change of venue

West Side Arts informs me and one of the other performers tomorrow:
Hi Andrea and John[sic],

I am sorry to say that we are going to have to postpone the show for tomorrow. We are no longer able to use the columbus theater. You will be the first to be notified and rescheduled when we regroup and find a new location. Again my sincere apologies. It is out of our control. I feel terrible about this decision, but we have no other choice.
But to hell with it, I'm going to do a show anyway.

Right now I think it will be at my apartment, which isn't too much smaller than the place at the Columbus Theater that we'd be performing in anyway. I will arrange to get a soundman and sound system, etc. (If any of you know of another place we could have the show that might be better let me know.) My apartment's at 561 Public Street in Providence; I'll post directions later if we determine that it will be here.

I am not sure whether to keep the show at 9 pm or move it up an hour until 8 pm. If any of you are (or were) planning to come and have an opinion on the matter, please let me know.

I have not talked to anyone about this yet, but I expect that djswifty (aka MC Copulation) will also be performing; I'm not sure if anyone else will be.

I will post again later when things are a bit more settled.

Sorry for the confusion and any inconvenience.

Show update

OK, after having talked to some people and what not the show will be at 9 pm after all. So:

WHEN: Saturday, October 1 at 9 pm

WHERE: My house at 561 Public Street, Providence, RI. Directions at the end of this message.

WHO: There will be THREE ACTS. In no particular order (because we probably won't figure out who is playing when until the night of the show), there will be:
  • ME playing a bunch of original songs, a Flaming Lips song, and a Gillian Welch tune. (I actually have enough original songs to fill an hour! It's crazy!)
  • STEPHEN SWIFT, aka SWIFTY, performing under his nom d'mp3 MC COPULATION, making his PROVIDENCE DEBUT. <>

The nice thing about this is that for most of this week I've been feeling FREAKED OUT, but now I'm feeling DEFIANT, so hopefully this will translate into some GOOD ENERGY. Plus I get to enjoy the two other acts, so it'll be a good night for me!

So bring your friends and have a good time. I will try to pick up some beer but you may also wish to bring your own.

Also, dinner is still on

Despite the madness, the pre-show dinner is still on. It'll be on the second floor of the Red Fez at 49 Peck Street, downtown (not far from the Arcade) at 6 pm. I will bring my sack of quarters for the playing of pinball. See you there!
