A Letter from Dirk

A CHANGE OF CALIFORNIA VENUES

    We are now playing at The Yankee Clipper in San Francisco Friday, February 12th instead of the previously advertised gig in Crockett.  Please check below for details.
    The show in Sausalito is special because it will be the only gig we’ll be playing with the full band as Tim “feel” Seifert, our sensitive and always amicable drummer man is going to play that night.
    The Blackwater Café gig in Stockton will be special because it’s The Blackwater and those gigs are always great, always friendly and intimate. It’s my home club.
    These gigs are unique in that we’re playing to get in shape for “The 30 Anniversary of the Release of the THUG OF LOVE (Italian) Tour”.  So, we will positively be playing every song from that album at each show. Are you listening Mr. Wallace?
    I was able to get a few copies of my new “Complete Lyrics of Yours Truly” book that’s been published in Italy and I’ll sell them until they run out (which won’t take long ‘cuz I wasn’t able to get many over here at the exorbitant Italian mailing rates). Warning: everything but the lyrics is in Italian and they’ll be kind of expensive because they cost so much to ship.  Anyhow, inside each book is a special CD that was recorded one hot, buggy night in at Natural Heads Quarter (sic) a studio in Ferrara, Italy. The lead guitarist for the Italian band I front every summer, Bob Formigniani, and I recorded a bunch of non-original songs that have been important to me in my musical life. The only original song on the CD is Petulia’s Hair which was the first song of any account I’d ever written. I think I was about 15 years old and it’s good to have it out now. Thank you Roberto Ronchi for making this book happen.
     If you’re not from California, I’m hoping to see you some day on or near your own turf as I’m making efforts to branch out and play more places these days. Peace and Prosperity to all y’all

Love,
Dirk
