So, I’ve got a few shows in LA this weekend (hence the title of this blog post). And since they’re all pretty special, please allow me to give you the details, as I’m sure I’d like to see most of you who would want to and could reasonably fit into each respective venue, be there!
SATURDAY February the 19th: Solo acoustic show at the Skybar at the Mondrian Hotel
OPEN AT: 8 PM
SET TIME: 9 PM
DETAILS: This is just me, playing acoustic, by a pool, on the roof of a posh hotel in Los Angeles. If that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, then I think you need to change your… tea… brand.
TICKETS: No tickets for this – it’s free – but you DO HAVE TO RSVP here: mondrianLAsessions@morganshotelgroup.com
AGE RESTRICTION: This show is, unfortunately, 21+
BUT TO MAKE UP FOR THAT 21+ SHOW, I will be playing a straight-up kids show!
“Straight-up” is probably not the best word to use there…
I will be playing a neat kids show!!
Anyway, here’s the info on that-
SUNDAY February the 20th: Solo kids show at the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts!!
OPEN AT: 2 PM
SET TIME: 3 PM
DETAILS: It’s just for kids (and parents/guardians, “booo” – am I right, kids?) with reading by author of awesome books, Dallas Clayton, and other FUN STUFF!!
TICKETS: This, too, is FREE, gratis, free! But for this too, you must RSVP: email@example.com
Also don’t tell your kids what the first part of that email address means.
AGE RESTRICTION: (Just don’t be a weirdo, o.k.?)
ALSO later that evening… The Grande Finale… It’s like Lollapalooka…
SUNDAY February the 20th: BIG show at the Eagle RockCenter for the Arts
OPEN AT: 8 PM
STARTS AT: 8:30 PM
DETAILS: Did you notice I didn’t say “SET TIME,” above? That’s because there’s no specific set time! This show will be a rollicking laugh-riot, wrapped in a pulse-pounding cyber-slam, hidden in a conundrum. I will be hosting and playing music throughout, but oh, what wonders will I be hosting to you – or you to – or just “hosting!”
WE’VE GOT COMEDIANS like my friends, Paul F. Tompkins and Jen Kirkman, as well as all these people I’ve never met, like Jonah Ray, Kumail Nanjani, Nick fuckin’ Flanagan, and the friggin’ Sklar Brothers!
WE’VE GOT ANOTHER MUSICAL SET by my main man Michael Runion!
And the only thing I’d have never said would ever happen in my life if you’d have asked me “What do you think’s gonna happen in your life?” back in 1983…
A QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION WITH the one, the only, the Keith Morris from the Black Flag, the Circle Jerks, and the OFF!
This will be somewhat free-wheeling, and I want to get some audience participation, so come with questions for both of us!
Or either of us!
TICKETS: (you thought I was gonna forget, didn’t you?) $10.00 -click here-
AGE RESTRICTION: None! It’s all ages! If you’re a bad parent, totally stay with your kids after the kids’ show (as long as you buy an extra ticket for him or her).
Come help us make this thing good!
AND FINALLY, the only OTHER thing I’d have never said would happen in my life, etc… (before last fall, anyway)…
WEDNESDAY February the 23rd: Solo show @ The Barn at UC Riverside
OPEN AT: 8 PM
SHOW TIME: 8:30 PM
DETAILS: Well, notice I didn’t say “SET TIME” again? That’s because KEVIN GODDAMNED SECONDS is playing this show with me!! You heard that right, you jerks! (not you)
We had the pleasure of traveling through the South West with Mr. Seconds last fall, it was amazing, and I am honored to be doing it again. Will we work out some harmonies for an old 7 Seconds tune? You’ll find out…
After that, on to SF!
