So I haven't updated my site in awhile, and while that is typical of most artists who get excited about the prospect of announcing to the world via the web, some of us really do get slammed with touring a work, and not just 5 day bouts of C.O.D. (although I play my share of that!) So it's Oct, and I'm on tour....again. This time I'm writing to you from Austin, TX. I just finished up dates in Phoenix, Dallas, Austin, Houston, and am now back in Austin, because who the hell wants to hang in Houston?! I'll be at the Side Bar tonight, but for now, it's time to update the site, the newsletter and more. Myself, and 4 friends are all sitting at the coffee shop now--1 at least suffers from the same ailment of being too busy. Maybe it's time to hire an intern to abuse, not pay, make wash cars and then unleash them in the ring at the local karate championship.
The summer was incredible, starting with the birth of my son Maximilian Joseph Dietrich. After that is was the San Diego Comic Con, at which I had a record year! Then it was off to Identity Fest for 6 weeks on the road selling art to 16 year olds with no money and too many drugs.
So for now, I'm in Austin getting ready for tonight's event and ready to move on to the Voodoo Music Fest in New Orleans this weekend!!!! Thanks to everyone who has made this summer a fantastic one--Identity Fest, Rob Zombie/Marilyn Manson Rock Vegas, Madmen Ent., Icon Lounge, 1015 Folsom, Raw SF, Raw SD, Facebook, Vincent Gordon, Christian, Iyya, SF Joe, Emazing Lights, Koalacore Clothing, and all the other clubs, promoters, friends, family and randoms that contributed. Check back for more updates!
