edit to add: the headline of this post is misleading in that although I started Earthwise in Palo Alto in 1994, there were years where I focused on artist management and not concerts so there were no shows in Palo Alto (but I worked on shows in New Orleans or New York). There was only one show in 2018 (Allison Miller Trio at The Mitch) in 2018 – -the year my mother died — and no shows the year before. I did 43 shows last year — my most ever — but I also said that, like the rain Saturday, Earthwise is doing shows intermittently — let’s say its once or twice a month, on average.
