Faith at Vox Pop - this Saturday! Plus 3 other fun things to do
I was absolutely tickled to get a message from co-worker & friend Felice saying that her band, Faith, is going to be performing this Saturday at my favorite neighborhood leftist/socialist/communist (yet humanely & intelligently capitalist) coffee shop/indy bookstore/performance space Vox Pop!
She works with me at the Really Big Children's Publishing Company - but the music is what she DOES. Know what I mean?
Faith will be rocking Vox Pop acoustically (seriously, the joint wouldn't have enough room for their sound if they plugged in & I mean that in a very very good way) on Saturday at 9 P.M.
Excerpt from Felice's email with further details -
Also on the bill are Courtney Lee Adams Jr and my dear dear friend and comrade deerfrance with her group Extra Virgin Mary. Here's the info:

A couple of other fun things to do this weekend (and I'm hoping I can work out a way to do all 3) -
Xris, the Flatbush Gardener, has full details on Green It! Grow It! Eat It! at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Saturday during the day. With my penchant for growing at least some of my own food, discovered last year thanks to people at Sebago (y'all know who you are!), this sounds interesting.
On Sunday, as I mentioned the other day, me and a few other Sebago folks will be participating in the Long Island Paddlesport Symposium. Day's events including a chilly chilly rolling demo - what were we thinking???!!! - and lots lots more. Personally I'm psyched 'cause I may finally get to see my friend Marcus's Ireland slideshow (unless we're scheduled at the same time, which would be just my luck).
Finally, also on Sunday (once again I can't make it, I do want to one of these days), the monthly Brooklyn Blogade gathering of the bloggers o' Brooklyn is being held in Kensington. This month's event is being hosted by Bad Girl Brooklyn. The theme, Show and Tell - readings or showings of favorite posts. I'm a little bummed I can't make it - the theme sounds like fun, and plus they're serving burek (phyllo dough filled with hot melted goat cheese...yummmmmmmmmy).
Too many fun things to do is not a bad thing, though.
