CONTEST – Joe Pernice @ The Dakota Tavern – September 24, 2009
Chris BarneyEver since they announced Joe Pernice’s upcoming gig at the Dakota Tavern back in July, I’ve been telling myself that I’d have his new book It Feels So Good When I Stop, for which this is a promotional jaunt, read and absorbed. I mean, I had an advance copy of the novel in hand by late July and surely a little less than two months would be plenty of time to get through it – after all, it was hardly an omnibus edition of The Wheel Of Time or anything.
And yet, here we are just a week out from the September 24 show and I’ve yet to even crack the spine on it. Free time for reading just hasn’t materialized as I’d hoped and when there is a moment, there’s more time-sensitive stuff to be plowed through (library books, magazines, etc) so I guess I’ll just have to go into the show, which is part performance, part reading, and let Joe tell me his story himself. Or little bits of it. I did at least manage to listen to the CD of the same name, though, so at least I’ll know the songs he’ll be playing at the show but considering that they’re all covers, I hope he throws a few of his own songs in the mix as well.
Tickets for the show are $18.50 in advance and $20 at the door, but courtesy of Against The Grain I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show – to enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to feel so good when I stop” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, September 22.
