Return to LA! Return to Japan!

Return to LA! Return to Japan!

Happy St. Martin’s Summer, Everyone! Back to school, back to work, back to life, back to reality, back-to-back, ‘Back to Black’, back-to-basics or back-up-against-the-wall, I hope you all had a great September. I’ve spent most of September in my cave. I’ve been working on a special CD for my upcoming Japan tour (details below), recording with Tracy Bonham (that stuff’s sounding GOOD), trying to finish my Live LP (more trying, less finishing), recording background vocals for albums by my friends Day One and Pete Donnelly (man, I have me some talented friends) and finding that there’s STILL things to discover lurking deep in the grooves of those Beatles’ records (prepping for White Album, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper and more coming up with the Fab Faux). Frankly, I’m ready to BUST OUT! So, I’m flying the coop (yes, I know I said it was a cave) and taking it on the road, which is to say, in the air, and traveling West and then so far West, it’s East. Which is my way of saying . . . RETURN TO LA! WEDNESDAY, 10.19.11 – 8P GENGHIS COHEN LOS ANGELES, CA Wow. LA, has it been two years? Well, you look good – been working out? I’m putting together another shindig at Genghis Cohen. They’ve always been great shindigs – you have been the main reason why. I hope you’ll come out for another. A lot of people may have forgotten about this, but October 21st is the REAL Apocalypse (not just a “spiritual” one like back in May), so this may not only be your last opportunity to come to one of my shows, it may be your last opportunity to go to ANY show. Either way, hope to see you there. The Recap: Wednesday, 10.19.11 – 8p JIM BOGGIA Genghis Cohen 740 N. Fairfax Avenue – Los Angeles, CA $10 – 21+ SATURDAY, 10.22.11 – 8p FAB FAUX plays THE WHITE ALBUM ORPHEUM LOS ANGELES, CA Okay, the rest of this email operates under the premise that the Apocalypse will NOT take place on October 21st. In the event of the Apocalypse, these shows will all be canceled or, at the very least, moved to different venues. I’m joining the Fab Faux to perform the White Album in its entirety. This show finds me in my role as Faux #6 – Utility Infielder. I’ll be running around the stage playing acoustic and electric guitars (and left-handed 12-string electric guitar played upside-down), keyboard, bass, drums (oh yes, drums), percussion, singing and doing even crazier things on ‘Revolution 9’. Quite the spectacle. The Recap: Saturday, 10.22.11 – 8p FAB FAUX Orpheum Theatre 842 S. Broadway – Los Angeles, CA $39, $49, $59, $69, $79, $89 – All Ages Get Tix RETURN TO JAPAN!

LIVE AT CAFE GOATEE’ CD I can’t believe I’m going back for my THIRD Japan tour in the last 12 months. Getting a chance to travel Japan and play has been a true gift. Thank you to all the wonderful people in Japan who have been coming out and making the shows such a success and enabling it to continue. I can’t wait to come back and see you all again! During the planning of this tour, I was asked about doing a special CD release for the Japan market. The result is ‘Jim Boggia – Official Bootleg . . .
