Friends in Los Angeles! On Tuesday, June 19, I will be performing at Atwater Crossing, with special musical guest and former office-mate Jeffrey D. I will attempt to lasso the cosmos for the 21st century agnostic using obscure scientific trivia, personal medical records, ontological diagrams, sociological arcana, whimsical apocrypha, the Oxford comma and jokes. Jeffrey will sing about it. You may remember Jeffrey and me from our viral triumph Suite 208 does David Lynch, which has been watched by over 265 people.
Doors open and drinking begins at 7:30, show starts at 8-ish. I will say words, propose solutions and show diagrams to illustrate my theories. Jeffrey will strum the cat gut and warble. Priced at a painless $3. Less than a pint of Shocktop.
Atwater Crossing is one of the coolest places in all of Los Angeles, one of those warehouse-y joints with lots of graphic designers and sculptors roaming the high-walled, tastefully-industrial premises. And it’s near the train tracks, so if you’re on the spectrum like I probably am, you get to watch trains go by and jump up and down. I’m pretty sure it’s where Ewan MacGregor’s character worked in Beginners. They have a performance lounge with a bar and specialize in a wood-fired za’atar flatbread, which is the Middle East’s savory answer to pizza. It’s buried in the residential part of the neighborhood between Glendale Blvd and Fletcher Drive, so definitely fire up the googley maps on your you know what.
No reservations. We’ll do this like a rock show. Just come. If you regret it, I will hug you until you stop.
