  • Guitar practice is going to be interesting tomorrow.  Sunny day at home.  House projects galore.  Processed umpteen pounds of peaches that @hellagela brought me. (Thanks, bebe.) Pits went into brandy, as taught to me by @embodyworkla, flesh in hunks went into the dehydrator for fun winter fruity bits.  Upon attempting to see if any were dry yet, one thought I was getting fresh and barking SLASHED ME.  So much sanguinating.  But, as we all know, body holes are funny (even the ones that aren’t usually there) so there’s always a silver lining.  Be careful out there, kids.

  • Aside from just being a big ole dyke in the world, happy in my own skin and loving women, (which is to say: regular life, continued in June) THIS is why I’m doing for pride: playing alongside other LGBTQ performers in a queer-owned business in support of a queer organization.  Unless it involved lube in a bucket, I’m not sure how much pridier it could get.  So!

Join us at @pinholecoffee this Thursday (June 20) for the Bernal Heights Summer Stroll in San Francisco. Sweet Genesis Fermin @hellagela  and I will both be there playing separate sets, but there may well be a duet or two snuck in there just for funsies.  Sharing the stage with us or just Morgan and Levi booth. Many of the businesses participating in the stroll (Pinhole included) are matching, donating, and otherwise supporting @lyricsf.  Let’s celebrate pride together!

  • Neon Razberries was inspired by “To Have Without Holding,” a poem by Marge Piercy. Her mention of a glowing neon raspberry refers to the glow a person embodies when choosing to love fearlessly in the public eye. .
Our deepest intention with this song is to honor the hard work of all edge-walking sluts who are in healthy long-term commitments with lovers, friends, and  most importantly themselves. Thank you all for lighting up our world like a glowing neon raspberry. .
To Have Without Holding.
.
Learning to love differently is hard,
love with the hands wide open, love
with the doors banging on their hinges,
the cupboard unlocked, the wind
roaring and whimpering in the rooms
rustling the sheets and snapping the blinds
that thwack like rubber bands
in an open palm.
.
It hurts to love wide open
stretching the muscles that feel
as if they are made of wet plaster,
then of blunt knives, then
of sharp knives.
.
It hurts to thwart the reflexes
of grab, of clutch ; to love and let
go again and again. It pesters to remember
the lover who is not in the bed,
to hold back what is owed to the work
that gutters like a candle in a cave
without air, to love consciously,
conscientiously, concretely, constructively.
.
I can’t do it, you say it’s killing
me, but you thrive, you glow
on the street like a neon raspberry,
You float and sail, a helium balloon
bright bachelor’s button blue and bobbing
on the cold and hot winds of our breath,
as we make and unmake in passionate
diastole and systole the rhythm
of our unbound bonding, to have
and not to hold, to love
with minimized malice, hunger
and anger moment by moment balanced.

  • Last night was one for the books.  The Poster Room filled with friends, new and old, listening and singing along with me and these keys and these strings, then a tear-laughingly beautiful set by the one and only @pattygmusic - joined by some pretty joyful friends. (Also her band is gnarly good.  GNARLY GOOD.) All with my Best Girl,@stmartinlynne, in my arms. 
What the fuck. 
This life.

  • Being a new dog parent has really eaten into the time for music, so the last few posts have been a little late. This weeks track is an older one about learning from failed relationships and letting go. It’s called “Thoughts Upon Waking” - a rambling tale about trying to come to terms with the end of a relationship without blame. The pic was taken by @cecicecii back in 2015. We will be back at Neck of the Woods this Friday with a limited run of cassettes by @stereolunchcassettes. It’ll be good to see some familiar faces ❤️❤️❤️ link in bio for the track

  • I turned 30 last week! 🥳
At 25 if you would have told me that in five years I’d be performing around town and recording an EP I would have been like, uhhh who are you talking about?? Not this girl🤷🏽‍♀️. I had never performed for anyone!! +
When I first saw the lineup for @womensmusic fest my initial thought was what am I doing up there with these insanely talented professional musicians!? I listened to each one and was blown away by their diversity and confidence.
But then I thought about everything I’ve been through that got me to this stage and I realized not only am I ready to be here but I’m ready to poor my heart and soul into this. It’s time to stop being scared that I’m not good enough. It doesn’t matter that I’m new to music, ya gotta let your soul siiiing girl!🗣

I cant wait to share the night with @maayanofficial @hollymiranda @lisaazzolino @lilabluemusic @samanthamargret @tea_sound @elayneryan @greeneyesrae @katvanmorgan @mije_michellejessica and more! 👭👭👭👭👭
I’m on 7-730 and you can buy $16 tickets in my bio! Let me know if you can make it! 💗💗💗💗
