Yes, The Kinkster is on the move again as the singer / author / political commentator / former Texas gubernatorial candidate lays down a routing beginning in Massachusetts in early June and includes stops in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Quebec and Ontario.
Along with performing his epic songs such as “Ol’ Ben Lucas,” “Sold American” and “They Ain’t Makin’ Jews Like Jesus Anymore” the self-styled Jewish Troubadour has something to sell, namely his latest book that he co-authored with Billy Bob Thornton titled “The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full Of Ghosts.” Detailing the life and times of the actor / singer, the book even contains a forward from Thornton’s ex – Angelina Jolie.
Friedman also has a new DVD that brings his appearance on “Austin City Limits” to the masses. It has been said that his performance on the music television show was the only “ACL” that didn’t air because of content, but now that it’s on DVD everyone can have the opportunity to be entertained and/or offended.
The new dates begin with a show in Northampton, Mass., at the Iron Horse June 6. Stops include New York City’s Highline Ballroom June 9; Philadelphia at World Café Live June 15; Piermont, N.Y., at The Turning Point June 17; Asbury Park, N.J., at The Saint June 21; Montreal, Quebec, at Petit Campus June 30 and Evanston, Ill., at SPACE July 1.
