Hey everyone! There’s a lot could be said, a lot to be said. I’m gonna talk about my music and what I’m up to, but in addition to all that I’m of course terribly concerned about the state of queer people in America, and doing my best to help others in this time that is so very dark for so many of us. If you’re reading this, know that I will have your back. For real.
So here are the things I’m up to!
Thursday, Feb 9: I play with my power trio (the return of Andy Halo & introducing the wonderful Kevin Coleman), opening up for the fabulous Homobiles (with whom I will be playing bass!), and our pal Juba Kalamka, with special guest Alicia BT from France! At SF Eagle, 8 doors, 9 music. 398 12th St at Harrison, SF.
Saturday, Feb 11: I am joining my dear friend Bev Grant on her tour with Charlie King for a set of revolution songs at The Backroom, 8 pm. 1984 Bonita Ave, Berkeley. Bev is a pioneering feminist rock and roll folksinger. If you don’t know her, check her out!
Sunday, February 12: I am beyond honored to be performing as part of the church service at First Church Berkeley, a progressive UCC ministry, currently being held at Congregation Beth El in BK due to a devastating fire. It is a remarkable community, and to share my music is humbling. 10 am. 1301 Oxford St, Berkeley.
Friday, February 17: I rescheduled my acoustic show at Bazaar Cafe last month due to illness — a first for me! The gracious owner, Les, has invited me to return, and I am so very pleased to be able to oblige. This is such a great spot, and props to KC Turner for introducing it to me! I’d love it if you all could spend your Friday hanging out in this special, totally acoustic listening room. 7 pm. 5927 California Street (btwn 21st and 22nd), San Francisco.
So that’s about it for right now! I’ll be back in NYC in March with the Homobiles for the Live Arts Festival, curated by Mx. Justin Vivian Bond, with a quick full-band set with the usual cast of NY characters at Rockwood Music Hall on March 15. Keep watching this page for some other exciting news!
