Is this cool, or sad?

My favorite musical artist, David Thomas of Pere Ubu, is now taking bookings for solo concerts — in people’s living rooms. I’m preferring to think this is cool, a la Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory doing one-time plays staged for audiences totaling all of 40.

Here’s the info… and a friend and I are already figuring out how we can round up 30 people to join us.

    How long did it take you after reading about the performance to download the contract and begin to think of ways to pay for it?

    You’ll be needing to find that waiter to serve the Vichyssoise…, “it’s a potato soup, sir…”

    Funny, until he was interviewed on May 3 by Charlie Rose, I didn’t realize he played
    John the Baptist in “The Last Temptation of Christ” back in 1988.

    I sure do hope that you had a good turnout for “The Size of Pike” this weekend past.
