It's playing shows, it's live: it's like, raw and feels good, and sometimes bad. Sometimes bad-ass. It's loud, it's soft, it's really unreal, bent-time continuum and human-human interaction to the 4th dimension: bands working it out within themselves, work it out into you, then you're giving it back to them and share it with the ones next 2 U, 2. It's finding the hill and rolling down it, like Mike Donovan and band prove it, it's life as life. Dig, Donovan's solo debut album, Wot, is with us in the future calendar month of October. But dates mean nothing when life is life. Our ears and eyes as pallets, Mike Donovan paints our portrait, a love portrait with tentacles of feel. So why not tour before, during and after an album release? It's life, it's Mike Donovan. Wot? Tour is all up in here, watch:
