D-light on a pine tree,
Hope you're all staying warm and are surrounded by friends and family. And we also hope you bring your friends and family out for some music and pizza and cheer at the DNote. If you happen to be alone, then by all means come on out the DNote and be less alone.
Thursday we're closed for Christmas, but Friday night we'll have Kate LaRoux singing her songs at 5:30pm (free) and then the super fun dance band "The Jagtones" at 8pm. $10 adults/ $5 kids.
Saturday night we have the Christmas return of the uber hip jazz of Serafin Sanchez and Jeremy Jones at 7pm. Jeremy Jones new jazz sextet is called The Teaching. Serafin is a long time friend of the D and we are always amazed by the Christmas concerts he puts together every year. $10
Next Wednesday for NEW YEAR'S EVE celebration we'll have the highly danceable African reggae of Irie Still back in the house. Clamdaddys play at 5pm, Quillion acoustic at 7pm and then Irie Still around 9. Only $12, includes a champagne toast at midnight. 2009 is going to be epic!
We got a beautiful review in World Dance News. "The D Note is a most fun place....and the whole atmosphere is one of smiles." Nice. Also here's Otis Taylor, from our stage a couple of weeks ago... "I like this place. It's different."
Tis the season,
Extra Credit: We have a slide show for you of the new solo art show up at the D Note by Markham "shitty kitten" Maes called "Letters and Ladies". This week's poem is embedded in one of the paintings for you to find.
