No notice, I know. Here's the skinny:
Sunday, October 7, Les Barker, a comic poet from Manchester, England, will be performing at a house concert in NE Portland! Stephen Wright meets Monty Python...

"Each night, she's on the balcony;
He loves her from afar;
His soft, sad eyes are hypnotised;
She shines down like a star.
His heart will break for ever;
His kind can't have affairs;
For dachsunds with erections
Can't climb stairs."

Les also is a renowned writer of serious and parody songs, recorded by such luminaries of the British Folk Scene as Martin and Eliza Carthy, June Tabor, Martin Simpson and more. Sunday he'll be reading from his vast repertoire of poems, which include "An Infinite Number Of Occasional Tables," "Deja Vu," and "My Snails Have Not Yet Arrived." Large audiences at folk festivals groan along on the refrains...

Cost is $10. E-mail here or call 503-284-0650 please to RSVP. Seating at 7pm. Show starts at 7:30. For more info on Les, visit his page on the Waterbug website: http://www.waterbug.com/barker.html 2702 NE 35th Place (at Knott)...

Not above doing our own promo are we, hey, Les from Manchester, rambling toward Seattle?
It was a delightful evening, and I did laugh myself silly, tho I laughed the hardest when-- as you led us inexorably toward that much anticipated punchline in Robert the Phoenix -that woman asked you for her ten dollar admission fee back.
You could post the rest of your gigs here too, if you've a mind, or perhaps just an advert for a new agent.
Blessings,
Barbara

I suppose it's too much to hope that he'll still be in Seattle when I'm there the weekend of November 10th. Sigh.... And I suppose a house concert on the Big Island of Hawaii -- or even the fleshpots of Honolulu -- is out of the question.

Aloha,
Mark
