House Filk Preceeded By Special Concert  
ladyat and I have a tradition of hosting a house filk (music party for you non-filkers on my flist) on the Saturday in April closest to our son Robert's birthday. This year, the weekend of the 17th is out because of an Irish language immersion weekend ladyat is going to. That means the date is the 24th.

However, we're doing something different. At the local UU Church Coffeehouse (which is about 4 blocks away), Lou and Peter Berryman will be playing that night, from 7pm to probably about 9 or so, for $10.

Since we figure many (if not all) of the people who normally attend are fans of the Berrymans (or at least of their music - see "Your State's Name Here" or "Chat With Your Mother"), we thought we'd do this more like a concert night with a filk afterward.

We'll meet at our place about 6, as usual, and then about 6:30 we'll wander over to the concert. After it is over we'll head back home and break out the instruments.

Sound good?

It sounds quite good; hopefully nobody else is going to come up with something else I need to do that day.

I've had the pleasure of seeing Lou and Peter live once. They're a hoot, and in the brief time I had to talk to them, they seem like nice folks.

Sounds great--can I come too?

You gonna invite them to the party?

So somebody can sing "Your God's Name Here", and the one where the F-word is "filk" to them?

I've never seen Lou and Peter, but I particularly remember SMac and Franklin miming the clown shtick while Puzzlebox were Painting the Living Room at FilkCONtinental.

We can't make it to IN, but following the link to the Berrymans' site I've discovered they're doing a house concert near us in MD next weekend. So assuming there are still seats left -- SCORE!

We haven't seen Lou and Peter in a while; we've been out of town or otherwise busy the last couple of times they've rambled through.

I just might be able to attend this one! Please send directions via email or LJ message.
