TAMPA!!! VANCOUVER!!! WE HAVE SHOWS IN YOU COMING UP.
TWO NORTH AMERICAN SHOWS COMING UP, in TAMPA and in VANCOUVER. that’s right.
some of you may remember us bombing sarasota with a ninja gig a few years ago when we were in town to visit neil’s aged cousins sidney and helen fagin….
well. we’re going back. they’re both 97 now, and we were headed back to sarasota to pay them a visit.
and then we were like: we’ll be there for valentine’s day.
neil and i don’t traditionally celebrate valentine’s day. i’m allergic. we’ve tried (and failed) and there are many…er…..stories about that.
but we’ll be in florida on february 14th this year.
so instead of setting ourselves up for failure once again and booking a terrible seaside restaurant in sarasota and drinking blue cocktails while watching desperate couples alternately argue and moon over each other (ick), we’ve decided to DO THIS THE WAY WE KNOW HOW and THROW A ONE-NIGHT ONLY EVENT AT THE TAMPA THEATRE.
we are calling it “HEARTBREAK HOTEL”, and we will dig into our most heartbreaking repertoire.
expect songs about heartbreak, poems about heartbreak, new material, old material, and….if we’re brave…the stories of all of our failed valentine’s.
we’ve also invited artist craig russell to design a “heartbreak hotel” poster for us, which we’ll sign and sell at the gig.
here’s some art craig did for Neil’s Sandman comic, long ago:
it’ll be a limited edition of 1,000 and if there are any leftover we’ll sell them online.
come one come all.
bring a hanky.
if you’re brave, bring a date.
Feb 14th. – Tampa, Florida

if you were there LAST YEAR, you may remember i did a FREE NINJA GIG at the VOGUE THEATER!!
it was AWESOME.
the whole thing came together last minute (read the blog HERE) and including a bunch of guests straight from the TED stage including
at least a dozen guest musicians, like the astronaut chris hadfield:
….amy cuddy teaching the the crowd to “power pose”….
and more…..who KNOWS. it’s TED so there will be a bunch of weirdos around.
