Phil’s Record-Shattering Grand Victory Tour of the Pacific Northwest!


Heads up, Washington and Oregon! I’m gonna be all up in your business soon. I’d love to see you at any or all of these events. If you’re not planning to be in the Northwest during the tour dates, I’d love to see anyone you know; by all means send ‘em a link to this website or mail ‘em a handwritten copy of this info or whatever you think is best.

The tour:

Friday Oct 14 and Sat Oct 15: FAR-West conference, Bellevue, WA

I’ll be hosting a stellar folk concert each night; these concerts are open to the public and you’ll see some great acts.

Click here to see the lineups; these are people I admire greatly and I’m lucky to hosting the shows.

(To be clear, I’m not performing, just MC-ing, in the pre-hip-hop sense of the word.)

Don’t know the ticket price; I assume they’ll be available at the door. They’re usually very reasonable for three hours of music.

This is at the Hyatt Regency Hotel; click the “Conference 2016” link on the page mentioned above for all the details.

Wednesday Oct 19: House concert in Seattle.

House concerts are my favorite way to perform!

This is all me, all night.
7 pm at Two Pools House Concerts in the Meadowbrook neighborhood of NE Seattle.
Admission to these things is usually by donation.

Thursday Oct 20: In concert with the superb Chico Schwall in Eugene, Oregon



Chico and I will appear side by side at Sam Bond’s Garage, 407 Blair Blvd, Eugene 97402.
We’ll start at 8:30 or 9. Probably $5.
I’ve never been to Sam Bond’s but it looks like one of Eugene’s coolest music venues, with lots of food and a full bar.


Friday Oct 21: Artichoke Music in Portland, Oregon




I’ve wanted to play here for years! I’m one of 4 performers doing 30 minutes each.
The show is 7:30-10pm. 5 bucks.
3130 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland  97214.
This is a great, intimate venue that serves beer, wine, coffee, tea, light snacks and great music.
