I’m off to the West Coast next week – it’s been a while. I’m looking forward to seeing my friends out there, and refreshing my frequent flier portfolio. Well, I am shocked and mortified, and hope you will be too. I was at a fundraiser, simply making some off-the-cuff remarks to a few of the high rollers, trying to explain my position on the state of the country. Well, it was captured by a hidden camera – the scallywags have no shame! I was being perhaps a bit too candid and now the whole thing’s been posted on YouTube. Very embarrassing! I probably could have expressed myself better, but there you have it. We just have to hope it doesn’t “go viral,” as the kids say. (I probably could have forged a link between the Club 47 and the 47%, but it didn’t occur to me until later.)
- Tuesday, 10/9 at the Aladdin in Portland, OR.
- Wednesday, 10/10 at the Triple Door in Seattle.
- Thursday, 10/11 AMSD Concerts, San Diego, CA
- Friday, 10/12, the Community Center in Sebastopol, CA, and
- Saturday, 10/13 at Freight & Salvage, Berkley, CA
If you can’t attend, … you know the rest.
Enjoy the Fall!
P. S. – I’m still working on firming up the list of guest artists for the Symphony Hall show on December 28th. As soon as that’s done – by mid-October, I hope – we’ll have tickets on sale at the Symphony box office, and the Kickstarter supporters will be notified. Thanks for your patience!
