2010 Shows prior to July 31

JANUARY 2nd, 2010 LIVE at SF FERRY Building, site of CUESA's San Francisco Farmers' Market -- . As for ways to get to the show, here's a map. What a fine way to commence 2010 this Saturday morning with Sedge's guests:

  • JOEL PAUL , author of Unlikely Allies, the untold, well, now told, true story of the secret diplomacy that won the American Revolution. How a Connecticut Merchant, a French Playwright, and a Cross-Dressing Spy saved the American Revolution. How they trusted no one, yet with skills that Mel Brooks might admire, leveraged intrigue to shift power. Not just another powdered-wig tale.
  • TIN CUP SERENADE , the classy elegant nouveau vogue trio that bridges the hip of San Francisco to New York and London. Their lyrics and music really should lead them to rename themselves as Silver Cup or Sapphire Bowl, but Tin Cup suggests the gathered from here-and-thereness of sounds. Truly post-buskerist.
  • LISA BENNETT, contributor to the Center for Ecoliteracy book Smart By Nature, showcasing stories for K-12 innovation, and how the greening of the schools, and education of the next generation may be the saving grace for our planet.
  • WILL DURST, the Commander adds a burst, spritz and lift to our 2010 launch. The comedian and political satirist makes his living with pungent prognostication and pert pearls and downright hilarious conversation. Be with us and gasp for air whilst chortling in the aisles.

  • AURÉLIA THEIRRÉE, performer in Aurélia's Oratorio, at Berkeley Rep through January 26th, at least, Her theatrical family DNA includes Charlie Chaplin and Eugene O'Neill. Her and her mother's theatre piece might suggest the reveries of Man Ray, the evocativeness of Marcel Marceau and the lithe wit of Charlie Chaplin, all transcendent through the athletic grace of this young woman who creates her own visible magic.
  • Naturalist CLAIRE PEASLEE, PRBO Conservation Science naturalist and natural wonder, expounds on the reproductive or feasting or game-playing lives of other species, She might well be the intellectual love-child of Kate Clinton and Charles Darwin.
  • RAJ PATEL , author of The Value of Nothing, who reflects on the market economy and democracy. He has worked for the World Bank and WTO and been tear-gassed on four continents protesting against them. Writer, activist, and academic, he is currently a visiting scholar at the UC Berkeley Centre for African Studies.
  • Acoustic World Folk Music by the PALM WINE BOYS, ties all the challengers and triumphs, and the simple pleasures of the world together with their mellow ribbons of highlife, soukous and township jive. What a day!

  • ENTERPRISE HIGH SCHOOL HORNET MARCHING BAND , who stir the blood of everyone the pass, with spirit and brio and verve. If you get the idea their lively, you are correct.
  • GENTLE THUNDER, she may ride a Kawasaki 750, but when she brings her hammer dulcimer and Native American flutes to our presence, there's a quiet peace and centeredness that connects with our ancestors.
