Live music – last time we experienced this was Devotchka at Neumos years ago.
Other Lives (live) comes up All Roses for me – we saw them at the Tractor Tavern in Seattle and enjoyed everything about this band which you can sample here via KEXP Radio. As a side note, if you’re in Seattle, KEXP studio sessions are live in-studio performances that you can see/hear in person (free) and be sure to say hi to our friend Jim Beckman there, just another awesome human walking the planet.
The full moon will temporarily lose its shine tomorrow and become completely dark – a unique phenomenon and rare gift – opening a cosmic portal direct to our planet and to us. The activating portal will allow us to expand our experience of being and of living in the present moment. The portal opens at 4:50 a.m. and closes at 8:22 a.m. PST [open 3 hr 32 m with the greatest pull occurring at 6:36 a.m.]
The scope of people’s non-conforming lives and the ultra fascinating under-the-radar street art world: Banksy’s “Exit Through the Gift Shop” is a collage musically, visually and intellectually with a little twist of lemon at the end. Real or Prank? Who cares, it’s solidly entertaining. Stream on Netflix.

Somewhere in your make-up (perhaps in the cells of your brain) there lies sleeping, the seed of achievement which, if aroused and put into action, would carry you to heights, such as you may never have hoped to attain. – Napoleon Hill
