Even though I had the FLU FROM HELL, Cygnet Fest was great fun. The acts ranged from straight up like, pantomime with a sax accompanist performance art, to Asian cellists, to comedy. The comedian was a very cool girl named Nicole Carey who has only been doing comedy for a few weeks, but is hella funny. I read two poems, Sidewalk Saints, and a new one about my father and Moby Dick, and the audience was extremely receptive. Then I closed with Madame Psychosis and the first real performance of "Sushi Wrap."
LoWreck and I are recording another rap this afternoon (hipster-hop -- it's gonna be big, yo). My voice is a little hoarse but I'm gonna make it work.
