A Sweet Lil Show for Amber!



We are throwing a Benefit/Show for our friend, Amber Vickers, who is traveling all the way from Boise, Idaho to NYC to see us play. :)

We decided that since Amber is so amazing, we want to do something special for her. Since the show at Rockwood is free(!)--we are going to donate our tips, and our cd/merch sales from the performance to the Lupus Foundation of America-- cuz Amber has Lupus, and quite frankly, it sucks! (Please visit http://www.lupus.org to find out what lupus is all about) And she continues to be her fabulous self, smiling through the continuous adventures that Lupus has taken her on.

We can't wait to put on a FABULOUS show for Amber...
but we need you all to come and make it even better!

Let's sing, dance, party, give some money to the Lupus Foundation of America...but more importantly,
let's CELEBRATE LIFE! with or without Lupus!!! :)


SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3rd, 7pm SHARP!
FREE!

This past weekend, my cello and I had the amazing opportunity of attending and participating in the New Directions Cello Festival in Ithaca, NY. A Festival devoted to the works of non-classical cello, the weekend consisted of workshops, collaboration, jamming and celebrating the oh-so-AMAZING instrument that we are so lucky to play-- the CELLO.

And what cellists we were able to play with!
Jody Redhage!
Claude LaMothe!
Rufus Cappadocia!
Stephen Katz!
Liz Davis Maxfield!
Stephanie Winters!
Corbin Keep!
And MORE!... (so many i can't remember every name/website...forgive me!)

Special Thanks to Chris White and Sera Smolen for all of the hard work they put into this festival, as well as the cello students at Ithaca College. We had a lovely time, and look forward to many amazing festivals to come. :)

and now we will just have to get ready for...JULY 3rd at Joe's Pub!

Great News!


We WON the "Music is a Joke" contest at StandUp NY!

Unbeknownst to the contestents, what would have been the semi-finals suddenly became the finals. Our assignment was Harry Potter, and luckily I wrote a fun lil number called, "Seek the Snitch." It was highly indecipherable, which helped. As did my trusty bow.

:)

Yahoo, We Won!

St. Vincent Slays Me.


I had the lovely, amazing opportunity of hearing St. Vincent LIVE last week, NPR loves them as much as I do, and I just have to make sure you all know how amazing they are. Click HERE to hear them live on NPR. :)

(However, I think the audience in NY was much quieter throughout her set. Screams yes-- but I don't recall as much chitter chatter.) I love NY!

This is NOT irene. :)

No, this is not Irene. But we'd like to thank those of you that sent this little bit of information to us. Lee Redmond lost her nails in an automobile accident. I might have to add that driving a car is not suggested if you have the world's longest fingernails.


Also, they say that dog owners look like their dogs-- who knew that fingernails could look like their owners???
