Naughton is probably the Janeane Garafalo of poetry. She is known for i will always be your whore [love songs for billy corgan], and has two new poetry collections coming out this year: I will always be in love, and you could never objectify me more than I've already objectified myself, forthcoming from Dig That Book Co. and Punk Hostage Press, respectively. Her debut novel, american mary, is forthcoming from Civil Coping Mechanisms in 2016.
After focusing on recording a full length album for quite some time, James Meder returns to the stage ready to deliver songs filled with intricately crafted guitar and word-smithery. Hailing from Oakland, California, do not miss the new album Aura—available now. An experience consuming eclectic sounds breathing new birth into genres ranging from traditional folk to experimental music. Listeners of Iron & Wine, Damien Rice, and Elliott Smith will enjoy James Meder's unique evocative delivery. James has shared the stage with bands such as Barcelona (Seattle), Not An Airplane (Stockton), Foxtails Brigade (San Francisco), and Matt Beutow (Portland).

There is ample street parking, but just to make it easy, there is an O'Reilly Auto Parts/Walgreens on the corner of Fruitvale and Foothill with a huge parking lot. Here's a Google Map link: https://www.google.com/maps/place/O'Reilly+Auto+Partsfirstname.lastname@example.org,-122.233008,14z/data=!4m5!1m2!2m1!1so+reilly+auto+parts+near+Foothill+Blvd,+Oakland,+CA!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0xa74c9fbc2152bd68
Nomadic Press should show up on that map as well. We are just in between Austin and Rutherford on Foothill.
Hope to see you soon!
