We're driving to Syracuse, by way of Worcester. Autumn is blazing in New England, all ham and butternut squash soup and woodsmoke. Red Sox fans are again hopeful yet unwilling to engage in positive speculation. Right now, I'm in the passenger seat, tapping on the broken and slightly hazardous screen of my smartphone (oxymoron alert) to tell you three things. 1) download this live recording of The Barn Birds from our performance on WFMT in Chicago last month. http://jonathanbyrd.bandcamp.com/album/live-on-wfmts-folkstage

2) tune in to WCUW in Worcester MA at 10:30am today to hear us chat with Troy Tyree.

3) come to a show and bring 80 of your closest friends:
