Mariee Sioux, The Beehavers, & Mark Grabiner @ the Starry Plough SATURDAY/ NEW YEAR MIX / New Years Day Restorative Yoga @ 4:30pm

Hi everyone!
Happy solstice & Happy New Year! Some announcements + calendar below. Thank you again for a wonderful year, and for all of the support from near & far. It really means a lot & keeps this project going. For your ears: please check out the new year mix (band list below)!!

1) Tomorrow, Saturday December 29th, is a big night, and I'd love to see you. It is the finale of the East Bay Seaweed Sway monthly series we've been doing this year at the Starry Plough. It's been a great run! Thanks to all who have participated! The year will end with songs from The BeehaversMariee Sioux, & Mark Grabiner (very rare show)! 

Please get there early if you can! Doors at 8 (best time to hang out), & Mark goes on at 9pm. He is doing a few covers, including Mountain Goats, Sufjan Stevens, and he mentioned something about telling a story while playing a medley of Neutral Milk Hotel songs. He is interested in alternative live performances - here is a link to something he did before - playing at a Neuroscience Graduate Art Student Art Show at UC Berkeley while linked to a biofeedback visualizer- ummm, awesome.

If you've been waiting all year for the right night to journey to Berkeley for this show, now's the time! It's also Kacie Loparto of She Sells Seaweed's birthday, so we'll be celebrating her greatness + bring some extra $$ for her delicious hand-harvested seaweed!! & my uncle is in town visiting - bring your family too and let's hang out. :)

You can still win tix by going to - look for this poster in the newsfeed - click it - and leave a comment. Winner will be picked tomorrow afternoon. Poster by Sean Kae!
