Hey y’all, the Entertainment For People show at The Woods was awesome. Laura Gibson’s playing and singing on my stories, The Soul Singer (a new story!) and Control (a reworked version of Safety from Beautiful Blemish) were nuanced, beautiful, and haunting. I hope to see a good crowd at Seattle’s show. You can see other awesome folks like B. Frayn Masters and Jason Rouse (doing a sketch AND showing a film), Jose Bold (cool music/film performance), Jimmy Radosta (funny storyteller), Dan Kennedy (superhost) and more!
In the meantime, I wanted to share this awesome photo from the Street Librarian web site! Thanks to Laura Moulton for creating this cool new thing. I hope this guy likes ACP better. Hahaha.

I’m excited to reveal that the secret musical guest that will accompany me at the Entertainment For People shows this Wednesday (Portland) and Friday (Seattle) is Laura Gibson. The acclaimed and beloved Portland singer-songwriter has released music through Hush and has played shows with The Decemberists, Rocky Votolato, and Sean Lennon!

We’re going to try and record it somehow (audio and/or video), but if you really want to experience this, you should go to the show (which also features B. Frayn Masters & Jason Rouse, Emmett Montgomery, Jimmy Radosta, and host Dan Kennedy of The Moth!).
I’ll be reading two stories with Laura at these shows, including a new story called The Soul Singer. Hope to see you there!
