Sage Francis “makes it up” to Portland and Seattle

The Metermaids and Sadistik have been added to both shows! Details below…

Portland and Seattle...this kiss is for you.

In 2010 I was in the middle of my LI(F)E Tour when I received word of my father’s passing. Due to this horrible news, I cut my Seattle show short and canceled the Portland show in order to fly home and attend the funeral services. Since that time I haven’t heard the end of it from people in these territories, so a little more than a year later I’m coming through on a promise to do the make-up shows.

For those who were unable to catch my Colorado shows last weekend with the Metermaids and B. Dolan, you missed some incredible performances. One of the shows had us performing in front of a rolling river. We upstaged the shit out of that beautiful river.

Anti-Swag and Sage’s interview with Scene Magazine

People often ask me about my writing process. It’s not easy for me to explain, and there’s no particular ritual to my craft, but I figure the best thing to do is just show you how I write.

Alas, that question wasn’t asked in the following interview Read the rest of this entry »

Busting a Luna Moth out of Spiderweb Prison

When I noticed this magnificent creature outside of my front door I took a picture of it and posted it on my facebook page to see if anyone knew what it was. As it turns out, it’s not a leaf bird. Also, it’s not a stingray-kite hybrid. It is, in fact, a Luna Moth (yes, the same one that Lunesta uses in their commercials to push their dreamy drugs.) However, I discovered that this Luna Moth was stuck in a spiders web! I bravely decided to be super courageous and film myself breaking it free into freedom. To liberate the Luna. Once the mam-moth was carefully placed on its freedom leaf I heroically transported it over to some safety shrubs.

The very next day I was surprised to see this lunatic back on the side of my house, stalking me in broad daylight. All the spiders were gone because they starved to death. The weather turned erratic and it became clear to me that I unwittingly destroyed RI’s ecosystem. Suddenly, lightning struck a tree and a branch fell on top of me. The moth swooped down, removed the branch and said, “We’re even now.” Then he vanished. The clouds opened up and a smiling sunshine double rainbowed my street.

That was my past 24 hours.

 

I'm pretty much a hero

 

P.S. I found your ‘electronic-spy-on-sage-moth.’ If you need it back, that will come at a cost.

Scribble Jam 2004 – “Jah” and “Buzzkill”

In 2004 I debuted two brand new songs at Scribble Jam. They were “Jah Didn’t Kill Johnny” and “The Buzzkill.” As they were fresh off the page I flubbed a couple lines but not too bad. Both songs ended up the book ends of my A Healthy Distrust album a year later.

I’m not sure the majority of the crowd knew how to react. I mean, this was Scribble Jam of course. Most people are expecting battle raps and punchlines so they can all go “Ohhhhh!!!!!” in unison. Regardless, Scribble Jam is an important part of indie-hop history. A history that is untold and unrecognized by most media outlets and music culture archivists, but some day it will be realized. “Thems was the good ole days, I tells ya!”
