Today I...

- Gave a short concert for and then hung out talking with the folks who live at my grandma's retirement home (which is an actual house, with about 7 seniors, two caregivers and a kid-- a really wonderful environment). It was a lovely experience!

- Had dinner with the family and met my new niece for the first time. She is small and squishy and loud, and fascinated by one wall of her house in particular, which she stares at constantly. Still getting used to this.

- Went to a party hosted by the guy who ran one of the last big BBSes in the SF bay area, and had a great time talking to a bunch of old friends whom I hadn't seen in about a decade.

- Went to DaveB's 30th birthday party, which was done as an old-school sleepover. Played NES games (on an actual NES), made banana splits, and watched The Room (zomg everything you've heard about it is true, and then some).

- Decided that I am too old to sleep on the floor, and am now back at home, happy to have a real bed.

Lovely day. :)
Signal boosting from [livejournal.com profile] juldea. I'm so sad I'm going to be out of town for this big opportunity for a local group. Come to my house and enjoy the music for me!!

TOMORROW, Monday October 11, 2010 (the holiday!), Sassafrass and Heather Dale will be performing a joint house concert! Sassafrass will go on at 4pm and sing for 30-45 minutes, then pass the torch to Heather and her co-artist Ben Deschamps who will perform for at least an hour.

Heather Dale is a SUPER big-time Celtic/filk singer. This is a pretty amazing opportunity for us.

The concert will be at the house some of you know as BCOS, 393 Belmont St, Belmont, MA. The house is directly on the 73 bus line out of Harvard Square (between the Payson Rd and Oakley Rd stops.) There is no-fee street parking. There will be a suggested donation of $10 to cover concert expenses.

If you missed the last Sassafrass concert, this is a great time to catch us again (albeit a smaller group.) We're all sorry for the last-minute notice, but we have had only a slightly longer amount of time to practice and set up details, so we're frazzled about it, too!
