Enso Show + TAPES!

For those of you who've been wanting to get your hands on a physical copy of Spirit of '98, this might be a good time to start dusting off your old tape deck. I plan on spending the next week carefully assembling a limited-edition cassette version of the album. Side A will feature Spirit of '98 in its entirety, while Side B will offer 30 minutes of music dubbed straight from actual mixtapes I either made or received in 1998. It's like stepping into a time machine, friends. Buckle up.

Your first chance to nab this lil' piece of history will be Saturday Nov. 5 at Enso Winery. From 7-9pm we'll be passing the wine and charging through an unplugged set of acoustic jams. Joining us on the bill will be the awesomely talented Dasha and the Bear, and possibly other surprise guests. Hope to see you there! Can't make the show but want a tape? Shoot me an email at

Dan Lurie + Dasha and the Bear

Saturday Nov. 5 from 7-9pm
Enso Winery (1416 SE Stark Street, Portland)
w/ Spirit of '98 cassettes on hand!

Acoustic Athens session

Well, the tour was AMAZING. Great shows, great friends, met some new pals, had plenty of good times. We'll have a full recap soon, but first I wanted to share this video the fine folks at The Post (Ohio University's student newspaper) put together for us. I used to take photos for this paper back in the day. They moved to a new building, but not much else has changed. It was fun hanging out with the next wave of budding journalists, and awesome to get such a warm welcome back to Athens.

Enjoy! We've got more videos and photos from the road coming your way shortly...
