Ra So playing Ecstatic Dance in Oakland on Wednesday Feb 12. Tropicana Club (formerly, Sweets Ballroom) 1933 Broadway, Oakland CA
Please, join me and live vocalist, Daniel Ross (aka "Tikkun"), for a 3 hour sonic journey from 8-11pm.
As you may know, Ecstatic Dance offers an opportunity like no other to experience my music in it's full spectrum. I'll be featuring some new, original work from my collaboration with vocalist, Tikkun. He'll be singing live to this work from time to time throughout the night. Jeniffer Severo will be painting live as well and Gamelon X will close out the night with the sound healing after I've finished.
Bring your heart and soul to this one. We got so much love, depth and beauty to share... and I simply cannot do it without you. I'd love to see you there.
And as always, I'll do my best to offer that which is essential, through the music.
7-8pm - Contact Improv w/ Karl Frost
8-11pm - Ra So w/ Tikkun Ross

Lightning in a Bottle is moving to central California May 22-26, 2014 at Monterey County's Lake San Antonio Recreation Area, in Bradley, California, West Coast Sound can exclusively report.
240 miles north of Los Angeles 20 miles inland from the Pacific coast, situated in the hills and surrounded by nature for miles in each direction. This remote location will likely effect how late into the night the festival is allowed to play music
While swimming was not permitted at Lake Skinner, it is allowed at Lake San Antonio. (Unfortunately, the lake is currently dried up due to the state-wide drought.)
We have announced the March Against Monsanto 2.0 for next year 5/24/14! We will also be active and setting up some other actions both online and with boots on the ground before then so stay tuned! July 4th we will be promoting Moms Across America's event for food independence, October 12th we take to the streets again In honor of World Food Day on 10/16/13. More to come so stay tuned.
