Malcognitas will be there.
Citizen Fury is booked as well.
Troy DeRoche will play the flute Native American Style, and his wife Liz will tell a story.
Willow Chang will sing or dance, I'm not sure which yet.
It's going to be a hellatios show, and the last one for a bit, I think. We have to take a break to work on the pilot edititing, then there is all the Holiday hubub. So, come while you still can and lets go nuts. There won't be any "official" filming. It may be January before the show happens again.

The Amazing TJ
Troy DeRoche will be in from the island of Hawai'i to deliver native American flute music medicine on the 19th of November:
"De Roche is the epitome of pure beauty in sound" Expressing the traditional values and the spiritual nature of Native American people though music is the goal of Native American flautist Troy "Good Medicine" De Roche. An enrolled member of the Blackfeet Nation from Heart Butte Montana, Troy is internationally recognized for his original compositions. He was the first Native American composer to be placed under contract by Zomba Music in London England and was selected by Extreme Music' for their World Music Series. His music has been featured in numerous films world wide. His recordings on the Song Stick label have been consistent sellers. Troy plays from the heart without synthesizer or sampling so the true voice of the flute may be heard.
Liz De Roche has been telling stories since childhood. She is also a published writer and a bead artist. Much of her inspiration comes from her Métis heritage. She and Troy are the organizers of the Hilo Inter-Tribal PowWow held each Memorial Day weekend on the Big Island. This is one of the largest free events held on the island of Hawaii where everyone can share in the culture and traditions of Native America.

We filmed footage for the pilot last night.
Esperitu Libre covered Ooklas spot and did a fine job of it.
I sit on the couch on the stage through the whole show. The latin rhythims were in the hips of Cheryl Bartlet (vocalist for the band) and were moving her very effectively. She turned and caught me appreciating her physical interpretation of the music, then smiled and pointed at me crooking her finger in the come hither manner. I politely declined by shaking my head violently left and right. She wouldn't be denied and persisted as the music played hyptnotically. I again demured by trying to climb behind the couch, but I couldn't break eye contact. Against my will I ceased climbing over the couch and found myself drawn to her. She took my hands and gave instructions and I did my best to follow. I was terrified, close to mortified. but I moved. I think the crowd cheered. I don't remember. I was having a near death experience. She was kind when she saw my terror and told me to spin her so the pressure was off my lack of rhythm.
Yep. We had to be filming last night.
Next weeks line up coming up...
