This month is a full of new news. Iâ€™m playing at some new places for new audiences and doing some new covers. First on deck, I really want to to tell you about my Farmer’s Market Tour. I finish up the tour on Sunday in Annapolis. Check out my blog http://www.queenearth.com/2011/10/queenearths-farmers-market-tour/. It has been a bountiful summer/fall. I got my first Farmer’s Market gig because a friend made a referral. Someone liked my music and they told some else and before I knew it, I was on a little mini tour and rubbing elbows with the best farmers and food vendors in the area. Big thank you to everyone involved!
Like any artist/business woman, I’m always looking for new ways to get my name out there. All of you have been great with the word of mouth help and telling your friends about QueenEarth. Because of you, I am able to continue doing what I do. All of the gigs this month are due to you spreading the love. Thank you for that and props to these new establishments. It is a New November!
- First off, my weekly open mic is at a new time. These past few weeks, weâ€™ve seen some momentum and we want more folks to come through. The people have spoken and asked for a later time. Done!! The weekly Wednesday Bohemian Dinner Party is now from 6-8pm at Bohemian Coffee House. Â It is BYOB and FREE to listen or perform. Â They also have great food, vegan and vegetarian options, and they support local businesses. Check them out at http://bmorebohemian.com/ I canâ€™t be there this week so my homegirl Teporah is filling in for me. Sheâ€™s excited because they have a piano! Check out her music and stop by! Teporah is a queen of music in this city and always supports artists, whether they’re local or passing through on tour. When I began my journey, she was my oracle. I’m paying it forward and asking that you give her a listen (http://teporah.blogspot.com/). You will not be disappointed!
- On Wednesday, Iâ€™m playing at Joe Squared Station North for the first time. That is why I cannot be at my open mic this week 🙁 but props to Teporah for filling in while Iâ€™m gone. I will be accompanied by my baby bruh Santendrix 😉 I play the 7-9pm dinner set on Wednesday November, 3, 2011. For Joe Squared, come hungry. The food is great and Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ll like some of the new covers. This show is FREE!! http://www.joesquared.com/station-north/
- For my Baltimore fans on the Eastside of the city, Iâ€™m playing at Chef Macâ€™s on the 19th. They heard me at the Hamilton-Lauraville Market!
Iâ€™ve heard, from one of my musician friends, and my favorite Bassplayer Ian “Spaceman” Trusheim,Â that this is one of his favorite venues in the city. He says that food is outrageous. Itâ€™s my first time so wish me luck 😉 http://www.chefmacs.com/ If they like me, maybe I’ll come back with my band!
- Iâ€™m returning to Fells Point for November at Riptide by the Bay on the 22nd and 29th. Come around 8:30pm.
Iâ€™ll be there for a few hours with Dan Sam of Funk Friday and his magical djembe hands 😀 http://riptidebythebay.net/ This connection at Riptide began over a year ago at the Austin Ellis’ Austin Grill open mic. Remember that spot? It was the best open mic during the summer of 2010!
As always, Iâ€™m rockin at Terra CafÃ© (101 E 25th Street) every Friday from 12-2pm. For more shows and information, guitar lessons, and blog updates, visit my website at http://www.queenearth.com. I’ll be posting new stories periodically to document my adventures! Special shout out to Anna K. Stone for taking the awesome photos at the Gutierrez Memorial Walk. Thank you all for your continued support. I look forward to seeing you out and about.
Live. Laugh. Love.
