Regular readers of this site will have noticed a precipitous drop-off in posts over the last few weeks. This has been due to the monster that ate my life: “How to Survive the Apocalypse,” the Burning Man-inspired rock opera I wrote and conceived with the amazing musician and composer Mark Nichols and the directorial mastermind Christopher Fülling-McCall, veteran director of most of Pepe Ozan’s Burning Man operas of yore.

The show, which I also perform in as the bullhorn-wielding wiseacre Bulldada, goes up Friday night for a limited run in San Francisco. Even before the show has opened, we are already completely sold out. I am excited and exhausted and need to take a nap. Hopefully we will eventually bring “How to Survive the Apocalypse” to a vacant lot or derelict warehouse near you, but in the meantime you can listen to the demo or listen to Mark Nichols and I discuss the show (and present some more recent tracks) with Jane Heaven, who hosts KPFA’s Sunday Night Live.
