Just as the terrible crocodile floats down the silty Nile river inviting the crafty Ibis birds to pick its jagged teeth without fear, so too do I invite you to a two-set performance from 10:00 p.m. to midnight. We’ll be joined by the fabulous Deni Bonet on violin, Ron Caswell on tuba, Dean Sharenow on drums (Bill Gerstel is feeling a tiny bit sub-par), as well as myself and Robin Aigner on vocals and various strummed instruments. Also, special guest Daniel Davis on piano.

We will be singing songs new and old about:

murderous mormons
peopleless manhattan
debt
mars
lottery tickets
Simone Weil
poisoned continental congressmen
mining disasters
Ashland, Kentucky
despair
revolution
mysterious airships
madams
hitler youth
aggrieved pygmies
Thomas Paine
doomed astronauts
19th century wall-jumpers

to name a few…

Working as a dysfunctional unit, we’ll be excavating collapsed tunnels of misery and serving up the results as gushing blasts from a rusty nozzle. There will be fleeting glimpses of quieter moments, too—but just glimpses.

Why not get there early for Michael Hearst‘s Songs for Newsworthy News at 7:00 p.m.?

If you have Songs for the Forgotten Future Vol. 2.—and like it—may I invite you to write a review on Amazon or iTunes? Even if there is no cash? I knew we could count on you.

If it rains, we’ll be at The General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen.
