Damon Wood

Curtis Bumpy @ Jupiter, Friday 6/6/2008

May 27th, 2008

Curtis Bumpy shakes up the Jupiter once more on Friday the 6th, the same night that Fishbone rocks the Shattuck Down Low (w/the Uptones and Sun House), making downtown Berkeley the place to be that night. This time we will be joined by Eric Garland on drums and Joshi Marshall on saxophone, along with Paige Weber and perhaps some more friends on vocals.

Just to clarify

I’m not that Damon Wood.

It’s hilarious and ironic, though. Imagine my bemusement: having had this fantasy for years that one day I’d be called (by, I don’t know, whoever makes those calls) to play in James Brown’s band… and then discovering one day that James Brown’s band did, in fact, fill that slot toward the end with some other blond white-boy guitarist named Damon Wood.

Would it… drive you nuts? Make you quietly giggle with the delusional certainty that the universe has played a very small and personal prank on you? Does the universe use The Google? Or does it just punish you for running one too many vanity searches?

What are the odds? Apparently, 100%.

Oh well. At least Prince is still around… and I’ll bet he’s desperate for my help! Anyway, I’ve been meaning to clear that up for a while. I’m sure the music world will breathe a huge collective sigh of relief.

So, Damon: right on, bro! I mean, the other Damon.

Show: Message of Love @ Kensington Circus, 5/3/08

May 1st, 2008

The Bay Area’s Chrissiest Pretenders tribute band will be playing at Kensington Circus Pub this Saturday night, May 3. Family-friendly, in fact it’s practically family-required. I love the Circus. It’s the best place in the East Bay to bump into those friends of yours who just had kids in the last couple of years, who are desperate to get out of the house and have a beer in public but can’t get a babysitter. At least one of my kids will be there.

Message of Love will commence rocking at 9:00.
