2 Gigs coming up! – Rains but it pours

Your humble Spoon will be appearing with the Highland Shatners on St. Patrick’s Day Thursday, March 17 Freddy’s Bar 7:30 or there abouts. 627 5th Ave near 17th St. in Brooklyn. We will be playing unplugged acoustic in the main bar near the piano. The R train to Prospect Av (which is 15th St.) at 4th Ave. and Freddy’s is between 17th and 18th St. on 5th Ave. But the 5th Ave. bus from Park Slope is leisurely and drops you off right across the street. So come get your Irish on with the Highland Shatners, even though we play Scottish music and stuff from Star Trek. Bushwick Bookclub does Tennessee Williams Monday, March 21 7 PM – not 8 as the poster states. Superfine 126 Front Street, Dumbo, Brooklyn It is a great place to eat, so come early for dinner. I certainly shall. I have the honor to be among the songwriters who were asked to compose a work inspired by Tennessee Williams’ play “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” for the next Bushwick Book Club show. Accompaniment by various Highland Shatners and members of Spoonville.


Life in a Blender Plays Brooklyn

Live at Barbes Brooklyn Saturday,  Jan 23, 10 pm Life in a Blender – one of the best band to arise in New York City in the 1980s and still performing for a loyal fan base, is playing the intimate back room at Barbes in Park Slope, 9th Street at 6th Avenue. Check out this video I put together for their song “Easy Eggs” and you will start to see what I mean… I won’t be in town for this one either, but if you have never seen them, you owe it to yourself to make the journey. And if you have seen them, it has probably been way too long since you had your fix of that hot pie in the crust that is lead singer Don Rauf.
