Johnny Marr at The Grog Shop, Cleveland, Ohio 11-13-13
I went to Johnny Marr’s show at the Grog Shop this Wednesday and wow was I blown away. This was my first time being at the Grog Shop and also seeing Johnny Marr. The Grog Shop is a really small venue and I was lucky enough to be right against the stage and right in front of Johnny Marr. (Also I snagged a setlist ;)). The show was great, Johnny Marr had a better stage presence then I could have imagined. He talked to the crowd, he was full of energy, and he played alot of music. He played mostly his own stuff but also played 6 Smiths songs including: How Soon Is Now?, Bigmouth Strikes Again, and Panic. I definitely won’t be forgetting this one.
Oh and I also had a nice conversation about Joy Division with a group of drunk women.
Kathy Klein is a devout lover of plants, animals, people and the divine presence within all. She creates the danmalas by first centering herself in a meditative devotional space. Next she gathers flowers and natural objects while her mind is kept in mantra, resting in the immaterial. Then, through an act of grace and giving to all, she allows the materials to fall to the will of creation patterns. Her inspiration is given from the golden sound residing within perfect silence. They are reflections of the inexpressible, a gesture which points towards life’s abundance, an unspoken verse of Love. The danmalas remind us all to listen to the unheard voice of nature, creation, and the eternal mystery.
