October Minnesota shows - what's yr pleasure?

I'll be singing at three late October shows in the Twin Cities - besides singing at the People's Plaza - downtown - as part of the encampment for OccupyMN.  If you are interested in helping with facilitation, teach-ins, classes, or otherwise - please come join us at the People's plaza.  Agendas are made at 5pm, the General Assembly is at 7pm nightly.

So in addition to coming hear me trade echoes with the Government Center, you might wanna check out one of these other spots - w/ more ceiling, intimacy and amplification!
