The Watson Twins join Davy Rothbart and his Found Magazine‘s Denim and Diamonds Tour when it comes to the Largo at the Coronet on June 24th.  Hitting 55 cities, the tour is in celebration of the release of Requiem for a Paper Bag and includes music from Peter Rothbart, who performs Found-themed songs.

They’ll be sharing new notes, letters, death threats and other found objects.  I saw this show in Ann Arbor last month, and I wholeheartedly endorse it–it’s totally funny. Plus, the Watson Twins to boot.

See ticket info on the Largo site.

Davy Rothbart’s “Requiem for a Paper Bag”

foundanthology_cover

Davy Rothbart is a cool guy from Ann Arbor, Michigan.  He went to a high school referred to as “Commie High,” and he’s the creator of the ingenious Found Magazine, “a showcase for all the strange, hilarious and heartbreaking things people’ve picked up”–things like poorly scrawled death threats, love letters, old pictures, etc. etc. You may have also read his short stories, seen him speak in your town, or heard him on This American Life.

Rothbart’s latest offering is Requiem for a Paper Bag. The anthology, which I’ve  heard is hilarious, includes 67 pieces  from celebrities like Chuck D., Devendra Banhart, Tom Robbins, Miranda July, Chuck Klosterman, Billy Bragg and others reflecting on found items.  Pass it around at a party.

Check out the Found website–it’s addictive.
