It's the Emerald Anniversary --- 20 Years of PCB!

That's 20 fuckin' years of rockin' & rollin'.

To get over crippling stage fright, I started playing 3-4 open mic nights a week in the Spring and Summer of 1999.

It was so bad, if I had a class in college that required participation or, lordy forbid, a speech -- I would just walk out and find another class.

But how can you become a rock star with stage fright?

I still fight through it, though it may be while I'm drinking some unsuspecting audience member's drink and simultaneuously guitar soloing on top of the bar at your local venue.

At one of those early open mic nights, this strange dude comes up to me with his name scrawled on a napkin...

Eric Swan-In (310)837-7084

He offered to play bass in my band. Problem was we didn't have a drummer.

We quickly found one, Jon "Beachfoot" Weil, and a couple months later in November or December of 1999 we played the first show as a band at the Sunday night Kibitz Room in Canter's Deli on Fairfax for their open mic night.

We played like 3 songs. I don't think we had a name yet, nor were we very good.

Since then, Eric Suoninen changed his name to Dutch. And gave me the proper spelling of his last name.

The PCB has played well north of 1500 shows.

Recorded 6 albums.

Travelled from Japan to Netherlands & all through the US.

Beachfoot Weil made the terrible decision to quit playing drums with us and become a noted philosophy professor at Stanford University.

I have met thousands of wonderful friends.

And played with hundreds of band members and musicians as part of what I call the PCB collective.

Come celebrate the PCB 20th anniversary this Saturday at the Cinema Bar.

Fuck it, you know we will be celebrating all year. And really have been for the last 20.

So let's keep the music, good times, band drama, jokes, tears, and party rolling. Whaddaya say?
