Here's a link to the brand spanking new album from the Oakland based Rhubarb Whiskey. We wrote and recorded the whole album at a home studio near Lake Merritt on a steady diet of wine, whiskey and cajun food. Full of drinkin songs and murder ballads it has been described by everyone that's heard it as completely addictive.
The link on the photo takes you to the bandcamp page where you can download it sliding scale so that if you're broke like us you can still afford it.
Also - my music lovin friends - please help us spread the word. We threw so much love and grit into these songs, we just gotta try and get em out into the world. So help. Please Please help.

today the wind blew me over to marin. i tried very hard to get lost and did not succeed. i did succeed in buying a very cool pair of earrings and losing one of them between the store and the car. i also got a cuppa coffee and sat in a gorgeous park in fairfax.
then i went to target and ran into folks from my old job that it was amazing to see
AND THEN i got the wife and i takeout from our favorite mexican place in berkeley and brought it home to her
it was after all of that that me and my accordion bonded, argued, laughed and cried.
