Short snippets from the road
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.
- vagazzling (or is it vajazzling?)
- cats flushing toilets
- Stadium Buddies™
- baby monkey riding backwards on a pig
- animals with two penises:
- koalas (two-pronged. And lots of them have chlamydia.)
- “Are you alert enough to drive? No texting…or sexting.” -Shawn’s mom
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!
