broken hearts in his wake

The former loves of Davy Rothbart are probably pretty pissed at him by now. Since his essay collection My Heart Is An Idiot hit the shelves last year, Rothbart — creator of FOUND Magazine, filmmaker, and contributor to NPR program This American Life — has recounted his sometimes endearing, sometimes excruciating love blunders live on tour all over the country. Lucky for him, this year's Unfinished Business Tour sends him on stage with a particularly talented entourage, should any of the aforementioned ladies show up to exact revenge on the Idiot. His little brother, musician Peter Rothbart, accompanies him on tour to perform songs inspired by finds from the magazine. Long awaited new issue FOUND #9 just came out, as well as a new album compiling the elder Rothbart's work on This American Life, giving both brothers much fodder to tug at your heartstrings with.
