Smart, charming, acerbic, irreverent, SMITTY & MILES present their funny and imaginative world at West of Lenin.
SMITTY & MILES Winter Wednesdays
I was not cool in 1966, and am not cool today, but last Wednesday night was as close as I’ll ever get without a man bun. Pattie and I did an hour-long set with jazz guitarist Milo Petersen. Milo and the great Floyd Standifer performed several times with Seattle Improv in the 80’s . Wednesday felt brand new and ancient at the same time. Thanks Milo! He has promised to come back.
Wed, Dec 16th, with Porchlandia: Molly Arkin and Britney Barber, and they are really, really funny.
Wed, Dec 23rd, Joe Guppy will be there, acting as a therapist, for a couple that Smitty & Miles play every week. Very interesting
Wed, Dec 30th, The Edge featuring Cookus Interruptus’ Cynthia Lair, Bhama Roget, & Susan MacPherson, plus Ken Balenger. I will twist Frank Buxton’s arm. It makes me feel young.
