I am Dandy Exhibit - Mr B is Coming to Town for Opening Nov 18!

Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer (shown here in London 2009) will be playing the I am Dandy exhibit opening Nov 18.  This will be his first time performing in NYC - a rare treat!  

VERY EXCITED to be officially announcing the I am Dandy week long exhibit at the National Arts Club Nov 18-22.  You are all invited to the opening party on Mon Nov 18 from 6-8pm, but YOU MUST RSVP (see announcement below).  Space is limited, so DO IT NOW!

I have been imploring Mr. B to come to NYC ever since I first met him at the Chap Ball in 2009 in London.   I think he is just delightful, and unlike anything you will find in NYC.   The very special performance he give for us at the Nov 18 opening should not be missed!  Be sure to check his website and Facebook page for other performances.

"But I aspire to be the purple stripe, that is, the garment’s brilliant hem.  However small a part it may be, it can still manage to make the garment as a whole attractive.  Don’t tell me, then, ‘Be like the rest,’ because in that case I cannot be the purple stripe."

–Epictetus, On Human Freedom

That is Natty reading an excerpt from his introduction for I am Dandy, along with Winston Chesterfield playing his piano when Kelly and I first visited him in London, Sept 2011.
