D bockels,

It's funny. We don't miss it. And yet we wouldn't have missed it for the world. What are we talking about? We couldn't say. Only you know for sure.

We can only tell you we are not talking about Something Underground with Wendy Woo and Angie Stevens tomorrow night, Friday Jan. 22, at the D Note, because we haven't missed that yet. We hope you won't either. Something Underground is not only a super talented, freewheeling band of brothers, but also a central axis along the deep, wide grid of local Colorado music. They bring that energy to their shows, especially when they play the D Note. This one will be no exception. Wendy Woo, as many of you know, writes and performs beautifully and you can bet she and the SU will be sitting in with each other. We've also been informed Angie Stevens will be jumping in the mix too. Wendy plays at 8 and SU will start around 10. $7, Alex Boyd opens the night with his precocious Old Age music at 6pm.

Saturday day at 2pm Stone Brewery (yum!) is having a beer tasting for the beer club. If you wanna join the club come on by. You can get details here.

Saturday at 7pm we have Illuminate 2010 - Winter BellyDance Gala! BellyDance Show and Hafla with Phoenix & Yallah! $6 Adults and $5 for kids under 10. These are always filled to the brim so come early to get a seat. After the Hafla, at 10pm we have the return of Pawn Ticket Trio, a fantastic horn-driven lounge band that does covers of everything from Abba to Zappa. $5.

Tonight, Thursday, Jan. 21, after trivia, at 9p, we have a couple cool bands from Boulder, Portal and Free Radt. Portal has shades of both Tool and Portishead, if you can imagine that combo, with lots of interesting time changes and a little bit of freak out. $5.

Heads up. Starting Feb. 13 we'll have ZUMBA classes at the D Note Saturdays 10:30 - 11:30 with Dia. $8. All levels and ages welcome. ZUMBA fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a fun work out.

Love to see you soonest,

D scribe

Please Read This

that's how the page started
no salutation
no dear or hello or
I was thinking of you
please read this
but then there was no more
a blank paper page
that on a computer
would have been
an empty screen
a sky
would have been cloudless
at the movies
there'd have been no movie
how do you explain disappeared urgency
how do you explain
what doesn't follow
it seemed terrible
yet something to have been expected--
surf sounds, wind sounds,
what makes worldlessness so painful
and so normal
the word please
it covers it all
we can explain the absent this
explain what can't be read
but not the please
we can explain
so much of everything
but not please
not here
