THE KINKSTER UNVEILS DECEMBER BIPOLAR DATES
Is Kinky Friedman, self-proclaimed author, columnist, musician, beautician and Governor of the Heart of Texas, really bipolar? Though this is likely a question for a higher authority or licensed professional, Kinky will nonetheless reprise his super-successful BiPolar Tour in December. Beginning with dates at some of his favorite haunts in the Midwest (he starts in Kansas City on November 30), the tour will wind through the Rockies, before going coastal in California and Oregon. Kinky will perform solo with New Jersey artist Brian Molnar opening on most of the dates. In San Diego, he’ll reprise his smash co-bill with Mojo Nixon.
The BiPolar World Tour is nothing if not a fact-finding mission, as Kinky calculates national political views, particularly toward the Kinkster himself. For Kinky is considering a second run for Texas governor. After a plethora of recent (and ongoing) gaffes by Texas’ Rick Perry, one of the nation’s least popular sitting governors, the Kinkster will bring a fresh view of Texas politics with him.
Aside from his pending political rebirth, Kinky is both energized and excited about all things Kinky, not least of which is his new book written with Willie Nelson, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die. Additionally, conversations have already begun with major publishers about a return of Kinky’s intrepid detective . . . himself, with a two-book deal in the offing.
Kinky will be hawking a new live solo CD, Live From Woodstock, recorded on the first American leg of the BiPolar Tour and featuring some of his best work ever. He will also introduce Kinky Friedman’s Man in Black Tequila to Californians, with tastings at most venues and auctions in each city of three-bottle gift boxes. All profits from the auctions go to the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch, Kinky’s favorite 501c3 charitable organization.
