• Robert Newman – Britain’s top comic and author of the stunning new novel, Fountain at the Center of the World, which the New York Times says, “. . . reads like what you’d get if Tom Wolfe clambered inside the head of Noam Chomsky — it elegantly and angrily scorches a lot of earth . ”

Shamelessly cheap advance ticket price of $20 – order now at

• Laura Flanders, author of, Bushwomen: Tales of a Cynical Species, an unexpurgated look under the political skirts of Bush molls Condoleeza, Katie Harris and others, will introduce the music of Et-Cetera, Soft Explosions and Stephan Smith (Ween).

• Plus tracks from the Enhanced Spoken work CD, WEAPON OF MASS INSTRUCTION – LIVE, including “George Bush – War Hero or War Zero” – “Marines in a Tube” – “Perle of Arabia” and more. From Jello Biafra’s (of Dead Kennedy’s fame) label Alternative Tentacles.

Can’t make it to Noo Yawk? Then buy the CD at our website. Or donate to our foundation, The Palast Investigative Fund. Pop $50 or more into the tax deductible Fund and get a signed CD.

Greg is still in court defending his investigative work in the New York Times bestseller, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. The First Amendment guarantees a free press, but not free lawyers.

And thanks for the donations that have come in this week; it’s kept our team in business. So, let’s celebrate.

And what the hell is an “enhanced” CD? If you put it in your car CD player, it plays like a CD and annoys your carpool mates. Stick it in a computer drive and it works like a DVD with documents that pop on the screen — the confidential stuff the powers that be rather you not see.

VERY limited space. Please order now by credit card, check or Paypal.

You can pre-order tickets / make a donation over the phone. Call toll-free: 1-877-4-PALAST
