...is coming Saturday, and Machine Project has a solution. The gallery/nerve center plans to split the holiday. Lucky-in-loves have their event on Saturday and those who are sad and blue can suffer through Saturday and then lick their wounds openly at Machine on Sunday.
Dear Friends, Lucky in love? We have a romantic (and free) Valentine’s Day concert for you! Please join us at 8pm on Saturday Feb 14th for a concert by PremaSoul, the ongoing collaboration between classically trained Indian musician Sheela Bringi and jazz musician Clinton Patterson.
Less lucky in love? We have a music show full of sad breakup songs for you to attend with other people who like sad breakup songs. Please join us Sunday Feb 15th at 8pm for a tragic post valentine's day evening of songs on the topics of breakups, heartbreak, affliction and regret. Crying encouraged, BYO Hanky, Free. Featuring Christian Cummings, Corey Fogel, John Hogan, and Emily Lacy.
Which sounds sad but fulfilling. I've always preferred a tragic tale to songs in the key of G. Who doesn't? (Please do not respond!)
But that's not all:
Also, on Sunday night one lucky Machine Project member will be declared the winner of our Musical Trip to the Dentist contest with the lovely Emily Lacy. It's not too late to enter. Details here.
In any case, it's suitably brilliant that Machine not only dares to face the dark side of Valentine's Day but plans to do something about it, program-wise. Without disavowing the candy hearts that we all love to see and not eat. You're brave, Machine!
