Aha! A rare collision of my music and food worlds occurs this weekend! At the Medford City Hall this Saturday, April 2nd, from 7pm until 10pm, you (yes, you!) can support the Medford Farmers Market and see me (and laugh, if you feel so inclined) dressed up in full librarian regalia, rockin' out on flute with my band, The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library. Not so sure you'll be into it? Well, our debut album has been described as "the greatest album by a library-themed baroque indie-pop band of all time." (TimeOut Boston, 2/21/11) Now aren't you intrigued?
But don't do it for us - you can catch us at a regular rock club later in the month anyways. Do it for the market! The farmers! The veggies! Don't you love your veggies??
The Medford Farmers Market will be opening for its fifth season on June 16 and running through October 13 on Thursday afternoons from 3pm until 7pm. All proceeds from Saturday's event will go towards the operating costs of the market.
In addition to supporting a fabulous community resource, your $20 ticket ($25 at the door) will gain you access to three hours of snacks provided by local vendors, a cash bar, and music from us and two other performers, Susan Cattaneo and Max Heinegg.
Hope to see you there!
...or you will be viciously shushed.
