Bay Area Conquest 2011!08/25/2011 at 3:48 am | Posted in News & Explanations | 1 Comment
Watch out Bay Area, here I come!!! It will be a bit of a whirlwind, so brace yourselves. No matter what part of the bay you live in, I’m doing my best to get to you!
And people: if you’ve never been to a house concert, you really must try it. I find folks are reluctant to RSVP and go to a stranger’s house, but here’s the thing — they’re a GREAT experience. You’ll never forget a house concert, it’s far better than a show at 80% of the venues I play. And if you’re not into talking to strangers, just bring a book or your smartphone and sit quietly in a corner — no one will bother you, and you’ll have the musical experience of a lifetime.
Even if you’re not a house concert person though there are plenty of shows. Come out! Tell a friend! The lineup:
