Big thanks go to Steve and Heidi from DEMO:http://www.demomn.org/ for getting up early on Tuesday and celebrating local music and Patti Smith. DEMO in conjunction with the Hennepin Theatre Trust:http://www.hennepintheatredistrict.org/ present Patti Smith at the State Theatre Monday, August 6th. Also very big thanks to Andy who put together a great show while I was out of town, including a tribute to beloved poet, teacher and artist Sekou Sundiata. Hug your loved ones.
Tonight the Echo Chamber presented our annual All-Jamaican Special — celebrating the 45th Anniversary of Jamaican Independence, and In Memoriam for Robert, my late father-in-law who passed away 8 years ago on July 27th. So, this All-Jamaican celebration we like to call One Fe Robert.
Andy filling in for Pam on a hot Tuesday morning. Weather and breakfast themed sets (duh!), an in depth exploration of the work of Joe Henry, and a tribute to poet/performer/philosopher Sekou Sundiata who died last week at the age of 58.
