WHAT: SPRING HOUSE CONCERT: MERIDIAN is Bradley Valentin & Yohimbe Sampson: “Somewhere between Prince and Def Leppard, NYC group Meridian is a fuzzed-out, synth-laden, soulful tribute to 80’s soundtracks and acid-washed denim. Their sound washes over you and lifts you into the ether with invigorating melodies and thoughtful songwriting.” (http://nyc.thedelimagazine.com/15175/nyc-synth-pop-bands-on-rise-meridian). Please come and enjoy a nice buffet, with special spring tapas… You are welcome to bring a dish or a pie or a drink to enrich our spring buffet. There will be a (cash) bar with some special margaritas and home made refreshing cocktails! At 9:00 pm the band will be playing, so get ready to dance… or chill out… or both…

WHAT: New Saloon’s Debut of the production, “I’m Miserable But Change Scares Me.” This play is an existential sitcom about co-dependency and stagnation; it explores the ways we use language to use each other. At times raucously quirky, at times startlingly tragic, I’M MISERABLE magnifies multiple elements of relationships. It’s a play about lies, truths, and misunderstandings. The characters weave through performances of self as they address issues of love, fear, and designer denim.
