Ammery here! New contributor, librarian, and internet/cat enthusiast at your service.
I live in Phoenix, Arizona at a music venue called Funny World. It’s common for touring acts to crash at my place. A few months ago we had the privilege to host the David Liebe Hart Band! And this, dear readers, is my story.
But first, indulge me while I discuss the day I met David. My friend Erin and I (and a couple of exes I don’t care to mention) went to the 2008 Tim & Eric, Awesome Show, Great Job! Muscles for Bones Tour in LA.
We approached David after the show to purchase one of his CDs. If we ever had any doubts that David was putting on an act, they were gone now. Same guy, same button down shirt, same rumpled pants, and same black fanny pack. We chatted for a while and then he pulled out a stack of index cards from his back pocket. He proceeded to separate one of the cards from the pile, handed one to my friend, while saying, “You are a beautiful white dove.” On one side was one of his signature drawings… on the other side however… were his phone number, email address, and the message, “Hi you could be my girlfriend come true; I am a single gentleman interested in dating a beautiful woman such as you!”
Let’s think about that for a second.
The card was prewritten beforehand…
He had a stack of them…
It was basically a poor-man’s business card, if his “business” was getting pussy.
So, anyway, earlier this summer I got the privilege to meet David again when his band’s tour came through Phoenix. The place they lined up fell through, and I enthusiastically gave the band my address so they could have a place to stay that night.
The band is full of awesome guys (Adam Papagan, Preston Mendell, and Eric Hansen) who truly make the most out of David’s vocal and lyrical content. They are young and polite, and I enjoyed chatting with all of them.
Here’s a sampling of their work, I think it’s pretty good. The bands’ facial expressions when David introduces his songs are super cute.
Here are some of the cool things David and I talked about:
- How much he hates air conditioning.
- His SAG card, and the cool connections it provides him with.
- How he toured with the band Styx. (He discusses it in an interview, here.)
- Christian Science (the band told me that David makes a pit stop at a Christian Science church in virtually every city they tour through).
- How the aliens invented all the technology we use today.
- How he hasn’t been laid in 18 years.
- Oh, and, lest I forget, how politicians are lizard people/free masons, and part of their secret rituals includes performing homosexual acts, drinking the blood of babies, and virgin sacrifice.
In the midst of all this, here are some mementos David gave us:
I literally could have listened to him for hours but I had to get back to the ole’ library grind the next day, so after I jotted down a few notes to remember him by, I went to sleep. The next morning, on my way out, I found David sleeping on our patio couch outside. (This is a horrible picture, but I had to try and snap it quick before he woke up and caught me sneaking pictures of him like a creeper!)
Mind you, this was JUNE in ARIZONA (i.e. very hot)! He wasn’t lying about hating air conditioning!! I’m assuming this is a Korendiand thing…
To learn more about DLH check him out online! He’s literally everywhere: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Bandcamp, Tumblr, Etsy, Big Cartel.
In fact I would argue he has the best Tweets in the whole intertubes!:
