Mr. Fusion @ Artwalk

Posted due to feed issues not pulling in the real blog about our gig at the Neighborhood Clinic fundraser at Watermark Gifts tonight:

http://blog.izenman.com/2009/03/mr-fusion-artwalk.html

That is all! Hope those of you who are wandering around Artwalk have a chance to stop in. We should be starting early enough that you can catch a few songs before you have to leave in order to catch the music up at Sanford & Son.

Okay, now it's up for reals, a bit down the page. Thanks Kevin!

I heard on the street that the Art Walk programs were being canceled. Is that true, and if it is, will tonight be the last one?

I have heard no such news. I suppose it's possible, but I doubt it. It's one of the only things that brings the kind of foot traffic the city wants to see in downtown Tacoma.

I've said it before, but for newcomers, Watermark has been a great downtown Tacoma institution longer than most of you have been alive, from its infancy at the long-gone Court C Shops to when it was the Underground when I first became a customer, to itís beautiful current store. I hope I can break free this evening to catch you guys, Iz.

We missed the watermark, but caught the show at the Helm, two of the three museums and the music at Sanford & Sons. Had a great time and hope to return for another art walk.

The Arts Walk brings in foot traffic? Sure could have fooled me.

Had a lot of fun playing last night. It really is an awesome little space, and with the balcony overlooking the main sales floor is remarkably well suited to having music while people munch and shop.

Also thanks to Dave for coming out.

You guys sounded great, and that was the tallest stage I've ever seen. But you're right; it works. I've seem more attentive audiences, but everyone was nice and it was a fun, worthy event. I hope they raised some decent money, between sales and the donation box, and I think it brought in a few new customers to Watermark. I hadn't seen Karen an Maggie from the shop in a long time, plus I found a few gifts to purchase. Later stopped at the Impromptu then caught the Urban Orchestra downstairs at Sanford and Son and Deb upstairs. True, there wasn't much foot traffic on the street let alone in shops. Mid-Level Shops seemed to be devoid of potential customers.
