AUG 19: COULTON WILL PLAY GUITAR NEXT TO A LOUD RIVER

Here is some information about a concert.

If you have friends living in the area, or are students at Smith, Amherst, Hampshire, Holyoke, or Williams colleges, or the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and who may have arrived early for their studies, please let them know that:

JONATHAN COULTON WILL PLAY GUITAR NEXT TO A LOUD RIVER

The Montague Bookmill/Lady Killigrew.
Sat., Aug. 19, 8 PM
FREE

Local author and impresario John Hodgman will soon leave the Pioneer Valley area after a summer of residency and internet-theft at the Lady Killigrew Cafe and the Montague Bookmill of Montague, MA.

But before he goes, he wishes to introduce the western counties to the song stylings of JONATHAN COULTON in a night of SONGS ABOUT ZOMBIES, MATH, AND FEELINGS.

JONATHAN COULTON, in addition to his masthead position of "Contributing Troubadour" at Popular Science magazine (absolutely true), is featured prominently on the audio edition of Hodgman's bestselling book THE AREAS OF MY EXPERTISE, and his many many songs (A NEW ONE EVERY WEEK!), including "Mandlebrot Set", "Re: Your Brains", and "Baby Got Back," have been heard on PODCASTS THROUGHOUT THE LAND.

Hodgman will introduce Coulton, and following the show, he will guest-bar tend at the Lady Killigrew while Coutlton will sit at the bar and guest-drink. EVEN IF YOU LOATHE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC, COME WATCH THIS STRANGE BIT OF THEATER DEVOLVE TO ITS INEVITABLE, TRAGIC CONCLUSION!

Both will sign books and CDs and discuss TOPICS OF INTEREST.

Three copies each of Hodgman's as-yet-unreleased PAPERBACK and AUDIO EDITION of his book will be given FREE to the first six people to purchase Coulton materials.

I'll be on the proper coast, but too many states away. Alas.

Hodg-Man,

I've made arrangements to come and hear Coulton, not only for the love of his music, but also for the love of his music in the presence of loud rushing water. Also, I've found this 1932 dollar bill and I thought you might want to see it. It is a rare collectors item and some say has an estimated value of 20,000-30,000 nickels, the hobo kind.

Keep it Up,
CT Pope

Thank you, Pope.

I hope you appreciate that what you have done is very illegal.

But so long as you are by a rushing river, you cannot be arrested for internet couterfeiting.

So: bring a sleeping bag for the rest of your life.

is it just me or does the signature of secretary of treasury look like his pacifier?

was he two years old at the signing?

As much as I love John Coulton, I was terribly disappointed to discover that the subject of this post did not read (as I'd previously thought) "ANN COULTER WILL PLAY GUITAR NEXT TO A LOUD RIVER".
