Hello Wise Owls,
Thank-you to all who came out to support the Second Helpings Harvest event (a QueenBeeMusic fan won a trip for two to Sonoma Valley for a wine tasting jaunt--congratulations CR!) and the Susan Cowsill benefit show.
Marigold Clothing Store (across from the Patio) was a sponsor of Harvest and gave Susan a huge gift certificate for new clothes. Susan said it was the first time she’d felt normal in months. Ahhh, the power of retail shopping.
Pop your head in Marigold and thank Linda for her generosity. And the clothes are amazing!
l. Sam Shaber, this Friday 10/21 8pm, the Indy Hostel
ll. Middletown, also this Friday 10/21 10pm, The Upper Room
I’ll see you at the shows…decked out in Marigold clothes, as usual!

The Indy Hostel
4903 Winthrop Ave
NYC singer and songwriter, Sam Shaber will be performing at the Indy Hostel. I always credit Sam with marking CATH as a stop on the underground railroad of touring musicians. The Hostel is a great place to see a show; it is like sitting in your own living room with the musician playing a few feet from you. A great non-smoking, all ages listening room.

The Upper Room
(above the Broad Ripple Steak House)
The amazing guitar player Aaron Stroup, based in Austin and working in a New Orleans relief kitchen for the last six weeks is taking a break to reunite with band mates, Tad Armstrong and Stasia Demos. The Upper Room features terrific martinis and warm hospitality—Jeff Sample was just named Best Bartender in the latest NUVO. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…if I could just listen to one singer for the rest of my life, it would be Tad Armstrong. Come out and congratulate Tad on his great Chicago Marathon run, giggle with Stasia and coo over pictures of Silas, and drink some whiskey with Aaron. All three of the Middletowners are terrific singers and songwriters. See www.tadarmstrong.net for more information
