but tonight a whole lotta artists made a whole lotta magic up on a stage that i had the honor to co-host. i feel humbled and blessed and like i got the good parts. i feel so much gratitude. there were too many highlights to list highlights.jen cross was the awesome. the last minute toury people (Hazel Pine, Neely Bat and the Dandelion Junk Queen) were awesome. Audience drumrolls while bios are read are the awesome. Fuck. It was just awesome. Yes words are officially failing me. Maybe it being 2:20am has something to do with it.

MODERN TIMES (in SF)

The Perpetual Motion Roadshow is an indie press touring circuit, an unholy combination of a vaudevillian variety show and a punk rock tour. Each month, three new lively indie performers pile in a car and do seven cities in eight days, doing shows with the bold guarantee: NO BORING READINGS OR YOUR MONEY BACK! Transnational, it loops the northeast May-October and makes runs down the west coast during November-April. Founded by No Media Kings, we've been making our own fun since 2003 -- running on pure volunteer power and dirty dirty gasoline.

Wed. March 21, 7:30 pm. Modern Times (888 Valencia St) w/blue-collar academic Patrick Duggan!

The performers are Joann Riedl and Norman Cristofoli, with opening acts by Cindy Emch and Patrick Duggan. The show starts at 7:30.

Bios:

JoAnn Riedl’s deep, aggressive vocals and percussive, dirty, rock-guitar style hail from Milwaukee. "Her ability to switch from acoustic to electric in an intimate solo setting, along with her raucous, almost punk, approach, has set her apart from her peers with reckless abandon," according to Brian Barney and David Luhrssen of the Milwaukee WI Shepherd Express. Playing live since 1998, Riedl has performed solo, with the backing bands Kicked Out Scout, the Relief, and is a front woman for the Barrettes. She is working on her third full-length album. JoAnn has performed in Canada, Ireland and throughout the US.

Norman Cristofoli is a poet and spoken-word performer and publisher of the Labour of Love literary magazine. He is also the co-founder of the Coffeehouse website for independent artists. However, if all the world is a stage, then he prefers to stay in the tattered old balcony seats, hiding in the shadows, away from the spotlight. He believes that too much emphasis is placed upon the artist, whereas the only thing that truly matters is the art itself. Bios should be buried with the artist... let the art live on.
