Gigs

Gigs of 2016!

So many gigs this year that I forgot to post a lot of them. I was too busy gigging. Still am. Come to one of the last ones of the year, won't you? Bring your friends and your partners but don't bring children or dogs or they'll be cussing in ways your mother-in-law will not appreciate. Nobody likes a potty-mouthed dog. Thanks.

Gigs of 2015 and some of 2016, Unite!

Okay, so you already missed an awesome gig with NYSolo 6 on December 7th. What are you going to do? Here are some other gigs you could come to. They are all awesome in their way and they all require that you leave your children at home. Or don't, but then don't blame me when they turn out to be foul-mouthed atheists. There, I said it. I feel better now.
