Invisible Ocean 2010

hey! more good things to know of ...

my dear friend Eli has planned year two of the INVISIBLE OCEAN festival up at Old Mill Farm in Mendocino. It's quite something to plan a music festival from the ground up...and a whole other thing to have it go so well that you plan a second one. Last year was dreamy, and I know this year will be dreamy in old and new ways.

all the info on the event can be found here. get tickets soon! getting them now will not only secure your spot but will grease the wheels of this event...everyone needs a nest egg.

and here's some photos to give you sense and perhaps wet your appetite for a final summer celebration.

Coconut Grace Cathedral...crucial

Land and Sea and Episco Disco present the record release of Coconut at Grace Cathedral this Friday the 20th. the new record has a perfect drawing by jesse schlesinger for a cover, and has some perfect touches by colter on the vinyl.
this event is going to be off the chain...I'm going to be flying on the red eye to the east coast that night, but I want to go so bad that I'm packing my bag and bringing it to the show so I can stay til the last possible there's a chance I'll be the guy running out of the cathedral in the middle of a song with a suitcase.
it's probably going to happen

all info is here

back in book

so, after my first book in 'ribbons box set,' I took a little break to do lots of stuff, and now as lots of stuff is settling nicely to a close, and I'm getting to work on book 2. As you might remember, this series of books charts the course of the shows organized over the past 4 1/2 years under the name ribbons. The first book was about the first show (in the Eucalyptus Grove...some copies are still available if you're interested), and this second book will be about the second show, The Tunnel Show.

I am now in the process of gathering photos of the show, so if you have any please email me please ! The photo above is by my dear friend Kevin Haas, who caught some good glimpses of that day.

I returned to the tunnel the other day and had a morning of tunnel singing and misty headlands wandering. . . it's as good as ever.

Grouper by Myleen Hollero

Myleen! what an eye... I first met her after she shared some dreamy photos of her experience at the BARN SHOW back a year and a half ago. She caught some good light with Grouper...
