Here's the Pick List!
As promised, the show was packed with TONS of surprises - in-studio guest Mick Schafer of Tree Top Tribe; featured in-studio guest Will Redwood, who chatted with us about his artistic melding of poetry and visual art AND treated us to a reading of his poem"A Bird Song" now available as a picture book!
There was a ticket giveaway to Elephant Revival's performance on April 2nd at The Woods.
We had spoken word artistry through a poem by local poet Scot Siegel, an inspirationally poignant essay by Dana Roc and an excerpt of an interview with The Mighty Third Rail!
The Mighty Third Rail shared their thoughts about one of their pieces, "The New America" - a timely lyrical essay nestled on a bed of violin & bass. Simply amazing!
What else? Plenty! More music from independent artists. It was a show full of fantastic music and spoken word poking out from every corner.
As always, please support local artists by seeing performances and/or purchasing their art from local sources.
