Christmas at the Coach House For those familiar with my earliest days on stage, The Coach House is well known as the venue where I got my start. In fact, it was the owner of the Coach House who helped Something Corporate record our early independent release "Ready Break". For the first time since being signed in 2001, I'm going to be returning home to that stage to play an intimate acoustic show. I hope to see you there 12/27. Tickets on sale tomorrow at 10am PST http://bit.ly/2xXwZvw

I'm excited to announce the 8th Annual Dear Jack Foundation Benefit will take place in Denver Colorado at the Ogden Theatre. This year's show will be packed with music and moving stories about the adolescent and young adult cancer patients and survivors we work with day in and day out at Dear Jack. The music program will include the final performance of the Zombies in America Tour and a cast of special guest performers making appearances throughout the night. My dear friend and incomparable talent, Allen Stone, will be joining us for an acoustic set. Legendary SoCo and Jack's Mannequin guitarist Bobby "raw" Anderson AKA bob oxblood will be performing a set of new music as well as joining the Wilderness onstage to supply some extra firepower. Bandmate and collaborator Zac Clark will also be performing a set of songs from his upcoming solo record, which is unreal. If that weren't enough we have Something Corporate drummer Brian Ireland set take over drumming duties for a few tunes. Please join us for what is bound to be a memorable and beautiful evening in honor of the Dear Jack mission to make life easier for those facing adolescent and young adult cancer. Pre-sale starts tomorrow at 10am MDT, get your tickets then: http://dearjack.shofetti.com General on sale starts Friday at 10am MDT.

The latest addition to the lyric series is finally here. The 11x17 print is designed by one of our favorite artist's, Matt Allen, and includes lyrics from the Zombies on Broadway song "Dead Man's Dollar.” We loved the poster art so much we decided to make it a tee shirt as well - https://shop.andrewmcmahon.com/

Several weeks ago I got a call from my wife informing me about an upcoming solar eclipse. It would be the first time since 1918 that such an event had taken place across the U.S. and she wanted to experience it with my daughter and I. I obliged, but my curiosity was piqued. In our relationship I’ve always been the champion of inconvenient travel plans and the news of oversold hotels and apocalyptic traffic jams seemed a stretch, even for me. Still, she leaned into the planning and it became a mission for our family to find ourselves in the path of totality. It wasn’t until I returned home last week, scattershot and depleted from a string of fly dates, that it occurred to me our travels would include today, the anniversary of one of the strangest moments in my life. A day, when through a feat of scientific muscle, I was transfused with my sister’s bone marrow. It was on this day twelve years ago that I was 115 pounds, bald as the day I was born and ready to be born again. I was a patient then and now they call me a survivor. Admittedly, this anniversary and the days surrounding it have been fraught with angst and long walks through metaphorical mine fields. From year to year I’ve found myself boarded up emotionally, sweating out benders in rented rooms and never being the wiser that the landmark was looming until it was far too late. Cancer and it’s aftermath has lead my wife and I through so many false starts. You think it’s over and then it’s back in it’s myriad ghost forms, challenging you to stand up to it again and again. You feel shame and anger, forgiveness and grace so many times you wonder if it’s the disease or just your human failings. Most likely it is both, but It’s hard to unwind the two and I’m not sure I ever will. What I do know is that this year feels different. Standing in a field with a group of strangers and the two people who know me best, watching the light change as the earth, sun and moon rotated briefly into perfect alignment, I found myself weeping with gratitude for the gift of my rebirth. Instead of running from myself I was slow dancing with my tribe beneath the most unusual sky. It is for the caretakers who standby ready to move mountains that I dedicate this birthday. It is for the feeling of powerlessness that persists when the one you love most is so full of sickness that all you can do is hope and wait. It is for the aftermath that no one prepares you for and the beauty that comes from rebuilding your life around the shadow of a sickness retreating. It is for my wife who artfully navigated me into the path of an eclipse on a week when I am so regularly in the path of a steamroller. It is for the fact that so few of us do this alone, yet those who shoulder the burden are so rarely acknowledged for their contribution. If there is any gift I could receive on this most bizarre of birthdays, it would be for those of you who know a patient or a survivor to reach out to their spouses, partners, parents, families, friends and advocates and let them know how much you appreciate their sacrifice. Now that would be a birthday present.
