Support the Arts, by which I mean: Me and My Things


I came across this drawing on the internet somewhere and saved it and unfortunately I can no longer find who drew it (if you did draw it and you notice this let me know so I can credit you. I dig it.)

Anyway, as you can see and as you may have heard, the MTX is doing a couple weekends' worth of shows with the Queers and Screeching Weasel. Some have described it as "the bill of the century" and though it's pretty early in the century to judge, sure why not? The Bill of the Century, ladies and gentlemen. Also, I've heard a bit of the new SW album (Baby Fat Act 1) and it's stunning. We've got some things in the works too that you might get a bit of a glimpse of and of course the Queers are always great. So, what I'm saying is, it should be a pretty good time. Tickets are going fast but they're still available for all shows as far as I know, and I've included ticket links to those listings.

Also I'm doing the Bay Area Bookfest on Saturday June 6th, and by doing I mean I will be there at 2:30 PM trying to draw attention to myself and my book among a whole lot of other authors trying to do the same thing with themselves and their books. And if you're in Sacramento on June 19, you might want to see us play an outdoor punk rock festival type show.

More stuff may be added, you never know, but as it stands this is where things stand.

Saturday, June 6

Bay Area Bookfest, Downtown Berkeley. 2:30 PM

Not yet sure exactly what I'll be doing or where precisely I will be doing it but the Festival is in the downtown area around the BART station and I have a half hour. I figure I'll present my book in that way I have, with songs and self-deprecating anecdotes.

Friday, June 19

The MTX is playing at the Sacramento Concerts in the Park event, along with the Four Eyes, The Enlows, Rebel Punk, and DJ Whores. Cesar Chavez Plaza, Sacramento, CA, 5PM - 9PM.
