December 27th, 7:45pm

Sidewalk Cafe
68 Ave. A (@6th St.)
New York, NY

Can I just tell you that this night is happening, and it’s incredible.  It hasn’t even happened yet, and it’s incredible.  Leslie Graves is playing her set first at 7pm.  I’m backing her up on my Korean drum (Jang-gu) and vocals.  And Julie Delano too (vocals, bass).  Then, I’m playing a Relastics set with Leslie and Julie on vocals and dance moves, along with MARLON CHERRY and NAN TURNER guest drumming.  Come on.

THEN, Nan Turner performs around 8:30pm as Nan and the One Night Stands.  And guess who gets to be a one night stand?  Guess who gets to wear hot pants and dance like a mother?  Yep…

THEN, GOLD plays and shines in all her punk/rock/girl-band glory.  That’s Julie Delano’s incredible songwriting and bass playing with me and Leslie on harmonies and Christy Davis on drums.

There you go… that’s all I can say.  Things will happen.  Much of it will not be in our control.  It’s funner that way.
