Not sure when I got up; took it slow. Read 50 p. of Johnson on privilege; curious Monopoly metaphor. Some mundane tasks; found clip lights (but forgot to take fresh batteries later). Coffee at the Mill in LIC, read B&S memoir on the way worked on ending of LR about 90 min. It counts; I think/hope I'm within a few days here. Listened to 1st 1/2 of the Franz Ferdinand/Sparks album on the way downtown. There are some throwaways, but great lines, and I like the spirit of invention, and how many genres the Maels control. Zinc Bar at 3; soundchecked and learned Drew's conduction system with the drummer, Ihran, and the bari sax player, Alex, then did the gig. Came off better than I might have thought; good house, Sharon Mesmer and Bruce Andrews were both apposite, reasonably performative readers, Drew's decisions left space. Hard to talk about the musical interaction itself, but a good first go. People seemed to like it. Paid $60, to my surprise. Ended a little late to rush off to the Kitchen for Mayo Thompson's performance, sadly. Split a pizza at Arturo's w/ Drew, Katy, and their friend Ron (who saw the Huskers and Minutemen at UCLA in Ackerman Hall in 1986), then went to James Sherry's party for a while, chatted with Nada, Joanna Furman, Shanna Compton, Adam Fitzgerald, Bruce & Sally. Rest of FFS on the way home, w/ a couple of the strongest songs, "Collaborations Don't Work" and "A Violent Death": "Strangers lean over. Passengers on the same train." Read Taggart in bed.
