Rare performance opportunity

Hey there, loyal readers and people searching Google for phrases like "picture of studious girls" and "a editor draws a penis on dog". This Friday night my friend Veronica is throwing a benefit party for a charity fund she's starting in honor of her late sister Sara. The fund will provide grants to assist families in northwest Arkansas affected by cancer.

The benefit is at Hurley's (232 West 48th Street, between Broadway & 8th Avenue) and runs from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. There's a $10 cover and a cash bar, and there will be various performers, including yours truly and the lovely Lorinne. The theme of the evening is "Celebrate Life", so Veronica asked me to prepare a 20 minute set of life-affirming songs, which turns out to be about the amount of time it takes me to play almost all the life-affirming songs I have ever written, and I'm still writing one of them. Not sure what this says about me. Probably not as much as the fact that one of the aforementioned life-affirming songs is about radon and three-bean salad. Anyway, you should come check it out; it'll be fun.
