Seymore, Freeshow

So there's this kind of book release party thing for my book on the "street date": Tuesday, April 11. It's going to be at Cato's Ale House, 3891 Piedmont Avenue in Oakland, from 7pm to 9pm. All ages. Free.

I'll play some songs. My friend, the lovely and talented Beth Lisick is going to "host" it and read from the book, and my other friend Chuck Prophet is going to read something as well. (That should be fun: they are both great talkers and readers.) And if all goes according to plan, you'll be able to buy the book there, too. Or just hang out and chat.

Cato's is pretty much my home away from home these days. I'm a regular there (though I think they mostly know me as "Trumer Guy" because of what I usually order.) I wrote a lot of the book there, in fact, so it's fitting.

Please stop by if you can, and tell your friends and so forth, because it'll be hell of embarrassing if no one shows up.

I'm working, in my own retarded way, on other stuff, but so far what we got is:

Saturday, 25 March, 9PM, KALX Live, 90.7 FM, streamed here. Acoustic songs, talking, etc.

Tuesday, 11 April, Cato's Ale House, 3891 Piedmont Ave., Oakland. 510 655-3349. All ages. Free. Featuring me, Beth Lisick, and Chuck Prophet.

Why don't you come and "play" your book in Europe, too?!

Yeah, we'd love to come, bring our friends and buy two copies each but we're in the wrong continent...

I'll go to Cato's and buy three copies of the book, provided you sign them. Just to mix it up a bit, please sign one "Dr. Frank" - a second "Frank Portman" - and the third "Trumer Guy". Deal? This works out nicely; my wife is a Beth Lisick fan. And Tuesday is the best night for drinking.
