William Shunn at HiFi Bar, October 11, 2015
You probably missed my spoken-word performance this past Sunday night at HiFi Bar, the first of a handful of events celebrating the forthcoming release of my memoir, The Accidental Terrorist: Confessions of a Reluctant Missionary. The set combined excerpts from the book with original poetry, and featured musical backing by the very capable Daniel Geoghegan on drums and Jon Pope on bass.

We had a terrific time doing it. Happily, my friend Jeff Lang shot video, so you can hear what we sounded like. Here, for example, is our rendition of an old poem of mine called "Coney Island Lifeguard Blues":

And if you want to hear more, Jeff has also posted video of the full 42-minute set. Check it out.

Chicago, I hope to see you on November 3rd when I read at Tuesday Funk. I won't have the band with me, but I will have the book.
