The Sanctuary's artist in residence is Oakland's Eva Restad, the central performer and creative force behind The Church of Color and Light. Tonight at 8 p.m. at the Sanc', Church of C and L presents a performance of the ritual piece "IRRA" ($5-$20 sliding scale). Accompanying music will be provided by local sound-scaper Oryan Peterson-Jones, aka Die Geister Beschwören.
The '70s certainly had a lot of sun-bleached hits, though perhaps none of them made as much of a dent in my personal archeological musical palimpsest as the tune "Summer Breeze" by Seals and Croft. It's just a perfect song that captures a feeling that doesn't really exist on paper. So suffice it to say I am giddy that the curators behind Soul Party — DJ Red, Jaymorg and Funky T-Rex —have named this installment of the all-vinyl sock hop at Humbrews Summer Breezin'. Bring $5 to the door at 9 p.m. to see how seasonally appropriate this little party is.
