Saturday, July 12, 2008 at the Netroots Nation Dance Pavilion, Netroots Nation Island
5:00pm SLT - Robie Bloch, Singer/Songwriter Cathy Kreger's SL alter-ego brings us her "jump-up-and-dance" style of electro-acoustic folk rock.
6:00 pm SLT - JueL Resistance
Suzen JueL, a.k.a. JueL Resistance, is a self taught musician who has been performing since she was 13 years old. She has perfected the weaving of her mind's eye and heart's passion into lyrical paintings richly embedded with emotional hues from her personal experiences. Her lyrics feed the listener's soul and stirs the heart and sentiment of any who have been privileged to hear her perform them.
Her style and sound have been compared, both lyrically and vocally, to such legendary greats as Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Sue Foley, Leonard Cohen, Janis Joplin, Mazzy Star, Curt Cobain as well as a generous handful of other talented acoustic musicians.
You can find the schedule for the rest of the events at Thinking Liberallyand then go to the convention.
