For the Birds

Livestreaming Concert for World Migratory Bird Day – May 11th, 2024

Marian has many songs about birds — it’s almost as if they’ve inspired humans for millennia or something — and so this World Migratory Bird Day she’s playing a livestreaming show on Bandcamp to share some of those songs, and to support the wild habitat that our feathered friends rely on. 20% of overall proceeds from this show will be donated to watershed restoration efforts in Alaska (a destination of choice for the discerning migratory bird).

Where: Bandcamp.com/mariancall

When: Saturday, May 11th, 2024 noon AKDT / 1pm PDT / 4pm EDT – ticketholders may view concert for 48 hours after live show

Because this is a fundraising effort, tickets are $5+ pay-as-you-can, available now on Bandcamp. Patreon backers and Donors’ Circle members may attend for free by contacting Marian by email or Patreon comment.

On Saturday, Feb. 24th, 2024, Marian Call turns 42.

Glitter, Dammit

A very different kind of carol for Christmas: Put some glitter on it, dammit.

Honest, intense, funny, a little dark, and most of all — sparkly.
