At SubRosa Thurs. 3/26-Thurs. 4/2!

and later that Sun evening at 7-8:30pm:  Info Night for Alix Tichelman.  The presentation will cover the case against Alix Tichelman and explain the various players involved in keeping her locked up in the Santa Cruz County Jail. Alix Tichelman was arrested on July 4th, 2014, by the Santa Cruz Police Department in connection with the death of a man named Forrest Hayes, a Google executive. Six months prior to her arrest, Tichelman and Forrest Hayes decided to meet up on the night of November 22nd, 2013 for a rendezvous on his yacht in the Santa Cruz harbor. After asking Tichelman to inject him with heroin, Hayes went into cardiac arrest and passed out. Tichelman left the yacht and was ultimately captured. She is now being demonized as a hardened seductress and killer by the SCPD and the media. With all of the negative publicity surrounding her name, we hope to shed a little more light on the situation. Please come to our event and get informed about the case.

-Tue, March 31, 7:30-10:00pm:  A Wonderful Night of Music! with Of the West (SC) // Wing & Claw (SLC) // Matty & Chelsea (SC)

-Thu, April 2, 7:30pm – 10:30pm:  First Thursday Open Mic!  Open mic is a space for you to share yourself in anyway that feels right to you. You can read a story, poem or journal entry that feels important to you. You can sing or play a song you are excited about. You can make other people act out weird or funny things you think of. You can ask questions you need help answering. You can rant about things that piss you off. And you can just come and soak it all up. Donations directly benefit this community-supported space. Signups for performance at 7:30 fill up quickly. Bring your creativity and artistic genius.

Also, from indybay.org/santacruz, Statewide Coordinated Actions To End Solitary Confinement Begin, including in Santa Cruz with folks from Sin Barras and others.  Read more at the link to the article.

Really Really Free Market

Saturday, March 21st, noon-3pm


No money. No trades. Everything is free. This market is based on a gift-economy and thinks capitalism is terrible. Bring food to share. Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines...your free box). Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki...). Come and take what you can use and say thanks! We will have folks to check in with as you arrive. First come first served, space may be limited.  If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.

And here is a sneak preview of an event taking place Sunday, March 29th.

Info Night for Alix Tichelman:  The presentation will cover the case against Alix Tichelman and explain the various players involved in keeping her locked up in the Santa Cruz County Jail.  Alix Tichelman was arrested on July 4th, 2014, by the Santa Cruz Police Department in connection with the death of a man named Forrest Hayes, a Google executive.
