Lytton Plaza re:Set June 9 10 11 by Earthwise Productions of Palo Alto not Stanford

June 9 Freddy Jones Band 7 pm

June 10 Cien Mil Mangos 12 pm, Larry Ochs Gerald Cleaver 2 pm, free

June 11 Jim Campilongo Ben Davis Duo 2 pm

I am doing shows on three consecutive days next month at Lytton Plaza, Downtown, Palo Alto. There has been some talk lately about renaming the plaza for Earth Day whose planning offices were across the street or for the A3M movement, the group of Stanford antiwar activists, who played rock music or clashed with the police there.
So that’s like a reset, right?
Actually “reset” is the name being used by a three-part concert series at Stanford Frost nearby and soon. But if they can appropriate the name “ Steve Lacy” — a hip hop artist headlining here with the same name as a jazz legend — pictured above -I can steal the name reset or Re:Set.
Maybe I should call my company GoldenVice… not named for a type of marijuana; or GoldenWeiss. 

edit to add: I was just jawing with Scott Amendola (played Thursday, plays May 21) that there is less taboo about doing shows on the anniversary of the destruction of the World Trade Center; I never believed that the Muslim extremists thought too hard about their date coinciding with numbers you call on your phone to signal an emergency; it much of the world they go date/month not month/date. The towers fell on 11-9. But I do like writing 9 10 11 although I am way off topic — 6/9, 6/10, 6/11. We — Scott and I –were talking about whether our September show would suffer from the Niners game on tv versus the Rams. The only conflict I have with being a football fan is that if I host a show when the Niners host the Cowboys, we will go early, a matinee. 

I have 66 advance tickets for Laurie Lewis tomorrow at the Mitch — but I don’t think that means its the mark of the devil.
