Circle Video Party

Sunday, April 13, 2014
1-3 PM
Art Closet Studios
3951 Broadway (in the back of Open Fire Pizza)
$2 cover

Come help support our Circle Video Party this April. Please plan to come and stay the whole time. We need a big audience for these videos to sound "live". Each songwriter may choose one song they want filmed and posted on the Circle YouTube Site. This version will be free to paid up members. (Dandelion Films will also offer a DVD version for a discounted price.)
We will be in the back Rock n Roll stage. We will set up lights and studio mics to get a great live concert video of each song. This will be a greatest hits show.

Open Fire Wood Burning Pizza will be open all day, so you can plan on lunch or dinner there. Great pizza over a real fire. Espresso or beer. (Where else can you get Alfredo Pizza!)
