NORA SEZ, IM ON UR PEEYANO KEYZ, PREMIERING UR KITTEH CONCERTO. I CAN HAZ PERFORMANCE AT OJAI?
(Here's the BBC report, in English.)
I'm driving 360 miles down the coast to the Ojai Music Festival today, which this year is under the artistic direction of eighth blackbird. Appropriately, there's already plenty of Tweeting going on there, where last night's concertgoers heard Thierry de Mey's awesome Musique de Tables and George Crumb's Music for a Summer Evening. A nameless entity known only as @OjaiFestivals seems to be particularly excited about tonight's premiere of a music/theater work called Slide by Steve Mackey, performed by the 'birds, Mackey and Rinde Eckert. Click here for the full weekend-long festival program.
Time to get on the road. You can expect occasional communiqués @thestandingroom KTHXBAI!!!
