More from the Pasadena Folk Music Society (This isn't the whole of the newsletter - I recommend subscribing if you want to hear about other stuff going on in the area).

============================================================================================================

We'll soon slip into February, and the Folk Music Society has two shows in this short month. We start with Honey Whiskey Trio, three young women who have been turning heads with their harmonies, and dramatic body percussion and movements, on Saturday, February 2, at 8:00 PM in Beckman Institute Auditorium.

Courtney, Ann Louise, and Christina develop and arrange their own stirring harmonies and body percussion (hand clappin', finger snappin', leg slappin', and foot stompin') with synchronized movements. On some songs, they play guitar, mandolin, banjo, and shruti box (come find out what that is!). They create, arrange, and explore music from the front porches, music halls, and hymn books of early America, sharing it with adults, students, and life-long music lovers across the United States. Lisa Forkish, of the A Cappella Association wrote, "They always leave you sitting at the edge of your seat, waiting with bated breath for each new beautifully executed phrase." Hear them sing their namesake song, Sweet Honey Whiskey and hear a good sampling of what they do here. These women give their all with their singing, and they just might steal your heart in the process!

 

Tickets for this show are $20 for adults, and $5 for children and Caltech students. You can purchase tickets at the Caltech Ticket Office, 1200 E. California Blvd (southeast corner of Wilson Avenue and California Blvd) between 10:00 AM and 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. You can buy tickets in person without a service charge, or by phone with a service charge at (626) 395-4652. Outside of visiting the Ticket Office, this is the best deal if you want to buy them in advance, because a single service charge applies to all tickets purchased in the transaction, including for multiple shows. You can also buy them online (a service charge per ticket and a per-order charge are applied) here until the end of Thursday, January 31. And you can buy them at the door for cash or check (no credit cards at the door.)

The new FilkCast has escaped and is out and about in the world! It's available on iTunes and Google Play!

My only question is, why do there seem to be no South American Filkers?

I have had listens on every other continent but South America. (minus Antarctica, they really don't have the bandwidth to DL it)

If anyone knows any filkers down that way, send them a link!

This week FilkCast features Brooke vs John, Seanan McGuire, Joe Giacoio, The Unusual Suspects, Tianna and the Cliffhangers, Erica Neely, and Karen Linsley!

Twitter is getting more and more annoying. I just learned that they suspended Maggie McNeill for tweeting that "They should ... burn the White House down!" in a context which obviously wasn't a serious threat. I'm seriously thinking about moving @filknews from Twitter to a Mastodon instance, if I could find one where it wouldn't just go unnoticed.

Each instance has its own flavor and focus. I currently have an account on Liberdon, but that instance is politically oriented and not well suited for news about filk. Mastodon.social is huge, and it could turn out to be a replay of Twitter. People with an account on any instance can follow accounts on any other instance that isn't blocked by or blocking the user's site, so not everyone would have to be on the same site.

What I'd like is an instance which is music-friendly or fan-friendly. What I post on @filknews isn't likely to be controversial, but it should fit in with the instance's purpose. People on the same instance are more likely to notice and follow an account. Then they can boost toots to get wider attention.

But I'm not sure there are even enough filkers on Mastodon to make it work.

Thoughts?

Arisia 2019 will be in the Park Plaza hotel in downtown Boston, not in the Westin. The reason was a long-running strike which, I'm told, was settled very shortly after the Arisia committee had to make a decision. I heard many other things at the MASSFILC meeting, but they'd just be rumors if I repeated them here. Check the Arisia announcement for more information from the source.

FilkCast!
