Last night I gave my talk, “What good are bookstores?” at the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle. Wonderful people, and a wonderful crowd. I’ll post the talk itself as a penultimate entry in the blog, following the New York City dinner and Seattle dinner posts. Those will be in place by the end of day Monday. Meanwhile, enjoy another song from Wednesday night’s sit-down dinner....
7/6/2011 The Sorrento Hotel, Seattle, WA — John Roderick covers ZZ Top, “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” on ukulele (partial…the puzzling third verse). More soon.
Thunderstorms in New York City, the last day of my big trip. Today I’m writing reports on Toronto, North Adams, and last night’s memorable al fresco feast at the Brooklyn Grange Farm. Tomorrow I fly to Portland. One big dinner left, with John Roderick on Wednesday, July 6, at The Sorrento Hotel in Seattle, my old home. A few seats available here. That one’s going to be pure...
Vancouver, BC. Awesome. A full post is coming later today, but right now here is Nick Krgovich covering British folk dude John Martyn while we all drank Corralejo reposado and ate pie. Amazing.
Thunderstorms over Mexico City, rain pouring on 40c Cerrada Chiapas, friendly friends dropping by, pulque in the back. Come join us.
Wednesday June 22, my public conversation about literary “covers” with Larry Rinder ended in a concert by Coconuts, who played a beautiful cover of “Freight Train.” So much lovely sound from Colter, Tomo and Justin. Thank you Kadist Art Foundation and Joseph del Pesco, our hosts for the evening!
