Jon Brion & Fiona Apple playing benefits for Gungi
I’m writing to put word out that I am doing two shows at Largo on March 5th & 9th,for my wonderful friend,Gungi.
If you happened to have gone to any of my shows,this past year,and if you liked the way it sounded–that’s thanks to Gungi.He does a wonderful job,yes he does–but that is not why I love him.Gungi is one of those people that you just love,really actually LOVE,within five minutes of meeting him.As you may know,I am a girl prone to low-days.I don’t know how many times I got to soundcheck,in a grumpy nasty,teary rut,and when I saw Gungi,all nearly seven feet of him,across the empty theatre,and we waved to eachother and he asked me how I was,I immediately got a jolt of life.It is nearly impossible to be in a bad mood around Gungi,even for me.—His face is a pep-talk!–His eyes are HUGS!He’s like some mystical,benevolent Giant,right out of a fairytale….Well,I knew when I started writing this, that I wouldn’t be able to really say this right,but here’s the thing.He’s my friend.I love him.He’s helped me a lot when I have been in trouble.Now,he is in trouble,and I want to help him.To get his story,please visit www.friendsofgungi.com. If you can come to either of the shows at Largo,they should be pretty fun–Jon Brion,Dave palmer,David Garza,The Watkins(of Nickel Creek),and more…and if you don’t come,then maybe you’d like to donate 5 bucks,or something–whatever you decide,I thank you,for being there for me,for giving a damn,and for making noise and for listening.
with so much love,
