Sami and I want to let you know that we’re finally playing a show with our dear friends Blue Cranes this Sunday evening. It’s actually a three band bill with us starting off the show, followed by a band called Gojogo from Oakland (Indian-influenced drums, bass and violin from what I hear…), and then Blue Cranes, breathing life and funk into original jazz-oriented tunes. I’m going to try not to gush too much, but the Cranes are one of the greatest groups of musicians I have encountered in my life, and you’re truly doing yourself a disservice if you have not yet exposed yourself to their joyful, intoxicating music. Just Anna’s oh-so-humble opinion! :-)
Here are the details, and a beautiful original poster painted by Jeremy Dubow!
