Oklahoma City, Durango, Vegas, and America’s Finest Beer Festival and COMIC CON!!!

So we’re on the last half of the tour, and there’s only 5 shows left. Tonight’s show in Oklahoma City is going to be a winner (Follow that link for tickets). Playing with Shane Henry and Maggie McClure who I had the pleasure of meeting in the green room at an event in LA. They are both wicked talented, and will definitely turn heads. I’m playing at a spot known as the Blue Door, which is the Singer-Songwriter place to be in OKC. (Kinda like Hotel Cafe to LA Songwriters.)

Then, it’s a 12 hour/all-night drive to Durango, Colorado for a show with a few of the members of the Durango Songwriter community. I’ll be playing at a spot called the Derailed Saloon which is a GREAT venue. The booker at the venue said he loved my voice, and booked me even though I’d never played there before, and I’ve never even been to Colorado. I’m hoping for a good turn out and some beautiful scenery.

Las Vegas is the next stop, and the time keeps changing for the show. I’ll be playing a free show at 7:40 at the MANDALAY BAY House of Blues. (Don’t go to the other one… cause I won’t be there…) Michael Soli puts on these shows called “the Acoustic Strip”, and he’s been a good friend over the years. He’s the one who helped me “open” for Joss Stone, and I’m excited to see him again. My good buddy Don Chareunsy will also be there, and I miss that big gay guy. 😀 He used to work for the Union Tribune, and was a huge help with getting me on the front of the Night and Day section back in 2008.

Then it’s a 5 hour drive back to San Diego for America’s Finest Beer Festival and Big Mike Vs. the Con. I’ll be playing with Kory and Chris at the AFBF, and look forward to meeting some new friends who skip work for the 4:00 show. 😀

Mark Christopher Lawrence (Big Mike on NBC’s Chuck) takes on ComicCon, with fellow comics Vicki Barbolak, Lester Barrie, Jimmy Burns, Chris Clobber, Scott Krinsky and Scott Wood. I’ve met many of these comics, and I guarantee it’ll be a fun time. I’m opening the show with a few tunes, and I’m excited to be a part of it. Mark has been instrumental to my “positive” attitude in Los Angeles. Who would have thought I’d be sharing the stage with 2 peeps from CHUCK??? 😀

I hope you are doing well, and I hope you can make it out to one of the shows. Follow the links for tickets!

Much Love,

About Josh Damigo

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his homemade EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident, Damigo retreated inward, and he ended up writing what would ultimately become his breakout debut, Raw. The album was true to its name and people noticed - Josh picked up two San Diego Music Awards for “Best Acoustic” and “Best Local Recording,” opened for the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, Eric Hutchinson, and Matt Nathanson, and had enough money and momentum to tour the country a few times over. A few years after Raw, there was his third release, Hope. Whereas Raw was a mostly acoustic, vulnerable affair, Hope was a celebration. Pleading and poignant, heartfelt and heavy hearted, it segued effortlessly from orchestral to alt-country, eventually landing him in the top 25 on the country charts. One of the hardest working indie singer/songwriters in Southern California, Damigo spent much of year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his latest album, "Just Give Me a Call", available now, on Randm Records. From the up-tempo single, “Just Give Me a Call”, to the simple sincerity of the ballad “Tennessee”, Josh’s songwriting skills are clear, his voice rings true and his goals remain the same as when he started - to keep making the best music he can, and to share it with all.
