In the words of Ma Ja Ka:
This is my last HURRAH! in Philly, and on the east coast. At least for a little while. I’ll be moving out to Oakland, CA, saying farewell to winter slumber and huzzah to Cali sunshine. On April 8th I’ll be embarking on a quintessential poetry tour, so I figured I should have a blast off party to get me there. I’ll have books and other merch for sale and read some erotica for you all to get down with, as well as some travel fictions to get us all on the road together. It’ll be like a magic bus ride across the countryside, I promise.I’ve also assembled a small ensemble of beatniks and circus folk to provide us with some fun entertainment for the evening. Check it out!$5 suggested donation (this’ll help me pay for gas in my upcoming journey)
First 5 to donate will get a SIGNED COPY of the new release, Fire. Sun. Salutation. !!If you’re unable to make it for this good bye, good vibes party, that’s okay. There’s other ways you can help.
You can Hire Me To Write Poetry for you here:

chaos poetry by Julia Kallisti
blues music by Andrew Galati
time traveling by Visitor Ten

Eric + Erica is a duo making dream pop music with instruments and voices. They began in Oakland, CA, currently live in Durham, NC, and tour all the time. Their music is intimate, and you are invited.“Dream Pop” is the perfect descriptor for Eric + Erica’s sound…The ambient, twinkling aura created by the musicians’ tools of the trade — Eric on piano and Erica strumming an autoharp — warmly embraces Fink’s goosebump-worthy vocals and intimate, bewitching melodies, with Kuhn providing perfectly placed low-register harmonies.”-City Beat
From Philadelphia starring local sweetheart Emily Ana Zeitlyn (The Weeds), uses extreme dynamic and darling melody to whisper to the sadder side of your soul.”
Wild Orphan is a band from West Philadelphia, comprised of Kristen Sylvester and Gregg Might. Working up to music and lyrics that are informed by the band’s evident love for emotional Americana and lead member Kristen Sylvester’s mystical and spiritual leanings, the live performance is an intentional experiment filled with a deep sense of energy and enthusiasm, crossing the boundary of genre and stepping in to the house of vulnerability. Will you come inside? It is our hope that the sounds feel warm in your ears while on the stay or on the go. It is a moniker and mask for storytelling; one of the tools we have discovered for connecting with the world.
