Consider the mosquito! The little insect that wakes you from a deep sleep with a whine, draws blood and leaves you itching. So small, so brave and smashable, yet so influential to the sleeper. Inspirational!
The Mosquito is also an evening of excellent readings and stand-up hosted and curated by Nancy Giles at Dixon Place. I’ve lucked into the role of providing a song or two for the musical diversion. We’ve been doing shows monthly since last fall and we’re back on Monday night. I play songs of my own, though last week I got to rock out on Secret Agent Man, which is never a bad thing. Although The Mosquito (the show) has a metaphorical overlap with the mosquito (the insect) rest assured that no performer will draw actual blood or leave you scratching yourself. The whining and waking from a deep sleep part, let’s table that for now.
Come see! It’s free - though we will pass the hat to defray subway rides and ukulele strings. Bar! Alcohol!
