show 66: Buffalo, NY Rust Belt Books

Turnout: 11
Money: $24 (our cut)
Personal Injury Report: Reverse! My back was really sore before the show, and felt great afterward. Maybe I'll create a new form of tie-yourself-to-a-chair yoga!

Show Report: Rust Belt Books is an awesome huge bookstore, full of old rare and radical stuff. They've got a beautiful little intimate space in the back for performances. It's really nice playing the show in small spaces with focused lights (and focused audience) every once in a while (most actors don't know how spoiled they are).

I think the performance went really well. I messed up the communication with Rust Belt, and let them think we were coming Friday, when we were actually there Saturday. Fortunately, they let us perform anyway, and the turnout somehow didn't totally suck in spite of the confusion. A decent discussion with enthusiastic young people (one of whom was doing a report for his theatre class).

We went to Nobody's for a concert afterward, but didn't feel much like shaking our booties. Ended up sucking the mop late into the night. Which I guess is unavoidable every once in a while in this line of work.

Did you see this show? If you did write a review, ask us some questions or comment on it. We'd love to hear it because we believe in artistic transparency.
