Can’t Hardly Wait!

…In Washington, with a few exciting events planned…

Opportunity Presbyterian Church Centennial Event!!

Sunday, June 10, 1p

It’s a great privilege for me to play at what I still consider my home church (even though I’m 3000 miles away most of the time). They host live music the second Sunday of each month, and I’m Miss June! It will be a coffeehouse-style performance, just girl and guitar, making as much thought-provoking noise as possible.

The Jacklin Arts and Cultural Center!!

Friday, June 22, 7p

This is good because not only will there be Great Original Americana Music (courtesy of this girl and her awesome band!), there will also be Great Americana Consumables: It’s a $15 ticket, but only $5 more if you want the “picnic package,” which includes 2 hot dogs, a beer and a bag of chips. Not to mention “Olivia Brownlee and the Gin ‘n’ Tonics” with a lot of brand new music = Exciting times!! Dancing and singing along strongly encouraged. Call 208.457.8950 for tickets.

Nectar Tasting Room!!

Saturday, June 23, 6.30-9.30p

If you’re not already a wine enthusiast, Josh Wade will guide you – AND he just purchased the 1000 sq ft next door to ensure that there won’t be any more raves while his earnest singer-songwriters try to make sensitive music to the winos! He’s such a nice man… (PS: The place is also available to rent for events, at quite reasonable rates!)

Can’t hardly wait!!


At Johnny D’s

Some of you have gotten the memo already, but on May 5 between 4 and 7pm, I am going to be a chick singer. On May 5, Johnny D’s house band is going to learn 21 songs by 7 different chicks, and I will be among them boasting 3 originals. It will be my honour to play on such a renowned stage with such fine professionals on a Saturday evening. Here is the facebook thingy:
