OMG! It has been a fabulous month of music and a badass month of activism. Last week, I spoke at the SF Gender Strike, in solidarity with International Women’s Day. It was an unbelievable and humbling experience. I am certain we as people are on the verge of some real social change despite external forces. Keep it going!!
So I’m back in NYC for a wonderful, groundbreaking arts festival, and figured since I haven’t been home in 6 months I might as well play a kickass show with my pals! So my full band plays this Weds, March 15, at 11 pm – no cover charge. Right before me are Maddy Wyatt and Michael Wagner, two of my dear friends from the NYC scene – it’s basically a family reunion. 196 Allen Street, New york, NY 10002. www.rockwoodmusichall.com
The very next night, Thursday, March 16, I am honored to be part of the Leave a Lasting Mark tribute to NYC songs, in memory of Kenny Gorka,which is a benefit concert for the foundation set up in his memory for musicians in need. That’s at the Bitter End, and I’ll be singing lead on one song and jamming guitar on a few others. 147 Bleecker St, $10 suggested donation.
Last but most certainly not least, on Sunday, March 19, at I’m playing bass with my SF pals, The Homobiles, at the Mx’d Messages Festival, a queer arts fest curated by the incredible Justin Vivian Bond and Elizabeth Koke.
