Michael Perry & the Long Beds

Thurs, Nov 5, 7:30pm

Join Michael Perry and his band the Long Beds for a night of music punctuated by stories (some new and some “classic”). Band member Billy Krause was the first to encourage Perry to perform the songs he’d composed in between writing bestselling books; as Perry says about that inaugural concert, “I ain’t sayin’ I was nervous, but I ripped out a 60-minute set in 32 minutes flat!” The New York Times bestselling author, humorist, and radio show host from New Auburn, Wisconsin has since become more relaxed singing onstage. Perry’s bestselling memoirs include Population 485, Truck: A Love StoryCoop, and Visiting Tom. His first book for young readers, The Scavengers, was published in 2014 and first novel for adult readers, The Jesus Cow, debuted in May of 2015He hosts the nationally-syndicated “Tent Show Radio,” performs widely as a humorist, and tours with the Long Beds, a roughneck folk group that honors the spirit of folks like John Prine, Waylon Jennings, and James McMurtry.
