DRESSES + DAD + BABY & THE MACKS (ANNA ASH) + PHOEBE HUNT @ AMNESIA- THURSDAY! / restorative yoga workshop sunday / the lawlands, driftwood singers cd release, & chrystian rawk saturday 6/30 @ starry plough

happy solstice! 
with more time & space to be outside lately, it occurs to me that putting together shows is similar to gardening. the shows begin as a little seed, planted at a venue, then they need water and sun and love to grow! & pairing bands is like companion planting. seriously!! so this email is an attempt at helping these shows grow and travel into your days. the live performances are like the flowers that have taken time & patience (& band practices!) to sprout. i hope that you can take a moment to peruse the list and make a note of any that spark your curiosity. if you survived that metaphor, please read on!

another way to use this list is to learn of local to the bay area (& sometimes touring or visiting) bands. i'd love for you to click the links to listen, & if you're feeling adventurous, come to the shows to explore new bands you haven't yet heard. also, know that your presence is what completes these shows and thus, your effort to attend is much appreciated! you are supporting the artists & also the seaweed sway project each time you attend one of these shows!

on the topic of new music, i wanna give a shoutout about tomorrow night's show at amnesia. three best-friends, erica fink, anna ash, and christine hucal, are coming together to share their music in one night. michigan represent. their bands, dresses, baby & the macks, & DAD, respectively, are gonna rock your soul and probably make you laugh a little too. i'm excited to see what the night will bring. they've been known to sing all together at times*, and occasionally there's a dance contest. we've also added to the bill a touring artist, phoebe hunt, in town from nashville, to release her EP. by the way, baby & the macks is an R&B/soul cover band, and i think this is their first official performance, so get ready!!! 9pm the night starts, with DAD on first! (belated DAD's day celebration + bring your mom!)

*the high quality sounds of christine, erica, and anna singing together could not be fully captured by technological devices, and instead are much more audible in real life. 

you can win tickets too! at if you comment on this flyer by erica.
