Frank Black - live notes. 2000

The band did some more touring in early 2000, took a break in late March / early April to record Dog In The Sand, then hit the road again. In late June, Frank's wife fell seriously ill so the remainder of the tour was cancelled so he could be with her. Fortunately she was back to health before long. In November, Frank did a handful of solo acoustic gigs in Europe, then returned to play a few shows in California though December, with Dave Phillips accompanying him on lead guitar. At the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles on December 1, Joey Santiago joined Frank for some songs.
