It’s been a year of quiet transitions. I’m still writing songs and tweaking my play, but the big news is that I’ve been singing with The Conspiracy of Beards. We have our last show of the season on June 16th, and I’m hoping you’ll come witness this small miracle of men singing their hearts out. It turns out we do it quite well!
First, you must know:
We only sing the songs of Leonard Cohen.
If you’re like me, you can love a tune and then have the words ruin it for you. Not the case here. I had no idea how great the man’s poetry is until I was forced to sing his lyrics 30.. 40… 100 times, and then again. And while his songs are often superb, the a cappella arrangements transform them into something uniquely transcendent and sometimes wild, especially from the middle of it all.
(That’s right, a cappella. We may go flat sometimes, but you’ll never know because nobody’s playing the piano to make it obvious.)
So, come see us
Thursday, June 16
at the a.Muse Gallery
614 Alabama Street at 18th in the Mission.
We start singing at 8pm.
