Also, I made a decision on 9.7.14 to prove my artistic worth to you over the next 30 days, and BeTh's 30 Day Challenge was born. So far, in the first 10 days, I've posted almost 30 items of lovely free content for you to peruse if you choose. http://www.patreon.com/BeThisBell?ty=c Patreon is a cool arts patron site where for as little as $1/month (you set your limit) you can pledge support for your favorite artists! And you can check out all the free content I've already posted without having to sign up or pledge.
(And if you do decide to pledge, I promise I won't post more than one or two pieces of paid content per month).
The past weekend I had the opportunity to play lead guitar with my friend Sarah Torres at Humboldt Pride! It's pretty fun to play on a stage where you can see the ocean to all your fun-loving friends! Here's the audio from our performance that day: https://soundcloud.com/bethisbell/humboldt-pride Check it out, I really like Sarah's indie folk pop singer-songwriter style songs, I think you might too!
After Pride, we drove up in the mountains to play a show at Mad River Brewery in Blue Lake, CA. And this beautiful thing happened: Bleed ... http://songwriter.amplifiertv.com/channel/BeTh+isBell ... To "bleed," n., meaning to pour your soul out ... it's now entered in the Guitar Center national singer-songwriter contest. It would mean a lot to me if you could go there & vote for it, if you dig it! Thanks!
And early Saturday morning before Pride, my new radio show The Flower Power Hour debuted on KMUD. It's a fun good vibe program showcasing psychedelic music from the current indie rock scene all the way back to Haight-Ashbury, complete with beat poetry, great music, and lots of laughs. It airs every Saturday morning from 4am-5am (PST)! So if you're on the East Coast or in the Midwest, make it your morning show if you wake up that early on Saturdays, or if you're still awake from your Friday night! Also, if you're in London it's on at Noon on Saturdays, or 1pm if you're in other parts of Europe. And it's on Friday nights if you're in Australia, New Zealand or Japan/Asia. You can listen live to the show broadcast from anywhere in the world on-line at http://www.kmud.org or listen anytime at your leisure in the show archives at the station's website. And for those of you who missed the first episode, here it is: https://soundcloud.com/theflowerpowerhour/the-flower-power-hour-ep1
OK, that's a lot to digest, so I'll save the bit about my new poetry & children's books for the next newsletter. There really is a lot of cool artistic stuff - poems, songs, videos, radio shows, etc. posted at the Patreon site for my 30 Day Challenge, I really hope you'll check it out. I'm sure you'll find something you love. And, I hate asking for votes, but the song I posted in the guitar center contest is really sweet, so if you can help a girl out, much love & many thanks! I'm trying pretty hard these days to create art that I love, and hopefully, that you will love too! That's my goal, to keep you happy with cool new art! So thanks very much for your support. It really does mean a lot to me. Thanks!
