Folk Without Borders, a Benefit for Doctors Without BordersThursday, May 27th, 2010


This is going to be a great night of music @ The Blue Rock Shoot in Saratoga, CA on June 6th, starting at 6:30pm. It’s a benefit for my favourite charitable cause, Doctors Without Borders. Admission is a requested donation of $10 and 100% of the proceeds from the door will go to Doctors Without Borders.

Playing will be folk rock artist Rhythma, SF Bay Area’s power folk trio Tin Cat, and Americana singer/songwriter Chris Hanson. Food, wine and beer are available at the venue and there’s plenty of parking in the back if you can’t find it on the street. Get there early because seating is limited.

Artshots Film PresentationTuesday, May 25th, 2010


I got an email from my friend, Vincent Lowe about a week ago asking if I’d run sound for an event he was putting on at San Pedro Square Theatre in downtown San Jose. The event was called “Art Shots” and it was a small competition sponsored and facilitated by Artsopolis and Vincent Lowe to connect film makers to artists. The film makers would choose an artist that they wanted to interview and produce a 90 second film clip describing the artist. The event was the culmination of the competition, showing many of the films that were submitted and rewarding the winners. The grand price was awarded to ArtShots 2010, Carl Couchman.

The best part for me were the excellent live performances of artists from the competition, Amy Obenski and Tin Cat. I talked with the guys from Tin Cat and they’ve agreed to play with Rhythma at the Doctors Without Borders concert at The Blue Rock Shoot in Saratoga on Sunday, June 6th at 6:30pm.

Geronimo GarSunday, May 23rd, 2010


I was standing in a room with a man in his early 30’s, tall, dark hair, dark skin, clean shaven, possibly Puerto Rican. We were talking with a woman in a dark suit. She was in her 50’s, dark hair, educated. The conversation had gone into the topic of 60’s and 70’s television programs and she was talking about programs that the man didn’t know about. I don’t recall the names she used. I was given a book that had the name of the dark skinned man at the top of the first page. His name was Geronimo Gar.

Upcoming ShowsThursday, May 13th, 2010


I’ll be playing at The Blue Rock Shoot this Friday night at 10pm. I will be joined by some great musicians so if you wanna see Rhythma as a band, this is not a show to be missed. Get there early because seats tend to fill up but the crowd does come and go.

Also, I wanted to let you know that Tarradiddle (Sean Michael Imler and Bill Mason) will be the featured performer at the Red Rock Coffee Co. open mic on Monday, May 17. We’ll do a 1/2 hour set starting at 9pm, so come down and enjoy a post dinner coffee.

New Art – The Sight of FrequencySaturday, May 8th, 2010


I just uploaded a new piece of art to Fine Art America called “The Sight of Freequncy.” Take a look, and this time, I’m expecting my url minimizer to work. bit.ly killed me last time when my Socialite plugin malfunctioned. I’m using tinyurl.com now. It’s a little longer but not that much and it works. That’s a big bonus.
