December 2019 Events

Party Lights!

Closing out 2019 with music by the Lofi Sofias and the Conduits. Turn your party lights on.

New Year’s Eve join me for Oms and Eats in the early afternoon – then in the early evening, a porch party with the Conduits – ending just in time for the Pine Cone Drop (or a decent night’s sleep).

Riding into the Velvet Sunset

“Jenny said when she was just five years old
There was nothing happening at all
Every time she puts on a radio
There was a nothin’ goin’ down at all, not at all
Then one fine mornin’ she puts on a New York station
You know, she couldn’t believe what she heard at all
She started shakin’ to that fine fine music
You know her life was saved by rock ‘n’ roll
Despite all the amputations
You know you could just go out
And dance to a rock ‘n’ roll station
It was alright (it was alright)
Hey baby, you know it was alright (it was alright)”

– Lou Reed
