Let it snow let it snow make it stop

January 21st, 2016

Dear Brooklyn All-Night Snow Birds,

Oh it’s gonna snow, ooooh I’m SO scared. Oh no, you mean the WIND might blow? You’re talkin’ to a kid who used to deliver the paper in the darkness of Sytacuse winters, where the temperature, the REAL temperature not some “wind-chill” BS was enough to freeze your spit before it even hit the ground. Poor house kitty, froze to death under the porch. Wild hair dad pouring boiling water out of a sauce pan over the lock of a ’74 Dodge Fury, bigger than than my whole apartment.

But I digress. It’s fun to see a show while outside it’s snowy. Cos then we’re all cozy. Isn’t that the best feeling ever?

Love,
Us

In an Elysian state of mind…

January 12th, 2016

Hi everyone,

Due to a family-related illness, Robert Whaley and Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak will have to cancel their show at The Elysian Cafe for this Saturday, 1/16.

Thanks so much. We hope to see you at the next one.

Robert

Meet me at Hangover Square this Sunday

January 1st, 2016

Two days is long enough to get over that BAD BAD HARSH hangover. I think? Is it?
Is pork soup good for that? Is greasy hamburger meat? Or – wait, right – more booze!
We’re doing a show without drums so you can hear all the stories and silliness and pure love and affliction of our music.

This Sunday!

The National
January 3
557 Lexington Avenue (50th Street), Midtown; (212) 715-2400
6 PM to 10 PM, no cover. You can have din-din or just a drink at the nice bar.

Here’s what the New York Times says about The National:
ATMOSPHERE: An elegant neighborhood bistro somehow situated in a Midtown hotel lobby.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
