Holy cow - we're only a few days away from December! Where did this year go? Well, you can't slow it down so you might as join the fun.
On Tuesday (Dec 1), The Triple Door is hosting The Round's Holiday Party. There's singing (Damien Jurado, Mark Pickerel, Kate Tucker, Matt Bishop of Hey Marseilles, Robert Deeble, Abbey Improv Band and more), live painting (Siolo Thompson, Jackie Moulton and Jesse Brown), and slam poetry (Buddy Wakefield and Elaina Ellis). Everyone says this is a blast and I can't wait! Even better, this current Round is also a fundraiser for the Fremont Abbey's arts programs.
I became a big fan of Kate Tucker after her performance at last month's New Guard dinner. Lucky us because in addition to her Tuesday show, she has another one lined up next Thursday (Dec 3) at the Tractor Tavern. This is going to be a really special show - it's the first one with her new 7 piece band. She'll be playing songs off her new album White Horses. You can pre-order the special edition album here and get a free gift.
