Living Works Open Studio
MsTmusze to host Living Works Open Studio to share works completed and in progress. Details TBA soon. 

New Song: Hold The Line
Hold it long, hold it high
pass it on, before we die
we've got to hold the line

... are the last lines in a new song penned by MsTmusze adding to a repertoire of memorable titles and lyrics. Hold The Line is likely to be heard in upcoming performances joined by songs like Lipstick Baby Affair and Keep On, all of which are weaved with threads of urgency, protest and anti-apathy.



 
Lovely Outlaws
Revival Time: Folk Music and Volunteers
Long Beach Folk Revival Festival announced its full line up and opened its volunteer sign up list. This year's bands include highly anticipated headliner Deer Tick, returning crowd pleasers Snakearm (formerly Restavrant), the newly formed Lovely Outlaws. Volunteers returning and new can join the festival's street team and or help host the festival by signing up here today

Beach Streets Uptown, DJs Count and Paradise
MsTmusze had a great time at Beach Streets Uptown, a new Open Streets event held in Bixby Knolls which felt like a daytime mobile version of the community's First Friday's Art Walk. On the scene were many individuals, families, teenagers and grandparents (both local and visiting) happy to take over a portion of Atlantic Avenue with their feet, scooters, skates, bikes and at least one unicycle. Among them were notable Long Beach based movers and shakers including mayor Robert Garcia, Rancho Cerritos' volunteer "founding mother" Fanny Bixby and DJ Count. When DJ Count is not lining up turnt up bpms in back to back sets with DJ Paradise at the J Spot, he can be reached at irubrecords@gmail.com for special events and private parties.






Muliebrity at Cultural Alliance of Long Beach
MsTmusze gave a featured performance at the Cultural Alliance of Long Beach's Muliebrity Women in Art showcase with fellow poets and musicians led by Majic Bullet Theory band leader Dave Williams. Her set included Wash N Go and I Like To Hear Myself Speak, a poem about listening to jazz for the first time in a long time that has cues for brass, organ, cymbals and flute. MsT was glad to finally perform as envisioned accompanied by musicians capable of an organic sonic response.
