Dare likes to play any place where people want to hear him—living rooms, stadiums, art galleries, derelict strip malls, glitzy music venues filled with trend-setting starlets, fire-gutted churches with free enchiladas. Write STS Booking, and together we will find a way:

All Together Now at Mazarine Records


Words have been given, hands have been shaken, and I’m very excited to announce that I have joined the terrific group of lovelies at Mazarine Records in Athens, Georgia.  Mazarine is Athens’ youngest and coolest record label—biased, me?  Their artists include post-rock heroes pacificUV and much-adored indie folksters Hope for Agoldensummer.  They’re reinventing the way record companies do business.  And I’m thrilled that Thugs and China Dolls will be released by them!

March Newsletter: Curiouser and Curiouser


Horizon Watchers and Sidewalk-crack Counters,

Bits of reality, formed in invisible places, have been known to suddenly appear and fly right by without my taking notice. Sometimes these bits, large and small, will plop right down in my lap and force me to do things that are not on any of the reigning lists. This can be trying, but I do my best to accommodate reality’s demands.
