In April, I had my official book launch in NYC at Saint Vitus Bar, which was great. I had invited three bands and it was essentially a live performance with a bit of talk from me. Books were sold, drinks were well, drank, people were extremely impressed by the talented performers (and WAYDH interviewees) Tamar-Kali, Kudisan Kai and MilitiA, and it was a helluva lot of fun.
Over a year ago, I had dreamed about doing this type of event in as many cities as I could in 2013, as providing a platform to showcase young musical artists was really important to me. However, some unforseen events earlier this year caused me to temporarily put that idea on ice, but What Are You Doing Here? is doing well, and because this fall I have a number of already scheduled speaking engagements, I decided to revisit my dream and (hopefully) add a few more events to my schedule.
But I'm going to need your help. I need some musical talent!
