update 3/8/12

D Port,

How, hi are you?

We hope you are sweller than a monster wave off the North Shore of Oahu.

Tonight, for your information, we have a cool indie rock band at 9pm (after trivia) called Black Postcards. Send one to yourself. Free.

Tomorrow night, Friday March 9, we have old school gothic folk, then bluegrass, then rockabilly, a fine progression. Good Neighbor (lovely gothic folk) plays at 5pm (free). Then Broke Bridge (bluegrass) plays at 7pm, followed by Brent Loveday (of Reno Divorce), followed by Phantom 88 (rockabilly). Brent Loveday is one of our favorite crooners, he writes fantastic rockabilly-tinged songs and performs them with suave panache. $7.

Saturday at 3pm we have a swing dance lesson + Serenade In Blue Big Band (at 4pm) all for ONLY $5.

Saturday night we have our smooth friend Drew Schofield playing with his band. Drew will be followed by Taking Issue and Half In The Bag, two local solid rock bands. $5.

Sunday morning yoga at 10am is good for what ails you. Taught by Nickie Viera, with live music by Melissa Ivey and Adam DeGraff.

Mondays we have a new open stage host. Our last host, Jay Ryan, is taking a break to focus on writing and recording his own music. Our best to him and much appreciation for five wondeful years of hosting. The new host will be Turtle. Some of you may know Turtle as he has been around helping out at the D Note for almost a decade now. Sign up is still at 6:30p, so come and show us your musical wares.

Next Tuesday night at 9pm we have a really good Southern Rock band from The North; Clovis Mann, from Ontario Canada. Clovis Mann is another one of those great bands that flit through the D Note on on an off night, on their way through town, and blow minds. There will be yet another one of those the following Tuesday after next, a roots reggae outfit called SNRGY.

The Clamdaddys return to Wednesday nights after a little break. Glad to have them back. A reminder that we have $5 swing dance lessons with a fantastic teacher, Lark Mervine, on Wednesdays at 7pm.

That's all the pews that's knit to front,

Extra Credit: This rather remarkable gnostic "poem" is from the Nag Hammadi ms. found in 1945 (written in Greek circa 150 AD).


I was sent forth from the power,
and I have come to those who reflect upon me,
and I have been found among those who seek after me.
Look upon me, you who reflect upon me,
and you hearers, hear me.
You who are waiting for me, take me to yourselves.
Do not be ignorant of me anywhere or any time. Be on your guard!

For I am the first and the last.
I am the honored one and the scorned one.
I am the whore and the holy one.
I am the wife and the virgin.
I am the mother and the daughter.
I am the members of my mother.
I am the barren one
and many are her sons.
I am she whose wedding is great,
and I have not taken a husband.
I am the midwife and she who does not bear.
I am the solace of my labor pains.
I am the bride and the bridegroom,
and it is my husband who begot me.
I am the mother of my father
and the sister of my husband
and he is my offspring.
I am the silence that is incomprehensible
and the idea whose remembrance is frequent.
I am the voice whose sound is manifold
and the word whose appearance is multiple.
I am the utterance of my name.

Why, you who hate me, do you love me,
and hate those who love me?
You who deny me, confess me,
and you who confess me, deny me.
You who tell the truth about me, lie about me,
and you who have lied about me, tell the truth about me.
You who know me, be ignorant of me,
and those who have not known me, let them know me.
