Go! See! Please!

Sadly I could not find you the hottest picture of my girl, Julie Flanders. It's somehow embedded into the announcement she sent out today and I can't seem to steal it. Damn her protecting her information! In light of that I hope she's able to forgive me for using a somewhat outdated but lovely photo of her that I was able to steal and use entirely without permission.

Anyway, Miss Julie is doing a rare solo gig this Monday night. Apparently the Songwriters Hall of Fame is having an open mic night at Makor and Julie is capping it off with a set of brand new tunes with her lyrics and the music of her partner, Emil Adler.

It's often the lyrics in things that hook me and Julie's lyrics are twisted and painful and tough and yet precariously delicate. Emil builds music around those words that buoy them and sneakily build the emotion in them until it seeps into your skin.

So, I recommend the evening highly and I would be extremely grateful if you could support my friend.

Here are the details as sent to me by the woman herself:
