Friday, April 3, 2009 at 8pm come to PeaceSmiths’ Topical, A-Typical Folk Music, Poetry and Whatever Coffeehouse.
Got the blues? Come organize. It makes you feel better. We have a table full of info on local music, politics, petitions and community concerns. Come bring some literature and promote your favorite cause (or band!)
This month, featuring:
Poet Amy King: Poet Laureate of the Blogosphere
Phil Minissale: The Blues Boy of Long Island
Open Time – Maybe you!
Our PeaceSmiths coffeehouses are held at:
First United Methodist Church in Amityville
25 Broadway/rt110 (Southmost end near Merrick Rd/Montauk hwy)
This is a short car trip from the Amityville Train Station. (A little too far for most people to walk.) If you call a day or so in advance, we can arrange a pick up at the train station: (631) 798-0778, leave a message.

Less if necessary, more if possible.
