Join us for an evening of great live music, potluck and inspiring conversation.

Enjoy an intimate evening of original music riding the waves of dark and light with guitarist and composer Reverend Screaming Fingers (aka Lucio Menegon – Music•Noise•Art), and singer-songwriter Artemis, along with special guests Steven White and (our gracious host!) Tracy Apps.

There is something quite extraordinary about watching talented artists perform for a small audience in a private space – both for the audience and performers. If you have not experienced this, then you are in for a pleasant surprise. House concerts are a unique opportunity to experience music in a comfortable environment.

Doors open at 6:30pm, music starts at 7:30pm.

Timely arrival is appreciated. We will have two 45 minute sets of music with a break between for chatting and eating.

Donations of $10-20 per person suggested
All contributions go to the performers, to support their tour. You can also pre-pay online using paypal by clicking below:

Feel free to bring an appetizer, drink or dessert to share.

Seating is limited. Please RSVP on Facebook, or RSVP via email.

More about the musicians

REVEREND SCREAMING FINGERS (aka Lucio Menegon) is a composer, improviser and sonic artist that freely mingles angular riffs, subtle sounds and sheer noise with fucking awesome in-free-fall after jumping out of a capsule at-the-edge-of-space guitar work.

His work is rooted in old blues, country, punk rock, surf, spaghetti western soundtracks and has been described as Morricone composing surf music on Laudnum… performed at a secret opium den in the basement of CBGB’s. Big city chaos, desert expanses, long drives and forays into ambient textural spaces inform a fusion of traditional song structure and modern improvisation.

ARTEMIS is a New York native, California-based artist whose songwriting is a relentlessly genre-defiant exploration of science and sensuality, etymology and emotion, the natural and supernatural. In live performance, she layers looped vocals to build skeletons of textured harmony and quirky rhythm, adding naked timbres of piano, guitar, flute, and ukulele, alongside various electronic devices. Floating above and weaving together this simple yet sophisticated palette, the singer’s superpower is subtlety, from intricate inflections in a near-whisper, to the use of dissonance as counterweight in belted-out Bulgarian-style choirs.

Artemis recently released her ninth album, a 3-EP volume called Triptych, through the Oakland-based artist collective and label she co-founded, RTFM Records.

Artemis “presides over an aural slow-burn like one of Wim Wenders’ angels – warm, wise, detached, waiting for you….” – Ron Garmon (LA CityBeat, SF Weekly)
