The Bottomless Suitcase : Case no. 01061311 - Ravens Live in the Lobby

The Bottomless Suitcase is a project to release oddities, rarities, absurdities and assundry recording and videos that I 've been involved with. It's meant as a sort of Cabinet of Curiosities, a Wunderkammer.

In today's first installment: a live recording of "Ravens" from the WUOG 90.5 Live in the Lobby show, October 8, 2009. This features myself on vocals, guitar and special agent John Barner on secret technical shenanigans. Video by Harold Falloompo - my longtime art department collaborator. Hope you like it. - Don

I think it is wonderful and for that reason I want to plug my friend Nigel's blog, which is a music lovers journal that just gets better and better. Nigel was a most gracious host while I was visiting London a few years ago, plus he's a damn fine writer. The latest entry is about the Titanic...

I will happily resort to stereotype and say that the Irish need no excuse for festivities so should we really be surprised that Belfast celebrated the 100th anniversary, of the ill-fated launch ...

Website, Shows, Giants is under construction so we will be using this site for updates. Thanks to Jenn Bryant for helping us.

We have two shows coming up this summer in Athens, Athfest on the second stage Saturday June 25 at around 7pm. Then August 9 we will be playing the grand opening week of the mighty Georgia Theatre (see picture above). I haven't been back to there since the day we filmed the video, I'm very excited to see what Wilmont has done with the place.

I found this guy by the side of the road in Washington , Ga. He looks so forlorn beside the closed sign, but I think he also means business. cheers - Don
