Thao and Mirah Chasing the Moon Friday w/ Mike Sempert, Dina Maccabee, Travis Vick / Conspiracy of Venus Monday /

here's another list of SeaweedSway endorsed events.  :)

first a boring logistical thing: i'm trying it out w/ keeping the descriptions this time, but the formatting is kind of a mess. sorry about that. if you want to see a more readable version, or get more info for any of the events, go to and type in "agenda". (all these events have facebook pages w/ more details too, so please rsvp and invite friends!)

now, a mini rundown:
tonight i'm helping w/ merch at the Beth Custer Ensemble's show at the SF MOMA, so come by if you can! (i'll be there after choir practice, but you should definitely go earlier.) free w/ museum admission.

tomorrow is the full harvest moon, and with that we are having the chasing the moon show at viracocha! thao and mirah's episode release. just to be clear, they are not performing live, but you get to see their new never-before-seen podcast on the full moon, with live special solo sets from mike sempert of birds and batteries, dina maccabee (who just released her new CD!), and travis vick (an out of towner, so a rare occasion to see him play, and he is good!!). get there early to be sure you get in...

next week is insane w/ incredible shows in the best way possible; there is something every night! (except thursday?) i'll be at most of them so hope to see you there. see below for all the events you could ever possibly want to attend! :)
