Oh, This is our favorite New Year’s Eve gig. Little Rockport lights up, and there is music and good food and people having fun everywhere. We go on at 8:00 and again at 9:00.
The second WW will be bigger! and better! than ever. Held deep in the woods at Grontonwood Camp in Groton MA, WW features classes, workshops, concerts and fire-light jam sessions, and always in our own easily and inclusive SAMW way. Bring your snurf board, too: there’s a little hill we can slide on in the snow. Staff TBA, but here’s a hint: Lorraine will be there!
Fiends for the Bean o’ Caffeine! That’s the theme for this fun-filled concert evening in Watertown. Naturally we’ll also look at politics and religion; science and spirituality; wisdom and folly; and the art of laughing and crying at the same time.
There will be a festive spread of delicious and entertaining holiday fare from Central America before the show, and very repeat very good coffee, of course.
December 14, 8 p.m., at 35 Church St., Watertown, MA, for El Tremedal Coffeehouse. http://tremedal.org/
