Izenmania plays with flowers

Mister Fusion headlines Seymour Second Sunday


By now, everyone should know what that means ... music at the W.W. Seymour Conservatory at Wright Park. Every month on the second Sunday of the month, cool and groovy local musicians showcase their talents at the Seymour Conservatory from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM.

That's at 316 S. G St.

This month, the headliner is Mister Fusion, a duo comprised of our own Joe Izenman and his buddy, Erich Sachs. They write their own songs and then sing them out loud using their very own voices. There are guitars involved, as well as a doumbek (it's a drum) and sometimes even a Melodica (image provided ... ignore the dad in the background ... couldn't crop him out). They are committed to bringing their youthful energy and talent to this venerable location, and have promised to scare neither the flowers nor the assembled patrons.

We (that's me) hope y'all will consider making these Second Sunday events a regular part of your musical and botanical education. They (Joe and Erich) hope you'll start doing so, if you haven't already, this coming Sunday.

This event is on my "must do" list. Yeah, definitely. Along with dropping 40 lbs and single handedly dismantling idiotic television media, it's on my list. I hope to make it.

Will the one-lense sunglasses come out to play?

Probably not. Those were a spontaneous addition last time. And they started the show as two-lens sunglasses. The single-lensedness was a surprise bonus.

Reminder to the world: this is today! And if you haven't changed your clocks already, it's an hour sooner than you think!

Thanks all who braved the snow, only to be blinded and melted by sitting in a greenhouse under direct sunlight.
