YARD DOGS ROAD SHOW PRESENTS: CABARET BLITZ!

Consider Yard Dogs Road Show's "Cabaret Blitz!" a polite challenge to all that is prevailing in American culture.  There is poetry everywhere and it must be acknowledged!  Collaborating for these shows with regional and local artists, the groups billed along this very special run represent a menagerie of west coast cabaret and circus arts.  Many of them have never shared the same stage.  They come with open hearts to engage a decorated and poetic civilization.  Dress code:  a formal outward expression of one's inner carnival.

Planet Drum To Tour Again

The Planet Drum 2006 Tour reunites Mickey Hart, Zakir Hussain, Sikiru Adepoju, and Giovanni Hidalgo for a September series of West Coast shows in celebration of the 15th anniversary of the ground-breaking album of that name.  Planet Drum was released in 1991 on the Rykodisc label and went on to earn the first-ever Grammy in the World Music category.  The tour is the groups first in almost a decade.  It also marks the resumption of an artistic relationship – between Mickey Hart and Zakir Hussain – that goes back to the late 1960s.
