This will be like a home coming. Hope to see all my old Chicago friends after these rough years for a night of true words and good music. It's going to be wild to read excerpts from my new book Busking Blues from Roadside Press at The Gallery Cabaret where many of the chapters in the book take place. It won't be stiff either. Some of my old band from Cousin Bones will be backing me up. Hosted by incomparable poet and sage of the street Emilio Maldonado . Whiskey Bob Taylor & the Twelve Steps are champion gladiators of the Jug Band Battle circuit. I highly recommend their album Menace to Sobriety full of inventive music and wordplay as good as any roots music of yore. To top off the night we are honored to have Amanda Standalone in town. I urge you to search her songs and TV appearances. Her album Trouble will tear your heart out and stomp on it (in the best way). Come get a copy of the book (you're probably in it), hear some top notch tunes, have some laughs, and see old friends
