Announcing The Do it Auf Deutsch Tour

// September 2nd, 2010 // Cool Stuff, Music, News, Performances, Travel

I’ve been abroad so long I’m afraid I’ve neglected my North American lovelies – so I’m hitting the road!

From September through November, I’ll be driving all over this great land, from coast to coast, to play for you in venues, coffee shops, bookstores, cafés, art collectives, basements and living rooms.

I’ve booked part of this beast, but there is much that remains to be confirmed. Anyone enthusiastic enough to organize a concert in their town/college/home, put me and my harp up for the night, or help with promotion will have my everlasting adoration. Also, I make excellent gratitude-omelettes.

Here’s my itinerary (details for confirmed dates are under the SHOWS tab):

**UPDATE! Due to extenuating personal circumstances, I will NOT be hosting the SongCircle showcase on November 17th, but Suzie Brown will be covering for me and the show is definitely still on. I’ll return to host the next showcase on January 12th**

As you can see, there is much of my itinerary that is still, shall we say, malleable? Take a look at the accompanying Google Maps and if you’ve got an idea that fits the general trajectory, I’d love to discuss it! Please share this with your friends and family and help spread the word. This is an independent, grassroots, fan-fueled (ad)venture, and I can’t do it without you.

fill my heart, fill my gas tank, fill my belly… I’ll see you on the road!


* *Europe! I’m coming for you in the Spring, darling. I plan to pass some of those long hours on the highway this fall spinning German tapes and trying to learn the language of Rilke and Marlene Dietrech (hence the tour title). Quiz me when I’m back!

    Hey you! It’s Jill Davis, your friendly neighborhood BMS Bookstore Manager. Long time no speak!

    I just wanted to drop a line to let you know that I am living in Chicago now, and so if you need crash space while you are out here in November, I can happily provide it and delicious meals. I’m looking forward to the show–I never got the chance to see you perform while we were at school–and I’m going to invite as many people as I can. I’d love to post flyers in Starbucks and the local, artsy coffee houses if you have any you want to pop along.

    I’ve been listening to your music at work all day, and it really brightened a gloomy afternoon. :) Take care!
