Dear Friend, Fans, Fam,
Here are some things I have been thinking about lately.
- I have been reading a book called Reading Lolita in Tehran. I also recently read Watership Down for the first time. I continue to try to read Infinite Jest and get distracted. Think of me what you will.
- There is a new coffee shop RIGHT ON MY CORNER and it’s a good thing I can’t drink coffee because the cafe is adorable and chill and they are really nice and I would spend all my money there. (err…. here. I’m writing this update from the cafe. I got a cheese pie.)
- I am ridiculously excited to be playing a bunch of shows for you, soon. It all starts at a pair of House Concerts in Michigan and Indiana, which you can probably get an invite to if you contact me. I’m happy to pass on your info to the hosts and see what kind of space they have.
August 12 in Pinckney, MI (near Ann Arbor) and August 13 in Lawrenceburg, IN (across from Perfect North Slopes, not far from Cincinnati).
THEN August 14th I’ll skip back to NYC where it will be my honor and pleasure to play my 3rd Big City Folk Fest at the LIC Bar. Their back yard is like a Beer Garden in the summer and it great and beautiful and you should come (it’s going on the night before, too, so if you’re not in Indiana with me, check it out!).
And finally August 18th I’ll be playing Sidewalk Cafe’s Anti-Folk Fest on the Lower East Side right before David Warpaint, who I adore.
All of these dates are on my shows page. But you know what dates are not? FALL AND WINTER TOUR!
That’s right. Coming soon to a town near you! Hopefully! (Unless you don’t live in the midwest or South… in which case – 2017!)
We’ll be announcing tour dates soon, so stay tuned, but in the mean time, if you know of a spot between NYC and KC that you just LOVE or if you’d like to host a house concert in early October, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or facebook.com/jokroger. Same for if you are between NYC and the Florida for early December! I promise to get you all the tour dates as soon as the final few are locked in.
I truly can’t wait to get back on the road and spend time with so many familiar and new faces. See you SOON.
