rocking auld reekie

Back from Edinburgh last night after opening The Event on Friday.

Early reviews are in and strong, four stars in The Scotsman and The Guardian.

Check out the love here:

But no laurel resting or champagne toasting here at the Museum. While Calvitto toils away all month in Scotland, we open the show again, with the lovely and talented Matt Oberg, at the New York International Fringe Festival this Saturday.

Got Scotland on my mind, so our MMMQ concerns Craig and Charlie Reid or The Proclaimers, the best songwriters out of Scotland since Robbie Burns himself.

In their big hit from back when, 500 Miles, they promise that

"If I haver, I'm going to be the one who's havering with you."

1. Drinking

2. Blathering

3. Vomiting


4. Breaking and entering

Winners get a big plate of haggis, losers get the same.
