But there is one uniquely Fresno insitution that I have yet to experience, and I am sort of sad about that. That is Rogue Festival. It's often hard for me as a mom to get out and take time for something that is purely for me. And while many of the shows are family friendly, I just seem to never be able to get to them. Schedule conflicts, runny noses, and more have conspired to keep me away.
So this year, I am going to really, really try to make it to one or two shows. But for those of you who are able, let me point out some of my friends and acquaintances who will be preforming for your pleasure!
Tanjora Tribal Bellydance, includes my friend Lydia. Their show Sea of Dreams will be:

We play traditional Irish songs for pints of Guinness. Though we endeavor to maintain our dignity and our quality, as the night goes on… we make no promises. What’s a few sour notes over a pint of bitter with your friends? — Deric McQueen, Kim Hamilton, Sean McBrearty, Russell Noland
