Rodeo Bar is closing and I’m

July 21st, 2014

flower shot looking downgonna be doing one of the last shows there! Ever.

It’s really f’ing sad to me, they’re ripping the pretty guts out of this city, like a nice city mouth that had wonderful, perfectly pretty teeth in it and they’re yanking ‘em all out with pliers and replacing ‘em all with ugly grey horse teeth (sorry for the clumsy metaphor, but I’m very upset. Also sorry to all horses, some of whom have amazing teeth).

I did shows at this place for more than 20 years and I loved it and it felt like home and not at all like anything else in NYC. Please come out and say good-night, sleep tight dear with me to this dearly departing institution?

The show is this Wednesday, July 23, it’s Free as always (and how rare is that) and we’ll cry tears of blood to drip down our silly holy saint faces as we mourn one more piece of our disappearing metropolis.
