Janis Is Coming!

This announcement really pleases me. One of my favorite singer/ songwriters, the one and only JANIS IAN, will be visiting Santa Fe later this month, and performing two shows at the Jean Cocteau.

Janis is a science fiction and fantasy fan, writer, and editor. I met her at the Philadelphia worldcon a decade and a half ago, and I've had the pleasure of hanging with her at a dozen subsequent worldcons. She's always great company.

I knew her songs decades before I met the singer, though. I had... have... her albums. (Albums... there were large discs made of vinyl, with music on them. You played them on this thing called a turntable. We still have one of those as well). If you're my age, you know her hits: Jesse, Society's Child, Between the Lines, Boots Like Emmy Lou's, When the Party's Over, Watercolors (a personal favorite)... there are so many... and of course, At Seventeen.

I've wanted to have Janis perform at the Cocteau ever since I reopened the place, and I am thrilled that it is finally going to happen.

She will be doing two shows, on the evenings of Sunday, February 22, and Monday, February 23. I expect both shows to sell out, so get your tickets now:


You can also call the theatre (during business hours) at 505-466-5528 and purchase tickets over the phone. Please be sure to have your credit card details on hand.

We will also have Janis's CDs on sale, as well as copies of her autobiography (she has led a pretty interesting life), and I know she'll be glad to sign them all.

Perchance one day I will travel to see Sante Fe and its many sights, including the Jean Cockteau. Fourtune may smile upon me soon, as I'm soon to publish my novel. It's about time traveling Centaurs who take over a Taco cart and turn it into an exhibit for the disenfranchised. But just as they find success, many vagabonds move into the cart, take it over, and won't ever leave. The protagonists realise they will be defeated unless... well, I could go on, but you'll have to wait until it gets published. Thanks for listening to my long tales.

Long been a Janis Ian fan, so happy you are getting to host her. As always Great Ser, thank you for all that you do.
