Do you guys ever dream of living in a town without a basketball team? What if you could read the paper without the headline every day being about the increasing urgency of finding public financing for an arena for the Kings? What else would they find to write about? Real city issues that affect citizens, perhaps? Also, for how long can urgency keep increasing? Doesn't it have to reach a peak at some point? A climax?
Speaking of climax, I highly recommend "In the next room (or the vibrator play)", which is currently running at Capital Stage. It's a good play, very well staged, with a terrific comedic performance by Katie Rubin. It ends with a male nude scene and one woman quite audibly gasped "oh my god" and laughed, and many other people tittered. Grow up people! They kind wrecked the intimate spell that had been created. I bet people in cities with new arenas don't laugh when an actor bares his butt.
I have a couple of pieces in the SNR this week, one about coffee, and one an interview with the owner of Candy Heaven in Old Sac. Both of them are accompanied by great photos.
Knock Knock LP listening party at Phono Select tonight at 7 and then Four Eyes show at Javalounge!! Oh wait, are the Four Eyes still playing?
