ADOMANIACS REJOICE: This summer I’m hitting up the raddest cities in North America - that also happen to be easy for me to visit during a breakneck regimen of writing and debauchery here in Los Angeles. (As always I am a gay, so please bring one homosexual for every homophobe in your party just to balance out the audience for all these shows.)
