Tour

found2013unfinishedbusinessSo Whatcha Sayin’?!

This fall, My Heart is an Idiot author and FOUND Magazine point guard Davy Rothbart hits the road for his 13th tour, with visits to 20 of his favorite U.S. cities. FOUND treasures and funny, soulful stories in tow, he’ll be zooming from the West Coast to the East Coast and back again for FOUND’s Unfinished Business Tour “20/13!”, which celebrates the paperback release of Davy’s acclaimed book of personal essays, My Heart is an Idiot, the release of a new album compiling Davy’s work on This American Life and other beloved public radio shows, and the brand-new issue of FOUND Magazine.

At each exhilarating show, Davy will share outrageous tales from his book, My Heart is an Idiot, and essays from his work on This American Life, plus the latest magical and mesmerizing finds that’ve landed in the mailbox here at FOUND HQ. Joining Davy onstage in most cities is one of his favorite tour finds of all-time—the dazzling, uniquely talented sword-swallower Brett Loudermilk. Prepare to be amazed and disturbed! And bringing the beats is charismatic Brooklyn-based DJ Mikah Tha Vipah, a.k.a. Hakim Selby.
