Ole! I’m soon headed back to Spain to do nine solo acoustic concerts. After that, I’ll meet up with Mike Therieau, John Kent and Xan McCurdy in León, Spain to perform as The Loved Ones at Purple Weekend Fest!
Before all this, the Bart Davenport Band will perform in LA at 1300 in Echo Park with TV Mike, L.A. Takedown and Dick Pics. Busy, busy, busy…
Wow. I’ve been around so long that my music is being “reissued”. Two classic BD tunes, ‘The Saviors’, b/w ‘Beg Steal Borrow’ are now on a beautiful, new 7inch 45 rpm single. Lovingly put together by You Are The Cosmos, it features photography from the same period by the mega-talented Terri Loewenthal. For US customers, the best way to purchase is from good ol’ GET HIP RECORDS (full circle, the first record I ever made was on Get Hip)! People in the rest of the world can and should buy it HERE on the YATC site.
I’m pleased as punch to announce two solo shows, supporting Echo & The Bunnymen!
July 30 – The Observatory – Santa Ana, CA
August 01 – Orpheum Theatre – Los Angeles, CA

Hola! The BD Band tour of Spain was a bonafide success. A big thanks to C4 Management, Lovemonk Records, A Reixa, and La Castanya! Highlights include stellar shows in Madrid, Pamplona and Santiago de Compostela, plus a sweet television appearance for Radio Tres TV. To view that performance, clickhere.
Magically, at the end of the tour we got to meet legendary Aztec Camera frontman, Roddy Frame. We’d been covering his hit, ‘Oblivious’ in our concerts every night, as an encore. To our surprise, the man himself was doing a solo show in Madrid on our last night in town and we got to meet him.
Next up, we play Harvard & Stone in Los Angeles, sharing a bill with our handsome pals Luke Sweeney and Miller Carr. There will be a west coast tour in July with Extra Classic, so stay tunes for those dates!

A video for DUST IN THE CIRCUITS is out now! Directed by CASSANDRA LEE HAMILTON and starring the delightful NEDELLE TORRISI, the video muses on modern love in the hills of Los Angeles.
