It was awesome! Were you there? It was on Friday, March 12, 7-9 pm. It was in the Headquarters theater.

Thanks to all the musicians and, hey, you can check them out on MySpace Music: Proof by Assertion, Ambulance Review, and 52 Foreign Dumpsters! (You all were great and you know it!)

Check out this video of Proof by Assertion at Salem Church last August.

You can also see The Ambulance Review performing "No Way!" Says FAA on MySpace.

Fans, you were great, too! Wouldn't be a show without you all! Mark your calendars for the next show at Headquarters: Friday, June 11

 “He was not sure exactly when he became a child of the forest,” but 13 year-old Samuel, the hero of Gary Paulsen’s new book Woods Runner,  has a profound gift for hunting and understanding “sign” in the wild. Not only does Samuel supply meat for his parents, but he is the main hunter for the frontier community in which he lives.

Samuel is part of two worlds – the green world of the forest, “unimaginably vast, impenetrable, mysterious and dark,” and the world of civilization, of shelter and books and contemplation. On the frontier of western Pennsylvania, life is rigorous, brutal, and often violent.  Samuel’s life as hunter and provider seems peaceful, until the fateful day when he is out hunting and smells “wrong” smoke on the wind from the direction of his home. He fears that something has happened to his parents, and runs the eight miles home in a panic.

We seek heat in the dark cold winter night. Sleeping, we dream of warm air, beaches, and jungles. Imagine growing up in such a place, an island: not wearing shoes until the 6th grade; not seeing snow until you were 19, (and away from home). Some people call Hawaii paradise; Graham Salisbury called Hawaii home. The islands and surrounding waters are the locale for his compelling stories and novels.
