*Floating Room (Portland), Gray Pop https://floatingroom.bandcamp.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/floatingroom/  "Despite all the talk about leashes and parks, "Dog" captures the very human experience of feeling limited by someone else. Led by Maya Stoner, Floating Room's excellent 2016 debut, Sunless, sifted through the emotional wreckage of an abusive relationship. False Baptism does too, but with clearer eyes—processing trauma can take a lifetime, so obviously, it can also take multiple records."
**Drowse (Portland), sound sculpture https://drowse.bandcamp.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/drowseportland/  "This installation showcases four found objects that have been re-engineered into interactive sculptural instruments. The artists use these objects to create sounds and explore their natural surroundings. All music has been created by the artists and was recorded in Skagaströnd using the sculptures, a field recorder, and the computer. Video projections recorded while at living NES Artist Residency around certain regions of desolate Northern Iceland."
***No Bootstraps (Santa Cruz), satire pop geared toward fellow cogs, breaking the circle, fighting the police, and so much glitter it's coming out of your eyes. https://nobootstraps.bandcamp.com/

And some other info to let you know about!!!

*The Fábrica has moved to the front of the Hub at 703 Pacific (now sharing a wall with SubRosa).  Here's their new hours "We are currently not having Tuesday hours, but have added Sunday hours. Our Thursday and Saturday hours have shifted one hour earlier. We hope these hours fit well for people! Our current schedule is: Monday 4-7 // Thursday 3-6 // Saturday 3-6 // Sunday 2-5!"  Find out more about this great project at https://www.facebook.com/thefabrica/

*Next weekend is the beginning of the Run4Salmon, the prayer run led by Winnemum Wintu to restore native salmon to their ancestral spawning grounds in the McCloud River. It starts with a ceremony and walk from Sogorea Te/Glenn Cove in the bay area on Sat the 15th. More info: http://www.run4salmon.org/

*Next week—September 8 to 15, 2018—is a giant national/international mobilization to confront the "Global Climate Action Summit" (GCAS) in San Francisco, Sept 12-14, which is a gathering of politicians and business people hosted by Governor Brown, focused on market-based, top-down false solutions to climate change such as carbon trading schemes (while not addressing emissions at source or targeting fossil fuel industries.). In response, multiple coalitions have mounted parallel efforts to disrupt/confront GCAS while also putting forth an array of visions of what real community-led solutions to confronting climate change can look like, based on the leadership of frontline and indigenous communities most impacted by resource extraction and climate change. Local groups are also taking advantage of the large influx of organizers in the bay area to take action around issues such as the Oakland Coal Terminal, North Bay refineries, and the West Berkeley Shellmound. https://www.facebook.com/subrosaproject/posts/10156752520230719?__tn__=K-R

Plus a message from the Hub (The Hub is the space where SubRosa is located, of which we are just one of many projects at the Hub...which also includes the Fábrica, the Bike Church, PedX and more!!!)

Hello. I'm again asking for your financial support (You can click on this link to go the Hub website and donation page http://www.santacruzhub.org/donate.html). We have some exciting changes at the Hub Community Center, and along with that came some complications. Here's the story... the Fábrica is moving to the front office and new folk from Sanctuary Santa Cruz are moving into their old space. Unfortunately, there was a major plumbing issue which delayed the moves, so the old Fábrica space wasn't cleared to move into...so we at the Hub are short on that rent. We'd ideally like to raise $500 which would cover half a month for the old Fábrica space and some of the money can also go to help the Fábrica folk pay for their current space, which they've not been able to use yet (they're putting it together now!). And all donations are tax exempt as the Hub is a501(c)3 non-profit organization. And thanks for any financial support you can offer and please help spread the word. -j!

And in the evening! 6pm!

Small Spells // closing art show reception

"Small Spells" is a collection of paintings by Abacus Corvus. Each collaboration offers an image and intention, and the viewer's invited to use them like a lens to focus energy, or like a prism to broadcast blessings widely.

Abacus Corvus is the creative collaboration of Corina Dross and Jocelyn (Jo) Mosser—illustrators, writers, healers, sisters, and good friends.

Corina Dross will be present at the closing reception on August 31st, with hand-sewn archival prints available that day only.  https://www.facebook.com/events/492114091287147/

**************
The Waters Connect Us // In Northern California, indigenous nations are fighting massive infrastructure projects that threaten their waters, fish, and indigenous lifeways. Increased water diversions from the Sacramento River watershed to Southern California cities and farmland threaten to drive Chinook salmon and other at-risk species to extinction. The Run4Salmon is a 300-mile prayer journey led by the Winnemem Wintu Tribe that follows the migration route of salmon from the San Francisco Bay to the McCloud River. This year's journey will take place September 15th-30th and your participation is invited. Learn more: http://run4salmon.org Follow #Run4Salmon on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter


In the Monterey Bay area, the Amah Mutsun tribe is waging an all-out campaign to stop a proposed sand and gravel quarry that would desecrate Juristac, one of their most important sacred places. Learn more at http://protectjuristac.org
