HANG OUT WITH ME TODAY!
Okay… looks like we’re having a wonderfully cool, autumn-like day to hang together at “The Hill” in Central Park. So I’ll take off my shoes, put my guitar on my shoulder again and see where the day goes. My best guess is… it will be another typically amazing day. If you’re gonna be here in town I hope I see you out there. I’ll crank up around 1:00 and play until 5:00 or 6:00… or until I fall over.
NOW THE FIRST SPECIAL THING: ON LONG HOLIDAY WEEKENDS I’VE GOT A LITTLE TRADITION… SOMETHING KINDA CRAZY AND SPECIAL. SO TRY TO AT LEAST BE THERE AROUND 3:00!!!
Here’s a map to show you exactly where!
AND THE SECOND SPECIAL THING: If you live someplace else or just can’t get to the park, you can hang wit us LIVE right here on your computer. But… WE’LL DO IT AT A SPECIAL TIME THIS WEEK. We’ll start the LIVE stream a half hour early at 2:30 (eastern) okay? We’ll do that to make room for the other crazy thing.
Join us if you feel like it. There’s a chat room so you can make requests or just chat with the other people hanging out! All you hafta do is log-in and join us. Go to the Concert Window and set it up right now, okay? (Don’t be spooked by the “credit card” thing. We’ve been doing this for over a year. It’s safe and it really, really does cost you as little or a much as you wanna pay. Whatever you want.)
Then just click on this banner and then log-in a little before…
2:30 eastern — 1:30 central — 12:30 mountain — 11:30am pacific
But before I get to anything else… let’s share this song!!!
I need YOU to share it all across the country and around the world. Share it on Facebook. Share it on Twitter and Instagram. Share it with your neighbors and friends.
Okay images from the summer so far!!!
Here are a few shots from another weekend.
If YOU have any photos or video from this past Saturday, please shoot them to me on Facebook, okay?
MAYBE WE’LL HAFTA REVIVE THIS SONG FOR THE SUMMER!! Remember… this is the first summer of “The Trump Nightmare”.
OH!!! By the way… I am raising money again for the “Permit Fund”. It’s just something I do every year if you feel like being a part of the gig and helping to take care of some of the overhead involved in getting out to Central Park on Saturdays throughout the summer. All of the permit fees are paid for… the Special Events Permits and the Sound Device Permits from the NYPD. But… if you think you would like to help out in that regard, every year I do a little something called the “Permit Fund”. (It’s only there if you can afford to help and if you feel like it.)
I know. I know. For reasonable, sane people this is another tough week. But we’re in it together and we have work to do. Today I’m gonna share a feel good video from our “Year End Concert” at Merkin Concert Hall here in New York City last December.
First, the concert video…
Today, I find myself sitting on top of 3 incredible Creative projects that seem to be exploding into the world as I’m writing this: the new play “The Green Room” – the video for the song “Dreamers Like Me” – and the Creation of a NEW MUSICAL… which is the off-spring of the workshopped musical “Possibility Junkie”.
Here are a few images from the recent concert, captured by our photographers friends David Hayase and Sean Friedman.
I’m still living this Life with open arms and Love, but ZERO tolerance for people who voted for or continue to support the abomination that is Donald J Trump. AI wrote a brand new song that says, “I hope they feel like joining us someday.” But until that day, the rest of us have work to do!!!
There’s always lots of really current and fun stuff on FACEBOOK, too. You can send a friend request and join me over there: https://www.facebook.com/david.thatguitarman
Thanks so much for hangin’ out.
