So much cool stuff happening this month! First off, Maximum Effort is Scheduled to release a 10- year-anniversary-Gatefold-7"-Double EP on July 6th @ the Sinkhole! Ten songs for ten years.
Secondly, we will be touring with our STL buds, Shitstorm, in support of the new release. Midwest, here we come!

Also, this month, I will be continuing to provide musical accompaniment to an insanely awe-inspiring aerialist named Laura Lippert. If you have not seen her perform, you have not lived life yet. Come down to the City Museum, join us in the circus ring, and have your mind blown! These are also the perfect shows to bring your whole family too, as you've probably neglected contact with them, and need an excuse to reconnect.

Keep Your eyes peeled for Al Scorch shows too, I'll be posting them soon.


I have a jammed packed April full of exciting shows and shenanigans. I'm happy to be on the road again with the wonderful Al Scorch & friends! We are gonna be hitting a few towns in the upper Midwest including Ashland, WI and Duluth, MN. I'm looking forward to playing with these fine musicians. This tour is going to be a blast!

The bulk of my performances in April is an exciting new set of shows for me. I went and joined the circus. I will be playing guitar music with the wonderful and fantastical Laura Lippert, who is a trained and tenured aerialist and circus performer, the likes of which you've never seen. Please come on down to see one or more of the multiple performances that we have this month.

Also, on April 13th, Maximum Effort has the honor and pleasure to play record store day @ The Record Space in St. Louis. Our friend Don, the owner of the shop, is an amazing curator of all things cool, and we are happy to take part in record festivities with him, his shop, and all the other bands that are ready to rock!

Hope to see ya there,
