Yours truly will be playing this year’s FLOW art crawl along with my good friend and longtime Lothario Drummer DJ Turtle on the beats. We play Saturday July 29 at about 4PM on the KMOJ Stage on the North High Football Field. And we’ve only got about 10 minutes, so don’t be late!

That’s this Saturday in the great outdoors. If you’ve got some time please come out and show some love. We are going to do one brand new song that you don’t want to miss!

Lothario with Greyduck at Bullwinkles in Mpls

The Band is at long last playing a show. Our friends have asked us to play with them at Bullwinkle’s on the 24th.

That’s a Saturday at Seven Corners. Sounds like a good time to me. If you haven’t seen Greyduck, you really should. For real.

Ill Pirsona and Lothario News

My most excellent band Lothario and I have been working on some things. While we’ve been quiet in the public eye we’ve been making plenty of noise at the practice space and have also been recording our first full length album in a very nice demo theater at Admit One Home Cinema in Edina.

We’ve also been very busy with our families and careers and life in general.

Also, Lothario is lucky enough to be playing Bullwinkle’s Saloon on Saturday, June 24th with our favorite band of all times, Grey Duck. More info on that to follow…

And finally, I have been working off and on on the next Ill Pirsona solo album, Billy Brightside. Look for that in the next year or two. The Lothario album is my priority until it’s finished.

After a (very long) interuption, illpirsona.com is back!

Hello all,
While this site was never offline or unavailable, I was unable to add or change content on it for some time, which is why my last post is dated December of 2013… Long story short, there was some weird issue with the previous host of my domains (www.pirsona.com and www.theillpirsona.com also point to this domain), which they could not or would not resolve for me, and it basically locked me out of most admin features of my domains.
So, with the help of my good friends at WebAura Media I have moved the hosting, am set-up with a much better website, and plan to start posting again soon. I also plan to update the site with a fresher look and (finally) a media player for my songs and videos. Watch for all of that stuff over the winter…
And thanks to all my friends, family, and fans for all their continued love and support over the years. More great new Ill Pirsona music will be coming out in 2015!
