"...utter heartbreak and beauty all at once... excellent strings on this project include a fiddle that will make you weep into your glass of hooch, the tender mandolin and more..." - Tony Dushane, SFGate

"...a blend of vaudeville, gypsy jazz and Southern-Gothic" - TwangNation.com

"...the excellent alcohol soaked, murder ballad, steam punk band." - Tony Dushane, SFGate

"Atmospheric, literate, romantic drinking songs.  What more do you want out of life?" - Geoff Berner


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. If you like the songs, please share it on your facebook, mention it in your blog, throw a link somewhere sometime. Every little bit helps.Big love to you all and let's keep building this awesome musical community of awesome. xoxoxo

some days - especially sundays - are funny. so i didn't go to the park and squeezebox. instead i went to the mall. wait now - before you get all weird about it - that's really only the beginning of the story. so i went to the mall and bought a tank top. wahoo - i am living large. and then headed to black heart tattoo for the consult. punchline of that. i didnt realize my consult was an appt. i thought it was a period of time on sundays when consults happened. bad communication. ok well - thankfully i was only 6 mins late for my consult. which then took 10 mins. tattoo is planned. now since the place is right next to zeitgeist i decided hell - [personal profile] gordonzola  likes to meet me at zeit for beer. so i had texted him earlier to see if he wanted to. he is one of my favorite zeit pals and yay he was up for it. but because the consult wasn't first come first serve and was pretty quick - i was there early. got my bloody mary. sat down and huzzah is that cribbage i hear next to me at the table? what commenced involved a lot of cribbage, crashing a bday party, a lot of bloody marys and something close to a sunburn. still plannin on k'v after some food. woot. best sunday in a while. here are pics of me, [personal profile] gordonzola and hillary - who was turning 30 and likes to play cribbage.
