If you’re in the Twin Cities on October 9th, I hope you’ll stop by Grumpy’s Northeast for a special Happy Hour presented by the Minneapolis Association of Base Ball Enthusiasts. Dmitry Samarov, an exceedingly talented painter and writer, will read from his new book, Where To?: A Hack Memoir at 5:45 pm. His books and original paintings will be available for purchase, and there’ll be free food and drink specials. Stick around after the reading to watch some MLB playoff action with us.
From his publisher, Curbside Splendor: Dmitry Samarov was born in Moscow, USSR, in 1970. He immigrated to the United States with his family in 1978. He got in trouble in first grade for doodling on his Lenin Red Star pin and hasn’t stopped doodling since. After a false start at Parsons School of Design in New York, he graduated with a BFA in painting and printmaking from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1993. Upon graduation he promptly began driving a cab—first in Boston, then after a time, in Chicago. 
From TS Flynn (aka mightyflynn): Dmitry is a sharp observer whose visual and written art covers topics as varied and connected as baseball, bars, music, cabs, and the human condition. I’ve enjoyed his work since I first ran across it on Tumblr four years ago. He’s been featured often on It’s a long season, and he illustrated a piece I wrote about Paul Konerko for The Classical. Check out more of his art and writing at dmitrysamarov.com.

We saw Alejandro Escovedo at Knuckleheads last night, and it was a great show. His cover of Neil Young’s “Like A Hurricane” was stunning, as was his solo acoustic version of “Sister Lost Soul” - that one completely silenced the place, as we all watched slack-jawed. “Always A Friend” was also a highlight. If you were there, you know what I’m talking about. If you weren’t, you can have a little “Like A Hurricane” from the last time Alejandro played Knuckleheads, just last summer. This performance features David Hidalgo of Los Lobos standing in on guitar.
