What a weird year this has been, and on so many fronts. We hope this finds you all healthy and surviving all that we are in the midst of. So much loss, so much chaos - and luckily, so much creativity.
It's Murder Ballads time! One of our sorrows has been the inability to safely gather and play music in person, but through magic (yes, the magic of an app) the gals of Lynch have recorded a tune to be part of the annual (virtual) Murder Ballads bash this Saturday night. We'll be once again in really great company with many of our fantastic Bay Area musician pals joining in for the fun. Huge thanks to the inimitable Paul Pot for working his own magic to make it happen. Here's to supporting the Starry Plough, and for the eventual and magnificent return of live music and togetherness!
In the meantime, mask up, wash your hands, stay home and please, please VOTE!!!
From the Plough:
Tune in Halloween night, Saturday Oct 31, for a virtual gathering to benefit the Starry Plough in Berkeley which has been severely impacted by the Covid crisis. For many years when starting out, many of us would not have had any gigs at all were it not for the faithful Starry Plough. Tune in for a collection of Halloween songs about murder, misery, death and despair and consider making a donation to keep them afloat.
The link for the show will be found here on Halloween - this Saturday night:
