What do your weekend plans look like? Staying inside? Good for you! Here’s a list of suggestions to help you stay entertained.
High fives to the great Alanna Stuart from Bonjay for posting this recommendation. Check out this episode from the Bob Marley Legacy series which focuses on, as she says “Women in music – a Jamaican perspective – in the past, present and future tenses.”
We’re back at it again tonight with The Elwins and their pick Wet Hot American Summer! Think of Netflix Party as Band and a Movie… but you can chat in real time while watching at home on Netflix. All you have to do is download the Netflix Chrome extension before logging in via the link to the movie before it starts at 8pm, it’s very easy. See you in the chat!

Give yourself a foot massage
Look, I’m no reflexology expert, but I got a $10 foot massage while on vacation a while back and I can’t stop thinking about the chart on the wall showing how your organs are all somehow connected to your feet. Whether it’s true or not, in the end, it was 10 minutes of heaven and I slept like a baby that night.
Here’s some instructions on DIY foot reflexology.
Good news – even if you mess up, you still get a foot massage!
Merch of the Day
The Rivoli have recently launched a Rivoli Home Sessions Fund, calling it “virtual tip jar” to help pay the artists who have volunteered to be part of the Riv’s online Home Sessions – Artist Takeover Series. If you donate $30+ you get this t-shirt too! Help out a band, a legendary venue and rock this sweet shirt.
Thanks for reading, take care of yourself over there!
