I’m trying to fight it, but sometimes you just got to wait it out. Yes I’ve got that winter cold and cough that wakes you up every morning with a cup of flem. Hallelujah! So here I am.
Now that all my disgusted readers have left the building I can get right down to the important stuff.
Since my move to New York City I’ve seen lots of things. People throwing up on the sidewalk, raw hamburgers that taste really good, falling down the stairs after a young hispanic boy tries to hit on me, reading lots of autobiographies, and having a man tell me he loves my show but my cut off “jean shorts are very inappropriate.”
You probably think I’m a crazy person, and we’ll you’re right. I was born on leap year, so I’ve got that going for me.
Regardless, I’ve enjoyed playing lots of music around town and I appreciate those who come and share those experiences with me. So hats off to you, patrons of the arts. I couldn’t do it without you, and it’s always good to know that others know what you’re talking about. I’ve also been helping with Jeremy Current’s podcasts lately so check out his latest post from today, I’m playing banjo: www.jeremycurrent.com
And yes it’s that time of year when way too many people are out with shopping bags, which makes it feel like there are really twice as many people on the subway. But; it’s still nice, and I’m glad to be spending my first Christmas in New York, where it’s really freaking cold.
In other news, I’m getting involved a bit in the local Williamsburg community and booking some Saturday shows at Pete’s Candy Store on Lorimer street. Look it up if you’ve never been. I play there a lot, but this time I’ll be bringing out some of my favorite acts.
Also, look for another Rockwood date at the end of February. For now I’ll do my best to shake this cold. See you next time, b
