Since Stefanko is currently living in Tokyo, he toured North America by himself hitting up New York City (where he onced lived and played with a ton of artists including Gogol Bordello), Mexico City and Seattle completing his triangle shaped trip. At each stop he played with local musicians. Seattle's accompanying band included Olie Eshleman (guitar), Cerebral Cortez (drums) and Jerry Neufeld-Kaiser of Orkestar Zirkonium (tuba). They brought the house down!
DJ Dearborn and I did a live broadcast of the Josephine show on Hollow Earth Radio. Between sets I got a chance to interview Jason Webley, Stefanko and I spoke briefly with Josephine booker Malaki Stahl about the thriving DIY scene in Seattle and you can hear part of that interview on DJ Dearborn's Myspace page.
*In the meantime you can hear snippets of the interview with Malaki and watch some of the Dolomites concert footage on DJ Dearborn's Myspace profile.
