Read about the very special In the Grove reading here for Andres Montoya. More about this soon.

Really want to try and catch this tonight:

THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTHTHURSDAY, MARCH 27 > 7 PMMCASD LA JOLLA$5 MCASD Members, Students, Seniors / $7 General
Nicolas Roeg continues to explore the outer limits of cinematic surrealism with this hallucinatory, screen adaptation of Walter Tevis' 1963 science-fiction novel about an alien traveling to Earth to find the means to rescue the survivors of his dying planet. In his first acting role, David Bowie portrays Thomas Jerome Newton, a brilliant extraterrestrial walking among us as the ultimate outsider in modern America.

Thanks to señor Nericcio for informing me.

Again, I just realized I missed another show I would've liked to have seen. The Magik Markers just played at the Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco. Funny, but not really funny, because this song's been on heavy rotation lately. Just like me to be attracted to a song like that. "Quit being such a downer," says Mandie. It's a nice one, though.

I won't be in S.F. long enough to see this one, but if you can, check out Batwings on March 27th. It's my brother's band, and they put on a great live show. Trust me! They'll be on a mini-tour. What they have on myspace is just a taste, but what you'll see is something entirely different.

A Time for Celebration

One of our good friend's just had a baby boy: 9 lbs, 5 oz. The kid just missed St. Patrick's Day! His pops couldn't keep his eyes off of him.

Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)--John Lennon
"Close your eyes, Have no fear, The monsters gone, He's on the run and your daddy's here, Beautiful,Beautiful, beautiful, Beautiful Boy"

On our way home, driving through LA and reading Tim Dlugos (I wasn't driving/busted my glasses a couple of days ago), I came across this line "Beside the path, the wren that lights in brush / sounds like a footstep in the gathering day." Sat in silence for several minutes after that.
We'll be in San Francisco for a few days later this week. We have a couple of things scheduled, but if anyone knows of anything interesting going on, please tell.
