04-09-2009 – California State University Chico – Chico, CA

Another great crowd greeted me a Chico State! A good time was had by all and ever caught up with an old college buddy who lived in the area and came to the show. Also got to meet Chris who said he’d heard PATRICK THE SPOILER on Dr. Demento. It was great to meet him! Now if only something could be done with that pesky “Bad Joke Alarm” that kept going off! Here’s the set list.

BAD INFLUENCE

Now it’s off to Eastern Oregon University, by way of Boise, ID. Apparently that’s the closest airport to EOU. I’ve been thinking it may be time to retire ONLINE LOVE. It still gets laughs but it’s outdated. I mean who meets women online and has no idea what they look like? Does that happen anymore? So tonight may be the last time I play it. Perhaps it can go in for retooling? Don’t know.

03-27-2009 – Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University – Prescott, AZ

A fantastic show at Embry-Riddle last night. The crowd was fantastic (even ‘Spring Break Guy’) and the campus activities board was super accommodating! These are the kind of college shows I like! Here’s what was played…

Thanks again to the students and staff of Embry-Riddle! I’m just hoping I didn’t get caught by any of these pesky roadside Radar Cameras they have here in Arizona!

TT In The Press

We got some good press during the recent tour of Oregon! Check out this fantastic article from the Klamath Falls paper The Herald And News!

03-12-2009 – Oregon Institute of Technology – Klamath Falls, OR

Wow. A fantastic show and an AMAZING crowd! The audience was hot and I think enjoy the almost hour and twenty minute long set! Here’s what was played…

Yes, you read that right, O.Y.M.A. was played at a college show. I have to add at the request of the Campus Activities Board! Again it was so much fun playing this show, having family and friend sin the crowd along with the great O.I.T. staff and students! I’ll add some pictures when I get back to Burbank, but they outdid themselves on the publicity! Posters, lighted board outside and the coolest was they presented me with a toaster at the end of the show! SO much fun! THANKS O.I.T.!

03-11-09 – Willamette University – Salem, OR

This was a fun show. I was booked to host this show which was a talent show featuring acts made up of W.U. students. The acts were all fantastic, from the band, to the solo singers, to the jugglers, to the guy who walked on a basketball and sag, to the winner: an amazing breakdancing act!

Here’s a list of what I played…

Short but fun! Thanks to the W.E.B. folks for having me out for the show!

The R.A. Song!

Just got back from a great trip to Houston playing for the APCA convention and scored myself some SWEET gigs for next year in the Lone Star State and surrounding areas. I’ll have footage from the convention later this week, but in the meantime, here’s The R.A. Song…
