Autumnal Evening with Southpaw Jones

An Autumnal Evening with Southpaw Jones
Wednesday, October 22, 2014
7 pm
Hyde Park Theatre

511 West 43rd Street
Austin, TX 78751
$10 General Admission
Your purchase of advance will call tickets via PayPal is highly encouraged.
There is no service charge:

Southpaw Jones celebrates creative freedom and the freedom of a bare stage with a mostly solo performance in one of Austin’s most intimate, magical rooms. Southpaw has spent many hours on the Hyde Park Theatre stage as part of Spike Gillespie’s long-running Dick Monologues. (Spike has agreed to open the show and introduce Southpaw!) He started 2014 with surprise Frontera Fest success in a one-man short-form show that made it all the way to Best in Fest. He now returns to the Theatre to expand that original work with more original songs, more half-rehearsed monologues, and more personal experimentation. Prepare to laugh and cry spontaneously and perhaps even simultaneously.

This is also the unofficial and late album release celebration for Southpaw’s Domestic Love Canoe, a collection of 10 love songs, available now at most online music retailers. Download cards and other merchandise will be on sale the night of the show.

Covered off-street parking for the patrons of HPT is available in the lot at 4315 Guadalupe Street, just north of The Parlor. You can drive through The Parlor’s parking lot to reach it. Evening HPT parking also available at Kenneth’s Hair Salon, just south of HPT, and at the Hyde Park Church of Christ on the northeast corner of 43rd & Avenue B.

Thursdays at Strange Brew

Austinites,

Please be aware. I’m playing with my ol’ pal Matt the Electrician tomorrow night at Strange Brew in South Austin! It’s Matt’s last Thursday night before he goes on the road. That’s the bad news.

The good news is I’m babysitting 3 Thursday nights for him while he’s away. I’ll play July 4 with my pal and classy crooner Brian Kremer. On July 11, I’ll be joined by the fabulous Raina Rose, still in the glow of her new release, Caldera. Finally, on July 18, I’ll present a special solo performance. It all happens at Strange Brew, and it starts tomorrow night!

Here are the details:

Saturday in La Grange and on Pay-Per-View

Matt the Electrician and Southpaw Jones celebrate 10 years of sharing stages and hauling too many instruments.

We are performing Saturday night at The Bugle Boy in La Grange, Texas. It’s a very cool venue we’ve played before separately but not as a duo. I’ll paste details below.

You may be thinking, “I don’t live anywhere near La Grange.” That depends on how you define “live” and “near,” I suppose. But don’t fret! We will be live-streaming our concert starting at 8p Central Time. Wherever you are in the world, you can attend the show! You can purchase online tickets for $3 any time the day of the show at www.concertwindow.com/thebugleboy. The show will not be taped, but you can watch it live in HD! Payment can be made using PayPal or a credit/debit card. This is a new and very cool service. You can be a part of the show AND the cutting edge of technology.

As always, I invite you to visit my Songs page, where I’ve added some new recordings to my giant table of songs. You can listen all day, over and over, free of charge.

Southpaw Jones with his precious keytar

Southpaw Jones with his precious keytarFriends.

Do you remember me? I hope so.

Please be aware that I am performing at the legendary Cactus Cafe on Thursday, July 12.

I plan to share new sounds, perspectives, and dimensions with all attendees.

Expect keytar, guitar, harmonica, yodeling, and even some rhyming words.

My friend Brian Kremer has recently recovered from hand injury and surgery.

He’ll share the night with me.

He’ll croon; you’ll swoon.

If you’d rather not be a part of local music history, feel free to stay home and drizzle olive oil over stale bread.

20×2 is an ongoing project that exists to showcase the creativity that lurks in each of us. Writers, musicians, filmmakers, web geeks and other bon vivants are asked to take two minutes each to answer the question of the day. The results can be as varied as the emotions and reactions they evoke.

Since the first 20×2 at the South By Southwest interactive conference (SXSW) in 2001, 20×2 has grown to include an ever-expanding pantheon of participants. Show creator Kevin Newsum and collaborative partner Jeff Rider have helped provide the framework for each unique set of performances. Mike Stephens is your host, and Mark Couvillion is technical director. But the real kudos, of course, belong to the many people who have made 20×2 what it is…a reflection of that same dynamic originality that inspires each of us, brought together on one special night…and then repeated in spirit each time we get together.

“FREE SHOW! If you come to one show of mine the rest of the year, please make it this one! I am so excited to release my new CD out into the world and I am excited to be sharing the stage with Southpaw Jones. One of my favorite songwriters. I will be joined by a full band consisting of Andrew Pressman (upright bass), Adam Rader (electric guitar), Derek Hansen (drums). The Cactus Cafe is the premier listening room in Austin, no contest. It is also a very historic stage as many greats have graced it. I am proud of the work we did on this CD. I hope you can join us to celebrate the release of it out into the world.”

The Dick Monologues is a show about everything dick related from the noun definition to the action verb. Conceived and birthed by Spike Gillespie in July 2007 as a one night revenge-as-art performance, the show was so well received that the dick has continued to grow, with monthly performances including Austin’s top writers, performers and singer-songwriters.

Other Info
[Southpaw performs at the end of this event, around 8:45 pm.] Dalton author and humorist Owen Egerton (How Best to Avoid Dying) will emcee the evening featuring six writers reading both newly published and yet to be published works. The musical stylings of alt-country band Jenny and the Corn Ponies will kick off the evening, and Southpaw Jones, whose music is at once hilarious and heartbreaking, will bring the festivities to a close. From Dalton Publishing, Ric Williams shares tales from his forthcoming novel Woman in the Tower, and stuntman Gary Kent entertains with his insider’s view on revolutionary Hollywood, reading from the much-anticipated Shadows & Light. Smith Henderson and Amelia Gray, two writers featured in the Spring 2009 issue of American Short Fiction, offer a taste of delectable, unconventional short fiction. And, breathing poetic air into the evening, Josh Morison and Elyse Fenton of Bat City Review deliver lyrical and contemplative poetry.
