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
lottery tickets
Simone Weil
poisoned continental congressmen
mining disasters
Ashland, Kentucky
mysterious airships
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.

With Samantha Hunt, author of The Invention of Everything Else.

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