Come on Out!

If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area:
Mitra and Pedram of The Eyeranian will be coming up for the long weekend. They have suggested a get together with other bloggers/blog readers/vivacious folks who are in the area, and yours truly has agreed to coordinate the whole thing. We are thinking of Saturday afternoon somewhere in the East Bay. If you are interested, send me an email, and I'll get back to you with details.

If you are in London:
There is a vigil tomorrow evening in parliament square to protest Israeli war crimes in Gaza.

Bombing bridges and electric plants are acts of collective punishment and are clear cases of war crimes, even if one if gullible enough to believe that Israel is carrying out these acts over one kidnapped soldier.

If you are near Northern Virginia
Tomorrow night (June 30) at 7:30 pm there will be a free concert of Iranian music in the Mason District Park at 6621 Columbia Pike, Annandale, Va. 22003. Noorsaz ensemble will be performing at the outdoor amphitheatre, and you can hear their entire concert here. (I've been told that the first song is the not the best of their ensemble, so be patient!)
