This is Jamie. He’s our new guitarist.
Jamie Yanda is a killer musician who heads up the primarily Milwaukee-based band Temple. He’s really stepping out of his comfort zone, both stylistically and creatively. It’s been a pleasure working to integrate Jamie into Pushmi-Pullyu, and even though we’re in the early stages of practice, things are looking better second-by-second.
We have two shows currently confirmed for Milwaukee, and we’re all excited to debut a bunch of new songs. You can see us here:
Shows in Madison are in the works, too, so stay tuned!
As some of you know, my house was struck by lightning a few weeks back. Because of this, I have no choice but to go without a computer of my own for a while. my old one – which happened to be the one I used to do all of my work – was completely fried. Luckily, everything was backed up on an external that survived the strike.
So now I’m stuck scrambling to get everything done on time. It kills me not having a dedicated machine of my own, but for now, I’m making do. Luckily, I now live with Corey, my long-time partner in crime. Check out some of his music here and here. Corey and I are hard at work settling into our new house and getting the live Pushmi-Pullyu show in shape. Our first sets back will likely be a bit on the short side, but there is still plenty we can do.
Hopefully, we’ll have a nice solid show for you guys very soon. In fact, our first show back after over a year of inactivity in Madison is in three days! Come check us out in Jamie Yanda’s basement in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Friday, August 20th. Information on that show can be found here. The show is all ages.
Nine days after that – Sunday, August 29th – you can catch us at the Frequency here in wonderful Madison, Wisconsin. While you’re there, you can play some bingo in between sets. You can find information on that show here. The Frequency is a 21+ venue.
Both shows are FREE!

P.S. We might be booking shows IN OUR LIVING ROOM this year. Stay tuned for more on that.
