Since my livejournal is being syndicated in at least one place I've been making all my personal life entries Friends-Only and only making entries of general public interest public. If folks are interested in reading my more personal entries you should get a livejournal. It's completely free and there's no spam or advertising. You don't have to write in your livejournal you just have to friend me and be friended by me so you can read and comment on my friends-only entries.

I'm looking at you mom and dad and sister and any other lurkers. There's tons of stuff I write about that you don't get a chance to see. Get a livejournal!

A Show I Didn't Book

Corkscrew After Dark - Taper's Tour!

When Sam played with Melissa Ferrick last spring was the first time I'd heard her. After hearing so much good stuff about her I wasn't let down. I bought all her CDs. An interesting feature of this tour is that she hasn't released a new CD in a few years and she's got a TON of new songs. So she's encouraging tapers to make their own "new" album by taping her shows. :)

I'm so happy to have the chance to help spread the word about a local folk show that I didn't book! I'm so happy that Joni Laurence has started booking great local folk shows and that the Corkscrew Wine Emporium has stepped up to offer a smoke free venue for folk shows and that this show is going to be FREE! It's like my dream come true and I didn't even have to do the work on this one.

I'm listening to an interview with Sam Shaber on WEFT's We're Only In it for the Music right now and Dave is playing a great interview with Sam Shaber where she talks about each of her songs and then he plays the song. I'm very inspired and I'm so looking forward to going to this show!

And the cool thing I only just realized tonight is that from 2pm-6pm, before the 8pm show there's a WEFT benefit wine tasting at the Corkscrew. $5 for samples of wine AND chocolate from around the world and ALL the money goes to WEFT.
Chocolate & Wine Tasting!
