Flames of Durga

Here is my interview with the band Flames of Durga, who recently came through Bisbee. It was recorded late at night after drunkenly stumbling around Bisbee to get to the KBRP studio.

Scott Warren Found Not-Guilty

I just wanted to give an update about the Scott Warren trial. Last month, he was found not-guilty of all charges against him. This write up by Time Magazine (link below) reminds us however, that there has been an increase of interrogation of aid workers and also journalists under the current administration. Scott Warren's verdict is an important one, but does not signify the end of close surveillance and interrogation, even possibly harassment, of those who are trying to prevent deaths in the desert.

Ron Wolfwalker

Ron Wolfwalker is a writer relatively new to Bisbee. Before he lived in Arizona, he had himself all over the country, originally growing up on reservation land in southern Florida. Many of his fans know his sci fi series, 'Teep', as well as his more recent 'Death God' Series. He writes science fiction and urban fantasy with gay lead characters... he fits right in here in Bisbee! Ron Wolfwalker Ebooks Ron Wolfwalker Paperback

No More Deaths - Media Coordinator

I headed up to Tucson this week to sit down with the media coordinator for the organization No More Deaths. You can find more information at the links below. We talked about the history of the organization, humanitarian aid and border issues in general, and discussed in length the landmark Dr. Scott Warren court case. His second trial will be later this year, and the organization is trying to mobilize people from all over to come to Tucson ahead of the trial, for the months of September, October and November. Volunteers will receive shelter, food, and transportation around Tucson. More information can be found at the No More Deaths website below. Ellos necesitan personas que pueden hablar español para trabajar como voluntarios; hablantes nativos y personas bilingües. El sitio de No Más Muertes tiene un versión en español.

UPDATE / Tina and Her Pony at The Royale

I just wanted to update everyone. I'm still doing interviews, and have just been on hiatus. They will be few and far between though. Feel free to reach out at bisbeelive@gmail.com . Tina and Her Pony, a great Americana/Folk band based in Asheville, NC, will be in Bisbee on July 18th, at the Royale. I'll be sitting down with them most likely to do a long-form interview to talk about Asheville and what they've been up to since I last saw them, which was when I opened up for Tina and Her Pony in Phoenix years back, while I was still playing under the name Ancillary Atoms. So, make sure to subscribe to the podcast so you don't miss the interview once I drop it. Here is a video and some links. Tina and Her Pony July 18th @ The Bisbee Royale
