D Note love letter 7/12/12

D Notables,

We have more exciting news to share. First of all the $5 cover for Friday night's show will be waved just for those of you on this D Mail list! The password is "Sparkly Rainbows". (We should mention that that password was Diandra's idea.) FREE show Friday night just for you!!

Also we are starting a Kids Eat Free Night on Monday nights. With the purchase of an adult meal one child (12 and under) eats free. So bring in the family Monday nights to the family friendly D Note!

Here's the lowdown for the weekend


Dan Polizzi

Marlo Acoustic set

Dino's Band (rock and roll voo doo)

Snake Oil Band (alt country rock) $5


Zumba $8

Family Concert w/ Sunday Girl (80's music from Blondie to Yaz). $5

Gipsy Moon (bluegrass featuring kids of Vince Hermann) $7

Free form yoga lead by Nicki Viera w/ live music by Melissa Ivey, Adam DeGraff and friends. Donations accepted for local charities.

Big Muddy (blues/acoustic). Free. (no baby boogie due to Blues and BBQ fest)

On Saturday we are also co-sponsoring (with Scrumptious and HOTA) an outdoor concert across the street from the D Note from 5pm-9pm, featuring the band "RePlay", food, booths, beer/wine, and kids activities!!

The Blues and BBQ benefit is happening Sunday (benefiting Habitat For Humanity.) They used to do this at the D Note for years, but the last few years they have moved it out onto Grandview and it has blown up. We'll have our own blues band in the D Note too, free, acoustic, so come on down.

There's a bundle of good news for everyone,

Extra Credit: Here's a poem by Adam D, from back when he was driving cab in S.F., CA. (Lady Day, if you didn't already know, is what some affectionately called Billy Holiday. The D Note has a pizza named Lady Day in her honor.)

Wild Blue Yonda

I took Yonda to Berkeley half-rate.
She told me she was running
from a trick because she didn't
want to "hurt his fillin."

She asked if she could
smoke rock on the bridge.
I told her to be careful.
She told me why she chose crack.
She matter-of-factly said
she was a lifetime addict.

Somewhere in the winding conversation
she came out with her philosophy,

"Life is a like a maze.
Do you know what a maze is?
It's a puzzle.
There's only one way in
and only one way out.
You spend your life
figuring out how to make it
through. Hell's when you're
doing bad. Heaven's when
you're doing good."

She asked me to turn
the radio up. There was
a slow R&B ballad on
KMEL Jams. Yonda sang
along with pitch perfect passion,
like some latter day day Lady Day.
I didn't want to breathe.
And when she left I didn't
want her to leave.
