November 28 -- Ned Oldham with Jordan Perry Open for Angel Olsen at the Jefferson Theater

As grateful and excited as if we carried this garden in the bed of our truck to be opening for Angel Olsen at the Jefferson on November 28.  Ned Oldham with Jordan Perry, two electric guitars.  Hoping to be celebrating the release of the final two parts of the Dark Mountain songs on or before this date--more on this in this space soon.

The Bass I used on Arise Therefore, Viva Last Blues, and pretty much everything where I played bass until now

Want to buy a bass?
This somewhat ugly duckling has been mine since around 1989 when I bought it new from Charlottesville Music.  I was the bass player and sometimes singer for cover band Little Smoke (named after the Carlos Castenada ally).  I've used it pretty much whenever I played bass since then, and the best recorded examples are definitely on the Palace releases Viva Last Blues and Arise Therefore.  It has also gone out on loan to Dave Heumann and Walker Teret.  It's not like I think it's some super-valuable collector's item, but I thought there might be someone out there who would be keen to own it as a bass with some interesting history.  It is also a great-playing, great-sounding bass.  It is a Fender P-Bass Lyte in Frost White with gold hardware, and I don't think I was ever in love with its cosmetics; rather, its playability, functionality, lightness and tone.  

Anymore, I don't play a lot of bass, but since a friend loaned me a standard precision bass with string-through body about twelve years ago, I've kept my eyes open for a good deal on one and just the other day found one and bought it (from a dude in Richmond who was planning to go see ten Phish shows in New York and decided to just go ahead and move there, so was potlatching).  I don't need two basses, and refuse to be sentimental.  Plus, I need the space.

If you're interested, please contact me through my agent, Craig.

Thanks Juan Molina!
