conspiracy of venus 2x (thurs+sun, win tix), ash reiter & foxtails brigade xmas albums, jascha returns, tiny cupcakes, sat & mon yoga, NYE @ amnesia!

hope you have been looking up at the sky a lot lately. shooting stars, lunar eclipses, bright white moon, red too, or maybe orange. meteor shower tonight. there's a lot to see!

this week there are two seaweedsway shows which are also conspiracy of venus performances, thursday in berkeley and sunday in sf. the choir has shifted a bit this year, and i feel like i've had to step it up a little and learn the songs more (ha. ah.), so i'm even more excited to be singing w/ the group. we are bringing back some old songs, and sharing some of the newer ones too. by leonard cohen, joni mitchell, tom waits, rufus wainwright, & even one by our director joyce todd mcbride herself. both nights will be holiday themed. if you're into that. would love to see you there!!
