Welcome to Sacramento, CA., where the loquat trees are heavy with fruit and the roses are as big as your face. Visual and musical artist Christine Shields discusses inspirations, meditations, and ways of getting creatively “unstuck”.

Random person talks about the Red Man, aka “Prince Charm”:

“one time he was having a particularly lucid day, and I had been chatting him up / buying him drinks & smokes for a really long time (like years), and he invited me to his room for a drink. We went up there, to the SRO on 16th street, and when he opened the door, the whole room was filled with stuff, like floor to ceiling. The only space was right near the door, where there was a mattress, a chair with a TV on it and a giant box of red cosmetics of all types. he poured us 2 paper cups of vodka, which we drank in the hall. then he walked away and left me standing there.”


Sunday Music Extravaganza
