Tour News!

I just slept for seven hours through a massive thunderstorm. You never realize how much you miss something until you finally have it. Sleep, my friend. It's good to see you again. And sleep is always best with a thunderstorm in the background. You wake up and it seems like the world is ending, and that's oddly comforting. The impending apocalypse becomes a lullaby. Thunder and lightning and sound of rain in leaves are all very soothing sounds, when you're not out in the open. They remind you the Earth is still working.

I'm going on tour in less than a week! Hitting the road with Ben Passmore and Dziga Daedalus, who is going under the alias of Luka Miro. Ben's a killer graphic artist, Dziga's a killer poet. Here's the flyer Ben dreamed up.

Awesome. You would think he did this for a living or something. Dziga arranged for us to drive a friend's '97 Toyota Camry. Good gas mileage. We'll see how it tackles the Blue Ridges. Anyways, here are our dates.

December 9th--Lafayette, LA--Cites des Arts
December 12th--New Orleans, LA--Maple Street Books
December 14th--Pensacola, FL--Open Books
December 16th--Athens, GA--Flicker Bar
December 17th--Savannah, GA--The Sentient Bean
December 18th--Chapel Hill, NC--Internationalist Books
December 19th--Boone, NC--TBA
December 20th--Asheville, NC--Firestorm Cafe
December 21st--Memphis, TN--Java Cabana

We tried hard to get Atlanta. Really hard. I don't know if I've ever contacted so many people for one city, but, alas, the booking gods did not smile on us. It looks like that'll be our day to go see The Hobbit. And there are gaps in there that I'd hoped would be Texas dates or Baton Rouge, but they all fell through. Oh well, no sense angsting. I'm excited to finally get all bardic in the South. Tour ends, appropriately, on the End of the World. I can't think of a better way to go out.
