SUBMIT HERE: (Places to show your art)

1) I am looking for independent musicians and bands who would be interested
in licensing recordings to me at a reasonable fee for an innovative
burlesque exercise video project. I have been teaching "Burlesquercise!"
dance classes for almost 3 years now, gaining attention from local as well
as national press (, Tucker Carlson, Skin and Ink Magazine, The
SF Guardian, etc). Once this project goes live, I will be sending out press
packages to all of the major womens magazines, health magazines, newspapers,
etc. "Burlesquercise!" is set to become the next big craze, so any band
associated with the project will benefit from all of this exposure.

If your band has an old-timey feel, or if you play jazz, blues, funk, folk,
rockabilly, psychobilly, surf, or other music appropriate for burlesque,
don't miss out on this fabulous opportunity!

I am planning to go live with these videos in November/December 2006, so
please contact me ASAP to get the ball rolling. You can find more info about
"Burlesquercise!" at Thank you for your
consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Shake a tail feather!

2) Greetings. Here's an update on The Messenger, Independent Arts & Media's
new quarterly newspaper.

-- The first issue hit the streets in early September. It was a feast of
words, images, ideas, all tied together by breezily opportunistic art
direction and editing. We ended up adding an extra sheet to present the
combined work of more than 20 contributors using words and images. You may
still be able to find it around the Bay Area. If not, we have a few archival
bundles at Indy Arts HQ in SF. East Bay folks, check with 21 Grand --

-- Issue two, the Winter 2006 edition, is targeted for mid-December, and
will address the theme of "Power & Democracy." Our editorial focus is "DIY
plus manifesto," and in this regard we welcome fresh ideas and perspectives,
project reports, eyewitness accounts, modest proposals, utopian daydreams,
resource listings, illustrations, previews, features, how-to guides,
documentation of creative interventions, etc. You can download a PDF of the
writer's guidelines here:

-- If you'd like to advertise, sponsor or subscribe to The Messenger, please
respond to this email, or call Indy Arts at 415/861-5302.

Thank you for your support of independent culture & community!
