I love writing. You know what else I’ve found I kinda love? Being up on a stage and telling stories to an audience, in person. It’s not something I almost ever get to do. Luckily, my good friend Juliana Finch (Singer, songwriter, smart person) has let me share a stage with her before.
We want to do it again.
Please note a few things about that poster:
THING NUMBER ONE: The time and date are not filled in.
THING NUMBER TWO: The show’s audio will be recorded and released on the internet.
These are both important. The show would take place in Atlanta. In June. We’re thinking June 22nd, it’s a Friday. But we have to book a venue. And when you book a venue for a strange show like ours, they like to know people will be coming.
Right now we don’t know if anyone wants to come to our show. Seriously, this is a problem. We really wanna do this, but we need to know if people are interested. It’s 2+ hours of Juliana singing and me telling stories and both of us discussing, with each other and the people around us (that’s you) the creative process.
HINT: The creative process often includes cookies.
This show will make us no money. Actually we’re gonna lose a lot of money doing it. I mean, to be perfectly honest with you – we will each lose decent money. There’s travel, set-up, time… it’s not the cheapest thing in the world. And we still want to do it. Because we love it and we thing you’ll love it. But you need to let us know that you want to see it, that you’re interested in our brand of madness.
As for why the recorded audio part is important, well… partly because even if you aren’t there you will get to hear the show! But also because this could be the start of something bigger. But it can’t be if we don’t do it.
We’re not asking for money. We’re not asking for anything other than people who are interested simply tell us they are interested. That’s all. If you are in the Atlanta area, or will be in late June and want to see a show that doesn’t come around often (we did the last one 2 years ago, lord) – just let us know.
Validate our existences, people! We’re needy artists! C’mon!
…ahem. I mean… You know… Whatever. We’re cool either way. No big deal.
…we love you…
