Last Saturday night I stopped by Dead Wax Records in St.Louis, MO to see my friends Beth Bombara & John Calvin Abney perform a quiet intimate acoustic show there.

John also mentions his music video for "Way Out" which is now available! I had a very small part in the making of this, so I was excited to see it. John had asked me to us some video I shot of him and Chris Porter on stage together at Off Broadway a year ago that he used in the video. It turned out beautifully! Love this song!
