Hey there everyone, I'm here in LA and having a great time. I'm really missing my Rene though, we get to talk on the phone nearly everyday, but the time difference is crazy. Last night I was lucky enough to go to the Hollywood bowl, it was an amazing show with the Rose Hill Drive guys opening with a terrific set, and then the mighty Who delivered a monster of a show. It was great hanging backstage, and meeting some bloggers, I had a great night, and what an amazing venue, I've got some great pictures which I will post when I get home.
I also got to meet loads of great bloggers at the Barnes and Noble gig that Rachel did in LA, its great to meet people that I have spoken to on the blog for the last year, thankyou very much to all those people, it was great to see you.
Sorry to all those that I didn't get to see, and I hope to meet you some other time.
I'm using Andy's computer in the hotel that we are staying, as promised, I'll try and blog as often as possible on this tour, but I haven't got my own computer.
Tomorrow is the first Attic Jam of the tour, at the Hotel Cafe. I'm really looking forward to the show, and hope that I'll get to meet loads more bloggers and fans. I'm opening the show with a few songs, probably Plasticine, You and Misery, it should be good. For all those of you who can't be there, you will be able to watch the show on Intheattic.tv.
Thankyou everyone for all the great shouts here, take care you lot, and as always GMaS.

Hello from Sweden!
Glad you're with the gang out in LA, I hope to catch the next ITA...I can't tell you all how much I've enjoyed them, going back to #1. I just bought your EP and can't wait to get it. hopefully it'll help you buy back your teeth from Pete!

I've often gone back to hear your songs on ITA shows...you've really gotten better and better each performance. If I can make a request, you should bering back "My Pidgeon Friend" - I love that song! Was that your Gibson J200? Sounds fantastic! you should use it more often.

Well, I'm off to cry in a corner. I just saw the tickets for Chicago in December go on sale today. It's my home town (but I am living in Sweden) & I have been longing to see you all there. Just living for it! If you're playing the show, best of luck and please, please try to put it online for me and the other fans.

Mikey,

Glad to hear you arrived safe. I'm in Atlanta so I have to wait until the Who gets down here on the 22nd...are you staying for the whole 2nd leg or just for the LA part?

Looking forward to seeing the show on the internet, brake a leg!

Hi Mikey,
I got the picture of you, me, and Nabonidus, which is the only picture that came out.
I would like to send you a copy, but I need your e-mail address.

You were so cool last night! It was such a great show, I hope I can go to another one!

Mikey,
it was so great to meet up with you again in LA. Your set was fantastic last night, I have a great photo of you mate. Have fun on the rest of the tour. Can't wait to hear your new songs. I'll be putting together some ideas on a CD and sending over to you, would be cool if we could collaborate on a tune via the endless wire.

Take care mate.

It was so great to see you perform last night. What a special show that was.

Thank you for being so sweet.

Aw, last night's show was wonderful, it was so nice to meet you in person finally! And the angst, longing in your voice is making for better performances, hehe. I'm making light of it but it's true. You have an added intensity right now because of it. Plasticine made me tear up a little even though it normally doesn't. Exceptional performance.
I blogged Rene a minute ago, figured she needs all the support she can get right now. I hope she can see you soon.
Send her a present, a "just because"
gift that you fedex or soemthing so that it gets there in the next couple of days. She needs cheering up man! I wish she didn't read this, so that it would be a surprise.
The point is, guys frequently don't think of this stuff. So I'm giving you a kick in the pants. :) Buy her a gift
and fedex to her. She deserves it! And you know that.Plus, Hollywood and LA has some of the best places to shop.
Love you both, which is why I am being so forward :) xoxoLisa

Hey Mikey,

I enjoy watching your performances on ITA? I was wondering if you're working on anything new?

I hope to meet you when you come to Philly on the 25th of November.

Hey Mikey, I'm assuming you may have already seen this on Pete's website, but I thought this was very sweet of him to say and wanted to pass it along to you just in case you didn't see it:
"A special word about Mikey Cuthbert. Last night was the first time I saw him rise completely as a performer to the dignity of his songwriting - he did a really focused and careful set, and worked some real magic."

I'm so crossing my fingers you play at Joe's Pub! I still have never seen you perform live and am really excited to get the chance to do so. I've been hearing glowing reviews about your performance in LA, which of course is just excellent. Good work, sir. :)

Wow, Mikey—sounds like you had an amazing performance at the Attic Jam! Great job! The reviews of you are RAVE!! Your incredible talent is becoming more and more well-known. So glad everyone had a blast and the show was a huge success. Plus, it’s great that you got to meet so many more bloggers!

We really have been enjoying your cd and look forward to your new music. Can’t wait to see you perform again at the Chicago gig.

Have fun and say hi to Rene for us when you talk to her. You guys are a super couple and it’s touching to hear how much you miss each other.

See you soon,
L&R

MIKEY!!
You totally rocked at Hotel/Cafe.
(I should have told you that after the show when I saw you...I was in lala land then, sorry!).
And all of you can be jealous because when all 4 Attic Jammers were on stage (Rach, Mikey, Pete and Si) I said in a rachel-like baby voice: "Love you" and Mikey looked at me and laughed and said the same thing back to me.
Ah, inside attic humor, gotta love it.
Your cd is fantastic Mikey - thank you AGAIN for the lovely gift.
Muah!
We listened to it over and over on the way up to LA, btw!

Hope to see you again sometime Mikey! I have a feeling I will..
Enjoy the rest of your stay here.
Oh and go see the review I posted on Rachel's blog if you haven't already. You will likey, Mikey.
Love,
Psychosuesjoy!!
PS I hope Molly and I didn't scare you. We're not REALLY dating...yet! LOL
PPS Oh and I could see in your eyes that you were missing your Rene.
I could tell...

Hey that's some good advice there Lisa!

Men DO NOT buy us enough "just because gifts!!"
ok well, now that I think of it, neither do I...
as I was saying Lisa, EXCELLENT advice!

Hi, Mikey,

Dave and I really enjoyed spending some time with you after the LA show. I posted one of our pictures of you on my blog. I have a couple more if you want them. We were glad to get to meet you and to know you a little bit better. Hope to see you again in Chicago and in NYC.

Rene - stop reading now - yes, Mikey, it is a good idea to send her something little to say you were thinking about her.

Thanks Suesjoy. :)
Learned when it happened to me. I got this gift in the mail awhile back, recently.wasn't expecting it at all. It was something really cutesy. Not expensive, but it's priceless to me for the thought that went into it. This person knew that I liked cat figurines, etc. Cat things. And it was a pink backpack with cats on it. Really cute. Has the rollers on it for rolling through the airport. I swear, I set the backpack up so I could look at it, and it made me smile whenever I did. A silly little thing that made me really, really happy. :)
So I know from personal experience. :)

Dear Mikey,

My heart goes out to you and Rene. Be patient and strong. But wow, you're doing such great things! By all accounts, your performance this week was nothing short of amazing. I'm SO proud of you, I could burst.

See you in a few weeks in Minneapolis. You are so loved here! Some old faithful fans of ITA here, waiting to welcome you.

Hugs,

Mikey, sitting here listening to Invisble, your EP, fantastic stuff Mikey. I love Misery and Invisible the best- something about having real drums and a bit of keyboard, the production is terrific Mikey, what can we do to get you on B&N web site and on the radio? You should be selling right next to Rachel in my opinion.

Hope you have fun on tour and build your fan base, you deserve success my friend. It's hard to believe it is a week since we walked in to Barnes & Noble to see you. Mark & Jill left a lovely message on our machine before they got on their plane home. It's a shame we can't all live in the same area, we are really very sad tonight.

Mikey:

Allen and I were in the Garage listening to your CD that Allen bought from you outside the Hollywood gig, Hotel Cafe (is it a hotel...no, is it a cafe, no...??? Whatever it really is, it's been a piece of history).

Good stuff, Mikey. Glad to meet you. Hope you remember us too.

Darn, I forgot to autograph something for you...maybe next time...yeah, right.

Peace,
