We just got a letter from Gail who as you know is super busy preparing for the Dar Williams tour. She writes:
I am still doing this Dar Williams tour starting in September. I have been very, very busy with her since I finished recording with David. The three Bottom Line gigs for Dar's album launch on August 22, 23, and 24th are still happening, and I think they are already sold out. The following week, I have a 20-30 minute SOLO set at the Bottom Line on Wednesday, August 30th!!! (I'm scared! Not enough time to prepare because of the Dar shit taking up all of my time, but whadaya-gonna-do??) My performance is part of 'Songbirds Night' at The Bottom Line, and it is associated with Fordham University Radio Station, FUV 90.7FM. I believe the show has a simultaneous radio broadcast on that station, and they are promoting and presenting the whole deal. There are two shows, an 8PM set and 10:30PM (I think that's how it works).
I will also be doing a solo performance in Woodstock at The Byrdcliffe Theater on September 8th. It is a benefit concert to raise money for a local family whose 2 year old son has terminal cancer. Tickets are on sale for $35, and special 'royal circle' tickets for $75 include a chance to talk with the "artists" after the show, complimentary wine/refreshments, and really good seats. The other performers are Kate Pierson of The B-52'S, and singer/songwriter Jules Shear. There may be more added to the bill, but Kate, Jules and I are the headliners so far. Are there any Bowienetters hiding up in the Catskills? ;)
YEAH!!! Go Gail!
