i hope to see all pittsburgh area jandek fans at this event. also for those 
of you in the pittsburgh area, listen to my radio show, "living in a moon so 
blue" every tuesday eveing from 12-2am on WRCT (88.3 FM, www.wrct.org). 
every week at 1am i play a jandek album in it's entirety. we have most of 
the older albums on vinyl, so if you've never heard the vinyl mixes of the 
old records this is a great opportunity to hear them. last week i played 
foreign keys!

>I've secured the same room (Forbes & Meyran Kiva Han) for the second
>annual Open Mic Jandek Cover Night, in honor of 11/5, Jandek Day.
>Last year, our list's own John Eastridge turned in some
>heartbreakingly perfect covers of _Later On_-era Janky, while
>Unfinished Symphonies did a gorgeously twisted "Message to the Clerk"
>and "Time and Space," and accordionist/performance artist
>extraordinaire Steve Pellegrino did an accordion-flavored cover of
>"Harmonica."  Your humble correspondent supplied a ukulele cover of
>"Only Lover" and a less-successful indie-rock "When the Telephone
>Melts."  Another list member and a few other stalwarts filled out the
>audience for what was a very, very special night.  Our numbers were
>few, but they were all the right people.
>So what's on the plate for this year?  You tell me.  If you're at all
>convenient to Pittsburgh, drop me a line.  I'll be making an effort
>to publicize this, but the general rule is that anyone can show up
>and play...as long as it's a Jandek cover.  (I'm inclined toward a
>reprise of "Only Lover" and a cover of "Niagara Blues."  Unfinished
>Symphonies has since adopted "Message to the Clerk" as a kind of
>personal existential anthem, so I'd think he'd do that.  But with so
>many songs to choose from, the field's wide open.)
