Monday. October 18. The Garage. Old Calf. 8pm.

My lucky number is seven.  Why?  I have seven holes in my head, that's why.  That's not the only reason, but it's reason enough.  This calf was born with seven legs.  After delivery via C-section, it lived less than 10 minutes.  I like to think it lived for seven minutes.  Sad, but inspirational.

On October 18th at 8pm sharp, please come to the Garage, in the shadow of the R.E. Lee equestrian monument and Hill and Wood Funeral Home for a set from OLD CALF.

Ned Oldham w/Doug Paisley and Television Hill at Windup Space in Baltimore on October 14

A good reunion of old friends, and a new meeting.  Ned brings the new 7" and welcomes a little help from old friends Dave Heumann, Walker Teret, and (drum roll, per favore) Anomoanon drummer Jack Carneal.  Also, Ned lends some help to Television Hill--it's happened before and it's going to happen again.  Windup Space, in the station north neighborhood of Baltimore, also welcomes Doug Paisley, who is touring in support of his fine new album, Constant Companion, release date October 12th on No Quarter Records, for which label Ned and Old Calf are in the studio October 11+, tracking their debut album, Borrow a Horse... it's a tangled web.  The show is on Thursday, October 14.  First set is Ned's; then Doug; then Television Hill.  Please come!
