LITTLE JACK MELODY AND HIS YOUNG TURKS FACE THE REALITY OF ANOTHER LJM BIRTHDAY, CELEBRATING IN THE ONLY WAY THEY CAN THINK OF, W/ A GIG AT DAN'S SILVERLEAF, ALTHOUGH IT'S A BELATED ONE SINCE THE CALENDARS DIDN'T ALIGN!
SUNDAY!, SUNDAY!, SUNDAY! , JULY 17, EARLY SHOW, 4:00 PM!

Denton, TX, 7/9/22
It's so terrible bad hot today. Right. I know. Texas in the summer. What did you expect. Yes yes yes. But still.

(Offstage: Start again!)

It's so terrible bad hot out there. Today. The old Melodic dog, Gauntlet, continues to sleep in late on his dog bed, (it's about 3:45 pm as we speak), and maybe he will wake up by 4:00. Or maybe not—he might go even later than that, because he can. (The same reason a dog will do anything, if you catch my meaning.)

And then this is what will happen, when he wakes up. He'll say to me, (in his way), (he and I have an understanding), Hey listen, man, I'm up now, and I'd like to have a couple of hits of those doggy glucosamine treats for breakfast before I go out in the backyard, right? Yes, two hits, and then I will want to go on a really short walk, right,? because as you were saying 'it's terrible bad hot out there.'

And because he's always right, and not one to pull his punches, we will go—I will take him on a very short walk. Yesterday, when it was one degree cooler than today's inferno temps, these were his walking dictates to me, The Leashman:

Exit backyard through driveway gate, head east down driveway to front yard, head south across front yard until hedge is reached, cross behind hedge because I think I smell a delectably unspeakable left-by-cat treat buried in the dirt, which I am very interested in snarfing down, then turn back west, and return to backyard through front yard gate. Then unleash me, Leashman, so I can go roll luxuriously in the remains of that St. Augustine over there. Oh that feels good. I can't even tell you.

Yes, that is a direct transcription, verbatim. I really know this guy.

Okay, sorry about all that bow wow, and that's not really what I came to talk about, which is actually this big wow:

LITTLE JACK MELODY'S BY-NOW ANNUAL BIRTHDAY GIG

STARRING LITTLE JACK MELODY AND HIS YOUNG TURKS SUNDAY, JULY 17, 2022

4:00 PM EARLY SHOW
DAN'S SILVERLEAF, DENTON, TX


Has it really been a year? Scheisse, I guess it has. Unbelievable, but inescapable, in the fullness of time, so to say. Well, we've got to do it. And we really do hope that you'll be there to do it with us, you the audience. We'll all be in person, indoors, with LJM/et al on the fullness of the Dan's Silverleaf stage, fulsome, full stop.

For this happy event, you can expect to see:

LITTLE JACK MELODY- singing, tenor banjo, cornet, talking too much probably
BRAD WILLIAMS- harmonium, piano
DAVE MONSCH- reeds
NORM BERGERON- trap kit
CARL KLEINSTEUBER- tuba

And we'll/they'll all be playing at capacity, drawing upon every spiraled helix of their respective talents. And we're/they're all one-year better than they were this time last year. I did the math already, innit!

See you soon! Happy birthday gig to me! We hope you'll join us or what!

Until then,

Yours etc.,

LITTLE JACK MELODY
(and his Young Turks),
(and Gauntlet the Melodic dog),
DENTON, TEXAS
