MY HEART IS AN IDIOT:
FOUND MAGAZINE'S 10TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR!
This fall, FOUND Magazine point guard Davy Rothbart hits the road for his 13th tour, with visits to 20 of his favorite U.S. cities. FOUND treasures in tow, he’ll be zooming from the West Coast to the East Coast and back again for FOUND’s Unfinished Business Tour “20/13!”, which celebrates the paperback release of Davy’s acclaimed book of personal essays, My Heart is an Idiot, the release of a new album compiling Davy’s work on This American Life and other beloved public radio shows, and the brand-new issue of FOUND Magazine. Tickets are $5 and $10 in advance or at the door; guests purchasing $10 tickets receive a free copy of My Heart is an Idiot or This American Life CDs
At each exhilarating show, Davy will share the latest magical and mesmerizing finds that’ve landed in the mailbox here at FOUND HQ, plus outrageous tales from his book, My Heart is an Idiot, and essays from his work on This American Life. Joining Davy onstage is one of his favorite tour finds of all-time—the dazzling, uniquely talented sword-swallower Brett Loudermilk. Prepare to be amazed and disturbed! With special guest, charismatic DJ Mikah Tha Vipah (a.k.a. Hakim Selby).
