Forgot to mention, these were silkscreened by the talented Petra Glynt a few moons ago.

Might switch to just selling pickles and hot sauce on tour instead.
I’ll personalize these shirts and tapes in some way if you want them. The shirts are ladies small, the tapes are unisex. $10 Canadian dollars for the shirts, $5 for the cassettes.
I still can’t think of a good album title.

This album is taking too long. I am booking some shows overseas for December, get in touch if you want me to play, I’ll be playing some new stuff solo.
In the meantime, I am going through some things, trying to finish a film I started 10 years ago and will be posting photos and songs from compilations.
Write me anytime: firstname.lastname@example.org. Love, Liz.

This record is taking a while! It will be worth it, I promise.
In the meantime, I’ll be playing mostly solo on May 7 at Casa Del Popolo for the third edition of Club Les Femmes S’en Melent! With some special guests I hope.
Also planning on other shows here and there so stay tuned!

I always mean to write more, this summer was unexpectedly busy. I played in Chicago in May, Jersey City at WfMU (video to come soon!) in July and the full band will be playing on August 27th at our sometimes rehearsal space at Ratio with Loom and Laughing Eye Weeping Eye.
I have been studying the oud and preparing all the songs I want to record for another album, this time it will not include me singing at all, I have been asking different male musicians instead. Its not really a statement about me but maybe a statement about music and my relationship to it. There are times I totally forget about my gender and I do think of myself as a composer, no question. Somewhere in between those two areas is the next album.

Totally forgot to write about the last show we had in Chicago with some old and new friends! On May 16 I played with Coins and Bilín Wake + Drekka at the Hideout in Chicago. Much fun.
On July 25, I will be playing in NJ at Monty Hall with my friend Joe Merolla on cello, opening for Big Blood. Big Blood is one of my favourite bands ever and I am super excited this is happening.
Finally, it looks like we will have one more show in Toronto this year, details to come.
Still working on new songs for the “man” album.
