All right, here’s why, if you need a reason to see Robbie Fulks on Whad’ya Know at the High Noon on Saturday, December 3, I don’t mean the above picture, yes the rugged good looks make for a surprisingly handsome man, I mean the song America is a Difficult Religion from Robbie’s new one on Bloodshot Records, Upland Stories:
Now don’t you feel a little silly you haven’t got your ticket yet for Robbie Fulks on Whad’ya Know @ High Noon at http: //www.high-noon.com/upcoming/ ?
You can come to the door as well–it’s located at the tops of the steps at 701 E Washington Ave, Madison.
Not just the voice, not just the songs, not just what he does to that guitar, not just the height of the man–
Just Robbie Fulks!
Ethan and the Fireflies–no, not another annoying band name, but the latest Whad’ya Know on iTunes–
The fireflies were planned–who knew that fireflies & humans had a common ancestor only 800 million years ago?
Little humans who came in with the bananas!
But Ethan, and his mom by proxy, just took over the show. What can you do–it’s whad’ya know!
Come become Whad’ya Know–on iTunes!
Say your dad carved the bird wearing a Make America Great Again cap while your mom sobbed in the kitchen?
Or you made the mistake of noting how inappropriate the Cowboys playing the Redskins on Thanksgiving was to your father-in-law?
Say you did not enjoy a Jenni-O boneless turkey breast with 18% unknown fluids followed by a walk to not enjoy xmas lights on empty neighborhood houses?
Say you went to Black Friday Mass to get a deal on forgiveness?
Whad’ya Know Feels You.
At Whad’ya Know we are giving love in a family dose.
(Cue Sister Sledge)
And your Family awaits you on Saturday, November 26, at the High Noon Saloon, 701 E Madison Ave, Madison, a good 3 hours closer (for most families, check AAA for yours) than going home to Peoria.
Festivities start at noon only drag on til 2, with our special guest Andy ‘Mort the Mortician’ Kindler, jazz from John & Jeff, insights from Stephanie Lee, and me, I’m Michael Feldman.
Did I mention quizzes you can’t help but win? Finger unicorn prizes to break the holiday spell?
Whad’ya Know at the High Noon, this Saturday, at noon.
Be there, or be where you are, and watch at https://www.youtube.com/user/WhadYaTube
We’ll be glad you did :>)}
Happy Thanksgiving All, Y’all!
A little Thanksgiving Prayer for any of you wondering about the little hard things in the stuffing.
Both the audio and hard copy you want to read it without the mumbles at next year’s dinner.
Join us on Saturday, November 26 at the High Noon Saloon, 701 E Washington, if you’re anywhere contiguous to Madison, WI, for our Alt-Thanksgiving with the comical Andy Kindler, John & Jeff Jazz, Stephanie Lee & me. And the best Bloody Mary’s anywhere. You’ll be doubly thankful!
A Prayer of Thanksgiving
Go resignedly to the folks’ remembering it’s just for a few hours. Though you must make appearances at her side as well as your own, eat with as much relish as you can muster, for this, too, shall pass. Choose carefully your words, gingerly stepping around your cousin Leah’s latest fiasco with the Arthur Murray instructor, and ask not about Marlene.
Let on not that you have heard these stories before and utter them not aloud simultaneously nor anticipate the punch lines. Chew with vigor and bite thy tongue, for the bird hath been cooked since Tuesday, yet praise it tenderly for it never heard a compliment in life. Be sage about the dressing though you know not the origin of the little hard things; should you bite into a wedding band, return it with discretion. Though it resemble syrup, pour not the Manishewitz on the sherbet.
Avoid your Uncle Lou; he is vexatious to the spirit. Kick not your little brother under the table, but show the forbearance of the season and pound him later. Picture Naomi and the kids as alien life forms, and learn from them. Shout not at Gram, for she heareth what she chooseth. Though you take on much wine, sing not the Barber of Seville nor show undue attention to your niece, who has become quite the young lady. If belch though must, let it not herald the start of a contest. Mince no words over the pie which passeth all understanding.
Above all, say nothing on the ride home, even though the temptation to cite what might have happened but didn’t be great. For that give silent thanks, resolving to firm up those plans for Aruba over Christmas.

You know this will be the last Thanksgiving the national turkeys get a presidential pardon.
Let’s not think about that. Or the Hillary/Trump tables at Thanksgiving.
Let’s think about Alt-Thanksgiving at Whad’ya Know at the High Noon in Madison!
So Alt- it’s even on a Saturday–November 26.
So Alt- the only politics brought up will be jokes you very nearly feel comfortable laughing at!
Should the above fail, a world-renowned comic, Andy Kindler–Mort the Mortician, will break you up!
John & Jeff will play NO HOLIDAY TUNES!
Bloody Mary’s galore to combat any vestiges of holiday depression!
And a chance to win fabulous if useless prizes on the Whad’ya Know quiz! We’re talking finger unicorns here!
Alt-Thanksgiving, Whad’ya Know @ High Noon, 701 E Washington, Madison, Saturday November 26, at noon.
You owe it to yourself.
