You’re Going To Die: Poetry, Prose & Everything Goes


You’re Going To Die: Poetry, Prose & Everything Goes YG2D is a grief open mic event, communal offering to explore the conversation of death & dying, to grieve, bereave & honor those we’ve lost & love while all the while making room for simply being ALIVE. Arrive early to sign-up. Hosted by Ned Buskirk with music from Brian Belknap.

Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter Brian Belknap’s music is a rough blend of broke-down folk, junk-country blues, and gut-bucket gospel, rendered on accordion, slide guitar, and mandolin, a product of the rich cultures of San Francisco and New Orleans, the two cities he calls home.

Building the future of the arts one show at a time

The Lost Church on Columbus Street in North Beach gives the impression of a speakeasy. The doorway is small, and the club itself is down a long, narrow descending flight of stairs. The stairwell opens up on a small cozy space, with a small stage, a merch table off to one side, seating for 99 people and a bit of standing room. It’s perfect for intimate performances. The place is the brainchild of Brett and Elizabeth Cline and actually began when they turned the living room of their apartment into a small theater. 

“My wife and I had a band called Juanita and the Rabbit,” Brett Cline explained. “It was a duo, with me on a six-string bass that can play rhythm and melody, and Liz on drums. We wanted to tour, so we rented out our house, moved into a van and toured for about six years, but being on the road is tough. I was getting older, and we wanted to have kids, so we came back home.” 

As they settled in, they realized they missed performing and interacting with other bands. “I told Liz we could run a theater in our big living room, if she was willing to work the bar, while I handled the booking and ran the shows,” Cline said. “I’d been working as a stagehand in San Francisco theaters for about 10 years, so I knew what went on backstage. She sewed some curtains, designed the lighting and redecorated the room. 

“It took about four months to build the first iteration. It went through three different remodels as we developed the space. I had a small indie label called…

A music photographers dream! Being a music photographer is never usually boring…Especially not this job. On this night, I was hired by music producer John Hopen of Love Conquered Records/Wild Turkey Studios to photograph his artist, singer songwriter BenjaSoul. He was performing on Sunday night (Feb 26), at The Lost Church in Santa Rosa. I didn’t know what to expect other than what I saw on the internet, so I was pleasantly surprised when at the end of his sho…

Ticket Sales Alone Don't Keep Theaters Open...Donors Do

From Your Everlovin’ Editor

Hello, hello,

We’re feeling mighty blessed to have the recent wonderful articles written about our two theaters, the new podcast interviews we got do, and the fun radio station on-air visits we made over the last couple of months.

I suppose that getting to fire up our old San Francisco “Blessed” Stamp that we bestow on you when you come through the door of our new North Beach Theater is reverberating back to bless us in many ways with every ticket you buy.

Let’s keep the circle of love going this week.
