Good news for all you Calvin and Hobbes fans in Baltimore and the DC area. There will be a couple of screenings of ‘Dear Mr. Watterson’ in the area and we’ll be playing some songs from the film score, live, before both screenings. And if people have questions, I’ll be sticking around to do a Q & A after each screening. Also, Nevin Martell (author of ‘Looking for Calvin and Hobbes’ and prominently featured in the film) will be there for the Q & A at the DC screening.

Hey friends, thanks to everyone who came out to our show at The W Hotel in DC at POV Lounge! They were kind enough to post a video of Civilized Man. Check it out…
W Hotel POV Live: We Were Pirates from WornCreative on Vimeo.
We’re playing a FREE show on the the roof of W Washington D.C. Hotel at POV Rooftop Lounge & Terrace at W on Thursday, December 19. See you there….
This weekend, This American Life played one of the songs from the Dear Mr. Watterson Soundtrack called, ‘A Strange Experience,’ on Episode 512: House Rules. You can stream the episode on the This American Life website or on Soundcloud (It plays at the 4:21 mark of the Prologue). I’m a huge fan of the show and am honored that they used one of my songs…especially on such an important episode that deals with the history of the Fair Housing laws (learn more at ProPublica). I would highly recommend checking out the episode.
And if you like the song, you can find it on iTunes or Bandcamp.
We Were Pirates – Kill Me (Part 3)

If you haven’t downloaded the soundtrack yet, you can get it on Bandcamp and iTunes. Oh and LA Times had some kind words about it in their film review. They said: “An enjoyable score by We Were Pirates adds to the fun.”

DCist was kind enough to ask me a few questions about the Dear Mr. Watterson score. Check it out if you’re curious about the process….
Oh and you can pick up a copy of the score on iTunes, Bandcamp, or Amazon.com/mp3. Thanks!
Within the past year, everybody I know has started having kids (including sometimes WWP guitarist Gabe Fry. Shouts out to Ambrose!). This is not hyperbole. Everyone. So, if I know you, you have kids now. That’s just how this works. I don’t really understand it myself, but I think it has something to do with science.
Anyway, this is great timing, because Rock-n-Romp DC recently started back up after some time off and we’re playing their next show. It’ll be this Saturday at the DC Meet Market with Your Pal Pete. Pete starts at noon and we play at 2pm. We’ve played a couple of RnR shows in the past and they’ve always been a blast. So, come hang out and bring that happy family of yours!
Good news! Dear Mr. Watterson was picked up for distribution and will be in theaters on November 15! And Paste Magazine was kind enough to give the film score a shout-out in their article about the release.
