๐Ÿ’ƒ This February, LiveWire presents The Burying Ground, coming to grace the stage with some โ€˜20s/30s style foot-tapping blues! 

Woody Forster - Guitar, Vocals
Devora Laye - Washboard, Saw, Vocals
Bonnie Northgraves - Trumpet
Joseph Lubinsky-Mast - Bass

"Authentically delivered, rustic old-timey, country blues, and swinging jazz flecked, folk music... I will look forward to anything The Burying Ground offer up from here on in. While they may be devoted to the precious music of a long gone golden era, they still have an awful lot to offer the present and future, as music this good is evidently timeless."
--David Morrison, Folk Radio UK

You donโ€™t have to dance to come and enjoy the music, but beginner dancers are always welcome to join the fun! No partner required, and make sure you come for the lesson at 8:00. 

The Anza is a 19+ venue with beer and a nice wooden dance floor and comfy booths to sit in. Wear whatever shoes youโ€™d like to dance in - no bare feet or socks. 

7:30 - Doors are open!
8:00 - Dance Practica hosted by Michael Bean
8:00 - First-Timer Beginner lesson by Bex Winnick
9:00 - 11:30: Dance with the Burying Ground! 

The evening will start with a dance practica. During the practica we circle up and share our names, some stretches, and intentions about what weโ€™d like to learn in our dancing. Then the floor will open for dancers of all levels to mingle, practice, and share moves and concepts that theyโ€™re working on. 

During the practica, Bex will take aside a small group of the first-time fusion dancers and introduce you to the basics! 

Price: $12 to $20
Pay-what-you-can
Cash only (ATM at venue)

Or get in FREE by volunteering 1 hour at the door. Sign up at the volunteering post in the discussion below!

Extra money we bring in will be used to hire more inspiring musicians for future events, and to help pay DJs and organizers.
