This weekend I’m traveling down to New Orleans with Bushwick Book Club founder, Susan Hwang, to perform with the New Orleans branch of BBC. I couldn’t be more excited. New Orleans is one of my favorite cities AND we’re all writing songs inspired by one of my favorite playwrights, Tennessee Williams (the others are Eugene O’Neill and Arthur Miller in case you’re curious). As it happens, I wrote my Tennessee Williams song years ago — the song “Tennessee” off The Sky Road was inspired by Suddenly Last Summer, Orpheus Descending and A Streetcar Named Desire.
If you’re in NOLA next Friday, the 27th, come to Siberia at 7pm for the show.
I’ve been listening to the Pretenders a lot lately. Here’s one song I love.
