Some other folks, too.

This Saturday, March 24th, Mosey on over to Georgetown (SOSODO (South of South of Downtown) and catch a foot-stompin’ good show with our good friends, the brothers Cortese of Electric NoNo, as they put on what the kids these days call “a show” (I’m 40 years old, I have no idea what the kids these days call things).

Here’s an official Electric NoNo video. Partake and enjoy!

Also at the show will be Stereo Creeps (I’ve heard of them, but I’ve never heard them) and Suitcase (neither).

This Saturday (tomorrow) the 17th of November 2017, Fools Play Improv is going to be performing YES once again at the Puget Sound Estuarium in downtown Olympia. Mike the Blue Fool thought it would be a fun idea to find out what people in downtown Olympia thought about Fools Play, so he set out to do some interviews. Let’s see how it went, shall we? WE SHALL:

Well, don’t you get lost on your way to the show; it’s surprisingly easy to find! Mike must just be an IDIOT or something!

This is it! This is the show!

Hanging Out with Open Mike Eagle… and VIDEO DAAAAAAAAVE!!!!

This guy.

This guy.

Last night I went to see my pal Open Mike Eagle at Barboza in Seattle. I don’t know that I’d ever been to Barboza before. It’s a little bar underneath Neumos. Anyhoo, it was a great show. Mike killed it as always. Here’s the obligatory animated .GIF that I made of the performance:

The place was plenty packed. My pal Travis was even there! And after the show there was a line of like 50 people waiting to get to Mike’s merch table. I had to go on account of a long drive back down to Tacoma on a school night, but Mike was nice enough to give me big ol’ hugs and chat for a minute, and take a selfie:

These guys.

These guys.

I missed him on his last tour (when he became the mayor of Ferndale), so it was good to see him again! He’s a <wypipo voice>real class act and just a swell fellow.</wypipo voice>

But enough about Mike. Something amazing happened to me that got me super hyped. I got to meet none other than the one and only…

VIDEO DAVE!

Check it:

That ain't Photoshopped. That's really Video Dave!!!

That ain’t Photoshopped. That’s really Video Dave!!!

Look how excited I am in that photo to be meeting such a celebrity! You might even say I’m “giddy.” It was so cool to meet him after admiring his work. Scroll back up and look at the animated .GIF of Mike, and look at the projections splashed across him and the background. That’s all Video Dave! Didn’t he do an amazing job!? I think Mike & Prolific & Sammus were way too hard on him before last night:

AAAAAA I’M STILL HYPE ABOUT MEETING HIM!

VIDEO DAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE!!!!!

Who Gonna Come See Open Mike Eagle With Me Tomorrow!?

I feel ya, Mike.

I feel ya, Mike.

For some reason I’m having trouble finding people who wanna go see an amazing musics show tomorrow (Thursday, October 5th). Errybody so busy! Even my wife is staying home with the wee one this time, so I might be all solo to see Open Mike Eagle at Barboza.

It looks like I’m not the only one having troubles, though. Mike’s tour doesn’t look like it’s going too smoothly, either:

Ah, Video Dave. We all got our troubles. Anyhoo, all y’all who are reading this should come join me if you can:
