Live Road Dog Reading & Music in Portland

On March 7, 2017 at 7:00 pm I’m reading from Road Dog (and signing books) at O’Connor’s (7850 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland, 97219) in Portland, Oregon.

And there will be two real live musicians backing me up. Don Campbell and Whit Draper from the Sportin Lifer’s will be on bass and guitar respectively and playing a long as I read! This oughta be fun.

There is a no-host bar but I am springing for some appetizers.

So come on out and listen as I regale you with stories of glory, tales of woe, and bald-face lies when Moses and I were on the road.

Print too small on the poster? Here’s a .pdf you can look at.

January Fundraising Effort for a film on Ford Madox Ford


Hey Everybody,
Please join me in supporting a January fundraising effort for the newly finished feature documentary It Was the Nightingale, by Paul Lewis and Subterracon films. I was the sound designer and I think it’s a terrific film. Now we need to get it out to film festivals world-wide and this will take resources for application fees, marketing materials, travel, etc.

Giving starts with as little as $25! Tax-deductible giving is also available. All the details can be found at the website: www.subterracon.com

This is a very worthwhile film especially if you know nothing about Ford Madox Ford. He wrote many amazing books and so many authors owe him a great debt. He was well known in Paris in the 1920’s. His is truly an extraordinary story.

Please help us out if you can and share this message far and wide.

Thanks I really appreciate your time reading this.

Twas The Night Before, The Night Before Christmas

Seventeen years ago tonight I was sitting in the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel nursing a bourbon or three. Since you asked I’ll tell you.

Shit, is that Lou Reed? I think to myself.

He steps out of the elevator with a blonde woman who’s fighting her Social Security years by sporting one of the shortest dresses I’ve ever seen. The hair color is obviously not natural but those legs are impressive. Think Tina Turner. Her coat is some kind of animal, cut above the waist allowing plenty of space for everyone to take in her legs.

Lou is sporting jet black heavily dyed hair, round dark glasses at night, and he’s wearing a floor length black fur coat. I’m not sure what kind of an animal it was but it certainly looks better than Lou’s hair.

Then there are the old people. You hardly notice them dressed conservatively in overcoats for protection from the elements. They’re easily in their late 80’s.

They come off the elevator together and that’s when Lou makes a beeline for the piano. The regular piano player is on break talking to friends and looking very dapper in his Men’s Wearhouse tuxedo. As dapper as one can look with a receding hairline and a potbelly. Continue reading “Twas The Night Before, The Night Before Christmas”

Pre-Order Road Dog

Road Dog is a wonderfully entertaining look at a life well lived along the road–make that many, many roads–less travelled.  Kelley’s writing is funny, incisive, and wryly observant as he recounts experiences both mundane and bizarre accumulated through his years of driving back and forth across this wildly diverse, crazy ass country of ours.  Infectiously page-turning.  I loved it.” – William Bitner, author, Worlds Beyond, She Saw Dinosaurs

“When Moses and I hit the road, it was scary, demanding and a shit ton of fun. Fierce storms, terrifying fog, icy roads, uncontrollable laughter, and oftentimes far too much alcohol. Without that big old dog I’m not sure how I would’ve survived.” – Kelley Baker

With no distributor interested in his independent films, Kelley Baker, the Angry Filmmaker, ripped a page out of the punk rock handbook and went looking for his audience in a used minivan with his faithful 120 pound Chocolate Lab, Moses. Every fall and spring they traveled the country showing his films at art house theaters, film festivals, colleges, and biker bars. Continue reading “Road Dog”
