My Heart Is An Idiot: FOUND Magazine’s 10th Anniversary Tour!

This fall, road warriors Davy and Peter Rothbart are hurtling your way on FOUND Magazine’s 10th Anniversary Tour, which celebrates the release of Davy’s book of personal essays, My Heart is an Idiot, Peter’s new album, and a brand-new issue of FOUND. The Rothbart Brothers are hopping back in the tour van, FOUND treasures in tow, for an epic cross-country romp, with stops in 37 states and 75 cities!

At each exhilarating show, Davy (FOUND’s plucky point guard) will share the latest magnificent and mesmerizing finds that’ve landed in the mailbox here at FOUND HQ, plus outrageous tales from his new book, while Peter (FOUND’s international heartthrob) will dazzle with beautiful, haunting, and hilarious songs based on FOUND notes. Come on out and join us for these parties!! Please bring your finds to share, and please let your friends in other cities know that we’re headed their way!!

The tour schedule is still being finalized, so dates may shift from those listed below; check back for frequent updates. And feel free to email us at info@foundmagazine.com with venue suggestions, invitations to your town or school or college, media requests, local partnerships, or any other thoughts or ideas about our upcoming tour.

See you on the road!

“Davy and Peter Rothbart are utterly engaging performers!”

  3. You NEED to come to Florida and go to the Swap Shop in Ft. Lauderdale: I found a permanent seller with a building on site FILLED with stained glass lamp shades, old magazines, glass insulators and antiques galore – looked like a yard sale at your neighbor’s great grandfather’s barn!  There’s also a fascinating restaurant in North Palm Beach called Harry and the Natives with a life-size Camel (from the cigarette fame) along with a fabulous array of other antiques, especially signs.
