My January

Well, Christmas, New Years, and Second Christmas (Feast of Kings) always come all in a row and it's weird how that always seems to come as a surprise. Hope you all had a great one.

I have quite a bit of catching up to do with my all-important "web presence" and I'm getting right on that but first things first here: you must go to these shows. I mean, if you're in the area and feel like it and it doesn't conflict with anything more important of course. Don't forgo surgery or miss a funeral a wedding or a parole check-in or anything like that. But if all you've got going on on the days in question is watching the endless succession of Big Bang Theory reruns that are all TV ever shows anymore these days, well, I bet I'll be at least as funny as the Big Bang Theory. At least I'll try.

The first one is tomorrow, Tues., Jan 6 at Moe's in Berkeley, followed by all the other ones.

Tuesday, January 6

Moes Books, 2476 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94704, 7:30 PM

I'll be playing songs, talking up my book, reading something maybe. I'll make it fun I promise. (This is the fb invite/event thing.)

Saturday, January 10

Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, 3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd., Beaverton, Oregon. 4PM.

Songs, talking, reading, that sort of thing.

Sunday, January 11

Sandy Hut, 1430 NE Sandy Blvd, Portland, OR, 97232. 9 PM.

With Beach Party and Faster Housecat. This is a rock and roll show in a bar. The plan is for me to around half the set solo-acoustic and then to be backed up by Faster Housecat for the other half. They learned some songs I haven't done in forever so I've got to work on trying to remember how they go as soon as I finish typing this. Wish me luck. (FB event page here.)

Friday, January 23

Vroman's Bookstore, 695 E. Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA, 91101. 6 PM.

I will "rock" as hard as it is possible to do in southern California's largest and oldest independent bookstore.

Then afterwards on that same night:

Redwood Bar, 316 W. 2nd St., Los Angeles, CA 90012. 9PM

With Kepi, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, Turkish Techno, So Social, Pizza Wolf. This is a rock and roll show at a pirate bar and it cannot fail to be real, real fun it seems to me. (FB event page here.

Saturday, January 24

I can't figure out exactly when it goes up, or out, or off, or whatever the word you use to describe where a podcast goes when it is released to internet, but I'm doing the Jordan Jesse Go! podcast on this day.

Sunday, January 25

Porchlight + Sketchfest, Verdi Club, 2424 Mariposa Street, San Francisco, CA 94110. 8 PM.

This is the Porchlight storytelling series show where they team up with the SF Comedy festival Sketchfest, and I'm gonna be doing it. These are always a good time, so basically you should come.

There's more to be filled in here I think, and I'll update as appropriate but this is what I've got now.
