It's not *quite* that time of year again, but considering that I've 
lined up a friendly, enthusiastic venue, I can give people plenty of 
advance notice, should anyone be anywhere near Pittsburgh on Wednesday, 
November 5.

As ever, the guidelines are simple: anyone can come and play, but you 
have to cover a Jandek tune.  *Any* style, genre, instrumentation, or 
approach is welcome.  Aesthetic risk-taking is actively encouraged. 
(Hey, last year I did a no-input all-feedback version of "Down in a 
Mirror.")  Unlike previous years, however, we have room for a drum kit. 
Anyone up for "John Plays Drums"?

This year, we're hosting the evening at Your Inner Vagabond 
(http://www.yourinnervagabond.com/), a very comfortable coffeehouse and 
world lounge in the happening Pittsburgh neighborhood of Lawrenceville. 
     Decor is very Middle Eastern--carpets, pillows, low tables...the 
perfect setting for someone to tackle "Khartoum," for instance.  YIV 
serves a wide variety of delicious teas (iced and hot) and often 
astonishing Middle Eastern and Subcontinental desserts, as well as 
coffee.  While no alcohol is served, you can BYOB.

So start planning now, folks!  Wednesday, November 5, 2008, 8pm-ish.  No 
cover charge, but order something to eat or drink to show some support 
for the space.  Your Inner Vagabond is at 4130 Butler St., Pittsburgh 
PA, 15201.
