FRIDAY, 9.26.08 - 8P - THE ZIPPER FACTORY - NYC:
Well, there’s a couple ways to go here. The first option is to do a Dr. Evil re-tread: “When a new gig comes along, you must zip it” you know, that kind of thing.
But I think what I should really tell you about this gig is more along the lines of:
* You probably already know who you’re going to vote for.
* Even if you don’t, if you live in New York the outcome is pretty much a forgone conclusion anyway.
* All the best bits of the debate will be up on YouTube by the time you get home, so you will still be able to see John McCain tell you that this is a time of great prosperity for our country and that Sarah Palin is not only qualified in terms of foreign policy because Russia’s right over that Bridge to Nowhere, but that she also once lived next to an airport, so she’ll be able to pilot Air Force One as well.
I OPEN the show, followed by the effervescent Kaiser Cartel and then Lucinda Black Bear, who will get an adjective of her (their) own once I see her (them).
I’m sorry but I don’t have the money to offer a discount to any former Bear Stearns, Lehman, AIG, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley or Goldman Sachs employees. Perhaps Henry Paulson can pay your cover. Oh wait, that IS MY MONEY.

The Big Fall Kickoff

SUNDAY - 10.05.08 - 6:30P - CENTER FOR MUSICAL AND CULINARY EXPLORATION - CHESTNUT HILL, PA:

This is going to be a VERY special night and seats are already going fast. More than a house concert, a unique dining and listening event. The eloquent (and fantastic chef) Phil Roy hosts. He’s so eloquent, I’m going to let him tell you about it. Take it, Phil:

ABOUT THE SHOW:
The Center for Musical and Culinary Exploration Presents: Jim Boggia

He is truly one of my favorites to pick up a guitar, sing songs, and be totally engaging. He is a vital artist.

Music + Food + Humanity

Combining three passions to create one unforgettable evening. Phil Roy’s home will be open to just 30 people for Sunday dinner and performance. The evening winds down and hopefully you have made a new friend or two. The music and the food ever memorable.

ABOUT THE SPACE:

Phil Roy resides and hosts these intimate dinner concerts in a 2200 sq. ft. artist studio near Chestnut Hill PA, designed by the prominent Philadelphia architect H. Louis Duhring in 1928. The building is an addition to its adjoining manor house originally constructed in 1852. From the 20 ft. palladian window with an iron balcony there are panoramic views of the beautiful grounds and sculpture. The grand room has a huge stone fire place and original hardwood flooring. A second level balcony overlooks the entire area. It is a “one of a kind”, amazing space. The sound of the room is almost cathedral like. I’m extremely excited to be hosting dinners and performances in this very special room.

For out of town attendees there are wonderful accommodations in the manor house or nearby.

TUESDAY, 9.09.08 - 7P - WBJB EMERGING ARTISTS SERIES - BORDERS - EATONTOWN, NJ:

WBJB is one of the stations that has really supported me over the years, giving spins to every record and they even let me come in and DJ once (No, I did NOT play the Beatles. Um, yes, I DID play the Kinks).

Anyway, come out and show support for their show which they do to support folks like me. Support hose optional.

Monmouth Plaza - 135 Highway Route 35 - Eatontown, NJ

FRIDAY - 9.12.08 - 8P - ACOUSTIC CAFE - BRIDGEPORT, CT:

Opening up for Ryan Montbleau. I’m cool with opening up, because I watched a lot of M*A*S*H as a kid, and Alan Alda’s sensitive portrayal of Capt. Hawkeye Pierce showed me that it was okay to open up and show your feelings even if you were a man and particularly if you lived in tent with two other men in a foreign country during a war.

The Recap:
Friday, 9.12.08 - 8p
JIM BOGGIA
Acoustic Cafe
2926 Fairfield Avenue - Bridgeport, CT
203.335.3655

Opening for Ryan Montbleau.

$10. ALL AGES.

SATURDAY - 9.06.08 - 8:30P - STEEL CITY - PHOENIXVILLE, PA:

This is the usual week of “hey tix are going fast” reminder. My new slogan:

“Don’t take a chance, buy in advance!”

Kate Ferber opens. We are all trying to convince her that the CORRECT move is to play the Wurlitzer and stop messing about with sampled pianos. Come early to see if she’s seen the light.

The Recap:
Saturday, 9.06.08 - 8:30p
JIM BOGGIA
Steel City
203 Bridge Street - Phoenixville, PA
610.933.4043

Kate Ferber opens (playing the Wurlitzer Electric Piano - perhaps the greatest non-acoustic keyboard instrument ever made. Certainly better than ANY sampled piano).

$16 adv. / $18 DoS. ALL AGES. BYOB.
