The California Honeydrops to play a benefit concert in Big Sur!

All is set for a fun family day at the Henry Miller Memorial Library in Big Sur on Sunday, October 12th, when the California Honeydrops and Banana Slug String Band come together in a benefit for the Gazebo Park pre-school at Esalen!

There will be face painting, children’s art areas and great food and drinks from the Esalen kitchen available.
Tickets are $35 for adults, $10 for kids 5 to 12 and free for those under 5. Proceeds from the show will be going towards our scholarship fund, which supports local families who may not otherwise be able to have access to this amazing early childhood education.

The Henry Miller Memorial Library is located at 48603 Highway One in Big Sur. Gates open at noon and the show starts at 1 pm.

Woodsist Records, run by the band Woods, brings out their stacked roster and a few friends for their annual festival at the Henry Miller Library

As part of Philip Glass’ Days and Nights festival, this very special evening will feature solo performances and collaborations between Joanna Newsom, Philip Glass and Tim Fain.  The event is a benefit for the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur to cover a massive upgrade project.

More about the Henry Miller Library:

In 1981, Emil White founded the Henry Miller Memorial Library in honor of his friend Henry Miller. Three decades later, thanks to the help of countless artists, musicians, and supporters the once sleepy bookstore/gallery has become one of the most innovative and awe-inspiring places in the world.

But the the place is in jeopardy. Federally-mandated health and safety requirements, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, requires upgrades that will cost a lot more than what the Library currently has in its savings. Proper plans for the required upgrades have been filed and, pending approval and FUNDING,
construction will start this Fall.

HMML has received permission to host an abbreviated 2012 (June - October) performance season Lucinda Williams, Jenny Lewis,  Woodsist Festival, Grandaddy, plus more to be announced very soon will perform @ HMML this season.

The impact of any donation made at this time will be immediate and meaningful: 
it will ensure the long-term survival of the Henry Miller Memorial Library.
