Boggia – Record Release Party – 6.15.01 – North Star Bar

No Comments 13 June 2001

Hello Sports Fans,

This Friday, 6.15.01 I will celebrate the release of my
mildly-anticipated debut LP ‘Fidelity is the Enemy.’

The question is, will I celebrate it in the same manner as my 10th
birthday, that is to say, alone?

Alas, the Sixers did not come through on their promise to sweep the
Lakers so they could all come out on Friday and buy a copy of the record
(Dikembe said he’d buy 2). Yes, my show (doors at 9p, music at 9:30p
SHARP!) is up against Game 5.

So here’s what I’ll do.

* I will have sexy women parade across the stage with score updates
between songs.

* I will have a TV onstage showing the game. Not one of those passe, big
screen jobs, but a 13 inch black and white baby that will draw you into
the action (and close to the stage).

* If absolutely necessary, Mike Frank and I will act out instant replays
with Erik Johnson providing play-by-play in “Uppese” (Uppese is a
language that places the word “up” in every syllable, such as “Thupe
Supixupers upare gupouping tupo kupick thupe Lupakupers upassupes.”)

I heard Coach Brown say that one of the things that was throwing the
SIxers off was that the players were distracted by the thought of too
many people watching the first half of the games at home on tv, so maybe
the best thing to do for them would be to come on out and hear some
music. So, it’s really up to you.

The Recap:
Friday, 6.15.01
Game 5 of the NBA Finals

Er, sorry. I meant to say . . .

A Letter from Allen Iverson

No Comments 07 June 2001

Hi Everyone,

I’m forwarding this email from AI to address a concern I know some of
you have been thinking about:

Subject: Your Record Release Party

Yo J,

Did you catch the game last night? See, I told you. We’re gonna sweep
this thing for you. Man, we we’re all so bummed when we found out they
scheduled game 5 on Friday, June 15th 2001, the same night as your
record release party for your long-awaited and mildly-anticipated debut
LP ‘Fidelity is the Enemy.’ Shit, Coach is so upset about it he’s
thinking about retiring. And you know, I feel for you personally, cuz
you remember all that trouble I had with MY record release before the
season started. And if for some reason those chumps from LA get lucky
and win one, you can tell your fans this:

Allen Iverson says it’s ok to go to Jim Boggia’s Record Release Party
for ‘Fidelity is the Enemy’ on Friday, June 15th 2001 at the North Star
Bar, sponsored by ASCAP and the Philadelphia Music Conference. The fun
starts at 9p and the music starts at 9:30p. Me and all the rest of the
‘6ers promise not to do anything exciting in Game 5 until the second
half. For real.

Hope that helps you out. Good luck with the record. I gotta go put some
Ben Gay on my back.

Your good friend,
Allen Iverson


Thanks AI.
