Music tells stories. Where you are ,where you’ve been, what you hope for ,dream about, remember, think and feel. Who was beside you the first time you heard that song. Hearing some tunes mean beach , or mountains or home or her. You are not sure what today is, but you know every word to the entire soundtrack of tenth grade.Certain opening notes are instantly recognizable. All of the sudden you are in space or facing the Grande Armee. Organized sound, redolent with rhythm, pitch, and tone, all on its own or coupled with rhyme and meter, gives us pleasure, creates and retains memories, challenges our intellect, inspires and expresses our deepest emotions.From the Palaeolithic era right up to 2013, music is something we homo sapiens need . That’s why we are at the Spot at 6:46 . To hear the stories in the songs.
Here is what Jeane Jolly has to say about us:
"Performing at The Rooster’s Wife is an experience like no other. There’s a beautiful exchange that happens there between the musicians and the listeners. I’ve performed there a couple of times and also have sat in the audience chair. I can honestly say, it’s one of my favorite places to share music! Whether you are attending a show or performing, the down feel is so welcoming. Rooster’s Wife was a true highlight for us this year as we completed our national tour. "
There are twelve more days in our Kickstarter . If you share Jeane’s opinion, jump in to keep the music happening in LA this winter, and beyond.

Did you know that girl who could not say no ? She had the most fun because she said KNOW , as in knowing it would be time well spent to be at the Spot . Given the choice of running the vacuum or running down to LA, the Filter Queen is not even close. Repetitive tasks are just that; repetitive. Live music is different every time. Join us on a off night at the Knight Spot. Sometimes we can’t say no to great talent passing our way.

The costs of our actions can be calculated in calories, heartache, dollars, cents, and sense. The cognitive cost of multitasking takes its toll in many ways. Productivity declines when distraction overrides concentration. Switching between tasks actually slows the completion of the jobs individually, which combines for a lower level of progress overall.Texting during a football game may not have huge consequences. There is always instant replay. In a more dangerous setting, say behind the wheel of the car, or in an important conversation, that split second loss of attention can be disastrous.Multitasking is best left to appliances. Running a load of wash while making a great smoothie with the radio tuned to NPR is a completely acceptable use of your supervisory skills.
Sweet & Spicy Carrot Smoothie – Orange carrots combine with sweet fall spices for a warming take on the vegetable smoothie. Add to a blender and mix for one minute: ½ cup apple juice, ¼ cup apple sauce, 1 cup cooked and chopped carrots, ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ cup low-fat coconut milk (or yogurt), 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper and 1 handful of ice (2-3 cubes). Sprinkle cinnamon on top to finish it off
Would you call musicians multi taskers because they can play cello, fiddle, mandolin , ukulele, guitar , bazouki AND sing ? Playing many instruments simultaneously through the mystery and magic of recording, makes for multi talented multi pleasured multi listening pleasure. Not to be confused with evil multitasking. I am going to hang this basket of laundry while I listen to Moors and McCumbers new album, and sip this delicious concoction . That is my way to multitask. I suggest you listen live , while enjoying Betsy’s Crepes ,this Sunday , October 20, at 6:46 . Multi tasking, LA style.
