If you'd told me a few years ago, that in 2006 I'd be appearing on a bill with a band called "Lady Hard-On," I wouldn't have believed you. But now that Andrea Myers has taken on many of HowWasTheShow's editorial responsibilities, I've had an eensy-weensy bit more time to devote to side creative projects. (My 2006 musical dream is to appear on stage as a trombone player with Twin Cities favorites Tapes 'N Tapes.)
While waiting for my brass debut, I'm happy to satisfy myself with taking part in Future Lisa's Fifth Annual Anti-Valentine's Day Show at the Terminal Bar where I will make a brief (probably five minute) cameo appearance to recite some original poetry. (Be not afraid: it's not sappy stuff -- this is an ANTI-Valentine's Day show, remember? -- and my poems tend to end with snide punchlines, not flowery platitudes.)
My setlist will include "Moondog Valentine," "A Flash of Insight," "Old Flame" and "The Last Words We Ever Said To Each Other."
Also on tonight's bill at the two stage event will be:
Venus of All The Pretty Horses (solo)It's $5 at the door and starts at 9PM.
Trailer Park Queen
Lynette Reini-Grandell (Venus's wife, who will also be doing spoken word.)
