Does anyone still use this? I guess i'll be the first to post from the New year. I hope this finds you well, and sorry if i'm a little late with this.

Part one : Straight from the source, Colin Meloy live set available this April. On April 8, Kill rock stars will release Colin Meloy sings live, a fourteen song set documenting Colin's 2006 solo United states tour. As those of you know who saw the shows, Colin stripped down to an acoustic guitar and was accompanied by a skull named Cheryl, a ship named Maya Angelou, and a small stuffed sheep named Erick. The album will be released in the United states and Canada on CD and double gate fold vinyl. We expect to announce a European release date shortly. The track listing will be as listed below.

Part two : Colin will embark on an extended United states tour beginning this April seventh at La zona rosa. The twenty odd run (There is a chance we may announce one or two more dates) coincides with the release of Colin's debut solo album, Colin Meloy sings live, out April on CD, double gate fold vinyl, and digital outlets everywhere on the Kill rock stars label. Singer, song writer Laura Gibson will be the supporting act for the full tour. Presale tickets will be available beginning Friday, February 1st at noon EST. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning the following Friday, February 8th. Check venue websites for exact ticket on sale information. Following in the tradition of previous EPs, Colin Meloy sings Shirley Collins and Colin Meloy sings Morrisey, Colin will be selling an EP only available on this run : Colin Meloy sings Sam Cooke, a collection of five Cooke songs, intimately arranged and performed by Colin, with Laura Gibson singing harmonies throughout.

I already got my presale tickets for the LA show. It should be an amazing one seeing as i've seen him on all his other solo runs when he comes through Los angeles. Plus the Henry Fonda theater is my favorite and it is the theater I was at when I went to my first Decemberists show.
