From: user 4.

Announcing a new meeting for The DC Area Folk SOJO (Sing Out Jam Out)!

What: Mid-April Before-Your-Seder Sing Out-Jam Out

When: Saturday, April 19, 2:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Who should come: You... and you... and YOU! And... and... and: YOUR GUEST(S)!

Why: You WILL enjoy it... and so will: YOUR GUESTS(S)! RSVP and if you can, at It's nice to see who might come, and it helps us know how many chairs we'll need and how to set up the room.

Meeting Description: Mid-April reminds us of the Three Certainties:

(1) Death... (2) TAXES... (3) SOJO ! *

(*Apologies to my old schoolmate, the great Roz Chast. Her 1981 "Three Certainties" cartoon -- thanks to which Ben Franklin's two certainties have long ago been supplanted in my brane -- seems to be nowhere on the Web, and I won't infringe copyright by posting it; but here's a description:

There will certainly be a Sing Out-Jam Out (SOJO) at our usual indoor Crystal City location on Saturday, April 19 from 2 to 5 pm, and it will <Curly> soitenly </Curly> be a lot more fun if YOU are there! (And: YOUR GUEST(S)!) Come and sing and/or play and/or listen; bring your copy of Rise Up Singing (Caryn or Elie or Margi will have some new or gently used ones for sale, or for lending to first-timers; and anyone who dares can borrow my notorious, recently-replaced first edition, which is held together, somewhat, by an elastic) and some water to quench your cantogenic thirst (bottled water is sold in nearby stores and from a vending machine in the basement laundry room).

I'll walk over from my office a few days before the 19th and pay the building management the $75 it costs us to rent the room for 3 hours. When we meet, there'll be a box on the table with a sign asking if you can spare $4 or so toward the rent. I'm not very concerned about making the $75 back (as it happens, I usually do make most of it back, and a few generous folks have even insisted on reimbursing me in advance against any future shortfalls), but I am very concerned that some people may stay away from SOJO because of money. So if you can't or won't spare $4, or anything at all, don't worry about it -- come anyway. Dayenu, dayenu.

Your fond fiend and bother,
(**"Freddy is this Meetup's Rentboy.")
