SKETCHY THINGS EVERYONE IGNORES ABOUT CHUCK PROPHET AND STEPHANIE FINCH
Breaking news: CP and the mighty Mission Express will be playing the Starry Plough in Berkeley on New Year's Eve. Get your tickets. It's been known to sell out.
In the near term, we've got a short run of rare Chuck and Stephie acoustic duo shows on the West Coast coming right up where we'll be swapping songs and melding our two songbooks together. That's a fact, Stephie and I are embarking (thesaurus alert!) on another one of our folk rock rampages. There will be no fighting on the dance floor! All the fighting will be onstage. Operators standing by. With every advance ticket sold, we add another set of sit-ups, and push ups to our routine.
And folks, if for some reason I don't make it back? It would be nice for my mom to know that I had some special qualities she might not know about.
Of course I've done a lot of things I'm not proud of, but don't hesitate to fill my online Remembrance Page with "merch table memories." I mean, you don't have to cry or anything but nobody's stopping you either.
Some starter entries:
"He had a capacity for sitting in a van for long stretches. Like no one I've ever seen."
"A wicked parallel parker while buying shoes on his phone."
"Wrote a few decent songs, I suppose. . ."
"I never saw anyone eat an organic donut that fast!"
"He helped me out of a jam, I guess, but he used a little too much force."
Okay, I stole the last one but you get the idea.
And we won't bother you with all the hot links for advance tickets. We know you're smart because you're on this list. But, we do suggest checking the Gigs section on the web site for all confirmed information.
Oh – one more thing: My new disc, which bears the shy, unassuming title BOBBY FULLER DIED FOR YOUR SINS, will be yours for the listening – give or take a quick transaction – on February 10, 2017.
Alright, I gotta go,
