KINKY TO REVISIT SCENES OF HIS CRIMES HEADING EAST BY MIDWEST
This spring, starting April 27 in Kansas City, Missouri, Kinky Friedman, author, musician, politician, and self-proclaimed Governor of the Heart of Texas, will be performing dates throughout the Midwest and East Coast as part of his "Springtime for Kinky" Tour of 2011. Often returning to places he has not visited in two decades, the Kinkster will appear solo (primarily) and promote his most recent books, What Would Kinky Do? and Heroes of a Texas Childhood. There will be a book signing at each venue.
Playing the songs for which he is best known, such as "They Ain't Making Jews Like Jesus Anymore" and "Sold American," reading passages from his books, and carrying on his hilarious running commentary on the state of the union, Kinky, the prodigal son of Texas, will, indeed, return to the scenes of his crimes of years gone by.
