This Saturday Night I’m Gonna Haul Ass

There are two exciting things going on this Saturday night:

Thing the First:
We are doing a brand-new format at Fools Play Improv, and I am very excited (and a li’l nervous) abouts it: It’s called “Fools Play Speed Run” and involves one of the Fools (hint: it’s me) playing and beating an old-school NES video game live on stage between improvised scenes—for REALS. No cheat codes, no save states, no Game Genie. This is an actual cartridge plugged into an actual console.

That happens at 8:00 PM at Mud Bay Coffee in Olympia.

Thing the Second:
IMMEDIATELY after I’m done with Fools Play, I will be jumping in my car and zooming all the way up to Ballard to see the Yellow Fool perform in this:

NFtN: JM+FFD & TJR!

“This” is Noise for the Needy, a Ballard-centric festival of musics in which much of collected moneys will be donated to the food bank! This lineup includes some of the best bands in Seattle right now: The Jesus Rehab, The Great Um, and of course Julia Massey & the Five Finger Discount (with the Yellow Fool on bass).

Since I won’t be leaving Oly until 10:00, I’ll be getting to the show long after its 9:00 start time, but that’s okay because JM+FFD are going on last! So I will still get to rock out with them (and The Great Um before them), but I will probably miss The Jesus Rehab *cries*

If any of my Seattle friends want to have an excellent time on Saturday night, they should meet me at Connor Byrne Pub!

And here’s a bonus: if any of my Tacoma/Olympia friends want to have an excellent time on Saturday night, they should come down and see Fools Play Improv, then head up to Seattle with me to watch some rockin’ musics! I am even willing to drive people from Olympia and back to Olympia if they’re not too keen on driving. It’ll be a late night, but well worth it!
