July 18

I’ll be performing a piece for spoken word and electronics on Sunday, 6 August 2017 at 2:30 PM as part of the 13th Annual Electro-Music Festival running from Friday, 4 August to Sunday, 6 August, 2017 at the Irving Theater in Indianapolis, Indiana [directions]. The entire weekend is a long-form celebration of electronic, electro-acoustic, and experimental music that runs the alphabetic gamut from the abrasively new to the zestfully soothing, with a three-day bill jam-packed with amazing musicians I’ve had the pleasure to work with and otherwise revel in for several years now. I’m bringing my combination of left-field storytelling and digital atmospherics to the party, and I get to spend the rest of the time enjoying and educating myself in how it’s done. It's a real bargain for anyone interested in music on/off the beaten path.

March 31

Anyone else going to the Radiohead show in New Orleans on Monday? I'm a huge fan who's never seen them live, so I'm taking the day off to ride the Crescent train down and spend most of the day waiting in line like a nut for a decent spot. If anybody else has general admission/floor tickets, maybe we can do a mini meet-up and save each other's places in line for food/bathroom breaks/chat/phalanxing our way to center rail?

February 28

The Dancehall of Beautiful Radiant Things is a social-mixer-disguised-as-a-slow-dance-club that welcomes dancers and non-dancers of all skill levels to share in a night of song-length social vignettes. Upon entry, attendees are given a dance card with 21 spots for 21 songs. Fill your card with friends, with strangers, with secret crushes, with future besties. That's 21 chances to be present and connect with a dance partner for the length of a simple, 3.5 minute serenade. All proceeds go to benefit Figment Oakland. See you soon, and save us a dance.

2015 marked the 800th anniversary of the first Magna Carta, and Liberty Tales is a collection of stories and poems that take a wide-ranging collection of responses to the issues of liberty, both personal and legal. Some relate to specific clauses of the original document, while others are more concerned with how we experience and search after freedom in the 21st century. This launch event will feature stories from Katy Darby, Alison Lock, Cherry Potts, Anna Fodorova (read by Carrie Cohen) and David Guy (read by Cliff Chapman), along with poems from Bernie Howley and Jeremy Dixon.

November 5

Liars' League is a themed monthly fiction night, where professional actors read new short stories by writers from around the world. The stories this month feature baby rats, traumatised soldiers, uppity moths, self-consuming metafiction, 80s action figures, and a very sinister housing committee. No narrator is too unusual, no story too strange for our Us & Them event, as we hand over the mike to collective voices, extraordinary viewpoints and life-or-death clashes and connections.

September 28

I will be shooting a busking video on Newbury Street in Boston at 6:15 on 9/29, and I'd love to have some MeFites as background players! The shoot will be about 20 minutes, and I will get everyone beer or an equivalent non-alcoholic beverage at Bukowskis afterwards.
