January 11th I'll be doing a solo dolo set with my homies False Accusations who will be on tour and playing in PGH at the Mr. Roboto Project. They rip. Come through and check them out. I'll be workshopping a bunch of new material as well. Be there or be square.

In addition Greywalker has a couple shows coming up and me being me, I filmed a video about it. Check out this REALLY FUCKING COOL stuff we got going on.

For anyone unable to watch the video above Greywalker has 2 shows coming up. JAN 26th we are doing a LIVE MUSIC VIDEO SHOOT & headlining gig at The Smiling Moose. FEB 25th we are playing with Darkest Hour at Cattivo. We are selling tickets to the FEB 25th Cattivo show on our website here and every ticket sold comes with a FREE GUEST LIST SPOT to the JAN 26th show at The Smiling Moose. BOGO RIFFS! 

Expect a lot of new music this year from both Sikes and Greywalker. We have spent a lot of time within both projects working on new material behind the scenes and it's almost ready to be shared with the world. Almost. ;-)

For now though just come out to these shows and keep supporting DIY art or whatever. Word up!

We'll be returning to Bobby's Place with MANOKIN from Meadville w/ Erie's OBELUS & SACRED DECAY! Come bang your head outdoors and crack open a cold one with the homies.

Also, if you can't make it out to Erie (or Metal just isn't your "thing") you should strongly consider checking out the LAWN CARE ALBUM RELEASE PARTY. I was scheduled to host/emcee this event but am no longer able to because of the Greywalker gig. This is a bummer but the show is still going to be amazing. Lots of crazy talented friends on the lineup. Please check it out if you can!!!


Plenty of events already lined up for the rest of the year. MORE TBA!
