Friday, Jan. 3 we’re right back at it with Maestro Myron Cohen on the pots beating out a rhythm with el pianista Keith-0 Saunders et le bassiste extraordinaire Ollie le Dudek. Get down here at 5:30 with a fistful of dollars for the musicians and we’ll get this ball rolling!

Lavay Smith is here with Danny Armstrong on trombone Saturday night, and Sunday, Avotcja brings in the fine, exuberant cats that make up her band Modupue.

Curious what’s in the cards for us all? So are we! Come out Sunday midday at 2pm to hear from mystery writer Bevan Atkinson, as she pulls out her tarot deck to plumb the possibilities! Her best selling series, The Tarot Mysteries, is now five-books strong, with more to come.

And rounding out the first weekend of the year, Monday evening the poets get DT in their sites and set him up for his fall–Kim Shuck hosts Jerry Ferraz and Jose Luis Aldrete and a cadre of open mic poets in a rebellion against the sick and power-hungry profiteers that have just got to go. Come to put your two cents in or just to cheer ’em on! The future starts here!

That’s just the start of what promises to be a very fine year! We’ll be happy if you come along for the ride!
