~Saturday, Feb. 22nd, 6pm:  The Cowtown Serenaders // Kite Hands Glowing

     The Cowtown Serenaders create collage-like performances blending song, story, and performance art, using puppets, props, accordion, musical saw, and more. The current show, called "A Trip to Cowtown," features their Incredible Collapsible Magical Marionette Music Box, and was first performed as part of the Eureka Fringe Festival in 2019.  It tells the story of Peggy Pilgrim and Toe-Tapping Tommy, two wandering spirits who become friends in a world where all travel and spontaneity has been banned by the Good Government.

Daniel Nickerson and Tayloranne Finch create work as the Cowtown Serenaders to combine their interests in music, art, storytelling and performance. Their recordings and shows are characterized by acoustic sounds, natural materials, and fable-like stories, woven together to create a living tapestry of alternative Americana. Based in Arcata, CA, the group produces their work at the Sanctuary, a community art studio and residency. And 

     Kite Hands Glowing is the musical project of Nadia Lucia's melodies on the piano, on a guitar and through singing. Nadia practices energetic herbalism and teaches kindergarten and music is her way of weaving her dreams for the land and the water through melody and performance. She is a storyteller and advocate for rematriating indigenous life practices. Nadia feels she is grateful to share herself through music for audiences, and finds that her performance is ever-evolving.

Grad students had a General Assembly on Tuesday, 5:15-7:30pm, to discuss our response to the egregious threats of mass TA dismissal from UCOP. We decided to continue discussion this week before reaching a collective decision about submitting Fall grades. In particular, we'll hold a General Assembly on Friday, 4:30pm, in Oakes 105. Do not submit Fall grades before Friday night! More info >

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
