I joined a new app to find collaborators in Cascadia. I’ll report about how good it works for me and vice versa, called Shapr.
Also joined a team to work on an app/site/media for Taming Bigfoot, a contest in the Seattle area (total leading city in prototyping/activating the clean energy movement). My bandmate & I were talking on the bus the other day, if you want to help things be better, in this case healthier environment, go find the others who are already doing that and help them… et voila.
We’re on our way & we got that fire. It’s more than a start, it’s a fire!
Rise Up! Action Band played at the 350 Seattle fundraising shindig last night. It was a blast, if you are into helping the planet transition to clean energy, water, food, & fuel, aire like I am go check out 350 in your area & get on board they/we are making good waves. Keep the Oil in the Soil!!
And I LOVE THIS FLUTE!
Music house life is pretty damn sweeeeet! Happy holiday time internet massive!
Basphite has been working on an album to sell out of the case. I’m so pumped about this project!
And I’ve been on a quest for 100 subscribers on Youtube “Creativity in Cascadia” so I can unlock more features to start. I’m posting a lot of videos on there, getting a good flow on. Creativity will save the world!
And THIS WEEKEND Seattle paintings by Anna Thoreau are up at The Underground club in Pioneer Square for your third eye’s pleasure, and for purchase, make me an offer!
Pixie Dust is such a boss ass project too. Now Chris the uber talented Violin and Banjo player (just to name the instruments he plays in our band) he plays so many more WELL. But yeah, we played at the Ballard Farmers Market recently and it was FUNN!
Pixie Dust played the open mic this week at Blue Moon hosted by the lovely and talented Nomi, it was a blast!
Another Pixie Dust sighting at the Sunday Ballard Farmers Market. Good scene, we played by the flower booth.
And Anna Thoreau has a fall art show coming up this Thursday with two other amazing local Seattle artists, Kayla Cabe and Eva Lu. “Burning Down the House” at the Box House is gonna be a groovy, Eva and Anna will be livepainting, and there will be live music, poetry & fiction readings and areal acrobatics. This Thursday in Pioneer Square, Seattle, across from Occidental Park.
