D Note love letter 6/21/12

D Face,

Hello friends, it's good to meet you here, figuratively speaking. Hopefully we'll see you soon, literally.

We heard from a few of you that liked the weekend's music laid out in a table. And even though it is less "love letter" like, we're happy to oblige.

Geeks Who Drink trivia quiz.

Centersphere (indie rock. Free.)

Evan Wheeler

Drew Schofield Band $5

Blind Child (blues rock) $5

Trust No One (heavy classic rock) $5

Zumba $8

Serenade In Blue (big band) $5

In Due Time, Hot Cheeze Soup, Color $5

Schofield and Blind Child are tried and true D Note regulars. Serenade In Blue is just good old fashioned Big Band music. In Due Time is one of our most favorite local bands, super tasty music. Usually they play later at night, so it'll be nice to have them earlier for a change. Hot Cheeze Soup and Color are indie rock bands of the local variety.

A reminder that swing lessons have started back up on Wednesdays at 7:30p. Next Tuesday we have: Henriksen Amps Presents: Sean McGowan's Jazz Guitar Night. Free.

And that's the news. Now for a different kind of news...

Extra Credit: William Carlos Williams is one of the key figures of poetry in the first half of the 20th century. Here's the memorable end of a very long poem of his called "Of asphodel, that greeny flower"...

 Of asphodel, that greeny flower,   I come, my sweet,     to sing to you! My heart rouses   thinking to bring you news     of something that concerns you   and concerns many men.  Look at     what passes for the new. You will not find it there but in   despised poems.     It is difficult to get the news from poems   yet men die miserably every day     for lack of what is found there.   Hear me out     for I too am concerned and every man   who wants to die at peace in his bed     besides.
