The story in REM for June is by Alex de Grassi, guitar wizard and--who knew?--great writer, about our county's musicians and musical venues, which, as you can imagine, have been hard-hit by the current situation, with some places actually having to close down and everybody having to cancel gigs. Alex had to postpone his entire tour to promote his new album, The Bridge, which is so beautiful, btw. Listen at www.alexdegrassi.com.
Performing artists and performance spaces have been mining their deep wells of creativity to get through this bare spot in performance schedules (including me!). No gathering means no audiences, no clapping, no money, no fun. It's a great read, and I hope you will pick up your copy asap before we run out. REM can be found ALL over the county...Coast, South Coast, Anderson Valley, Over the Hill, in Willits and Ukiah. Realty offices, post offices, grocery stores, lodging places and restaurants (opening soon!)
