FOUND Magazine's Denim and Diamonds Tour
Two whole years. It blows my mind, but that's about how long ago I started taking this Heavy In The Streets thing seriously. I had no idea what I was doing when I started and no real contacts to interview. All I had was unemployment, a summer of uncertainty looming ahead of me, and a burning desire to write some shit.
One of the first people I got in touch with who was gracious enough to do an interview for HITS was my dude Davy Rothbart. Davy is without question one of the friendliest dudes you will ever encounter. He has a gigantic heart, a one of a kind imagination, and immediately makes you feel like a valued friend of his. I am very proud of the interview we did together and think it ranks highly on my interview list.

Davy is now touring the country with his bro Peter to celebrate the release of the new Found book Requiem for a Paper Bag.
I am very excited to say that my name is included in the thank you section of this book. That is without question one of the great honors I've experienced as a writer and I can't thank Davy enough for his continued friendship and support.
I was fortunate enough to catch the duo last Monday at The Rendezvous in Turners Falls, MA, where they absolutely brought the house down. Davy has a great stage presence and his brother Peter helps to provide some unforgettable found inspired tunes as an added bonus. I HIGHLY recommend going to see these guys if they are coming to a venue near you. To check their tour schedule, click here.
