Steve Martin and Martin Short at the Concord Pavilion


We're living in some crazy times. 

Every newscast I've watched lately contains information that ranges from unsettling to frightening, and this barrage of grim news never stops. I lived in Guam in the early 1990s, and I can't imagine what the locals are experiencing this week. Or the island's tourism board, for that matter.

I think the world could use a bit more humor.

Which is why I'm thrilled to have tickets to see Steve Martin and Martin Short's acclaimed comedy tour, when it makes a stop at the Concord Pavilion on August 11. The Pavilion is a wonderful venue, an absolute East Bay classic for summer concerts. To see Steve Martin perform comedy there is something I've waited for my entire life (or at least since I saw The Muppet Movie at the old Festival Cinemas in 1979).  

I can't wait.

Tickets are still available, here. Hope to see you there!
