from the ongoing expeditions of San Francisco Piano Pop trio
True Margrit

Ok, now the more complete truth:

The "fan" pictured in the below posting is indeed a fan of True Margrit--he digs SEAWORTHY. Beyond that, he's my FAMOUS HOUSEMATE: THE FABULOUS PAINTER, DAVID GREMARD ROMERO!

Go see his big show on Friday, June 23rd at Bucheon Gallery (next to Citizen Cake--yum!) This is NOT TO BE MISSED!
All about David's Show!

(and you could also drop by Dolores Park Cafe {18th & Dolores} before or after David's show cuz I am playing a tune or two that night--along with a host of performers including but not limited to: Dianne Nola, Judea Eden, Amy Meyers, and The Pam & Jeri Show and uh, also...we will be back there at Dolores Park Cafe on July 28--remember? My birthday show!) Oh dear god, what am I thinking? If you really wanna know about our gigs you can go here to our gig page, after all...sheesh!


I have been working on scoring the trailer for Sarah Dunham's awesome film The Girl in the Ground which is a lusciously shot black & white feature film & Victorian thriller about Thomas Eakins and Walt Whitman and a mysterious and possibly malevolent doctor played by Iowa rockstar, Trailer Records artist, Dave Zollo. The trailer will be unveiled this summer--the thrills the chills, ooh!.

Also, I am recording some solo tracks and having a field day--do I, perhaps, mean throwing the discus, running the 40-yard-dash, swimming the butterfly, high-diving??? WHY, YES! Yes, I do! (Which REALLY means I've been feeling creatively frisky/risky and I am therefore putting the mental back into experimental & I even played some drums and guitar along with piano & vocals and triangle.) Some songs that never made it into the band's live setlist, or Seaworthy (or the new CD that will follow after Seaworthy, for that matter) will get their moment being affixed in flux--well, that's "analog tape-talk"-- let me re-phrase that, they will get their moment in the sound-file folder. And who knows what may happen? Perhaps a bonus disc of it all will later this year be available at gigs.

& Wonder of wonders! I got to see my spectacular sister (Mim Eichler Rivas) yesterday! She was in town for one day only, for a panel with: Chris Gardner (about his new book that she was involved in writing!)

The event was at the stunning new San Francisco museum:Museum of the African Diaspora

My sister's own book: Beautiful Jim Key is now out in paperback!!! Get it, y'all!! It's an amazing yarn that's all true. You will love it.

I do.
