Saving Dollars for April Events

Brandi Carlile is coming to town; she’ll be on April 20th, Monday, at the Knitting Factory.

Amy Goodman will be here on April 23rd. Usually watch Democracy Now! on Channel 11 in the evening, actually night.  Oh, here we go….a bit more below….

We have also scheduled a special, intimate reception for Amy Goodman with drinks and appetizers at The Red Feather Lounge beginning at 5:30 pm! Tickets for this special function will be limited to 18. For information, please call 484-8000.
