Welcome to December, everyone! December is a month historically filled with lots of Christmas gigs, which makes up for the total lack of work in January. This year is no different, so if you happen to be in town (or able to watch online) then I'd love to have you in the audience for the following shows...
FIRST THE DUNGEONS & DRAGONS STUFF:
Dungeon Drunks switched podcast hosts! We moved from Talkshoe not just
because of the issues they were having (I still can't upload the most
recent episode!) but our new host has better features, offers us larger
audio files so we can have better quality episodes, and is an easier and
smoother delivery platform.
So welcome us to Podbean! http://dungeondrunks.podbean.com/
If you subscribe to us on iTunes you should still get everything the same. Your current subscription will still work. If you get us though another RSS feed you might need to update it. If you have episode 94 then you know you're good. Otherwise just use that Podbean link for all the episodes, an easy to subscribe to RSS feed, and if you use the Podbean app you can find us there as well!
December 7th is the final episode of this season of Destiny & Doom! It's been an absolute pleasure to run a D&D game for Jack, Mica, Criken, and Dante. They've created some memorable characters, we've had tons of fun in crazy situations, and whatever happens next week I'm sure the game will be a blast. So join us Thursday December 7th at 3pm Pacific on the official Wizards of the Coast Twitch channel: twitch.tv/dnd ! Come cheer on Solaris, Freyja, Vance, and Ponyboy in the final confrontation with evil...all while protecting 2 bunnies with unicorn horns.
There's only one day left of One Grung Above as well, but this will be a special double episode day! Wednesday December 20th from 12-4pm Pacific watch me play as b'Ang'R'ang desperately trying to keep 2 grung, a tortle, and an albino dwarf safe and alive as we venture through the dangerous jungles of Chult. As always I'll be playing with Satine Phoenix, Ruty Rutenberg and Cig Neutron in a game DMed by Wizards D&D Product Manager, Adventurers League Guru and architect of the Dungeon Masters Guild Chris Lindsay. This is also on the official Wizards D&D Twitch channel, so lots happening at twitch.tv/dnd!
NOW THE OBOE GIGS:
Maybe you live near Seattle, or are coming to visit for the holidays. Perhaps you in town for the Child's Play Charity Dinner. Whatever the reason if you are in this area and would like to see a Christmas concert and hear me play oboe and English horn I've plenty of performances coming up for a few different shows!
This weekend, December 2nd & 3rd, the Federal Way Symphony is doing our Holiday Concert! This is Christmas light...along with a few Christmas tunes we're also playing a Mozart Piano Concerto and a medley of music from Harry Potter.
Next week, December 8th, 9th and 10th, the Lake Washington Symphony Orchestra is doing our Christmas Pops concert. This is Christmas heavy...we partner with the Westminster Chapel Choir and put on quite the Christmas spectacular. So if you're feeling extra holiday happy this is for you.
Finally I'll be performing the Nutcracker with the Tacoma City Ballet! There's 2 weeks of shows between December 15th and 23rd, and this is a full scale production in a brand new intimate venue. I'm excited to get to enjoy playing all the juicy English horn bits in this winter classic!
So that's my life for the next month. It's busy, but will hopefully bring people some joy and smiles all while paying my bills. Because that's what makes performing so enjoyable...making people happy.
