I’m not a fan of The National but just bought 4 tickets on AXS for their show at Frost, which is only 2 miles from here;

After less than a minute of their set on Colbert last Tuesday, I had taped and just watched.


that’s the tip of my foot, in New Balance, an Ehran Tool mug featuring my father’s mug, some dog treats, a ceramic rat bought at Sanchez mex of Race Street, and I presume the singer or a singer from The National, unless it’s just a guitarist doing bv.


That’s the whole item. The show is September 1, which gives me 100 days to bone up on their first 20 years or so, to optimize my enjoyment of the show.

I also bought: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Lionel Ritchie.

It’s a little extreme, and I digression, but I think I’m going to try to see all 25 shows at Stanford Jazz Workshop.

Also: Donny McCaslin plays the Bing second state June 8. (He played Cubberley, with Danilo Perez, Fall, 2000).

Plus I have onsales at Mitchell Park “Not Quite The Mitch” with Jane Monheit, June 21 and Bob Margolin, July 6. My focus — if that’s not self-cancelling term — is selling those 400 combined ducats at $20 each to replenish that $8,000 to the Earthwise coffers.
