Rovics from the Road
by David Rovics
Hi folks; thought I'd mention a few things...  First of all, for those of you on the west coast of the US or Canada, over the next month I'll be doing shows in California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia.  (I managed to get into Canada for a wonderful gig in Hamilton, Ontario last week, with a proper work permit, and hopefully will be able to continue to manage that feat...) 

Bjorn-Magne has recently finished doing a fabulous animation to my song, "Punk Rock Baby."  You can see that and all of Bjorn-Magne's other animations to my songs at http://www.youtube.com/user/Khezerghul
 
 
[Punk Ain't Dead, it Just Smells that Way!]
 
 
 


 
I'd like to particularly encourage folks to check the animations out there on that YouTube site because I think if more people view those videos that'll give 'em more visibility somehow or other...  And if you really want to assist in my efforts to corrupt the youth, you could tell someone about these animations who you may know who's active with a PTA, or works in some capacity at an elementary school or library...  That's where the children's gigs are, I hear...

Incidentally, eventually the music for these animations and other songs I've got in the kids' section of my website will have a great band backing me up, so these particular solo guitar versions will soon be collector's items, never to be seen again on the web...

For those of you poking around on the web with nothing better to do, check out http://www.myspace.com/davidrovics.  First of all, my friend John picks out the songs of mine that appear there, and the selection currently there does a fine job of reflecting my views on the current electoral process underway.  (Particularly "Election" and "Whoever Wins In November.")  Then scroll down to the "comments" section, and check out videos from Sacred Oath's new CD, fantastic metal band from Connecticut.  And a bit further you can check out a local FOX affiliate's reportage on the controversy surrounding the construction of the I-69 "NAFTA Highway" in Indiana, during my recent visit there.  And maybe you'll get a chuckle from my blog entry there on MySpace, Dinner at the Chaos Cafe.
 
I'll be opening for a band here in Portland next week and doing a benefit for IVAW later in the month, doing a show at UC Davis and possibly Nevada City later in the month, a show in Twisp, Washington with the fabulous Danbert Nobacon at the end of the month, and shows in Victoria and Vancouver, BC in early June.  Mid-June I'll be doing a show for kids and one for grownups in Danbury, Connecticut.  Details on all that and other things that may hopefully come up along the way right there on the main page at http://www.davidrovics.com.

OK, that's all for now...  Hope to see you on the road, in the streets, and on the swingsets!
