I’ll be performing with my band, The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library, twice this month:

7/24/11 – Artbeat Festival (Davis Square, Somerville, MA)

4pm at the Park Stage, Seven Hills Park, behind the Somerville Theatre

…but please consider coming at 3pm to hear my boyfriend’s fantastic “jewfro beat” band, Somerville Symphony Orkestar. Click that link to find out more about the band and hear a couple songs.

7/30/11 – Union Square Farmers’ Market (Union Square, Somerville, MA)

After a fun show at last summer’s market, we’ll be returning this summer. I don’t know the details yet, but I believe we’ll be running through our set a couple times throughout most of the open hours of the market…possibly 10am to 1pm. I’ll add more when I know for sure. Bring the kids and the dogs!

Thanks for visiting my website! Since I posts a variety of articles, photos, etc. in multiple places around the web, I’m going to use this section of my website as a sort of master blog, where I’ll link to content I post elsewhere as well as write about upcoming gigs, general stuff that doesn’t fit on my other blogs, and such.
