Bird Open House May 16

Saturday, May 16 from Noon-3pm Bird will be participating in the 2009 Polk Street Merchant’s Fair. We’ll be having a sidewalk music sale (bring your old records/tshirts/memorabilia/etc.), a bench concert (we’re looking for interested students to jam on the curb), and a BBQ, among other things. We want to open up the studio for the students and their families to share what we do and hopefully bring in some interested neighbors. Bring your friends and family and we hope to see you here! »
