Verdugo HUUT! #18: Bowie on the Moon



We can be heroes in our hootenanny in the hills! To celebrate both the 50th anniversary of the moon landing (July 20) and the release of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" (July 11), The Verdugo HUUT! is hosting an evening chock full o' starmen, spaceboys, and Major Tom. We may even see if there is life on Mars. The 18th Verdugo HUUT! will feature a larger bill than usual (like our Beatles show last July) and, as always, the evening will be light, friendly, compelling, and filled with coffee, snacks, and prizes. Starring  Tom Bishel, Carla Rudy, Carol McArthur, Mitchell Schaffer, David Kayfman,and other special guests TBA. Hosted by Marty Barrett.

Recommended donation: $10

Show begins at 7 p.m.

Sunday Service: Why Are You A UU?
Congregation Leader: Ann Kleinsasser

 

“This feels like home” is the comment we often hear from people visiting our church for the first time.  Although we come from many different spiritual and religious backgrounds, something about Unitarian Universalism draws us together and inspires us.  Today we hear from several members of the congregation about their spiritual journeys and how those journeys brought them here.

The Verdugo HUUT! is a family-oriented show for audience members 12 and up.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Each month UUVerdugo hosts a great selection of L.A.-area musicians, comedians, writers, and storytellers for our curated "Hootenanny in the Hills": The Verdugo HUUT!

This most-ages show (we recommend 12 and up) features all the friendly and familiar aspects of the Greenwich Village "hoots" of the 1960s that introduced the world to Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Joan Baez, and Judy Collins, and that have been captured in movies like "Inside Llewyn Davis" and TV's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."

But our HUUT! goes one better: we have low-cost snacks, the occasional Powerpoint presentation, and the best urn-based coffee on either side of the Foothill freeway.

Past shows have included "Your Valentine Is Wrong," "Reassurance And/Or Despair," "Whiskey in the Jar And Other Vices," and "Tape from California." Gracing the stage of our acoustically-lovely 100-seat sanctuary have been Lisa Finnie, Art Stucco, Jon Raymond Fisher, Mitchell Schaffer, Ric Taylor, Carrie Wade, Ben and Lisa Marie Deily (Varsity Drag), Non Duo, Jordan Kurtzman, Julie Perkins, Gabriela Gonzalez, Marisol Barrett, Jan Davidson, Faded Echo, Daily Cry (John Crye and Bill Daly), Fogelfoot, Josh Lewis, Alex Acevedo, Ken Lasaine, Michelle Gardner, Tom Bishel, Marisol Barrett, Carleen Carney, Raspin Stuwart, Phil Ward, Stand Easy, David Kaufman, and Gregory Ivan Smith.
