News from the musical world of Christine Albert and Chris Gage
April 2014

Hey and howdy, friends and neighbors, salutations from the MoonHouse in beautiful Austin, Texas where winter is over, and the oak trees that hang over our fair city are dropping all their green fuzz and making everyone's eyes water a bit.  The MoonHouse garden is in disrepair, but there's hope.  Plants are waiting to hit the ground later today.  Tomatoes, sweet corn and a variety of hot peppers will be reaching for the sky very soon. 

Ms. Albert is off to GRAMMY meetings in Los Angeles (having stopped in Florida, Washington D.C. and Atlanta along the way), so you're left with Mr. Gage's musings this month.  I'll try to be entertaining.  I have the cats to keep me company while she's gone and at least one gig to play every day.   

Speaking of which...one of the hippest new music venues in Austin has invited me to perform on a weekly basis, and I'm going to go for it.  It's called the Strange Brew Lounge Side on South Manchaca, very close to our studio, and recently won an Austin Chronicle Music Award for Best Live Music Venue.  I'll be performing with a hand picked band of world class musicians every Wednesday from 6 pm to 7:30 pm, and I'm really looking forward to it.  I'm going to try and make every 3rd Wednesday an Albert and Gage show with our band when my partner's in town. 

I'm attaching some random photos from our travels.  Enjoy.  If you're in LA and you see my wife...tell her to come home!

As always, thank you for the support... 
Chris and Christine
