Also, Attention West Coast Readers:
This weekend and next week, you've got some alt contras and a concert by Firecloud (Andy Reiner and Julie Vallimont) in their first ever West Coast tour!
On Saturday, June 30, there's a techno contra in Portland, OR.
There is also going to be a dance with Firecloud and Chopped Liver in the Carillo Ballroom in Santa Barbara, CA on July 1. This will be a split event, with Chopped Liver playing from 6:30-9 PM and Firecloud (with glow sticks and special lights) from 9:15-11 PM. The entire event will be called by Jean Gorrindo.
There is also going to be a house concert on July 2 with Firecloud in San Luis Obispo, CA (reservations required; email jgorrindo at charter dot net).
On July 3, in San Rafael, CA, there will be a techno contra with Firecloud and Lynn Ackerson calling at 7:30 PM. (More info can be found at the North Bay Contra Dance Society web site.)
Attention Boston-area folks:
I intend to dance at the Concord Scout House Monday night at the weekly dance (~75% sure I will be there) this upcoming Monday (Update, 7/1/12: Due to the horrific storm that swept through DC and stopped Amtrak around DC in its tracks -- literally -- I am likely to not be at the Scout House; I am in town to see a friend and I am electing to stay in with my host since I was supposed to leave at 6 AM Saturday and I didn't actually leave DC until 3AM Sunday due to canceled trains...) and I will almost definitely be heading to Copley Square on Tuesday night for the (free!) contra dance with Perpetual e-Motion and George Marshall calling (there will also be international dancing led by Marcie Van Cleave) -- hope to see some of you there! (And if anyone has interesting ideas for T-accessible touristy things I can do during the day while my host is at work early next week, I'm taking suggestions.)
Carry on Dancing,
