My friend Lindasusan told me about a guy in El Sobrante who is selling his collection of percussion instruments and moving to New York. Lindasusan is a musician -- singer, songwriter, drummer, performer -- and a very good one. Right now she's rehearsing for liquid fire so hasn't been at drum class for a while. hmmmm I couldn't find any links for Liquid Fire 2002....
So of course I had to check out the El Sobrante percussion connection. With only half of his collection left unsold, Damion had a bunch of bells, shakers, frame drums, and other interesting persussiony things. I walked out with a Shakere, two African bells, clave, and a Bodhran made by the Walton Clan in Dublin, Ireland.
Eighty dollars poorer but happy, I stopped at Thrift Town, a Richmond instituition. There I bought a red tank top (for performance at Hopland Women's Festival), two woven baskets, and two paperbacks. That cost me $6.49.
I stopped on the way home to check out Trader Joe's. There, I bought a weird miscellany of food and beverages. I forgot--don't shop when you're hungry.
Now I'm home and ready to spend the rest of the evening staying dry and listening to the rain.
