2012 continues to be the year of fruitful musical endeavors. The Ascension to the Sun collective (featuring members of This Ascension, Trance to the Sun, and yours truly) is busily preparing for late May shows, Cure Tribute theXplodingboys has added a fundraiser for our good friend DJ Wednesday in early June, and many of the dates of the Soriah tour have been scheduled (in mid-August, instead of September as originally envisioned), and include stops in California and Arizona.
Here is an updated list of my past and future dates so far for the year. Two more shows added in June!
