Damien Jurado & Aaron Lee Martin at Barleycorn's
Barleycorn's – Damien Jurado - http://damienjurado.com/ Urban folk singer/songwriter Damien Jurado quietly built up one of the strongest catalogs on the indie scene, earning high critical praise yet somehow never quite getting his proper due. Nick Drake had a definite impact on much of his work, but Jurado modeled his career on more idiosyncratic, unpredictable figures like Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, and Randy Newman—songwriters who followed their own muse wherever it took them, whether fans and critics enjoyed it or not. His independence was born at least in part from the influence of punk, and one of the results was a concern for emotional authenticity that led him to delve into other people’s lives instead of his own. Many of Jurado’s best songs spun concise, literate tales of quiet, everyday despair, which often earned him comparisons to short story writer Raymond Carver. But his storytelling bent—not to mention his ambivalence toward confessional material—arose from a stronger grounding in traditional folk than spiritual compatriots like Elliott Smith or Cat Power. And with detours into pop, roots rock, full-fledged electric indie rock, psychedelia, and even found-sound experiments, Jurado ensured that his body of work was impossible to accurately pin down. Aaron Lee Martin - https://www.aaronleemartin.com/ "Hailing from America’s heartland, singer/songsmith/superhero Aaron Lee Martin has an indomitable passion for music. Whether he’s onstage playing for packed house or in a tour-van sharing new material with a couple adoring fans, he exhibits the same raw emotionalism and devotion to his craft. Freighted with country/folk arrangements and heartrending balladry, Aaron’s music builds on—not belabors—familiar American themes. With matchless vocals and poignant lyrics, he delivers love & loss, life & death, in equal doses, while sidestepping sentimentality—and managing to have fun in the process (Kansans are a rowdy bunch!). Though he’s toured extensively (playing festivals, barrooms, and coffee shops across the country), Aaron rarely turns down an opportunity to play—not because he’s desperate, but because he desperately loves what he does. Already he’s got two full-lengths and a Christmas album under his belt, but whether you’re a longtime fan or a new convert, you can rest assured—the best is yet to come!" $16 ADV $18 DOS

The Power of Yoga
Satya Moon Yoga – Join us as we host Dr. Kausthub Desikachar, the successor and current lineage holder of the classical Yoga tradition of T Krishnamacharya & TKV Desikachar, for this experiential seminar. The real power of Yoga lies in the ability to access, nourish and vitalize the concept of Prana. Prana, also called vital-life-force, is the most subltle element of our human construct. It not only keeps us alive, but also influences our ability to perceive and react to our environment. It is also among the powerful phenomena that aids us in proceeding deeper in our spiritual journey. This is the reason why many Yogins developed methods and tools to influence Prana in a positive way. Being taught by a senior teacher of a long and established Yoga tradition, participants will certainly find out new ways to explore Pranayama, both in undertanding its theory and in experiencing its potentials. To learn more about Dr. Desikachar, please visit www.Kausthub.com Early bird pricing $245 (until April 30, 2017) Regular pricing $275 (after May 1, 2017). Dr. Desikachar is now able to offer Yoga Alliance CEUs.
