Tonight, all my crowns are made of paper

Tonight I'll be reading in New York from my two forthcoming books, The Book of Scotlands and The Book of Jokes. It happens at Starr Space (a space run by painter Jules de Balincourt) near the Jefferson L-train stop in Brooklyn. Lord Whimsy will also read, Rusty Santos (Ocky Milk and Animal Collective producer) will play music, and Aki Sasamoto will dance.

Starr Space
108-110 Starr Street
Brooklyn, NY 11237

ALL MY CROWNS ARE MADE OF PAPER:
An evening of spoken word, music and avant theatrics.
Sunday, May 24, 2009
Doors at 8, Show at 9
$8 at the door

(Blurb):
"Organized by curator Joseph Whitt, this presentation will feature performances by:

- MOMUS
- AKI SASAMOTO
- LORD WHIMSY
- RUSTY SANTOS

A lively and highly improvisational affair!

Momus will conduct extended readings from two of his forthcoming books, "The Book of Jokes" and "The Book of Scotlands," while accompanied onstage by performance artist and dancer Aki Sasamoto.

Rusty Santos will debut an intimate set of largely unreleased solo material.

Lord Whimsy will guide the audience through a menagerie of artifacts both inanimate and living."

Hi Nick, on an unrelated note; are you going to be making your way to the West Coast anytime soon? San Diego/Francisco in praticular?

Thanks for all the music backdropping my memories, some of the best my friend.

Hi Davy, thanks for those words, the answer is at the moment no, there's no West Coast show planned.

Where are you going to Café Zaiya for the post show party?

When I read the title of this post, I imagined that the crowns on my teeth were made of paper for a moment, at which point I got the shivers as I imagined them soggy and tearing as I chewed, like cat's claws and tissue paper.

Just now had the good fortune to witness this performance and enjoyed it immensely. While you were reading from The Book of Jokes I was struck by the similarity of your vocal delivery and deliberate movements to the dramatic storytelling style of Edward Ka-Spel of the Legendary Pink Dots, which left quite an impression on me when I saw them at the Troubadour in Los Angeles back in '97 or '98. I suspect it's just a coincidence, but have you ever seen him perform one of his stories?

I've had Ka-Spel comparisons before, but never really encountered his work.

Glad you enjoyed the show!

"I've been asked by the Rosenbach Museum in Philadelphia to help with it's annual public reading of James Joyce's Ulysses on Bloomsday, June 16th."

Such a bad example of English for the purpose of selling of Lordy's book on Amazon does not provide good boding!

OOH!
I missed the show...hmmm too bad.

how was it?

I've met you/Aki only once each... but my 5 words for each of you...
Momus: fun, literary, interesting, confounding, movement
Aki: extreme, playful, sensitive, creative, sexual (just had to negate the asexual from yours)
