As usual, I'm posting this updated little list of upcoming shows a bit tardily, and mostly as a way of making sure I know what I'm doing. If I'm missing anything (which is quite possible) someone let me know.
We have a whole lot of stuff in the works for 2017 that I hope to be able to announce soon if things don't go awry. Otherwise, see you in Chicago and everywhere else.
By the way, we did an on-line poll on the preferred Cubs-based shirt design for the Chicago shows and the winner by a big margin was this one:
The people have spoken.
Thurs. Dec 8th: Dr. Frank solo/acoustic, at the Westchester Public Library, 10700 Canterbury Street Westchester, IL 60154 708-562-3573. Free all ages. 7PM. If you didn't manage to get tickets to the Reggie's show the following night, this is the next best thing. I'll discuss my books and play some songs if that's the sort of thing you're into.
Fri- Dec 9th- Chicago, IL at Reggies, with Nobodys and the Reaganomics. SOLD OUT, see you there!
Sat- Dec 10th- Green Bay, WI at Lyric Room, with Nobodys, Rev Norb & the Onions, George's Bush. Here's the link to buy tickets. More than half the room is sold out at the moment, and I'm told most of the Lyric Room shows' crowds are walk-in. Basically, there will be tickets at the door but I don't know how many, so if you want to be be sure you'll get in, getting advance tickets seems to be the smart thing to do.
Monday, January 2, The Ivy Room, 860 San Pablo Ave, Albany, CA. Dr. Frank solo opening for the Invalids and Surrogate Brains. 8PM. I mean, why not, right?
Saturday, January 7th, the "Lookout Bookout", North Berkeley Public Library, 1170 The Alameda, Berkeley CA. Pre-Lookouting book event with Dr. Frank, Larry Livermore, Grant Lawrence (The Smugglers), Jon Ginoli (Pansy Division), Nick Wolfinger (Jüke). 12:30 - 3PM. There's a Facebook event page here.
Saturday, January 7th, 924 Gilman St, Berkeley, with the Smugglers, Pansy Division, Brent's TV, Squirtgun, Potatomen, Kepi Ghoulie. All ages marathon, beginning at 5PM. Show of the century folks, right? Presale tickets are sold out for this show, though there will be a substantial number at the door. Line up early, though.
Sunday, January 15, SF Sketchfest 2017. TV Guidance Counselor interview/podcast with Ken Reid and Dr. Frank. Piano Fight Bar, 144 Taylor Street, SF CA. This is going to be a live show version of the TV Guidance Counselor podcast. Buy tickets here, should be a lot of fun.
