I sure am relieved that the unknown laptop dudes who were going to come thru 2 weekends from now bailed on coming through and playing here. I've come to the conclusion -- even though I'm doing a show TONIGHT -- that I don't want to promote shows any more. Primarily it's because I'm no good at it, apparently. I won't go into all the indignities I've suffered over doing shows in the past couple of months, but suffice to say it has been really annoying.
Luckily there are people here in Iowa City who will pick up the ball; I wish them well and will do anything to help.
