Latest live videos: "The Baby & the Bathwater" - "Beat It" (Michael Jackson cover)

Here are two more clips from a wonderful house show at The Question Mark, in Oakland, on July 22nd. I played solo; most of the setlist were songs I rarely play - and two debuts. The Baby & the Bathwater (August 2012) is an EP available to subscribers only. This is the first time I ever performed the cover of "Beat It," the Michael Jackson hit from 1983.  Thanks to Helen Lee for filming.
