Some people really understand how to communicate with humor. I hope to someday nail it like Jim, announcing his upcoming residency at the Living Room in NYC. Behold.
Katie Couric asked me last week if a Fall residency at the Living Room was really the best thing for the country. I’ll tell you what I told her:
“That’s why I say I like every music-lover I’m speaking with we’re ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the performer looking to residency. But ultimately what the residency does is help those who are concerned about the tour support reform that is needed to help shore up my economy. Helping the . . . it’s gotta be all about gig creation too, shoring up my economy and putting it back on the right track. So tour support reform and reducing tour support and reigning in spending has got to accompany tour support reductions and tour support relief for labels and trio gigs - we have got to see trio gigs as opportunity not as competitive scary thing but 1 in 3 musicians not being paid in the performing sector today we’ve got to look at that as more opportunity. All those things under the umbrella of gig creation. This residency is a part of that.”
