Murder Ballads house concert at the Baronial Estate! You're warmly invited to come hear the amazing Murder Ballads, fresh off their appearance as Philcon Musical Guest of Honor, at our house in Glenside on Sunday Nov. 22, doors opening at 6:30.

Murder Ballads is the usually-acoustic duo of Catt Kingsgrave and Adam Fromm, two songwriters from Texas and Illinois respectively, who somehow converged in the American Northeast to join forces and influences. Murder Ballads’ sound is an eclectic blend of whatever strikes their fancy: sincere folk originals, bluesified treatments of Anglo-Celtic standards, reimaginings of favorites in whatever genres they have lying around, trips through cockeyed humor, and yes, the occasional actual murder ballad. More information about Murder Ballads can be found on their website: http://murder-ballads.com

Attention Murder Ballads-listening-type people! We've just posted our second exclusive demo mp3 for our Patreon subscribers: a live recording of "Invocation," the song we wrote and performed at Pi-Con last month. If you haven't signed up, you've got a few coins to throw the musicians' way, and you want to get in on the hundredweight of new stuff we've been playing with (whispered secret: we're already talking about our second album, and we're using these demos to get early opinions on what to include), then hie thee over to our Patreon page and get in on the fun. And to those who HAVE signed up, know that our love for you knows no bounds! Thank you all!

"The freedom of individuals verbally to oppose or challenge police action without thereby risking arrest," Justice William J. Brennan Jr. wrote for the majority, "is one of the principal characteristics by which we distinguish a free nation from a police state."

#FuckDaPolice
U.S. courts have made this clear again and again and again.

Yes, that’s right!  The duo who brought you The Ballad of Captain America’s Disapproving Face are playing live in the Boston area this weekend – not once, but TWICE!

Saturday afternoon at 2:pm will find us playing a house concert in Medford – 246 High Street, to be exact, though for space considerations, if you’d like to attend that one, please head over to the FaceBook event and RSVP.  We’d rather not make the Fire Marshals or our event hosts cry with this one if possible.

And on Sunday night, we’ll be doing a half hour set at the Plaza Azteca, beginning at 7:30.  ( http://murder-ballads.com/?event=worcester-ma-open-mic-at-plaza-azteca ) We’ll have T shirts and CDs available for both shows, and we’d honestly love to see some of our online fans in person if any of you can get to either show.

And if you can’t?  Well please consider shilling the shows for the benefit of what friends you might have who COULD get to the shows, but might not otherwise think to go.  We’re a small band, and neither of us is very good at the advertising end of things – we need all the help we can get!

Cheers, and I hope to see some of you this weekend!
Catt Kingsgrave and Adam D Fromm, a.k.a. Murder Ballads, will take to the house concert stage for the first time in longer than we'd care to admit, with folk originals, bluesified Anglo-Celtic traditional fare, left-field covers, and yes, the occasional bona fide murder ballad.

On the outside I'm a noble gas, but when I let down my hair, I'm more like Polonium. (Dancing like an electrocuted jellyfish at minute 1:21.)

Since my social media spamming apparently didn't make it as far as GooPlu, at last it can be told: Murder Ballads has been invited as the Musical Guests of Honor at this year's Philcon, held in Cherry Hill, NJ on November 20-22. Philcon is the oldest SF/F convention in the US, and we are honored beyond words to be invited, not to mention excited to the point of Kermit-flaily-hands-levels of hyper. This is our first GoH in the history of ever, and we hope you all will check out the event and come join us for what we're anticipating will be a weekend of, dare we say, epic proportions. Let the strategy meetings and obsessive rehearsals begin!

Justin and I watch the NTSB air crash investigations on YouTube, so when I heard about the Germanwings crash, I immediately thought that it was intentional - pilot waits for other pilot to go on potty break, locks him out, hits the "down" button, and, well, that's that. There was an Asian flight years ago where the pilot did this. But I'm horrified that I was right.

I would like to get this in, before people start the chatter about how the guy was mentally ill (he was) and that caused the crash... that the stigma about mental illness is why that plane crashed. The stigma is what caused that pilot to hide it from his employers, so that they did not know how he was suffering and struggling. So they did not know that they needed to support him through treatment and hold his place for him so he could stay employed. The stigma and the shame that it causes - and a brutal economic regime that lets people lose everything if they need to take a break from "being productive" - is what stops people for reaching out for the help they need, and acknowledging the limits that they have at least for this moment.

So if my newsfeed starts to be full of commentary that casts mentally ill people as the scary Other, I will have to edit my friends list and you will know why.
