Get Marian Call in your town!

By Phil Plait | August 8, 2010 7:08 am

My friend, the geek-chanteuse Marian Call, is touring the United States, playing smaller venues in all the Lower 48 (and Hawaii!). I heard her sing in Boulder where she was incredible as always, and also at w00tstock, where a whole passel of folks were enthralled.

If you need a sample of her stuff, check out this, or this, or even this, where I try to describe her style.

She’s seeking venues right now, and below is a list of places and times for her (her final travel schedule is online at her site). If you live in one of these places and want her to come to your local coffee shop, house concert, or what-have-you (she’s specifically looking for places that don’t usually host such an event), contact her! You can find her through her website or on Twitter.

St. Louis, MO Aug. 26
Fayetteville or Little Rock AR Aug. 27
New Orleans and greater Louisiana Aug. 28-30
Mississippi Aug. 31
Alabama Sept. 1-2
Bellingham, WA Sept. 12
Hawai’i — Oahu, Maui, and Kauai Dec. 13-21

She’s also playing a few places on the west coast:

    Great singer. Loved her work esp. “Into the Black”. Beautiful. :-)

    Wish I could get her to come to my town but I’m guessing that this is not going to be an intercontinental tour somehow. Still I sure hope she does come to Australia & Adelaide in particular one day .. :-)

  2. October looks like a great month to see her! :)

  3. Jearley

    Southern Oregon does not seem to be on her tour, but I sent a shout out to my SF and SCA buddies in Seattle just now, so I hope they get a chance to see and listen to her.

  4. Good to see Veronica here.

    Don’t forget she’s also playing the Dragon*Con Fark/Reddit Party/Gathering Saturday Sept 4th at 1p in the Hilton. Everybody is welcome. Since its in the main lobby area of the Hilton no D*C badge is required. More details here:

    NOLA on the 28th! Whoo!
    Wait.. OH NOES- I’m performing in Evita that weekend! Grrr.
    But I will pass the word along!

  7. Harry Fiasco

    I live in Bellingham, WA, maybe I’ll see the show. But I should note, I do think, or rather, know with a great deal of certainty, that Bellingham, WA is, in fact, part of the west coast…

  8. Sent an email with some Charlottesville suggestions! *hope hope hope*
