luis Obispo for a wedding, and managed to sneak in some delicious wine tasting as well.

The atmosphere was electric at Dodger Stadium Tuesday night with Yasiel Puig hitting his first two career home runs.

May 21, 2013


I'm excited that today is the release date for my sophomore album, Dundrearies. I was pleased to work with my friends David Newton (The Mighty Lemon Drops), who produced the album, and Scott Solter, who mixed it. Thanks for listening and for your support. Hope you enjoy it.

The best place to buy a CD or digital download is from my website: http://music.grahammacrae.com/

The album is also available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Rdio, Rhapsody, eMusic, and more.

The music has been getting quite a bit of positive feedback already: 

The Big Takeover just put up the album stream premiere today
Buzzbands.LA premiered the track "Game Changer", which was also picked as the KDHX Song of the Day .
Magnet's MP3 at 3 premiered the track "Wait", which is also featured in CMJ's Monthly Mixtape for May.

April 15, 2013

Spent a day at the beach yesterday instead of doing the whole Coachella weekend thing. It doesn't look I'll be going out to the desert next weekend either as I plan to be running around town for Record Store Day this Saturday. I recently went up for my Grandparents' 65th Wedding Anniversary party. It was a lot of fun commemorating the occasion with my extended family and friends. Glad that we're back to baseball season. There is a lot of excitement around the Dodgers this year. Here I am with one of the new giant bobbleheads at the Dodger Stadium. Looking forward to the Jackie Robinson Celebration tonight.


March 20, 2013

After taking two years off, I ventured back to Austin, TX for SXSW last week. It keeps getting crazier and more corporate over the years, but I still had a good time catching up with people and seeing some awesome shows. I was able to watch The Flaming Lips play their entire new album in front of many thousands of people. I also caught sets from The Little Ones, Yellow Red Sparks, Bend Sinister, Devendra Banhart, Iron & Wine, Emmylou Harris, Thee Oh Sees, METZ, and more. Had the best BBQ ever at Franklin BBQ. Lone Star for breakfast.


Nov 12, 2012

It's been a busy fall season. CMJ was a success, hosting the first A man A plan A canal day party and hanging out with so many wonderful people in the college and non-comm radio community. It was an exciting end to the MLB season, with things looking good for the Dodgers in 2013. I've been following football and basketball a bit, but trying to keep them at arm's length to leave more time for music. That said, I recently went to the USC vs Oregon college football game which was action packed, featuring 113 total points and 1345 yards of offense. I saw great shows from METZ, Infantree, and Bend Sinister this week. Excited to see Gary Clark Jr. and Tame Impala this week.


Oct 1, 2012

The fall is fully upon us. I've been seeing a bunch of great shows lately: Lianne La Havas at Amoeba, Thee Oh Sees, Animal Collective / Flying Lotus / Huun Huur Tu at Hollywood Bowl, Brooklyn Brothers, Mount Analog presents Nuit Noire, and more. Here's a picture from Earlimart's Record Release Party this past Friday night. There's a bunch of great shows lined up this week too: Mount Eerie, The Black Keys, and the Eagle Rock Music Festival. Headed out to Dodger Stadium tonight for my last regular season home game of 2012.


July 30, 2012

I had a lot of fun this past week with my friends Dave and Helen in town from the UK. A group of us went to the Tottenham Hotspur vs. LA Galaxy game last Tuesday. It was a blast going to see The Big Lebowski at the Hollywood Forever cemetery on Saturday night. Jeff Dowd, who "The Dude" was based on, was there to introduce the film. I'm happy that Dodgers are back in 1st place after sweeping the Giants in SF this weekend. I've already watched more of the Olympics than I did in 2008 and 2004. Still finding the time for music and drawing. Hoping to finish some new art projects soon.


July 16, 2012

Vinyl lovers rejoice: this weekend another new record store opened up in Los Angeles called Mount Analog. The shop is also the US headquarters of British label Finders Keepers and B-Music. I highly recommend checking it out when you're in the neighborhood. Plenty of burgers and carne asada have been getting cooked up on the grill lately, and I'm still seeing plenty of music and baseball. Last week I got a foul ball for the first time.


July 3, 2012

It's been a great start to the summer season. Los Angeles has a new champion with the Kings winning the Stanley Cup this year. It was a pleasure cheering on their excellent young team. The Dodgers have been fading due to a bunch of injuries, but there's still plenty of time to turn things around. I've been seeing some solid shows, including sets from Mystery Jets, The Little Ones, Infantree, Beachwood Sparks, and The Endangered. I also got the chance to see a great documentary on the artist Rodriguez called Searching For Sugar Man. Two weekends ago I was able to get out of L.A. for a fun trip up to San Francisco. I managed to fit in the SF MOMA, Mission Burritos, Aquarius and Amoeba, City Lights, and a bunch of baseball. Here are Susie and I after watching the A's walk-off win against the Giants.


May 15, 2012

Life continues to be full of musical and sporting adventures. I had some inspiring music meetings last week, making plans for the coming year. I made it up to KXLU with Ramona Falls for a guest DJ set and on air interview, and I also caught their set at The Echo the following night. I've seen some more great Dodger games, and I keep getting sucked into the NBA and NHL playoffs, following the Thunder, Clippers, and Kings.


April 30, 2012

I went out to both Friday and Saturday's Dodgers vs Nationals games this weekend. Friday I got to see an Ethier HR and a Kershaw Win. On Saturday the Nationals pitched Stephen Strasburg and brought up their highly touted prospect Bryce Harper for his MLB debut. In dramatic fashion the Dodgers scored 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th to send it into extra innings, and Matt Kemp won the game with a walk off HR in the bottom of the 10th. The Dodgers swept the series and are now tied for the best record in baseball. Here's a pitcure of Bryce Harper in his first MLB at bat.


April 23, 2012

I just did back-to-back weekends of Coachella and Record Store Day. So much music consumption and appreciation! I made it to 9 different record stores here in L.A. on Saturday. Here's a look at my Record Store Day treasures that I'm making my way through. I've had excellent first listens to The Flaming Lips, Lee Hazlewood, and Sacred Bones Todo Muere Volume 2. Animal Collective is next up in the queue.


April 16, 2012

Baseball season is underway, and my hometown Dodgers are off to the best start in the league. Hopefully they can keep it up when they're not playing the Pirates and Padres. I've been to a couple of games so far, including Opening Day. Here we are playing catch on the field after the game. Looking forward to Record Store Day this Saturday, April 21st.


March 30, 2012

After going through a phase of organizing and weeding out some of my record collection, I've now been spending more time adding to it. I've been picking up some inexpensive, but excellent vinyl at thrift stores, estate sales, and flea markets. There have been some great parties lately as well. Birthday parties, potluck parties, and even a magnetic poetry party. I went as "Truth" and "forever". Last week we had our Dodger Season Ticket Draft where we divide up all of our tickets for the season. Here I am putting the stitching on the baseball cupcakes. All of us Dodger fans are glad to have a new ownership team coming in. I'm definitely feeling the optimism of spring.


February 6, 2012

I went to Six Flags Magic Mountain this weekend for a birthday celebration. It was my first roller coaster adventure since I was 17. We packed in lots Thrill Rides and continued the party that evening with coconut cream pie. Last week I was there to see the Clippers blow out the Thunder and All Star Blake Griffin throw down a MONSTER dunk. That weekend before I had a relaxing getaway up in Ojai, CA. Here's a view from the catus garden up on Meditation Mount.


January 23, 2012

2011 finished up strong and the new year is off to a good start. I made it up to Seattle over the holidays and also went over to explore Olympic National park with my family. Here's a picture of me freezing up at Hurricane Ridge. Other recent adventures include a quick getaway to Vegas and going to see the Clippers beat the Lakers.


December 7, 2011

Hurricane-force winds whipped through Los Angeles last week, knocking out power and making this crazy city a little more crazy. Here's a photo of a giant eucalyptus tree that crashed across my street, taking down all of the wires with it. It's made for a challenging week, but I'm always up for a challenge. Looking forward to shows this week from Madlib, Caveman, and Yael Meyer. Maybe someone will hook me up with a ticket to see The Black Keys on Sunday. El Camino is in heavy rotation.

November 29, 2011

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend. I had houseguests from both London (via Berlin) and Ann Arbor and a group of us all had a good time cooking and conversing. Some solid shows that I've hit up recently: 400 Blows, Melt Banana, and Warpaint. I've finished up a few new songs of my own and I am going to debut them live this Friday at the ORG Music night at The Lot 1 Cafe in Los Angeles. I was also recently invited down to the Cy Young Award presentation for Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers. Fernando Valenzuela, Don Newcombe, Vin Scully, Matt Kemp, and a humble Kershaw were in attendance. Here's a picture of me behind the podium.

November 10, 2011

I've seen so much good music in the past month. I saw a bunch of great shows out in NYC last month for the CMJ Music Marathon, but I've kept it going since I've been back. My friend Andy took me the 78th Annual Los Angeles Bach Festival to see a phenomenal performance of Bach's Mass in B Minor. I've also been lucky to see great shows from Gold Panda, Zola Jesus, tUnE-YarDs, and Cut Chemist. In addition, I've been getting back into working on some of my own music. I've been writing lyrics and I'm hoping to finish up some new songs when I go into the studio later this week. Hopefully I'll be able to get out another album in the first half of 2012.


October 3, 2011

Saturday was the 13th annual Eagle Rock Music Festival. People flooded Colorado Blvd. to see some great local, up-and-coming, and underground acts. The Gaslamp Killer and Flying Lotus closed out the night. On Sunday I went to an Oktoberfest Party and enjoyed German beers, food, and music with good friends.


September 26, 2011

What a spectacular weekend. I checked another MLB ballpark off the list by finally going down to San Diego to see a game at Petco. They were hosting the Dodgers this weekend, and I was lucky enough to see Clayton Kershaw win his 21st game of the season. Last night I was invited out to the Kodak Theatre to see the World Premier of Cirque Du Soleil's new production IRIS. The show was fantastic and the red carpet party was extravagant, shutting down Hollywood Blvd. There was plenty of food and drink, a Ferris wheel, and lots of celebrity sightings.

August 31, 2011

Last weekend I had a great time with my buddy John Vanderslice who was in town for his show at the Echo. On Saturday I celebrated the release of 400 Blows new album Sickness & Health down at Vacation Vinyl. Here's a picture of Chuck Dukowski from Black Flag spinning 45s at the party. That night a bunch of us went out to see the band play with the Butthole Surfers at the EchoPlex. It was a punishing show in front of their hometown crowd. FYF Fest is this weekend. Can't wait to see Olivia Tremor Control, Descendents, Explosions in the Sky, Four Tet, and more.


August 15, 2011

I've been cramming in lots of adventures into this last month of summer. Last week I sadly watched the Dodgers get swept by the Phillies, though I did enjoy seeing both Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee pitch and I also got a Duke Snider Bobbblehead. A group of old friends went down to Seal Beach to hang out for the day. Andy B and I swept the competition in shuffleboard. Last night I had a fantastic dinner and went out to see Death to Anders and Califone at The Satellite.


July 25, 2011

How many more Internet distractions do we need? At least a couple more, right? I recently started using Instagram which has been a lot of fun. I also signed up for Spotify on the day it launched, but I have yet to spend much time with it. I still haven't accepted my invite to Google+. Am I missing out?

Saturday night I went to Tonalism - an all night ambient music happening - at the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts. The event ran from 6 PM to 6 AM and featured live performances, DJ sets, and video projections. The dusk-to-dawn event was inspired by La Monte Young’s “Dream House” as well as the work of musicians and composers such as Terry Riley, Yoko Ono and John Cage.

July 4, 2011

Summer is on, people, and I celebrated by having friends over for some good time grilling. We had homemade lemonade and grilled tons of great food: veggie burgers, meat burgers, corn on the cob, hand-made chorizo sausages and portobello mushrooms.  I set up the turntables and friends took turns DJing into the night.  It was a great way to say hello to summer.  I hope you get to see some fireworks tonight; I'll be wearing my new super patriotic hat at Dodgers stadium as they take on the equally financially strapped Mets.


June 13, 2011

I snuck away to San Francisco last weekend. It seems to be impossible to not have an amazing time up there. Susie, Doug, and I went out to AT&T Park to see Tim Lincecum and the Giants get rocked by the Reds. The tickets we had got us into a wine tasting before the game. Other highlights from the trip: burritos, stocking up on new music at Aquarius Records , and watching the Mavs beat the Heat.


June 6, 2011

What a great weekend. On Friday evening I stopped by the Yo Gabba Gabba art opening at Meltdown Comics and then went over to the Troubadour and saw Archers of Loaf play a reunion show. They're one of my favorite bands from back in the day and they played an awesome set of some of their best songs. It was also announced that day that Merge Records is going to be reissuing their long out of print catalog. On Saturday Permanent Records  from Chicago opened a new record store in Eagle Rock. They had a great selection of new and used vinyl and some CDs and cassettes as well. Here's a picture of the tote bag they were giving away. On Saturday night I went out to my first screening of the year at Hollywood Forever Cemetery and saw Harold And Maude for the first time. Andy Votel from Finders Keepers spun records before and after the movie.


May 23, 2011

Just got back from a fantastic trip out to Wilmington, DE for the Non-COMMvention. One thing's for sure: radio people know how to have fun. Non-COMM highlights included performances from Raphael Saadiq, Thurston Moore, Blind Boys of Alabama, and getting to meet Cliff Burnstein. Before flying home I stayed in Philadelphia an extra couple of days. Here I am at the Phillies vs Rangers game, watching Cliff Lee pitch against his old team. That's a beautiful stadium they have there. I also ran the stairs from the movie Rocky up to the Philadelphia Museum of Art where I spent the afternoon looking at their amazing collection. They have so much Duchamp and so many important paintings that I have never seen in person.


May 5, 2011

I've been seeing some great live music over the past week. I went down to KCRW for Jessica Lea Mayfield's Morning Become's Eclectic session and then saw her perform again that night at The Troubadour. The next night I saw Prince at The Forum which was amazing. He brought out Gwen Stefani and Nikka Costa, but it was Sheila E that blew me away. On Sunday night, just as the Osama Bin Laden story was breaking, I made the hour long drive down to Costa Mesa to see We Are Augustines play with The Boxer Rebellion. It was the last night of their tour together so they let loose and were having a ton of fun. Here's a picture of one of the more unique pieces of street art that I've seen in LA lately.


April 28, 2011

This past weekend I saw the visually stimulating Art in the Streets show at MOCA. Here I am about to take Angel's Flight, the "Shortest Railway in the World", up to the museum. The amount of graffiti in Los Angeles has noticeably increased since the show opened. While there's still plenty of ugly tagging around the city, there's been some beautiful new images going up as well. I scored some of the $25 tickets for Prince this weekend! He's currently in the middle of doing a 21-night residency at The Forum.


April 18, 2011

I passed on going to Coachella this weekend to celebrate Record Store Day. I made it out to Vacation, Amoeba, Origami, and Backside Records where I scored a bunch of great Record Store Day exclusives and some other amazing new and old releases. There were lines at record stores around the world and overall it was a huge success. That evening some buddies and I got together and did our own little radio show where we spun at least one track from each release that we picked up that day. So much good music!

April 4, 2011

It's been a good beginning to the baseball season with the Dodgers taking three of four from the Giants. I made it up to the stadium on Thursday for Opening Day and then again last night when everyone in attandance got a free Dodgers Snuggie. You know what I'll be wearing around the house. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to get a photo of me in it in a future update.


March 31, 2011

Happy Opening Day! I'll be headed up to Chavez Ravine this evening to see the Dodgers take on the World Champion San Francisco Giants. It should be a great matchup with Kershaw and Lincecum pitching. Go baseball!

Yesterday I received Chunklet's new Indie Cred Test. If you've never read Chunklet, they're a Georgia based magazine that's been poking fun of the underground music scene since 1993. Their most recent issue features articles from Paul F. Tompkins and Zach Galifianakis. The Indie Cred Test was written and published by Chunklet, illustrated by Jesse LeDoux and serves as a satirical standardized test to see how legit and lame you are - I'll let you know how I do!


March 28, 2011

Tonight I'm hosting the draft for my Dodgers season ticket group. Hope that I'll be going to Opening Day to see them play the rival Giants on Thursday. I'm setting aside some money for Record Store Day on April 16th. Go here to see the full list of Record Store Day releases and events. There are so many amazing titles coming out that day, but the one I'm the most excited about is the Built to Spill picture disc with artwork by Jesse LeDoux.


January 11, 2011

Happy New Year! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season and that 2011 has been treating you well so far. I'm recharged (aside from the jet lag) from a fantastic vacation to United Kingdom. My good friends Dave and Helen were getting married in Wales and I had the honor of being one of the groomsmen. A good group of people stayed in Wales through New Years. I went to my first rugby match and walked along the seaside. After New Years a buddy and I flew up to Edinburgh to tour Scotland for a week. Our journey took us to Loch Ness where we found the Boleskine House that was the estate of Aleister Crowley and later owned by Jimmy Page. We also toured Inverness, Isle of Skye, Fort William, Glen Coe, Oban, and the Glenkinchie Distillery. 23 types of Scotch were tasted. I had a last supper in Scotland of Haggis, Neeps, and Tatties. We flew back to London, toured Parliament, and pulled one last all nighter full of curry, graffiti, and other shenanigans before flying back home to The States. Vacation reading: 17 by Bill Drummond - absolutely brilliant. Here I am in front of Eilean Donan Castle, home of the Clan MacRae.


November 8, 2010

What a good falling-back weekend! I finished reading two incredibly thought-provoking books: Fortune's Fool: Edgar Bronfman, Jr., Warner Music, and an Industry in Crisis by Fred Goodman and Stumbling on Happiness by Daniel Gilbert. I enjoyed getting a view from the top of my old company with the first and digging deeper into my mind with the second. On Saturday a group of us went to the delicious Hugo's Tacos for lunch and found some new things to read at Alias Books in Atwater Village. That night we went to the Giant Robot store for Theo Ellsworth's art opening. I loved getting to see his artwork in person and it was nice to meet him as well. I've been pretty obsessed with his drawing since finding his book Capacity last year at Quimby's in Chicago.

October 26, 2010

I'm back from a great trip out to NYC for this year's CMJ Music Marathon. Highlights included another successful Medium Rotation Radio Mixer where we were able to get quite a few new stations to sign up for the web board, super shows from Infantree and Everest, celebrating my birthday in the city that never sleeps, watching some exciting playoff baseball, setting the high score on Ms. Pac-Man at the Team Clermont party at Barcade, and of course meeting new folks and hanging out with old friends in the radio community. I've been to quite a few CMJs and I think this was my first one where I didn't get sick and I've come home with my voice intact.

September 29, 2010

I had a great time out in Baltimore, MD last week presenting on my film screening campaigns at Noise In The Basement. I returned to Los Angeles just in time for the hottest day in history, reaching 113 degrees. Last night I went out to see The Black Keys put on a super show at the Palladium. It was great to finally see them play songs from Brothers. Tonight I'll be heading down the street for an excellent show that is happening in the Eagle Rock neighborhood. The brilliant Austrian electronic artist Fennesz is making a rare appearance. Also performing is Deakin (Animal Collective), Prince Rama (Paw Tracks), and Sun Araw (one of my 2010 musical obsessions). Going through some old photos I found this one of Serj Tankian, Fawn, and I from CMJ 2007. I thought it was appropriate to share as I'm currently helping out with his new album Imperfect Harmonies.

September 7, 2010

Last week the AmApAc office celebrated the last week of summer with a field trip out to Dodger Stadium. Here's Haley and I taking in some sun and baseball. Labor Day Weekend included more baseball, rocking out to 400 Blows, and hanging out with some good friends, including one that I hadn't seen in over a decade. Saturday was the highly unorganized FYF Fest. While it was nice to see some great sets from Ariel Pink, Sleep, Mountain Goats, Man-Man, and more, the lines were outrageous. The average line for food or water was over 100 people long. When you finally got the front, a small bottle of water was $4. A second time I waited in the line they simply had no water at the front. Diet Coke was the closest substitute. They were running out of food only a few hours into the festival. One friend of mine had to wait 3 hours in the will call line to get their tickets. Way to punish the people that paid in advance for their tickets.

September 2, 2010

And somehow it's September already. I just had a very nice weekend up in the Northwest. I stopped by the Barsuk and Sub Pop offices, catching up with good friends and getting hooked up with some fantastic new CDs. I'm loving this Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba release. My family then headed out to Yakima for my cousin's wedding. We were also able to get in some wine tasting. It was a joy to spend quality time with my extended family. I also had the pleasure of hanging out with Jesse LeDoux before heading back home.

July 26, 2010

I recently went out to hot and humid Chicago for the Pitchfork Music Festival. Highlights of the trip: Pavement, Lightning Bolt, stumbling upon a free T.P. Orchestre Poly-Rythmo concert at Millenium Park, picking up some great new publications at Chris Ware's Quimby's Bookstore, and finally checking out the Art Institute's museum. Last Wednesday I saw the Dead Weather put on a fantastically heavy rock and roll show at the Palladium. This past weekend I checked out the inspiring John Baldessari exhibit at LACMA.


July 12, 2010

I'm looking for productivity to increase now that the World Cup is over. Vuvuzela forever! I went to the final baseball game before the All-Star break last night and saw the Dodgers whip the Cubbies. Tomorrow I'll be cheering on the National League and four Dodger All-Stars. This weekend I saw the movie Cyrus and loved it. Fantastic work from the Duplass brothers and highly recommended. Let me know if you're going to be out in Chicago for the Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend. Good times lie ahead.


June 28, 2010

Last Thursday a group of us went to a backyard Solstice Salon Screening featuring rare film shorts from the late 60s / early 70s. There was some short documentary work, freakout music performances and psychedelic animation, with live sitar and tabla accompaniment to the silents. They also debuted a projector kleidoscope that my friend has been building over the last year. I went to two of the Dodgers vs Yankees games over the weekend. Unfortunately the Dodgers lost both games by one run. And I'm still watching plenty of World Cup.


June 24, 2010

On Tuesday, the AmApAc office took a field trip to Laurel Canyon to see Carolina Chocolate Drops play an acoustic set as part of Go Music's Mimosa Music series.  The gang enjoyed bagels, delicious Carmela ice cream (they even had a Carolina Chocolate Drops flavor just for the show), mimosas, and of course, a great set by the Carolina Chocolate Drops.  Violinist Justin Robinson forgot his jug, so the band improvised, using a Diet Snapple bottle.  The intimate crowd couldn't help but tap their feet and clap their hands along with this incredibly talented string trio.  Thanks to Gary Calamar, his wife, and his team for hosting such a lovely midday concert.  Thanks also to Julie Muncy of Warner Bros. for organizing.

June 21, 2010

I just got back from a great weekend out in Boston. Thanks to Steve, Doug, and Canada from Pirate! for showing me a good time on my first trip to the city. Most of our days were spent watching sports. Besides our daily intake of World Cup we went to two games at Fenway Park, including Manny Ramirez's first game back in Boston. The streets were saddened on Thursday night after the Lakers beat the Celtics in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. I'm not a fan of either team, but it would've been fun to celebrate in the winning city. On Saturday we went up to Maine and stopped at the coastal town of Ogunquit. We had a nice walk along the Atlantic Ocean and had some delicous lobster for dinner.


June 14, 2010

Hope you all had a good weekend. Much of mine revolved around the World Cup. I've yet to get up in time to see the 4:30 AM PST games, but I've been watching most of the others. I have to be satisfied with the outcome of the USA-England match, although now the pressure is on to win these next matches. Friday night I watched the Dodgers get blown out by the Angels in the Freeway Series opener, Saturday night I went to Rose's Pawn Shop's Record Release Party at Spaceland, and Sunday night a group of us went back to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery Screening for Michelangelo Antonioni's Blowup.


June 7, 2010

Lately it has been a lot of work during the week and plenty of fun on the weekends. Three weekends ago I went wine tasting just North of Santa Barbara. Over Memorial Day Weekend I went to two screenings at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery: North By Northwest on Saturday and Purple Rain with Dam-Funk and Peanut Butter Wolf DJing on Sunday. I just got home last night from a great weekend camping in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. Here I am next to a giant sequoia tree that was cut down. How refreshing to get out of Los Angeles to a place without cell reception.


May 20, 2010

I went to both Flying Lotus shows in Los Angeles last weeked. The Friday night one was one of the loudest, bass-heavy shows I've ever attended. Saturday night featured Gaslamp Killer, Gonjasufi, Ravi Coltrane, and the debut performance of Flying Lotus' incredible new band: Infinity. Tuesday was bobblehead night for the Triple Crown threat, Andre Ethier. The Dodgers won, stretching their winning streak to 9 games, but Mr. Ethier was not in attendance because he broke his pinkie last weekend. Hope he heals quickly. Looking forward to Everest and Minus the Bear tonight at the Mayan Theatre.


May 13, 2010

Lots of great stuff has been going on this past week. Last Thursday I hosted Craft Night at my place for the first time. I did a bit of doodling, but my main craft was making food for everyone. On Saturday evening I went to the Getty Museum for the Les Savy Fav show with a great group of friends. It had been a while since I last saw them, and they still put on a thrilling and energetic show. On Sunday I hiked Runyon Canyon for the first time. The trail gives you one of the best views of Los Angeles. I just can't believe it took me so long to see it. More crafting is scheduled for tonight and I have tickets for the Flying Lotus full band performance tomorrow night. Good times in sunny Southern California.


May 3, 2010

I had a fantastic, fun-filled weekend. My good friend Wes from Barsuk was in town for the Phantogram show. On Saturday we had a delicious brunch and went up to the Griffith Observatory. That night I went out for Mexican food and then to the Dodger game. Andre Ethier hit a 3-run HR and they beat the Pirates 5-1. On Sunday I went to the Amoeba Garage Sale and picked up some steeply discounted 90s indie rock 7 inches. Afterwards I went to the Hollywood Farmers Market and bought some veggies and herbs. I picked up some clay pots and soil on the way home and planted my new herbs. I finished off the weekend with a Les Blank music documentary screening held at the house of the guy who puts on the Hollywood Forever Cemetery screenings.


April 26, 2010

What a nice and relaxing weekend in Southern California. On both Saturday and Sunday I went to Unique LA, the largest independent design show in the country. There were over 300 designers and artists showing and selling their work and thousands of people in attendance.


April 19, 2010

Hope you had a good weekend. Mine was full of fun. Saturday was Record Store Day. I went to four different stores in Los Angeles: Origami, Vacation, Amoeba, and Rockaway. Here a look at my stash of Record Store Day finds. It was so exciting to see the Built to Spill 7" in stores with my drawing on the cover. All of the stores were packed and Record Store Day seemed to be a huge success around the world. Thanks for supporting your independent record stores. Saturday night we did a S**tledger Radio Broadcast and then went dancing at The Echo's Funky Sole night.

Sunday was full of sports. I went to the Dodgers vs. Giants game where a great pitchers' duel ended with Manny hitting a pinch-hit 2-run home run to win the game. Later on I watched some of the NBA playoffs, and was happy to see both the Mavs and Blazers win.


April 16, 2010

I passed on going to see Pavement last night and instead finished a drawing that I had been working on for months. Plans for the weekend: no Coachella, record shopping, Birthday Karaoke Dance Party, Dodgers vs Giants, and NBA playoffs.


April 15, 2010

Baseball season is underway. I was at the Dodgers home opener Tuesday afternoon, watching every Dodger outfielder hit a home run as they cruised to an easy 9-5 victory over the D-backs. Coachella is this weekend, but I believe I'll be staying home. I've said that the last two years and still ended up out there for at least one day of the festival. I'm planning to celebrate Record Store Day on Saturday by stopping by as many Los Angeles area stores as I can. I'll probably start at Amoeba and then make my way to Vacation and Origami, the two all vinyl stores in the city.


April 5, 2010

Hope you all had a good Easter weekend. On Saturday I had a nice brunch with friends, went to an engagement party where I also got to watch some Final Four basketball, and then went to the Bell Gardens' record release party for their new Hangups Need Company EP. The MLB season kicked off yesterday with a great game between the Yankees and Red Sox. The Dodgers just got their season underway, playing the Pirates in Pittsburgh.


April 2, 2010

I'm getting used to life without the beard.

One of my drawings is going to be used as the artwork for a 7" that is coming out on Record Store Day (April 17th, 2010). More details to follow. Go here for the full list of Record Store Day releases. Maybe you can guess which one it is.

The Yankees and Red Sox kick off the MLB season this Sunday. Unfortunately I have to wait until April 13th for the Dodgers home opener. Go baseball!


March 29, 2010

Hope you all had a good weekend. The Bell Gardens show on Friday night was fantastic. It was nice to see a lot of friendly faces in the audience as it was the Radar Bros. record release party. I'm looking forward to seeing Bell Gardens again this Saturday when they celebrate their upcoming debut release, Hangups Need Company . I spent most of the weekend resting and recovering from a bit of a fever and SXSW. It was nice to watch some of the NCAA Tournament in bed on my laptop. Yesterday felt like the first day of summer. It reached 85 degrees and I went to my first BBQ of the year. I decided that it was also time to shave off the beard that I have been growing since November 1st. Here's a photo taken about halfway through the trimming.


March 26, 2010

My group's Dodgers season ticket draft was at my place on Tuesday night. For my first three picks I got a pair of tickets for one of the Yankees games, Opening Day, and Andre Ethier Bobblehead Night. I got some good drawing in at Craft Night last night. Tonight I'm going out to Spaceland to see Bell Gardens and Radar Brothers. I'll definitely need the weekend to finally fully recover from SXSW.


March 22, 2010

I had a great time out in Austin, TX this past week for SXSW. Highlights were: Sun Araw, beef brisket, GWAR, walking down 6th St on St. Patrick's Day as the bars let out, Carolina Chocolate Drops, the Third Man Records pop up store, Black Keys listening party with Pat, and not getting sick. I've already had a house guest since coming home. One of my old friends from college was passing through town. Tomorrow night we're divvying up our Dodgers season tickets. Opening Day is on the horizon. This Friday night is the first show from a new local band that I've recently started working with called Bell Gardens. I'm looking forward to checking them out when they'll be opening up for the Radar Bros. at their record release party at Spaceland.


March 15, 2010

I saw a great ROCK show last Thursday with 400 Blows and Thee Oh Sees. The next day I started feeling under the weather and spent most of the weekend catching up on sleep. Ready or not, here comes Austin.

BBQ and Shiner!


March 8, 2010

Getting called in for jury duty ended up not being that bad. It was a beautiful day in downtown Los Angeles and a friend of mine happened to get called in on the same day. We got brought in for two possible cases, both for people on trial for murder. I was excused from both since they were expected to last for 2-4 weeks and I have travel plans booked next week for SXSW. Speaking of, let me know if you plan on being in Austin next week. I'm looking forward to some tasty BBQ.

News of the Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse) suicide was a terrible way start to the day yesterday. I shouldn't look at the internet before I get out of bed. I just rolled over and went back to sleep, hoping to wake up to another new day a couple hours later. In the afternoon I stopped by and hung out with 400 Blows in the studio. Their new recordings are turning out great. I can't wait to hear the finished album.


March 4, 2010

I've been jamming to some great new tunes that I bought up in San Francisco at Aquarius Records this past week: Omar Souleyman, Pantha Du Prince, Blues Control, King Midas Sound, and Black Man's Cry: The Inspiration of Fela Kuti. I got called in for jury duty today, so it might take me a bit longer than usual to get back to you. Who's excited for SXSW?


March 1, 2010

I got home late last night from a trip up to San Francisco for this year's Noise Pop festival. It's pretty much impossible to not have an amazing time up there. Two A man A plan A canal artists were playing: Tiny Television and The Magnetic Fields. Other highlights from the trip: MOMA's 75th Anniversary exhibit, Mission Burritos, Four Tet, Single Malt Scotch, Mediterranean Tapas, City Lights Books, Aquarius Records, and Beautiful Weather.


February 22, 2010

Last week we got my stand-up Ms. Pac-Man machine up and running. I had a party on Saturday night to celebrate. Here I am setting the high score of this night at 152,950. That's nothing compared to the personal all-time best score of 263,040 that I got the night after we fixed it.

I finished my first book of the year over the weekend: Bill Drummond's 45. I loved every page of this memoir from the KLF / K Foundation member. I had no idea that he managed Echo & The Bunnymen too. Also highly recommended is his book The Manual (How to Have a Number One the Easy Way), co-written with his partner-in-crime Jimmy Cauty


February 15, 2010

I hope you enjoyed / are enjoying the Valentines vs. Presidents weekend. I went to the Commerce Casino to play Texas Hold 'Em for the first time in ages. I lost a bit, but had a great time. I also went over and sold a bunch of bad CDs at Amoeba and came home with good ones: Dam-Funk, 5 Years of Hyperdub, Four Tet, Sunn O))), David Sylvian, and Pan Sonic vs. Keiji Haino. Quality listening lies ahead.


February 13, 2010

This past Superbowl Sunday I attended Guac Bowl X. Once again the competition was fierce with dozens of eclectic guacamole entries. My friend Tim won two trophies for his entry of “The Guacapellas”.

While I have never entered the competition myself, I have been going since the beginning. I even tallied up the votes for the first one. The only Guac Bowl that I missed was when I was following Jeff Tweedy up and down the West Coast in 2006. That just happened to be the year the Seattle Seahawks, the team I grew up watching, made it to the Super Bowl. Fortunately I was able to watch the game with some great friends and fellow Seahawk fans up in Portland, OR. Unfortunately they lost to the Steelers. It's so strange that Los Angeles still does not have an NFL team. For the most part it seems that people here follow either the Raiders or the Chargers as their local team.

Visit www.guacbowl.com for more info on the greatest and most celebrated guacamole competition/SuperBowl party in the world.


February 9, 2010

I had a great party at my place on Friday night for some close guy friends that are going to be fathers soon. Here I am typing this update. Hope you all had a good Super Bowl weekend.


February 2, 2010

Babies were the theme of the weekend. On Saturday there was a birthday party for twin girls turning three. In attendance were at least two other sets of twins. The theme was Fairies and Pirates, and the cuteness factor was a little overwhelming. Here are two of the guests dressed as Robin Hood. Four of my good friends from college are expecting babies and on Sunday there was a wonderful shower to celebrate. Bekah and I finished wrecking havoc in Los Angeles and she's back up in Seattle starting her new job at Sub Pop.


January 25, 2010

Hope you all had a great weekend. Bekah arrived on Saturday morning and we've been having a great time under the sunny and smogless Southern California skies. We decided not to splurge $500 each to see Radiohead last night and opted for a lazy day of football watching. Within an hour of driving her rental car we had a flat tire. Here's a photo of her and the AAA man changing the Yaris' tire on Sunset Blvd.

Let me know if you have new office hours for the new year. It would also be a good time to make check and make sure that I am on the list to receive your emails.


January 18, 2010

Hope all has been well with you during this winter season. Now if only CMJ could get their act together. It might be time for someone to step forward and create an alternative.

I've spent much of the past month reorganizing my office, growing a beard, and getting ready for a fantastic 2010.

Let me know if you're planning on being up in San Francisco for this year's Noise Pop festival at the end of February. Both Tiny Television and The Magnetic Fields are playing, so I plan to be up there.

Let me know if you have new office hours for the new year.


December 7, 2009

Happy holidays. My fake tree has made it up from the garage, but hasn't been put up yet. I'm slowly getting into the spirit. We're having what is possibly our first real rainstorm of the year in Los Angeles. I had two great museum visits this weekend: Joseph Beuys at LACMA and Collection: MOCA's First Thirty Years.

I was saddened hearing of the death of the exceptional guitarist Jack Rose this weekend. Heart attack at 38. Terrible. A fine tribute can be found at Arthur. Arthur Fest was the only time I saw him play in person. R.I.P.



I am playing in NYC at a CMJ showcase this Saturday, October 24th at 7:45 PM. Check the Shows section for all of the info.

It’s been far too long since the last update…so here we go:

My self-titled debut record is finally coming out. May 20th, 2008 is the
official release date. I don’t think the CD will be in very many stores
that day. I am also doubtful that it will be available on all of the
digital retailers such as iTunes, Rhapsody, and the like. I’m doing my
best, but I am only one person. The CD is available on my website and at
all live performances for the time being, and coming soon elsewhere. I’ll
keep you in the loop.

To celebrate I am having a record release party in Los Angeles. Here are
the details:

I am putting the finishing touches on an album that I finished last year and hope to have it available by this fall. It was recorded by former Mighty Lemon Drop, David Newton (The Little Ones, The Movies, Aberdeen) and mixed at Tiny Telephone by Scott Solter. Hope to get the final master and the artwork finished soon.

I’ve been recording quite a bit this past year with Mr. Newton and have some projects in the works to come out in 2008.

Hello, www.grahammacrae.com is now live. The store section will be up
soon. Thanks to all of you that were able to make it out for the "Sing
Song Celebration" last month.
