My good friend, Ian Dickey, with whom I’ve collaborated musically for the past 15 years, is making a feature film, starring his Hungarian shipmate, Sabi. They work together on a sludge tanker in the New York City harbor. The idea is to film a conversation on a long drive from New York to Florida. Simple, right? I hope it will be.
Ian’s started GoFundMe campaign you can contribute to. He’s also enlisted me in the film as an actor, producer and camera man, once it gets rolling. Anyone who contributes will be given a credit as a producer, and a reimbursement of funds once things get off the ground. He’s already made two short films I’ve been impressed with, and I’m sure this one will be just as cool.
We’ll be playing our final show this year at Troost in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Two sets, 8–11. No cover. Troost is at 1011 Manhattan Ave., between Green and Huron Sts., near the Greenpoint Ave. G. Tell your friends. This will be our final show with longtime bass player Greg Stadnyk. Buy him a drink.
