Wanna Make Some music?

This com­ing Sat­ur­day, August 24, we’re host­ing a house­filk here start­ing at 7 pm.

This is a lit­tle odd, since this is the sec­ond time we’ve host­ed a filk here but we’ve only actu­al­ly attend­ed one that was host­ed any­where else because we just don’t seem to get to the month­ly events. And we aren’t even heav­i­ly into filk, but I do love mak­ing music, and we have room to host it, so there ya go.

Any­way, if you’re with­in dri­ving dis­tance of the metro Atlanta area and read­ing this, you’re invit­ed. I don’t post phone num­bers or direc­tions on any kind of web­site, but if you’ll email me or sam­bear we’ll hap­pi­ly send along the rel­e­vant information.

Kids are wel­come and there’s a play­room down­stairs for them to hang out if they don’t want to be upstairs where the music is hap­pen­ing. There’s no smok­ing at all here, and we have a cat and a dog in the house if any­one has aller­gy con­cerns. Bring your voice, musi­cal instrument(s), and any­thing you want to sing. Copies of Rise Up Singing are good if you have them.

GaFiA, or Geor­gia Filk­ers Anonymous…
… is an orga­ni­za­tion of filk­ers who gath­er once a month for a house filk.
What is filk?

Com­mon­ly thought of as music based on sci­ence fic­tion or fan­ta­sy themes, filk evolved over the last fifty years into “any­thing sung by filk­ers.” This music genre encom­pass­es a broad range of styles, tal­ents, and per­form­ers, from solo artists to folk/rock bands to choirs. Some­times par­o­dies of pop­u­lar tunes are “bor­rowed,” but more often filk songs are orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions. Poet­ry, short fic­tion, schtick, ose (more-ose), and even improv the­atre appear from time to time. No holds are barred when it comes to topics.

The GaFiA spon­sored house filks pro­vide warm, friend­ly, and casu­al set­tings for enjoy­able evenings of filk, friends, and fun.

Come join in the harmony!
