Hello, Southern California!

The photograph above was taken by Michelle Hazuda in a living room in Medford, Oregon, but now we’re here! The sun and the ocean have been so generous, I feel pretty awkward with nothing to offer in return, squawking my modest thanks up from a broken sidewalk.

So let’s offer something in return. A surprise curve ball made out of music.

If possible, let’s have an impromptu show on Wednesday. If you’d like to host somewhere within two hours of LA, please write to — we’ll sort out the responses and see if we can make it work.

It can be something crazy. It can be something wild. It can be anything. As long as you are trustworthy, reliable, and have a way of rounding up and hosting a decent gaggle of people.

Money would be cool, too. But it is not everything. You, us and music seem to be everything to me.

YES! m.
