Have you ever found yourself saying ‘gee, I’d like to see some live
music tonight’ and then the person you’ve just said this to says ‘yeah,
me too . . . but what kind of music do you want to go see?’ and then you
ponder for a moment and you say either something like ‘I’d like to hear
some Jim Boggia music, but not too much Jim Boggia music’ or perhaps
something like ‘well I know I’d love to hear some Burt Bacharach tunes,
but maybe with a little Jim Boggia flava’ or, probably more likely ‘I
don’t really care as long as there’s a great selection of beers.’ Now
does it sound familiar?
If you find yourself saying, thinking, or even feeling any of these
things this coming Saturday (7.29.00) around 10p or later, you should do
yourself (and your not very talkative friend from the above paragraph) a
fava and come up/down/out/in to the fabulous black hole known as the
Dawson Street Pub. I promise to play at least 3.5 of my own tunes, plus
probably a couple other songs that you’ll think are my tunes but really
are just other people’s tunes from records you’ve never heard (I’m
clever that way), PLUS at least one Gllbert O’Sullivan tune.
For the lousy $3.00 they’ll ask for at the door, I promise in return to
deliver at least a solid (or perhaps a squalid) $3.25’s worth of
info-tainment (ex: ‘this next song is in C# minor’). Oooo, pinch me!
Saturday, 7.29.00 – 10p
Dawson Street Pub – Manayunk, PA
100 Dawson Street (at Cresson)
And you’ll also want to mark your calendars for:
Friday, 8.4.00 – 10p
North Star Bar – Philadelphia, PA
27th and Poplar Sts.
I don’t know the phone, but it ain’t 235-STAR anymore
WITH Ben Arnold and Kenn Kweeder
See you there,
(No, the record isn’t done yet.)
Remember, you can do this everyday!
