Watch Yours Truly’s New John Vanderslice Video! North.American Tour Starts Today In Portland


Today NPR premiered the live video of John Vanderslice’s “Overcoat” from the White Wilderness recording sessions. JV, Minna Choi and her Magik*Magik Orchestra’s were filmed by Yours Truly at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California.


Click here to watch the video at NPR and read a bit more about JV’s experience, “That whole session was so challenging for me and so inspiring and thrilling that halfway through the first day, I thought this is the way I need to make records – this is it.”

John Vanderslice begins a nation-wide tour today, the majority of which is with Damien Jurado. JV has declared both April and May “Audience Participation Month” and has these words to share about the tour:

So, as you may have heard, April is Audience Participation Month. We kindly ask you to be part of our live show in one of the following ways.
– You can sing lead or harmony vocal on “Trance Manual”
– You can play a solo on “Exodus Damage” with an instrument of your choice, the weirder the better.
– You can trigger that cool squiggly sound in “Underneath The Leaves”.
– You can also choose your own adventure. Again, the stranger the better.

Email me with your awesome ideas.
NB: May is also Audience Participation Month.

The 6/17 concert at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco will include instrumentation by 30 members of the Magik*Magik Orchestra.
