yoga tomorrow, chasing the moon w/ foxtails brigade, cafe du nord & swap sunday

hey everyone,

a few announcements, and then an exciting list of events!

1) there was a lunar eclipse last night (that was not visible to backyard skywatchers) - but what is visible is the new chasing the moon episode. this is a podcast of local bands w/ a new episode released every every full moon. foxtails brigade are featured in honor of this month's lunar eclipse. watch it here: & see them play at their 7" release show this sunday at cafe du nord w/ devotionals, garrett pierce, & agent ribbons.

2) east bay swap this sunday! bring all the things you want to get rid of that someone else may want.

3) want to play guitar in a band? my herbalist is looking for a second guitarist for a new band he's forming that will do Grateful Dead covers, some originals, & some other covers. email Joshua Muscat if you're interested, or pass it on to anyone who might want to join.

4) looking for housing in the SF Bay area? I used to have a regular old email list for this, but it's grown, so I just started a google group where people can sign up to receive SF Bay housing announcements. Basically, I just pass on any housing announcements I receive. You can sign up here or pass on the link to friends who are looking. Also, feel free to send me any housing announcements you receive so I can pass them on.
