David Sedaris at The Egg

david sedarisThe Egg announced today that David Sedaris will be appearing there April 11 -- yep, as in 2013. Tickets go on sale September 7. They're $38.50 and $48.50.

Sure, this is like forever into the future. But if Sedaris' earlier appearances here are any indication, there's a good chance the show will sell out. Something to keep in mind if you think you might want to go.

If you've never seen Sedaris in in a live performance, (in our experience) it goes something like this: he reads a bit, he talks a bit, reads a little bit more, talks some more, people laugh -- sometimes not exactly sure of where they should. In other words, it's pretty much like a David Sedaris story.

(By the way: Sedaris has already appeared at the Palace and Proctors in the past. The Egg gives him a Capital Region hat trick. Congratulations, sir. Update: Both Eric and KJS alert us that Sedaris has already appeared at the The Egg. So he's starting on Capital Region hat trick #2.)

On the subject of performances next year: The Egg also announced that jazz vocalist/composer Kurt Elling will be performing there March 24. Ticket also go on sale next Friday. They're $29.50.

He's appeared at The Egg before- I remember seeing him there not all that long after 9-11. Security was still very heavy at the plaza.

Yeah - he was at the Egg many years ago. That was the first time I had ever seen him, and when he came out on stage I realized that I had come up in the elevator with him without knowing who he was.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.
