I Play The Viola

It's an undeniable fact at this point that I play the viola. Seriously, I can't put that thing down. For example:

1. Killing My Lobster Patronizes the Arts
The new sketch show from San Francisco's finest opens tonight. No joke, this is some serious comedy. Last night's performance was one of tightest and funniest I've seen in a long while, and it was just the dress rehearsal. And to keep things extremely interesting, there's a different guest artist featured every show, from poet Jamie DeWolf to painter Debra Walker. There are 15 shows and I'll be on stage with the band for all of them. I don't care how much packing you still have to do for Burning Man, do yourself a favor and come check it out.

KML Patronizes the Arts
at the Traveling Jewish Theater
470 Florida near Mariposa, San Franicsco
Five shows each week August 27 through September 13
Thursdays & Fridays 8pm
Saturdays 7 & 10pm
Sundays 7pm

2. Jacopo CD release party with the Eggplant Casino and Micropixie
We're back at Cafe du Nord for a real cute sandwich of a show. Jacopo headlines with their Italian-flavored, kazoo-driven "alternative transcendental folk", Micropixie opens with sparkly, glitchy electronic lounge-pop, and the Eggplant Casino is right in the middle with our famous Afro-Latin-Klezmer-Gypsy-Cabaret style. This show is going to be so amazingly adorable, and its only ten bucks! Believe it.

3. The Eggplant Casino at Madrone Lounge
Madrone is awesome. It gets crowded and obnoxious on the weekends, but they always have interesting art, creative programming, tasty cocktails, and a mish-mash of funky, comfy chairs. I wish this place was closer to my house (like in the same town maybe?). Anyway, the Eggplant Casino takes over for an evening - mercifully a Wednesday - and as always, we guarantee a good time, great music, and snappy outfits. I have no idea about the cover, but it'll probably be in the $5 - 10 range. Cheap is in, friends.
