Hey: If you found this page, good on you. Chances are you’re here because you are going/went to the 2017 Mike Errico Holiday Show and might have some footage of the day/evening to share. Nice work! I had an idea… I’d like to see if we can compile ALL of our footage, and create something cool out of it. So, here’s what to do: – Have fun at the show – Take whatever photos, video, etc. Pre-game. Post-game — you call it. – Take the footage and GO HERE. (It’s a simple Dropbox folder, FYI.) – Upload what you got (I also left a couple gifts for you to take…examples of the kind of thing we can end up with – shh) – Let’s see what happens! CREDIT: You can title the content you upload in the filename so I’ll know who to thank at the end of whatever gets made. You’ll be able to see what happens at #holidayomens Could this go wrong? Everything, potentially, can go wrong. Can it go right? Not to sound like a yogi or anything, but it can’t go right unless it actually GOES. Real talk, people. SO, AGAIN: THAT URL IS HERE. Take shots. Upload. Let’s see what happens! Thanks for playing...
“Minor Fits,” the new album by Mike Errico

“Minor Fits,” the new album by Mike Errico

Long story short: Initially, I had planned on recording a five-song, tight, straightforward EP that I would be proud to give to you. However, as soon as we started recording, I knew something special was going on, and that an EP was not going to cut it. That’s not bragging, it’s just that when you do something long enough, you kinda get a feel for when it’s the real thing, and in this case it was obvious. It also meant that an EP was not going to cut it. So I crashed through the DEAD END sign and kept on driving. I now have a full-length record that is edgy, Americana-leaning, story-based, and deeply connected to all my work that came before it. Minor Fits is being fueled by a Pledge campaign, and I’m asking you to help me see it through to completion. In addition to the finished product, I’m psyched to offer a bunch of things I’ve been itching to give you, including many other studio and live recordings, podcasts, interviews with the people who worked on the record, a quarterly subscription to the all-new and still infamous Tallboy magazine, and more. You’ll be a part of the first-ever non-holiday expansion of the Holiday Omens, which is explained below. And hey, if you don’t see something that you want, just ask me. Let’s make this work. For decades, you have been there for me and I have tried to express my gratitude by making the best possible work I can. I hope you’ll join me now, and continue to play along. So that’s it. Let’s do this. Related show...

Mike Errico: “The People You Never Really Trusted” Live

Holiday Show 2015, Joe’s Pub NYC Mike Errico-Guitar, vocal; Matt Beck- steel; Dave Scalia- Drums; Tomek Miernowski-Bass The People You Never Really Trusted © Mike Errico Sky Blue Coupe De Ville Music, ASCAP Did you know You tell a lot and never show You talk too fast and listen way too slow Did you know Are you mad The shiny things you never had It’s a drug, and it’s easy to go bad bad bad Are you mad And I wonder how you ever got so angry The gratitude you missed with your swinging wild fist You’ll take my time enough to finally blame me For the moment we first kissed and I wound up on your list Of the people you never really trusted Do you care The box you’re in is made of air Nothing real ever really told you life was fair Do you care And I wonder how we ever get so blinded By what we think we need, what it looks like to succeed But do you even want to be reminded That no matter what the speed, you’re not close to breaking free From the people you never really trusted Line ‘em up against the wall And tell everybody else for once and for all you know Your secret’s safe with someone new If only you could hold on to the strength you need To truly close your eyes Good night Good night Do you doubt That you’ve yet to figure out The time we have is running out Do you doubt And I wonder where I’ll be the day you get it...

I’ll make the long, slow crawl up the coattails of the American Royalty.” Two men are walking back from the west side Not talking, of course And their DVRs are programmed For channel 2 at 8 Militants with pipe bombs forming independent states and one says, “I can’t live hand to mouth for the rest of my life And I pray some day I get busted with the president’s wife Who needs the lottery? I’ll be this year’s back door man of the American Royalty” Where they say Tell me what it’s like to be the Sexiest Man Alive You were down by twenty at the half, did you have to reach inside? We the people want to know who you had to sacrifice Was there tension on the set? Tell me What is tension like? Yeah, fuck the lottery I’ll make the long, slow crawl up the coattails of the American Royalty I am walking by the river And all I really want is a decent night of sleep And I’m meeting with demons...

Wander Away [Deluxe Edition] by Mike Errico All In [Deluxe Edition] by Mike Errico Have I been mistaken To believe that you’re even out there to find Haven’t I been patient Have I waited long enough to have seen a sign All I know Is that I am here and all alone And you could be anywhere Are you just a rumor A thought that crossed my mind While thinking up ways to pass the time Are you wishing I’d thought of you much sooner While you force a wounded smile For one more store-bought Valentine High and low I’m searching but I just don’t know And you could be anywhere I’ve been sleeping on my feet I’ve been all the secrets I can keep inside me I don’t know what more I can do If I can’t find you Will you find me Buy it on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/mike-errico/id3567281 or Bandcamp: http://mikeerrico.bandcamp.com/track/you-could-be-anywhere Appears on “Wander Away,” by Mike Errico As seen on MTV’s Teen Mom Episode 3 Finale, and elsewhere.
