My Friend Paul – Saturday 8/28 6 p.m.-8 p.m.
Paul Bogas will perform at Blue Dogwood Market.
Paul Bogas, who performs as My Friend Paul, is a singer-songwriter except for the singer part, although he has decided to sing anyway. In his youth, Paul played guitar in, and wrote songs for, various power pop bands, including The Pop Mechanics (who played at, among other places, CBGB in NYC) and in several bar bands, including the HighBeams and Bondy, who played a million places, just not necessarily that well. None of these bands would let Paul sing, or made any money, and so, disillusioned with the music business, Paul quit for 30 years. During that time he ran away to Micronesia, wrote award-winning plays, published short stories and poetry, and built two people from the ground up with a little help from their mother. One day, upon hearing a little bird, Paul had an epiphany that no one had to “let” him sing, and so he broke into song (the part about the bird is not strictly true), and because no one has been able to stop him from singing since, he has embarked on this latest and most inexplicable phase in his musical odyssey. Paul writes a mixed bag of indie pop and singer-songwriter compositions. Some of it’s weird or funny, but most of it isn’t. Some of it is so sad and beautiful that it makes Pete cry. Paul believes that vulnerability is the secret sauce of his music. In 2019, My Friend Paul released its debut EP, “Little Birds,” and I (full disclosure: I am Paul) encourage you to buy as many copies as you and your parents can afford.
