Yes, you heard right, we’re hosting another concert this month. Join Twin Peaks and fellow music act Tall Cans on Saturday, June 22nd. Many of you have heard these guys play in Dawson, so come show your support for these talented musicians. Let’s fill the place! Doors open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7:00. Tickets are $10 at the door.
Yesterday was indeed an eventful day for us!
We started off the day with a class of 30 kids coming in to check out our cookies and bookstore. It was kind of fun seeing the place full of new people who didn’t know we were here before, and some of them had great questions for us.
Then, we carried on with our regular lunch, but in the afternoon, we started moving furniture to prepare for a sound check, and then a concert in the evening. If you weren’t here, you missed a great show. Sean’s music is incredible – sometimes moving and at other times, incredibly funny. I have to admit that I didn’t know his music before we booked his show, but I can see why he’s won so many awards. It was great!
We’ve got live guitar at lunchtime again this week: pop in and enjoy Ian’s mellow melodies with your lunch!
Next Saturday, May 25th, is the last Coffee House of the season, and several of this year’s featured performers will be at the mike. Be sure to catch what is sure to be a great show!
Finally, we’ve also got a couple of concerts in the work for all you music lovers. If you love Twin Peaks, be sure to save June 22nd in your calendar. They’ll be playing right here at Faking Sanity, along with fellow music act Tall Cans. Their sites can be found here and here respectively.
We’re also working on a Sean Hogan concert on May 31st that is sure to tickle your musical fancies, so stay tuned for details!!
Stock up for when school’s out — our sale table right now is half-price kids books! There are over 200 titles, mainly for ages 9-12 (but some for a little younger and some for a little older.)
Looking for something a little different to go with your lunch? How about a little live music? Ian and his guitar will be back Monday to Friday through the rest of the month!
Ian Smith and his guitar will be here Monday through Friday next week over lunch. Come enjoy some mellow guitar with your food! Or, if you’re lucky, you may end up with Ian playing and everyone in the shop singing along to the Muppet theme song!
If you love live music, we’ve got another special treat for you this month. And if you like to support local artists, you’ll love it even more!
Many of you have heard Samantha Scott or Dirty Little Kitchen. Samantha is working towards putting out her first EP, Rodeo Fawn, and is hosting a concert right here at Faking Sanity to help raise the funds for it.
The show will take place on Wednesday, March 13th at 8 pm, and it’s sure to be a real treat. It’s also another opportunity to catch Sally Hayes and Peter Cooper, who will be opening the show. Mark the date! Admission is by donation.
It’s that time again! The doors open at 6:30 this evening for the February Coffee House, which is put on by the local Peace River Songwriters’ Association. The featured performers this time around are Peter Cooper & Danica Baldry, also known as DB Cooper).
Come enjoy an evening of local talent – or share your own by signing up for the open mike segment! Doors open at 6:30 pm and the cover is $10 at the door.
Local author Ruth Czerniak (aka R.S. Smith) will be holding a book reading and book signing at Faking Sanity, this Saturday, January 26th from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Ruth’s books and CDs will be available for purchase directly from her, including her new release “Escape From Paradise”. If you’re a fan of Christian fiction set in Biblical times, come check it out!
Did you all have a nice break before jumping into this new year? We had a bit of a break, but we’ve been very busy over the holidays, too.
Some of you may remember the days when we first opened with a grand total of 15 bookshelves… Last year, we added an additional 7 bookshelves in order to get more books out. Over the holidays, we added another 19 bookshelves for a grand total of 41 – nearly 3 times more in total than we had to start! Come check out all the new titles.
Or, if you’re more of a knitter than a reader, come check out our new yarn and needles on display. We even got in the Cascade 220 Handpaints that we’ve been waiting for since before the end of the world that didn’t happen! :)
