Not Sure Why I Do This, But Doing It Anyhow


Upcoming things are listed here. (There are more as-yet-unannounceable shows to fill in when the time comes and I'll try to update the list as soon as they become announceable.)

First off, as I've mentioned here and there, I'm going to be teaching a class in novel writing (focusing on building and developing narrative voice) through the good people at Writing Pad. (They've just started operations in San Francisco, being previously an LA thing.) It'll be five weekly three hour evening sessions beginning Wednesday Sept. 30. If you want to join, now's the time: sign up here. (There's a payment plan if that helps, so inquire within.)


Sunday, Sept. 20

Punk Rock Sewing Circle Presents..., Impatient Youth, Dr. Frank, Yo, Edge City Ruins, International Cafe Revue, at Eli's Mile High Club, 3629 MLK, Oakland CA. All ages. 6PM.

This is the inauguration of an East Bay edition of the now annual SF Punk Renaissance festival. International Cafe Revue features J.D. Buhl of the Jars, plus members of Psychotic Pineapple, the New Critcs, and Young Adults. (Way back when I used to imagine that when I grew up and became a rock start I'd write songs like the Jars' "The Time of the Assassins" though I never actually managed to do it, so I hope they do that one.) Edge City Ruins features Jules from Kwik Way and Ike from the Boneless Ones, Fang, etc. I'll be playing a solo set.

Saturday, Oct. 10

Two things happening. First:

Well the details are quite sketchy on this but I will be participating in some form in the San Mateo County Library YA Novelist Convention. This will occur sometime between the hours of 2PM and 6PM at some location on the Peninsula.

Then, later that night:

I'll be part of a truly impressive line-up of satirical writers, presented by Litquake under the name Foolishness, Stupidity, and Vice, Z Space, 450 Florida St., San Francisco CA. 8PM. Tickets available here.

w/host Ben Griffin and featuring Lisa Brown, Will Durst, Mark Fiore, Daniel Handler, T. Geronimo Johnson, Frank Portman, and Tom Toro

Saturday, Nov. 21

Queers, MTX, Lillingtons at the Gothic Theatre, 3263 South Broadway, Englewood, Colorado. Tickets here.

More to come, so... yeah.
