aquarius/pisces birthday party w/ slow motion cowboys

dear friends,

though this may look like a long message, not to worry.

essentially, there are only three main things to take in:
1) show announcements for tonight (sunday)
2) aquarius/pisces birthday party invitation for friday the 13th
3) events list summary / calendar-at-a-glance

*first, two shows happening tonight (sunday):

Conspiracy of Venus (COV) & Mira Cook are singing at the Rite Spot Cafe. 17th & Folsom Streets. Show starts at 9pm, the choir sings at 10pm, & it's free!! COV is a choir that I'm in w/ 40-50 other women. We sing the songs of Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Tom Waits, Bjork, Rufus Wainwright, Bill Withers, & more. We'd love to see you there. (Thanks to those who came to the Make-Out Room last week!)

If you want to hear wonderful music a little bit earlier, there is a great show happening not too far from the Rite Spot. It will be a double cd release for Sleepy Todd and Indianna Hale, plus Sean Hayes will play some songs. early! 7-10 pm. happy hours. $5. @ the KNOCKOUT. 3223 Mission, between cesar chavez and 29th.

The two shows sort of overlap, unfortunately, but I encourage you to go to at least one, if not both!

*secondly, you are invited to a shared birthday party, for myself & other aquarian/pisces folks, on friday the 13th! 9pm-1am at the Caretakers House - 848 Divisadero. if you think you can make it, let me know, since we will have a guest list at the door. Slow Motion Cowboys will share some songs! along w/ another band and possibly a DJ. ***if you or someone you know wants to DJ, please get in touch! there will be cupcakes too. BYOB (booze, broccoli, or brussels sprouts).

*thirdly, here's the events list! it has less details & links than ever before, so if you'd like more info - please check here ( in a day or two for the expanded list.

So start a new band!! and email us back ( because we are going to make a new flyer in a few weeks with all the band names and info. Get TO IT, spread the word, forward the email, whatever.
