If you aren't going to be up in Grass Valley on Friday June 16th I sure hope you will come by the 3rd Friday Square Dance in Oakland! Echo Mountain is up from LA to play, they are great and we'd love to give them a room full of dancers!

Back in town from the Portland Old Time Gathering and so ready to call the North Oakland dance on Friday! Old time bad boys The Sons of Liberty are coming up from Santa Cruz to play hot rowdy dance tunes.

I know Friday is inauguration night and the whole Bay Area is probably planning on staying home before going to the march the next day, BUT I so encourage you to come out and dance with community, see/make friends, and hear some really good old time music that night instead. I really can't think of a better way to spend 1/20 than square dancing in a Marxist library, surrounded by radical literature and diy spirit.
