Cabinet of Two Readings and Many Songs: Beware the Upsides of March!
You can’t stop the readings: nobody can stop the readings! Mr Stace performs his classic "Makin’ Love to Bob Dylan”. Bob’s Burger’s own Eugene Mirman takes center-stage to tickle the City Winery’s collective funny bone, before Cabinet favourite Kristin Hersh sets about “Krait” from Crooked and Throwing Muses classic “Devil’s Roof”. Siri Hustvedt illuminates us with a reading from her transcendent novel "The Blazing World", before the audience thrills to Chicago’s own Robbie Fulks who brings the show to a frenetic climax with Jerry Reed’s "Guitar Man”. (The house band reveal that they have mistakenly learned Bread’s song of the same name. A brief argument ensues.) The assembled company take the stage for the traditional processional hymn “Religious Experience.”
