Buttonwood Tree Events - great music & so much more
This weekend at the Buttonwood Tree...
On Wednesday: KARAOKE with Deni! Starting at 7 pm, come sing your heart out! All are welcome.
On Friday: an indie rock triple bill! HIGHER ANIMALS with ROBERT DON and GRAND COUSIN, starting at 8 pm. Tickets are $10, $5 with student ID. Higher Animals play original indie-pop-waltz music written and developed by all four band members; their love of music and natural chemistry makes this captivating band a must-see performance. Robert Don and Grand Cousin are both Wesleyan indie rock bands, playing at the Buttonwood for the first time!
Our Saturday mornings are packed, as always, with events to strengthen your body and nourish your soul. Qigong starts at 7:30, followed by Community Yoga at 8:45, both free events. The "Aligned with Source" workshop led by Spiritual & Holisitic Healer Annaita Gandhy starts at 10:30; the theme this week is 'Who or What Do You Serve?'. There is a $5 suggested donation, but no one is turned away from Buttonwood events for lack of funds.
Then, on Saturday night, two great folk acts: GREG KLYMA and CON & CAROLE at 8 pm. Greg Klyma is a storyteller, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who weaves his skills together into impeccably crafted sets. He is a young artist with old-school populist ideals, and he strives to keep the timeless American folk tradition alive. Con & Carole are coming to bring original music, rare chemistry and humor. Expect to hear songs that range from whimsical to self-revelatory; in folk, blues, and folk-rock veins. Be inspired by this musical tour of the human condition.
And don't miss the Great Make Believe Improv Show on Sunday at 6 pm. Watch The Great Make Believe Society perform different kinds of improv comedy! See the styles of improv comedy popular in Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, and New York! Watch improvised scenes created right before your eyes, based on your suggestions!
