Performance Details

Date: 21 Jun 2018
Venue: KGB Bar Red Room, NYC

The rule for this show was that every act had to be a duo. What does that mean for me, someone who is clearly incapable of playing well with others?

Well, I'll have you know that I worked with my girlfriend, Ashley, to put together a lovely set, thank you very much. Ashley (my girlfriend), whom you haven't met because she's from Canada, was going to be visiting that week so I told the show's producers and got onto the bill. Me and my girlfriend.

But Ashley wasn't there. Um, er... well, uh, she died. Yeah. She died that day. But the show must go on, so accompanied by a funerary urn from which the dulcet and ghostly tones of her voice emanated, we performed "Somethin' Stupid" originally by Carson and Gaile but best known from Frank and Nancy Sinatra (because that's not creepy at all for a father and daughter to sing). Then the spiritual connection got lost and I had to finish the set by myself, which is unfortunate because the song was Paula Abdul's "Opposites Attract" and I only knew the MC Skat Cat parts. It came out kind of awkward.
