TONIGHT! Dina Maccabee and the Excellent Spellers + Holly Mae and the Painted Room @ MILK! 2011 locally-made Calendars! Kacey Johansing and Rad Cloud @ Amnesia Thursday! Comedy @ the Rusty Nail Sat. Jan. 8th!

Happy holidays and happy end of 2010! What a year. We made it. (3 more days) Thanks to all of you who have hung out at shows this year, and to those who have stayed on this list even if you can’t make it to the shows, yoga classes, swaps, etc. :) Hope to see you all TONIGHT for a special post-holiday (or mid-holiday if NYE counts as a holiday?) SeaweedSway show with Tenderfoot, Dina Maccabee and the Excellent Spellers, Holly Mae and the Painted Room (in town from Germany!), and the Sylvain Carton Quartet featuring Autonomos Rogers at MILK! folk-jazz-pop-awesomeness in the upper haight across from Amoeba Records. If you're in town, don't miss it! theme ideas have gone through a great progression, you decide what the theme is for you: regifting -- xmas gifts trends --ipads -- ipads with milk on them (if you’re really feelin’ it) -- drunken magi -- scarf night --sing-along night

Get more excited about the show tonight by going here:

Since I'm always encouraging you to mark your calendars, which I hope you'll do when you read the list of shows below, if you still need a calendar for 2011, I recommend you get the Poor SF Bastard's Almanac and Weekly Organizer! it's like a slingshot in that it's a work of art and is home-made, but it's locally focused as well. it has all sorts of neat relevant info - free museum days, last BART times, moon phases, pesticide levels of common produce, which anti-gay companies to boycott, supervisor's contact info, ukulele fretboard and chords, etc. email Stephen at to buy them direct (and pay less - only $8) or pick one up at dog-eared books, Needles Ånd Pens, or other local bookstores.

On a slightly different note, if you want some stress-relieving yoga this weekend to start 2011 relaxed and rejuvenated: I’m teaching Gentle Hatha on Saturday 12:30-2 and Restorative Yoga Sunday 6:30-8 at the Yoga Loft. Details at or email me if you have questions.

Thanks again for supporting SeaweedSway in 2010! if you're in the bay area, hope to see you tonight and at as many of the events below that you can find your way to! Happy New Year. ~jessie
