I'm very honored that my pal Gregg Turner and I have been asked to be the first musical entertainers to perform at George R.R. Martin's newly re-opened Jean Cocteau Cinema. This Turner/Terrell Tango will take place 9 p.m. this Saturday night, Sept. 7.

Tickets are $5 (cheap).

Turner, a mild-mannered math professor by day, is best known for being a former member of the Southern California punk rock band The Angry Samoans. His latest album is simply called Gregg Turner Plays the Hits. 

I'm probably best known as a newspaper reporter, though in a former life I had delusions of being a musician and actually released two albums -- Picnic Time for Potatoheads and Pandemonium Jukebox -- on the dynamic Blue Elf label.

Hope to see you Saturday.

Here's a little preview of the music:
