new upcoming gigs (NY! CT!) but also I'm writing from the woods

Hey Hartlist,

First of all, I’d like to congratulate Nature on absolutely refusing to let herself be ever really captured on film, certainly not by me and my phone.

I love ‘Planet Earth’ and its ilk as much as the next Anxious Couch Dweller, but there’s really nothing like the live show, is there? (You see where I’m going with this.)

There are some Environments where one feels Most Oneself, no? One of mine has always been The Woods, wherever that woods may be. Give me leafy birdsong silence and dappled paths (I like paths and signs, in case you’re getting some idea of me as Frontierswoman) and tall TREES and I am content (as long as there are snacks).

The other place, as I’m sure you’ve guessed? Onstage, in front of a live audience. In case you’re one of the people on earth I haven’t told, I made my stage debut at the age of nine months, when a Rutgers University production needed a baby and my parents were on the theatre faculty. (It’s a Relationship Business). This is possibly why I feel most At Home there and why I get let’s say A Little Weird when I don’t visit for too long (much like the woods).

What I’m trying to say:

JUNE 5 4PM Casual concert on our bassist’s roof in Brooklyn. Limited tickets here. North Folk opens, then we play at 5. BYOB. Rain date Sunday 6th.

JULY 8 730PM Tickets (in-person AND livestreaming!!) HERE for my annual Not My Birthday Show in NYC at the Kraine Theatre. Opening act Pearl Rhein! Danny Ursetti joining us on percussion.

JULY 11: Outdoor “Garden Gatherings” series at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in CT! Time TBD, ticket link forthcoming.

AUGUST 17 830PM Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn. Donation-based show.

Ah, live gigs. So happy to be back. On the other hand there’s pros and cons. For example, I just had to abandon my idyllic post to come inside when two wasps started mating in the air above my head. Also, virtual concerts means audience w/o borders. Please note that the birthday show offers both options. Hope to see/’see’ you there!

love

RH
