Fri: Art Opening // Sat: Really Free Market (rain postpones) // Mon: & Tues: & Thurs: Shows!!! // And More!!!



-Friday, April 5th, 6 - 9m:  First Friday: Protest Banner Lending Library (happening mainly in the Fábrica space and the door between the Fábrica & SubRosa will be open! A banner will be displayed in SubRosa too!!! So come to both spaces for the banner-art, snacks and good company!)

 A celebration of the Fábrica Collective's ongoing practice of hosting community banner making workshops and providing material support for other groups to make banners for protests, demonstrations, and other community events. This exhibition will share the significant banner collection we have accumulated since the inception of this series in 2016, documented in an organized, accessible "lending library" catalog, allowing for both the stories connected to these banners, and the banners themselves, to be collectively held.


For the opening, an assortment of community-sewn banners will be on display, along with the catalogue and lending system, and a participatory banner sewing activity. For the rest of the month we will put up a different banner on display every week.  https://www.facebook.com/events/2650088651674142/

-Monday, April 8th: Distort Show!

Yeah. Yup!

-Tuesday, April 9th, 7pm:  Cactus Bloom Collective: The Water Witch Tour + Nat Lefkoff

♥ Join us for a dreamy, magickal evening feat. local honey Nat Lefkoff and The Effervescent and Wild Water Witches, Rowan Katz (Port Townsend), Anna Gordon (Joshua Tree), and Rowan Rain (Seattle), who are on tour down the West Coast. ♥

*Nat Lefkoff--- Rowan Rain delivers haunting dream folk with a unique acoustic sound forged by a mix of folk traditions and experimental elements. Raised in a strange and magical world by artistically inclined parents playing traditional celtic music in a gaelic speaking community of the Pacific Northwest, Rowan's music combines hints of their celtic roots with soulful siren melodies, rhythmic droning guitar lines, and darker tinged folk elements... most recent release (March 14, 2019) is a double LP project comprised of two albums - Honey-Tongued and Shadows - each a 13 track soundscape taking you deep into the dark and dreamy waters from whence they came. https://rowanrain.bandcamp.com/album/shadows 

**Anna Gordon writes ethereal folk songs laiden heavy with storyful lyrics. In an effort to express utmost vulnerability, Anna's writing speaks of intimate truths and deep, dark waters. Her voice is hauntingly beautiful, waxing and waning between brutal power and extreme delicacy, curving artfully through the landscapes her lyrics evoke. Her most recent effort, Fern Canyon, is her debut full-length album, released November 2nd, 2018 on Spirit House Records. https://annagordon.bandcamp.com/ 

***Rowan Katz is a nonbinary healer, artist, and witch born and raised in the haunted, bizarre, fairy-like dystopia that is Hollywood, Los Angeles. Influenced heavily by the sounds and scenes of their home, they are a master of cross-genre writing, and the likes of blues, punk, rock, pop, folk, and country seamlessly blend together across their musical lexicon.Their sound is vested in glittering, deep noises, utilizing the acoustic guitar as a guiding vessel for punctuating and ambient noise on one track, yet rooted in traditional folk songwriting.  Their debut album Violet, recorded and produced by Jessie Duran-Crelin in Brooklyn, NY, was released in August 2018. An alternative rock project that ranges from full band pop-rock bangers like "Octave" to acoustic, powerful confessionals such as "The Truth" and "Still Here", Violet is an ode to pain, love, recovery, and wild youth. https://rowankatz.bandcamp.com/releases 


SOBER, ALL AGES SHOW // $5-10 DONATION, No one turned away for lack of funds! // Please be aware that this is a scent free space // https://www.facebook.com/events/270750143618164/

Also happening at the Hub, in the Sanctuary Santa Cruz office, on Sunday, April 7th, 10am-1pm --- April Tenant Sanctuary Counselor Training!  Our first volunteer training was a success, and we have one more training to welcome other interested counselors!  Have breakfast with us as we learn the basics of tenants rights and counseling techniques. We need your support more than ever as rental issues have skyrocketed in the last few years. Being a tenant counselor can be a great experience for folks interested in going to law school, studying social sciences, or who have experienced tenants rights abuses themselves and want to empower others from that experience.

We can provide Spanish translation if requested beforehand. Please email/call us for accommodations or to RSVP at info@tenantsanctuary.org or (831)200-0740.

< A reminder!  Saturday, March 30th, 6 - 10pm at the MAH, DIYine: A Celebration of Homebrewing (a benefit for the Bike Church) // This year the Bike Church is hosting DIYine, a DIY brewing festival. Get a chance to taste all kinds of unique homemade drinks. The event also has hors d'oeuvres and live music, and all proceeds go to support our program.

Bubbling away under stairways, in closets, or in forsaken corners of the garage, all across the county an ancient tradition lives on: that sacred collaboration between man and microbe that converts sugars into alcohol. On Saturday, March 30th, the Bike Church is hosting an event celebrating this wondrous art.


We are pleased to announce the seventh annual DIYine (pronounced "D I Wine"), a tasting event featuring samples of homemade fruit wines, beers, mead, and soft drinks. The event will be at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History downtown. In addition to being a fun event, it's also a fund raiser, with all proceeds going to support the Bike Church.

Get a chance to sample some more traditional beers and wines, as well as unique items like plum port, loquat amaretto, orange blossom mead, and rhubarb-raisin sherry. We'll also have a selection of soft drinks like kefir, kombucha, and our famous Breath of Fire ginger ale. The event also includes hors d'oeuvres and live music.

TICKETS are sliding-scale, $20-50 in advance, mini. $25 at the door. Buy your tickets now by following the link above.
