Live in Budapest December 8, 2019

https://www.facebook.com/events/734505327045220/ Antic Clay (Michael Bradley solo) dives back into wonderful Budapest in a solo show featuring songs from 2020’s forthcoming “Broom of Fire” as well as selections from “Hilarious Death Blues” and covers and who-knows general revelry.

Theater in a Crowded Fire – Another Demo

As I build toward recording Broom of Fire in Los Angeles (New target date: 2nd week of November), I am recording acoustic video/audio to share with the production team out there, and give them a chance to become familiar with each song. So here’s another one. Best sound with headphones on.  

2018 Oakhurst Porchfest

Hello – I’m happy to be playing my 3rd Porchfest in a row this coming Saturday, October 13th. It’s always interesting to play my original songs to an array of strolling families with their carousing children running through the yards. Naturally I feel compelled to play more uplifting material in such an environment. Each year …

Merry Goats in Prague

Thank you for a very nice set at a very local bistro in Prague – everyone was so gracious and appreciative. Only a few spoke English – and so once again music is the universal means of communication. I will return!

Singing Bowie

On Monday night I participated for the first time with this group that performs tribute nights regularly. This one was for Bowie’s birthday, as well as Elvis Presley’s.

Antic Clay Live in Budapest, December 8 2017

“A legkisebb kavics is hosszú éles ceruzavonást rajzol a homokba és az emberek meg a lovuk messze eléjük nyúló fekete árnya akárha az éjszaka emléke amit maguk mögött hagytak mely csápjaival utánuk nyúl és az újra rájuk váró sötétséghez köti őket. Fejüket lehorgasztva lovagoltak arctalan a szemükbe húzott kalap alatt mint egy álmában menetelő hadsereg.” …
