|What?||Pianist needed for house-band jazz gig in Milwaukee|
|The details…||Terrazzo, a local jazz trio, is in need of a pianist. The band is Carlos Adames on drums/percussion, myself and a number of pianists who rotate with us depending on availability. But we need someone who can commit to 2-3 nights per week on a regular basis.
We play a mix of jazz standards, Latin jazz and jazz-influenced pop.
This house gig is in one of Milwaukee’s finest and well-known drinking establishments. For the players, this equates to good pay, friendly clientele and a comfortable environment to ply your craft.
If you can read charts and enjoy playing jazz in a trio format, please contact me to set up a time to meet.

|The details…||Within the confines of MIAD you live in an environment of almost complete artistic freedom, but that freedom falls away quickly when you leave the campus. Recently students have put themselves in dangerous situations and have been arrested for trespassing and graffiti while doing course related projects. If you have any question about whether your art project is remotely dangerous or illegal please seek clarification from your faculty, the Dean of Student’s Office or Campus Security first. There are usually safe and legal ways of accomplishing your goals if you seek permission first. Have a safe end of semester!|

YOU AND A GUEST ARE INVITED
TO A FREE PREVIEW SCREENING OF:
Wednesday, 09 December 2009 @ 7:30 pm
2500 Mayfair Road – Wauwatosa, WI
Writer/director Nancy Meyers (Something’s Gotta Give, The Holiday) directs Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin in It’s Complicated, a comedy about love, divorce and everything in between.
Jane (Streep) is the mother of three grown kids, owns a thriving Santa Barbara bakery/restaurant and has—after a decade of divorce—an amicable relationship with her ex-husband, attorney Jake (Baldwin). But when Jane and Jake find themselves out of town for their son’s college graduation, things start to get complicated. An innocent meal together turns into the unimaginable—an affair. With Jake remarried to the much younger Agness (Lake Bell), Jane is now, of all things, the other woman.
Caught in the middle of their renewed romance is Adam (Martin), an architect hired to remodel Jane’s kitchen. Healing from a divorce of his own, Adam starts to fall for Jane, but soon realizes he’s become part of a love triangle.
Should Jane and Jake move on with their lives, or is love truly lovelier the second time around? It’s…complicated.
