Child Ballads

"Child Ballad w/ Tiger Saw, The Wailing Wall and Emilyn Brodsky (EARLY SHOW) We ( Stewart S. Lupton and a Couple of Pirates) are boarding the ship , the lip, the the cape of the stage around 9, maybe 9:30, pirate time. Take the N & the ARRGHH. This show is dedicated to the BALLAD'S new god daughter, one beautiful BEATRICE BLUE COE MULLIN. May she grow up to be a cowboy, lawyer, or some other form of outlaw. Haven't played in N.Y.C. in some time. Been spending most of time assembling the final galleys of 1st poetry book, illustrated by Dame Darcy of Meat Cake ( Fantagraphics) and Gasoline (Merrill) fame, Jamie Hince from the Kills, and Jennifer "J.J."Herrema of Royal Trux, RTX, among others, not the least of whom is BEATRICE'S FATHER, best of brothers blood , KEVIN Regan MULLIN, American Artist / Actor and Professional Best Friend. If you haven't heard of him yet, you will, mark my scars. In the mean times, The Ballads have grown in scope, wrotE some new songs , stole even more. Come with cheap wine for yr playtime, hickeys and scurvy, and tread the boards lightly, and make out to sea shanties penned for a one year old.. see you @ the naughty nautical nite.... keep a weather eye on the horizon." [The Childballads]

That's how The Childballads described Saturday night (4/25)'s show at Public Assembly in Brooklyn. It was an early show. They were the headliners and went on around 9:40, and were finished about 45 minutes later which was when the laser lights came on for the dance party happening right afterwards. Besides breaking the smoking-indoors law, no crazy behavior by Stewart to report. More pictures below...
