Hello again, goodbye.. 2016

Friday, December 9th, 2016

We’re letting go by playing it again and hearing something new.  We’re taking the spark of creations from this year and seeing how we can further it now, how they want to take shape now and what else of ourselves comes through the songs now.  We’re building now out of nothing and out of everything we got.  Come celebrate with us at the marvelous Issyra Gallery.  You’ll be immersed in an environment built from the hands, spirit and vision of artist, Issa Sow, plus the literature-inspired revelry of yours truly, Bushwick Book Club.  Plus, someone is making beef bourguignon.
