April Fool’s Day Birthdays

Birthday Greetings to My Dad and D. Boon

D. Boon and Mike Watt 1979
Mike Watt and D. Boon jamming in 1979, San Pedro, Calif.

Just a quick Happy Birthday greeting to friends, family and loved ones lost…

  • My Dad: Born 1934 is 73 years old today
  • The inimitable Jenn Harrison: Born March 31
  • Christopher from the Beat Garden!
  • Sexy Venus, too!

Happy Birthday to you ! May your wildest fantasies visit you often!

Today is also the birthday of the one and only D. Boon, who was tragically snatched away from us far too early in life. I miss him… and I know that I’m not alone. Give D. Boon a thought and a smile. He deserves at least that much. The man was a god. An unlikely messiah… Tune in to some Minutemen music today! Double Nickels on the Dime, baby! Tune in… and remember…

Best regards,


Scott Huckabay in Concert! A Benefit in Santa Monica

Friend, musician and fellow adventurer Scott Huckabay was in Hawaii giving his mother’s ashes a final parting. A hot water pipe broke in his place while he was gone and it basically destroyed everything.

Scott Huckabay Benefit

Like many folks who are musicians and artists whose crafts, skills, and talents bring joy to our lives, Scott was not insured.

Lyra writes:

Conditions were perfect for mold and it had about a month to do its thing throughout his home and its contents including several of his guitars, master tapes, and computer. Good news is that he is seeing this as an opportunity to ascend to an even higher plane, fresh.

I work at an eco-friendly lifestyle store in Santa Monica, which has done art shows and things in the past, and I thought, what better place to hold a benefit for him? There will be organic wine and other refreshments as well. Come and hear this amazing shamanic guitarist!

I look forward to seeing all of our Southern California friends! I’ll be putting out event invitations soon. Tell all your friends!! 🙂

Blessings and love,

  • Suggested donation: $10
  • 10% of in-store sales will go directly to Scott!
  • Fine art raffle!
  • Proceeds to Scott!

Sunday, April 1st, 7-9pm

message me for the phone number of the store.

I’ll be looking for volunteers to help out with the door, refreshments, and security (it’s a store with small items, after all) so all help would be appreciated!

Scott’s site, if you haven’t heard him
