Truth be told, I don’t know that much about his politics. But I got to open for him on a church lawn during maybe the most physically demanding gig I’ve ever done (30 mins, 85 degrees, full on direct sunlight, zero shade cover) and he was kind enough to teach me how to do the Cupid Shuffle after. Also, it’s hard not to feel an affinity for another brother whose name invariably gets commented on when meeting people for the first time. Great working with Boston City Councilman Tito Jackson last month at JP Porchfest 2015.

Had an awesome time at the Wake Up The Earth Festival in JP yesterday with Massmouth Inc. It was a day of many firsts: my first 30 min pure storytelling set, first time performing outside, first time performing with *several* babies & dogs in the audience, first time where the “stage” backdrop was an illegally parked van, etc. Drums were beating steadily in the background, I was looking at a human marionette posed across the street the whole time, and my opener was a sobbing 5 year old girl experiencing her first time on the mic. In short, it was a GREAT DAY!!!
So, in a first, I’ll be doing a 30 minute storytelling set outside during the day, at a festival. This should be very interesting. I’m definitely looking forward to it but also wondering what it will be like. Come find out with me. Here’s hoping the weather’s good. Should be a great event with lots of different performers, craftspeople, events, food, and the like!

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.
