Jamie and Juan's music podcast

I know I've not been posting much lately. I promise you that I've been REALLY super, DUPER busy with musical projects and jobs. In fact, GOOD NEWS: Hear it Local has asked me to blog regularly for them, which is super exciting. So, stay tuned.

One of the fun projects I've been part of is a podcast with my friend Juan Raigosa who used to be a KUSF (R.I.P.) DJ. (Juan had me on his show semi-regularly at the end of 2010 to hang out before the station got derailed).

Juan sets up a mini recording studio in his bedroom and I wheel in some of the amazing people of our music community to play music (live and recorded), chat and just tell us about what's happening.

We're thinking of changing the name, but for now it's called Just Push Play.

So far we've had on KC Turner, Jonathan Mann, Jessie Woletz, Dina Maccabee and Lyz Luke. It's been a lot of fun.  Can't wait to record more!

Some photos of us being silly and playing some live music.

Jessie Woletz: the woman behind the Seaweed Sway & grassroots music promotion in the Bay Area

Please meet my friend Jessie Woletz, fellow lover and promoter of local music. We met when I was singing with the all women's choir Conspiracy of Venus and learned of a little project she's called the Seaweed Sway.

I'm in awe of what Jessie is doing for San Francisco's music scene and we have been supporting each other in our endeavors.

Please read my article about her and the Seaweed Sway HERE and come see one of her Seaweed Sway showcases on the third Sunday of every month at the Make-Out Room in San Francisco.

This is the first article in a series interviewing folks behind the music in the Bay Area's music scene. These folks are making it possible for musicians to get out there and do what they do best. You know, people like me! We need to support each other as well as the musicians we love.

Stay-tuned for profiles on the gentlemen of Chasing the Moon and the Joyce McBride of Conspiracy of Venus.

Monthly Seaweed Sway showcase for a relaxing Sunday evening at the Make-Out Room

Happy Birthday to Dina of Ramon and Jessica!

Sunday nights are for taking it easy and letting your brain have a little bit of a break before the week begins again. Sometimes you feel like staying in, and sometimes you feel like a relaxing night out with mellow music. If you're in the mood for the latter, check out the new Seaweed Sway monthly showcase at the Make-Out room this Sunday the 20th. It's purpose is to build community around local music and and highlight some of the best music in the Bay Area. The organizer is local music, farming and yoga enthusiast Jessie Woletz, and her blog is the Seaweed Sway.

This showcase falls during the holiday season and will be encouraging the festive, so wear your ugly holiday sweaters! I know you have one left over from the last party you went to. Bring a non-perishable (healthy if possible) food item to donate to the San Francisco Food Bank and get $1 off admission as well.

December's showcase will feature some of the best indie/folk/pop music in San Francisco from Garrett Pierce, Kacey Johansing, Ramon & Jessica, and MC'd by Jeremy Dalmas. Stick around for a dance party in honor of Dina Maccabee (of Ramon & Jessica)'s birthday, for those who can stay out late. Come celebrate! Sunday night style, so it starts early, but latecomers are welcome. Doors at 7:30, music at 8 sharp.
