The Past Few Days Or So In Review

The past few days have been action-packed and just really fun and magical in general. The mayhem started on Wednesday night when my rock band Valley Lodge showed up at Sin-e and started rocking people so much it wasn’t even f#$king funny. It wasn’t as crowded as I would have liked but the people that were there were more than rock capable and show turned out to be pretty life-altering for all in attendance anyway. John and I each had a little guitar cord trouble for some reason and Rob hit his rack tom (this is a drum) so hard it fell over at one point (which was actually pretty cool now that I think about it), but other than that we pretty much rifled through the hits and had a good time rocking people. And then we went home.

The excitement continued on Thursday, when my exciting nightclub act, the Dave Hill Explosion, totally exploded all over the place at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre, which is located right here in town. As mentioned previously, my guest for this show was my close personal friend Rufus Wainwright. Given the pandemonium that sets in when Rufus and I show up at the same place at the same time, the show was totally sold out. Rufus, as always, was amazing. He performed his hit song “Gay Messiah” and then sat down with me and we talked about all sorts of stuff. He was hilarious and should totally have his own talk show or something. There are a couple pictures from the show and also from Rufus’ Beacon Theater shows here. Check that sh*t out.

I have spent the last couple days sleeping and eating stuff. Yesterday, I went to watch my sister Miriam run in the New York Marathon. Unfortunately for me but good for her, she was ahead of her predicted pace and I ended up not seeing her in the pack of sweaty marathon running-type people at the corner of Bedford and Myrtle Avenues in Brooklyn where I stood and yelled and clapped for a few minutes before figuring out that Miriam had been running like the wind and was a few miles past me by now (I thought it would be good to use a run-on sentence when talking about my marathon-watching experience. Get it?)

As far as the next few days go, I plan to sleep and eat some more and then maybe figure out what to do with this hair of mine. This Thursday, November 10 at 7pm, the Dave Hill Explosion will be exploding again all over the place. If you live in New York City, you should totally come. My guest is going to be Alicia Goranson from the hit TV series “Roseanne.” She is also in a new movie called “Love, Ludlow.” There will also be snacks and beverages for sale. Reserve tickets here.
