LA, Philly, NYC : Coming Up

Hey Everyone, First off, I want to say a big thanks to all of you who came out last Tuesday to my show at CB’s Gallery in NYC, and to all the folks who saw 4 Way Street perform at last weekend’s WXPN Singer Songwriter Festival. Both gigs were a blast. Lots of stuff coming up, here’s a brief preview: LOS ANGELES Well, all good things must come to an end. I’ve had an amazing run of shows in LA this year, beyond what I could have hoped. I’m going back to play one more, but then I’m afraid the trans-continental tour bus will be in the shop for a while. I hope all my new and old LA friends can make it out one more time to GENGHIS COHEN on TUESDAY, JULY 30TH (7.30.02) at 8:30p (NOTE: This is a re-scheduled date. I am NOT playing on the 25th, sorry for any inconvenience, confusion or nausea). This will be my farewell Los Angeles tour, in much the same way that the Who started doing farewell tours back in the ’80s (which is to say, about every two or three years). So yes, I will be back LA, but this is going to be the last one for a while. PHILADELPHIA Another couple of months go by, another show at THE POINT. This has become my absolute fave venue in Philadelphia and not just because it’s named after an early ’70s animated film with music by Harry Nilsson. This time, I’m only going to play a single show, so you may want to order tix in advance. Sadly, because I basically have no time, there’s no giveaway CD for advance ticket purchasers. This is when I find out if you really love me, or you’ve just been using me for free drink coasters all these shows. Oh, would you like to know when it is? SATURDAY, AUGUST 3RD (8.3.02) at 9p. My friend Kyler England opens. NEW YORK On the heels of a truly special night at CB’s Gallery, I tempt fate and try it again. I’ll be back at CB’s GALLERY on THURSDAY, AUGUST 15TH (8.15.02) at 8p. My recent shows in NYC have been important ones for me, and I thank everyone for coming out and showing support. This will be my first show after seeing my tax attorney, so please pay cash at the door. Um, that last comment was just a joke, particularly if any of you on my list work for the IRS, who are, of course, really fine, upstanding citizens who do great work for this wonderful country of ours and deserve all the gratitude and goodwill that we can muster up for them as they dutifully perform their . . . um. . . duties. GO IRS!!!! Perhaps we should recap: The Recap: Tuesday, 7.30.02 – 8:30p Genghis Cohen 740 N.
