Waffles & Glen’s new band

Two unrelated, but equally good things…

There’s a new waffle place in Eugene.  It’s called Off the Waffle (it’s on Van Buren just south of 7th).  They make Liège style waffles and they are freaking amazing.  I’ve been there twice in the last week.  As of now, they have 3 options: white or whole wheat ($3), and waffle of the week ($5).  This week’s waffle was goat cheese and blueberry, and it’s baked right into the waffle.  Holy Cow!  A+++

They also have coffee from local One Cup, do a barter system (if you have things to trade), and they do catering… they’re open from 8am to midnight every day of the week!!! Their webpage will be here (not active yet): http://www.offthewaffle.com/

There’s a new promo video for Works Progress Administration featuring Glen Phillips (from Toad the Wet Sprocket), Sean & Sara Watkins (from Nickel Creek), and many more…

WPA is:

  • Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket) – vocals, guitar
  • Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek, Fiction Family) – guitar, vocals
  • Luke Bulla (Jerry Douglas Band, Ricky Skaggs) – fiddle, vocals, guitar
  • Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek) – fiddle, vocals
  • Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) – piano, organ
  • Greg Leisz (Joni Mitchell, Wilco, Sheryl Crow, Beck) – pedal steel
  • Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Imposters, Randy Newman) – drums
  • Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello and the Imposters, Cracker) – bass

I’m looking forward to just about any Glen Phillips.  He had two in my top 5 for 2008… anyway, I’m looking forward to a WPA album in 2009.

    This is quite a hot information. I think I’ll share it on Digg.
