Reminder: I'm playing at the Alameda Free Library tomorrow from 10:45-11am. Local alameda children's band The Dilly Dallies might drop in to play a few songs. I might play a Fugazi song. Who knows?! All I do know is it's a chance to get out of the house with your kid!


Storytime at the Library is pretty rad. On Thursday there's a 10am session for younger kids & an 11am session for the 3-5 year old set. The librarians do an awesome job.


The next two Wednesdays you'll find me doing this. You should join me with your baby.

I'll be playing music at the Alameda Free Library from 10:15-11am the next two Wednesdays. It's a mix of this hits (wheels on the bus, you are my sunshine, on top of spaghetti) and songs I like (white stripes, neutral milk hotel, Fugazi). It'll give you 45 minutes to zone out while I play music for your kids!

In solidarity with the International Women's Day Strike tomorrow, I will be taking over the duties of leading sing-a-long tomorrow, 10:15am-11am! Wear red. #DayWithoutAWoman
