David Sedaris
​Finally, a week packed with concert announcements! As we told you yesterday, The Arizona State Fair has Bob Dylan and a bunch of American Idol contestants coming, and that's not the only big show coming in October, as Boys Like Girls, the Atticus Tour, and Tech N9ne all bring their shows through town. Still, the thing we're most excited about is not a concert but a speaking date by author David Sedaris in May. Sure, it's a ways off, but you'd be wise to line up tickets to see the Naked author Talk Pretty One Day (that day is May 1).

Check out a brilliant reading one of my all-time favorite Sedaris essays below or click the jump for full show announcements.

Oh, and for a real treat check out the homepage of Sedaris brother Paul -- a.k.a. The Rooster -- subject of the below essay.
