An Donut (by Blumie the Koala)
AN donut? Really?
Yes, AN donut. Not a typo. This is a Japanese donut with red bean filling, and that’s what it’s called. (I’m the photographer. I ate this, and it was delicious.)
The Revolution Will Be Typewritten -
Sorry for the long absence! I’ve been going to a lot of shows - and playing in a lot of shows as well - but life has gotten in the way of posting photos and such on here. I recently began writing about the arts (and food!) for CBS Boston, though, so feel free to keep an eye on the arts section on Mondays and the food section on Wednesdays to check out my posts there. My first arts post, linked here, is a profile of the Boston Typewriter Orchestra, which is exactly what it sounds like :)
A full recap with plenty of photos will be posted when we get home, but for now, here are some discussion topics and happenings from our first day on the road on the Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library/Golden Bloom/Neutral Uke Hotel tour. This update is coming to you from a hotel room in lovely Drums, Pennsylvania.
The van leaves in a couple hours! My band, The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library, is going on a week-long tour with Golden Bloom and Neutral Uke Hotel. We kicked it off with a sold-out show at Brighton Music Hall last night (as well as an epic cross-town rush to play a couple songs at Club Passim for their Iguana Fund Night, which was also sold out, I think!)
Tonight we’re at the Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn.
The rest: The Grog Shop in Cleveland, Schubas in Chicago, Gabe’s in Iowa City, a Daytrotter.com session in Rock Island, IL, a Laundromatinee.com session in Indianapolis, Garfield Artworks in Pittsburgh, and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
So excited. This is my first time touring!
If you’d like to see us, you can find more details on the Facebook event page, including ticket links where advanced tickets are available. I’ve heard that the Brooklyn and Chicago shows are already very close to selling out.
Ridiculous amounts of photos and video will be posted when I return!
Just added Disqus commenting. Now we can chat :) Feel free to leave love or hate mail (or something in between) on any of my posts!
