st. paul, rockford, beyond

I just posted a slew of dates, from Friday into late June, on the tour page. I'll be in St. Paul this weekend with Don Stiernberg, then on to Rockford, and there are tickets available for each of those. The first several of my summer shows with Redd Volkaert are also listed; and you can see some upcoming Hideout programming.

Speaking of which, Wendy Lewis up in Minnesota has had some car trouble, so, sadly, no Wendy this Monday. I'm nosing around for something else to do and will post what it is any moment now...

On Tuesday I snuck away from home and saw Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead, the new documentary focusing on the 1970s-era National Lampoon. I expected it not to be an altogether satisfying telling, and it wasn't. More on that later.
