MONDAY, 10.27.08 - 9P - THE LIVING ROOM - NYC:

One last night at the Living Room to close out the October residency. Last week was something special - “Special Guest Night”. I was joined by Joy Askew, Conrad Korsch and Kate Ferber and it was glorious. So, in the tradition of Hollywood, this week I’m planning a sequel - “Special Guest Night 2 - Electric Boogaloo.” As with all sequels, the script will probably not be as good, some of the original stars may not take part due to squabbles over money, but the special effects will be much better. Don’t wait for the DVD.

Also, expect some ingenious method of keeping me informed of the progress of the Phillies in Game 5 of the World Series (if necessary) using musical cues of some kind (I haven’t really worked it out yet, it’s more an idea).

The Recap:
Monday, 10.27.08 - 9p
JIM BOGGIA
The Living Room
154 Ludlow - NYC

NO COVER. 21+.?

SATURDAY, 11.08.08 - 8P - COFFEE WITH A CONSCIENCE - WESTFIELD, NJ:

Trust me, you don’t want me building your house - or anyone else’s, for that matter. But I’m a big fan of Habitat for Humanity and so I’ll be joining Steve Tannen at the Coffee with a Conscience series to help raise some money for the cause.

No hammers, just hammer-ons. Okay, there probably won’t be any hammer-ons either, my Van Halen repertoire is sadly lacking.

The Recap:
Saturday, 11.08.08 - 8p
JIM BOGGIA
1st United Methodist Church
1 East Broad Street - Westfield, NJ

$17. ALL-AGES.

With Steve Tannen. Proceeds to benefit Habitat for Humanity.

SUNDAY, 11.09.09 - 6:30P - THE CENTER FOR MUSICAL AND CULINARY EXPLORATION - CHESTNUT HILL, PA:

A THIRD night of fine food, good music and great folks. The first two were big successes and people keep asking for more.

This show is already half full (I like to see the show as already half full instead of already half empty) and there are only 30 places, so contact Phil soon to ensure yourself a space.

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.

The Recap:
Sunday, 11.09.08 - 6:30p
JIM BOGGIA
The Center for Musical and Culinary Exploration Concert Series
Phil Roy’s house - Chestnut Hill, PA

$60 per guest. This includes Meal, Concert, dessert and beverages of choice. This event is BYOB if you’d like to consume alcoholic beverages.

There are only 30 places. Email philroy@philroy.com to make your reservations.

Additional dates will be considered by request.

SATURDAY, 11.15.08 - 7:30P - MEDIA THEATRE?- MEDIA, PA:

Concert for Critters? Isn’t that what happens every time I play music at home and my 5 cats listen in? Okay, 4 - Elvis always runs away. I would be lying if I told you this didn’t hurt my feelings.?

Oh, I see - this is a show to raise money for the Delaware Valley SPCA, which helps critters. The concert itself appears to actually be for PEOPLE (I have sat here for 5 minutes attempting to work in a ‘Soylent Green’ reference, to no avail).?

I’m bringing the full band for this one. We don’t get out much, we’re often confused for JD Salinger, so you should probably take this opportunity to have something to tell your grandkids (which you can do when you get home from the show). Bill Deasey kicks off the show and he’s damn good.?

Come help the cause for those with the paws.

The Recap:
Saturday, 11.15.08 - 7:30p
CONCERT FOR CRITTERS
The Media Theatre
104 East State Street - Media, PA
610.891.0100

$20. ALL-AGES.?

With Bill Deasey. Proceeds benefit the Delaware County SPCA.

FRIDAY, 10.10.08 - 8P - THE SPACE - HAMDEN, CT:

Getting outta the house and making my way into the Autumnal colors of the Northeast - though this show is at night, so the colors will mostly be black.?

Please support this foray into the viability of traveling long distances to bring the music to the people.

The Recap:
Friday, 10.10.08 - 8p
JIM BOGGIA
The Space
295 Treadwell Street, Bldg. H - Hamden, CT

$10. ALL-AGES.
With Marykate O’Neil. I’ll probably play around 9p.

SATURDAY, 10.11.08 - 11P - LIZARD LOUNGE - CAMBRIDGE, MA:

Okay, Boston. I have received your 7,236 emails, MySpace messages, phone calls, candygrams, strippergrams (thanks), Phil Gramms (no, thank you) and sonograms all sounding like Dave Loggins in 1974, so I WILL come to Boston - will YOU be there?

I KNOW - The Red Sox are playing. I feel you. I’m even with you (first off, the Devil Rays aren’t even a real team and secondly dropping “Devil” from their name was pansy), but dude, LOOK at when I’m playing. You can catch the game AND my show. In the words of Joe Biden “Let me repeat that:”?You can catch the game AND my show.

The Recap:
Saturday, 10.11.08 - 11p
JIM BOGGIA
Lizard Lounge
1667 Mass Avenue - Cambridge, MA

$10 / $8 adv. 21+.?
With Marykate O’Neill and others. I’ll hit around 11ish.

MONDAY, 10.13.08 - 9P - THE LIVING ROOM - NYC:

If you missed last week, you missed hearing ‘Misadventures in Stereo’ played solo acoustic from beginning to end, with an added bonus track prefaced by a story explaining why I lost my chance to open for Springsteen last weekend at the Obama benefit after being “vetted” (it had something to do with “paling around”). Do you really think you can afford to miss what I have planned for this week?

The Recap:
Monday, 10.13.08 - 9p
JIM BOGGIA
154 Ludlow - NYC

No cover. 21+.

TUESDAY, 10.14.08 - 9P - NECTAR’S - BURLINGTON, VT:

Nectar’s? I barely KNEW her! While that’s not funny now, it will be at about hour 7 of the drive up to Vermont. But drive I must (well, I’ll actually be in the passenger seat) and play I will, though I probably won’t play ‘I Will’ unless I Am joined in a duet by Will.I.Am (and THAT joke might become funny by hour 5).?

There is no cover, but maple syrup donations are gladly accepted.

The Recap:
Tuesday, 10.14.08 - 9p
JIM BOGGIA
Nectar’s
188 Main Street?- Burlington, VT

No cover. 21+.
Opening for Scissormen.

THURSDAY, 10.16.08 - THE GOLDHAWK - HOBOKEN, NJ:

God damn, this is an awful lot of gigs to write funny shit for. May I have a pass on this one and I’ll say something amusing when you come to the show? Thanks.

The Recap:
Thursday, 10.16.08 - 8p
JIM BOGGIA
The Goldhawk
936 Park Avenue?- Hoboken, NJ

No cover. 21+.
With Marykate O’Neil.

10.23.08 - ‘MOUNTAIN STAGE’ TAPING CANCELLED:

Well, THAT’S not funny. Yep, I’m afraid it’s true. They cancelled the Keswick Theatre show that was to be the taping for ‘Mountain Stage’. Don’t know if Nanci Griffith got a cold or the crank broke off of the West Virginia Public Radio mobile transmitter, but it ain’t happenin’ (that’s mountain talk, but it also makes me relatably folksy to voters ).?
