i'm singing now so shut up: news

last chance - July 29, 2010

Hey there!  Well, school starts in less than a month, so these upcoming August shows will be your LAST CHANCE to catch a live Mo show until 2011.  Yep, that's right, this is it - it's now or never.  As such, I have one each of the different show flavors; one bar show and one listening show.  Wednesday, August 4th I'll be at the Judge's Bench Pub from 9 PM till 12:30, and then Sunday, August 29th (note the new date!) I'll be at the New Deal Cafe from 5 to 8 PM.  Can't wait!

Just added some final Summer dates! - June 17, 2010

In case you hadn't heard, I'm going back to school in the Fall to start a pre-veterinary program so I can become a veterinarian and continue my career of taking care of all of those furries!  So I've made sure to squeeze in a couple of extra shows at the end of the Summer, because once school starts, they'll be few and far between.  Look for bar gigs at the Judge's Bench and special sit-down, listening shows at the New Deal Cafe.  More info on the calendar page

Summer Judge's Bench Show! - June 3, 2010

TONIGHT - 9 PM till Midnite-ish, I'll be live at the Judge's Bench Pub in Ellicott City.  Great micro-brew selection, friendly staff and a wonderful neighborhood pub vibe.  Details on the calendar page.  See you there!

Run for the Fuzzies! - May 12, 2010

Yep, I have finally found a way to unite my favorite workout pastime to my love for them little furballs:

I have signed up to run the Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary 5K Run For The Animals coming up on May 23rd, a week from Sunday.  I have a pretty modest fundraising goal - just $300 - but I need your help to get there! 

Follow this link to my donation webpage
(or cut and paste the website below into your browser) to make a secure online donation.  It only takes a few seconds, and even the smallest donation will be much appreciated!

For posterity, here is a link to the Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary website, and here's a link to the PSAC 5K Run info.

Thanks in advance for your donation and support!  :-)

summer shows - May 5, 2010

Check out the calendar page for gigs coming up next month at my favorite clubs - The Judge's Bench in Ellicott City and The New Deal Cafe in Greenbelt - on June 3rd and 20th respectively.  Both are No Cover, Smoke Free gigs.  Hope to see you there!

THANK YOU! - April 5, 2010

THANK YOU to everyone who came out to make the CD Release Party such a great success!  Despite the fact that my voice tried to leave the party early, your support kept me going long past the point of reason, never mind good sense.  BUT, we made it!  :-)  And the recovery has already commenced - I'll be back in full force come June, I promise.  Woohoo!

CD RELEASE CONCERT SAT. 4/3/10 - March 26, 2010

Yes, it's finally here!  Saturday, April 3rd, from 8 to 11 PM, there will be an evening of virtually unadulterated Mo music at the New Deal Cafe in Greenbelt, Maryland. The new CD will be on sale for 1/2 price (wear or purchase a Mo t-shirt that night and get your copy FREE!), and there will be, for the first time this millenium, copies of my 1998 demo Learner's Permit on sale as well. (Apparently, despite attempts to destroy all copies through an ill-conceived skeet shoot, my parents kept a few boxes. If you do decide to buy it, though, don't say I didn't warn you.)

Music-wise, it will be just me and my guitar, playing mostly originals, all night long, yes indeedy, your eyes do not deceive you - I can fill as much time as I want with original music. Which will be pretty much the whole night with a few favorite covers thrown in to mix things up here and there. Yay!

The New Deal Cafe is a fantastic listener's venue that serves awesome Lebanese food as well as beer and wine. There's no cover (tips are encouraged), and it is an all ages, smoke-free establishment.

Details, for posterity:

Saturday, April 3, 2010
Doors at 7 PM, Music starts at 8 PM
The New Deal Cafe
113 Centerway, Greenbelt MD (click for map)

See you there!

Honeyed Out - February 10, 2010

First off - thanks to the hardcore Greenbelters who braved the snow to come and enjoy a great night of music at the New Deal Cafe this past Sunday.  In response to the calls for a recording of my version of Honeyed Out written by Kris Delmhorst, I have this link on YouTube to Dave Nenner's recording of one of my open mic performances in Ellicott City.  The recording picks up in the middle of "No More" (one of mine) and "Honeyed Out" starts at about 1:35.  Enjoy!

SNOWMAGGEDON - February 7, 2010

The gig is ON!  The New Deal Cafe IS open!  See you at 5 PM!


Yes, the rumors are true. As I have been putting more time and energy into my veterinary career, the amount left over for gigs that run to the wee hours is dwindling. As such, the gig tonight, Thursday, January 21st will be my last Bench show until the summer. So come on down and help me end this run with a bang! The Judge's Bench is a fantastic neighborhood pub in Ellicott City with a marvelous microbrew selection (and none too shabby in the scotch department, as well).  This is a favorite venue of mine, and there seems no fitter place to park my bar gigs until later in the season.  I'll be playing from 9 PM to 1 AM and the kitchen stays open late. More details to be found on the calendar page. And mark your calendars for the CD Release Party at the New Deal Cafe in Greenbelt, slated for Saturday April 3rd.

Benefit Shows this Fall! - October 16, 2009

The leaves are turning and the weather's gone all topsy-turvy, so it must be Fall here in DC! And that means benefit shows for all kinds of furry critters, from wild to domestic. Check out Mo's upcoming open house shows at these special locat shelters: The Second Chance Wildlife Center (Sat., Oct. 17 in Gaithersburg) and the Washington Animal Rescue League (Sun., Nov. 1st). These are both family-friendly all ages events - hope to see you there!

And the hits keep coming... - August 26, 2009

Hey there!  What a great summer it's been - I've been all over the DC area, meeting and playing for lots of new folks, and I've met some awesome people.  It's only going to get better this Fall, with lots more acoustic shows.  The calendar is filling up quickly and I can't wait to see all my new friends again.

I'm also now in regular rotation on, the best internet radio station on the web.  You can choose your own artists (like Morrigan), and it designs the playlist according to what you like, including making suggestions based on your preferences, which you can approve or not.  The more you use it, the better it learns your tastes.

Hope to see you there! peace -Mo

Thank You! - December 8, 2008

Well, we did it! Fur Love managed to raise over $3000 for the Washington Animal Rescue League. Thanks so much to everyone (too many to list!) for their help in ways large and small. I could not have done this without you!

I have more acoustic shows coming up (see the schedule), and I hope to get the band back together for another big show in Spring, 2009. In the meantime, help me make my new album Us a best seller. Also makes a great Christmas gift! Visit M. Ladi Productions to order a hard copy, or download the album from Rhapsody.

Tickets for FUR LOVE on sale now! - November 3, 2008

Yep, that's right! Tickets for Mo's long-awaited CD Release Party are now available. This party has a new twist - it's a benefit concert for Mo's favorite charity, The Washington Animal Rescue League. Click here for more information.

Happy Birthday - October 12, 2008

October 12, 2008

I hereby dedicate this twenty-five dollar donation to the Obama Campaign for Change to my father, Joseph A. Condo, for his 60th birthday.

Dad, you have always been a shining example of the honor and integrity that one can achieve. You have always taught me that to be true to ones own values is more than its own reward. Thank you for providing a guide against which I can judge my own actions, thoughts, and beliefs.

Ghandi once said, "We must be the change we want to see in the world." Thank you for being that change, and for believing, and helping me to believe, that the change will come.

Thank You, Dad, with all my heart, and Happy Birthday!

This was supposed to be a bulletin about an upcoming Virginia show this weekend! But, that show got canceled. However, I do have two other shows this week - in Silver Spring (Weds nite) and Baltimore (Thurs nite). Also, I'm working on getting a DC gig and a VA gig for later this month. As soon as I have those shows confirmed, I'll send a new e-mail. In the mean time, check the calendar early and often for updates. peace...
