So Say We All Best Of Show

So Say We All, the local arts non-profit is teaming up with Habitat House to present a collection of highlights from the last 3 years of their live literary showcases. This Sunday, each writer will perform a live reading of their essay and ten visual artists matched up with one of the writers will exhibit work inspired by each essay. Doors will open at 6pm and the readings will begin promptly at 7pm. Make sure to be on time as the living room will fill up quick. Donations will be accepted for So Say We All and while it’s not mandatory, they sure would appreciate it. For a full list of artists and writers click here.

The Howls : Rocky Ground

The Howls are prepping to release their debut full length this month at The Casbah, and they've been kind enough to preview a couple tracks with us.  Check out Weight and Vacation below, and be sure to snag your tickets early to their January 27th release show.  Rumor has it that Sara Watkins from Nickel Creek will be joining them for a few songs.

Brothers Ralph of Writer Head to NYC

The brothers Ralph of Writer are packing up their things for an extended stint on the east coast in New York. San Diego is losing a terrific pair of artists and musicians, and we're pretty sad but also excited for what the future holds for these two. Your last chance to catch Writer live (for a while at least) will be this Friday, January 6th at the Tower Bar with Chairs Missing and Illuminauts.

New Yorkers can welcome Andy and Jayme at Glasslands on January 25th or at the Mercury Lounge on February 9th.

Here's a look back at one of our favorite performances:

San Diego Foundation : Creative Catalyst

A few months ago we reported on an individual artist grant offered by the San Diego Foundation. The Creative Catalyst Fund was created to fund up to 19 artists currently working in San Diego, focusing at the emerging level as a means to take selected artist's careers to a new level. We're thrilled to announce that longtime Sezio collaborators Wes Bruce and Joel P West have each been awarded a grant for 2012.

Each artist had to apply through an eligible non-profit within San Diego County. Wes Bruce will be sponsored by Lux Art Institute, and Joel will be working with Camarada, whose focus is to present classical and chamber music in new, engaging venues. Sound artist Margaret Noble was also selected and will be working with MCASD. The UT announced the full, 15 artist list yesterday.

We'll keep you posted throughout 2012 on their ambitious, year-long projects. For now, enjoy a previous collaboration between Joel and Wes.
