Richard Buckner wants to play in your living room

Richard Buckner wants to play in your living room

Richard Buckner will be heading to the west coast early next year in support of Surrounded, and he wants to play at your house! 


So, beginning in late January 2014, I'll be traveling throughout Washington, Oregon, California and Arizona with my acoustic guitar, hollering & strumming into thin air to audiences weary of the intimate setting of the rock bar-ambienced dins of out-of-time cocktail-shaker-maracas, bachelorette parties and bar-side conversations about "who's-that-guy-onstage-again?" and "Ten-bucks-to-get-in-and-it's-just-a-bunch-of-dudes-shushing-me-when-I-try-and-tell-you-about-my-new-hilarious-fantasy-football-team-name!".  In between the shows, I'll also be working on my latest collection of run-on sentences (containing parenthesis so I can cram in more unnecessarily-tangented details) featuring nouns disguised as adjectives.  I like using determiners as well, but my therapist thinks that it adds to my issues (with over-explaining).
