Sam Amidon at LPR in October (more by Toby Tenebaum)
Sam Amidon

Sam Amidon will head out on an international tour in 2012, but before he does, he'll wrap up 2011 with "Sam Amidon's End Of Year Contemplation through Banjosong" in NYC at Rockwood Music Hall on December 28. Regarding the show, Sam says:

While I cannot even dare hope to match the fine calibration of Kirsten Dunst's recent acting performances (most notably Marie Antoinette, Wimbledon, and Melancholia), I do wish that as 2011 draws to a close we can sing a few murder ballads and old love songs together and maybe it will snow.

Tickets are on sale now. The show is 21+ and there is a one drink minimum.

Sam also recently released a book, Notes On The Twitterographer: Collected Tweets 2009-2011, which will be available at his shows and at his website.
