jackietorrance asked: OK SO I totally want to do a workshop. Things I know about and can talk about: recovery/addictions anything (I've been in recovery for years), beauty products/aromatherapy/skin care anything (I'm an esthetician), and sexuality issues such as BDSM (consent, BDSM 101), gender (Femme 101, gender spectrum, whatever), sexual assault (what is consent?/loving a survivor; etc).

Playing the Park: Doomstar! Closing out the amplified bicycle stage this year is the one-of-a-kind, DOOMSTAR! Dishing out double doses of psych-rock as appropriate in the hot sun as in dark corridors of cellars. They’re as hot as Saturday is supposed to be but will be keepin’ it cool all the same.
