Don’t Have any Earth Day Plans? You Do Now.



If you’re anything like me this time of year means one thing only: Scrambling to find some awesome plans for Earth Day! Well you’re in luck because we’ve got just the show for you! Join us for the latest edition of “It Just Got Weirdo: A Wordy Evening @ Weirdo Records” on April 22nd for another ridiculous night of comedy & music inside of Central Sq’s awesomest & tiniest indie record shop. This month’s lovable lineup of oddballs features comedy from Ted Pettingell, Zenobia Del Mar, Sam Ike, Jesse Baade, & Nate Johnson. Plus a performance from Noah Britton!

Come on over, laugh, listen, maybe walk away with a “Dukes of Hazzard” compilation VHS tape, and HEAL THE WORLD!


So You’re Picking Up Margaret Atwood From the Airport…



Let’s say you’re given the enviable, if intimidating, task of picking up internationally acclaimed novelist/poet/essayist/activist Margaret Atwood from the airport. What’ve you got bumping on the stereo for the ride???

My money’s on Prince & Iron Maiden. Check out the full playlist in my latest post for the blog section of The Missouri Review…

I’m Going To Be Old As Hell…Let’s Celebrate!


That’s right! On Friday 4/11 I hit 30 and if you’re around Boston I’d love to see you at the Great Scott rock club in Allston for a STACKED show that I’ve put together for The Gas Presents: The Wes Hazard Show: Season 30 Premiere.

Some of my favorite Boston acts will be coming together for an amazing night of comedy, poetry & my personal coming-to-grips with my own mortality. Do it!

Check Out This Reading Series!


I had a blast last month performing at the latest edition of Mr. Hip Presents, Boston’s best new reading series. A monthly evening of poetry & music @ The UFORGE Gallery in Jamaica Plain. It was a packed house of cool people, some super-talented poets, plus a live band…AND it was classy. (Trust me, you haven’t lived until you’ve heard a jazz rendition of T-Pain’s Blame It in an art gallery).

I definitely encourage you to check out a future show.

So You’re Picking Up W. G. Sebald From the Airport…



Here we go again, the latest installment of my every-other-week column for the blog section of The Missouri Review wherein I curate & comment on the “perfect playlist” for picking up notable literary figures (living or dead, poetry or prose) from the airport. This week I went with my 1st posthumous selection, German prose master W. G. Sebald.

You’ll listen to Gorillaz, Bach, The Smashing Pumpkins & Kraftwerk among others. And if you 2 should decide to rob a bank, well I’ve even got you covered there.
