warm weather warning; or war mw e ther ; or wah hoo wah

i heard about your band from dartmouth alumni association events calendar. I am an artist manager and concert promoter, although I am mostly inactive –like a leave term, not quite retired. But I hope to make it to SF (from Palo Alto — 38 miles out — )for your show.

Also, I love the graphic design of all your flyers and such that i see here on line.

i will try to write about this for my blog, plastic alto

i would buy this — is this 7 inch vinyl? –just for the dogs painting — we likes dogs:

i am heavy into busk. see ICOBOPA above. You can busk at Lytton Plaza!!

the show is Thursday, January 26, 2012 at Cafe Du Nord in San Francisco, with Filligar and Terraplane, and co-sponsored by Dartmouth Club, and close enough to my birthday that I could do a big ticket buy and invite all my friends, and do a Don Burnham I mean Don Birnam binge-drinking “Lost Weekend” thing — my birthday is that Saturday, or at least do some pre-show poetry shopping at Books and Bookshelves 99 Sanchez in Duboce Triangle. Donald Burnham was the 1943 NCAA mile champion for Dartmouth and later a Navy psychiatrist who I corresponded with regarding his coach the late great Harry Hillman. One of the other runners of that era told me that when “Lost Weekend” came out in 1945 all the runners cracked up (figuratively speaking; they laughed) because the characters name — the drunk, Ray Millard’s acting — was so similar to their friend, the straight-laced champion. Pass the fire, pass the skoal, brothers!

    talked to justin from warm weather and we hope to work something out wherein the lads can pass through palo alto or stanford around the time of their show in sf. also, he said that he and his bandmate I — and millions of you, plus readers of Plastic Alto — have seen on tv, singing “Killer Queen” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” on “The Sing-Off,” recent grads and ringers for Dartmouth Aires — also, Austin Willacy and other House Jacks were consultants to the show.
    Justin, who is from Philly but born in Palo Alto and lives in LA, said he likes Fleet Foxes and also a band featuring a Big Green from his era Ramona Falls, formerly Menomena — Brandon Knopf is it? (It says Janet Weiss no relation I don’t know her but if you humm a few bars I can try to pick it up plays drums therein, Ramona Falls, not Warm Weather, I digress).
    I suggested he hang out in town and see Wilco in San Jo on 1/28.
