sooo... i'm super lazy, but i just wanted to share my excitement in the fact that I'm going to open for Ryan Cabrera in Milwaukee!!! here is the newsletter i realeased:

Hey all-

So here is the deal, I have been offered the chance to open for Atlantic Records recording artist, Ryan Cabrera. Ryan is a major up-and-coming artist with success on both radio and MTV. Needless to say, this is a big opportunity for me.

Here is the catch... to play, I need to sell 20 tickets ($20/each). This requires the help of all those who have supported me. If you are in the Milwaukee, WI area or just want to drop me a few bucks, that would be amazing. Here is the show information:

Main Act: Ryan Cabrera
Opener(s): Matt Minchew (hopefully!)
When: Tues., Feb. 15, 2005 - 6 pm
Where: The Rave/Eagles Club; Milwaukee, WI
Cost: $20 per ticket

If you think you wanna go to this show or just wanna help an aspiring musician out, please don't hesitate to e-mail me at Mathiason1@hotmail.com.
Thanks for your time and support. Without you, I wouldn't be busting my hump to make a dream come true. I owe it all to you. Best wishes!

**This song written for the Anti-Sessions Vol. 5 show - August 25, 2004 - The Wormhole - West Palm Beach, FL - 9 pm**

D.C. IS BURNING TONIGHT
Matt Minchew
www.mattminchew.com


Dear Daddy, why has mommy
been crying since she got that call?
Six a.m. - her eyes the starkest red.
She’s shaking, knowing we’ve been lead
To believe everything’s alright
In hopes that we may sleep at night
Where’s Johnny? Far away - I hope he’s
Still fighting despite this reckless joke

D.C. is burning tonight
Mother Morality cries,
"Someone please hide the children’s eyes"
The district takes to the streets
The world falls at our feet
Is this what our forefather’s dreamed?
Tonight D.C. is burning bright.
