The first film will begin some time around eight as the sun disappears. The second film will start a couple hours later (so around ten).
Some will gather ahead (between four and five) for some dinner but the main event is certainly the films.
If you would like to come for the dinner talk with Jimmy.
If you would like to come early for the optional dinner talk to me.
I am planning to make Chicken with Plums and something like ratatouille (and some black rice).
The first film will start about eight once the sun goes away. The second about two hours later.
Sat daytime will be hot but remember to bring your warm clothes for after sunset.
I am out of Coca-Cola so if that’s your movie bev better bring some.
In the end we showed only the first film (Free Guy). It’s a shame because the second film (Boss Level) is certainly the better film and the weather was perfect (no jackets required into the wee hours of the night). See you at the next one!
An all-new lineup of musicians for this show. The usual good times available for all.
As usual it’s your basic picnic bbq potluck grassy gnoll sort of rock and roll show. All donations go to the musicians. We recommend $20-25 per person. Probably the players will have stuff you can buy as well. I’ll post some links here and there below.
I will be making my usual (unusual) pork loin. Please do make comments here about what you are bringing so not everyone brings kale and quinoa salad. Someone should probably bring something to go with it.
What’s your preferred potluck portable comestible?

Well, Thursday last my world and the wider world of music lost a bit of its spark.
I met Ian while we were both contracting for Miliman Care Guidelines. We became fast friends due to many common interests, including but not limited to computer shit and all things music. (He was a developer and I was supporting an xml product. We both played guitar.)
He once told me that when his album went platinum he would give me his acoustic guitar.
Many years later, due to my regard for his knowledge of both music and musicians, I looked to him when I wanted to start doing music shows here in my backyard. He pointed me to John Elliott (who strangely was just releasing an album called Backyards) who came to Peavine Alley to play our first music show (bring Aly Marcus to open).
That was ten summers ago. John plays here every couple of years on his tours.
John loves coming here and we love having him.
Actually, through Ian I have met a lot of folks. A lot. It’s hard not to when we are both infectiously gregarious. Take for example the traveling Argentinians.
They were traveling. They met Ian. They were looking for a place to crash. They crashed with me. We visited Harry (another enormous musical force in my life). They reached out today. Of course they did. We are all good people. A force for good in the world. Much love.
Do you have an Ian story? So many do. So many do.
Good-bye, old friend.
On Ian’s birthday (20230208), some of us gathered and hit a couple of the old Ballard haunts in celebration. Here is a photo from our night out.
