Reminder : May 20th at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center

May 20th : Mari Mack & Livin' Like Kings benefit for the San Geronimo Valley Community Center - a benefit for their arts fund. Oddly enough, I had intended this to be a benefit for the Affordable Housing Association, but they passed on our offer to help so as not to make it seem as if they were endorsing my candidacy. Politics is a funny thing. 
So, hopefully, after the election, we can do another show as a benefit for that organization. Sending love and light to all. Hope you can make it. The SGVCC has a wonderful vibe - it's everything that a community center should be. First did a gig there about 20 years ago with Greggs Eggs!

Show starts at 8 pm! Get there early so we can hang out. 

This is our last gig for another while. Arne is having back surgery on Monday. Please send some good vibes. 


Very grateful to be joined by many friends for this show : 
Dore Coller, Pat Campbell, Tomas D., Roberta Donnay, Willow Van de Hoek, Stephen Farzad, too many to list!

Weds. 5/18/2016

Hey Everybody!
Writing this from Mama's on Miller. So glad to have a new phone, since my other one just stopped working a couple of weeks ago.
Thank you monthly payment plan.

Giving thanks for another beautiful day, as yesterday is already gone. I received some startling news on Monday, wrote about that on Medium. My account there is @maritamburo

Look back to learn, look forward with hope and live in the moment! I can no longer waste precious moments of my life feeling sad.

Tonight, my District 4 co-candidates and I are addressing engaged residents of Corte Madera courtesy of the Lions club and then I'm over the GGB to Slim's to join my musical friends in a "Blues for Bernie" fundraiser. We certainly are living in interesting times.

Speaking of Senator Sanders, as you may already know, he is in the Bay Area today, in Santa Clara and then Vallejo. It would be fun for him to stop by Slim's, but let's not hold our collective breath on that one.

May 19th, another Candidate Night, this time at the Muir Woods Park Community Association.

Friday night, the 20th- we are getting together to play some music with friends to raise some funds for the San Geronimo Valley Community Center Arts fund. Doors are at 7:30. Great place, really great vibe. Please join us if you can. $12

Saturday, I'm back in Homestead for another candidate forum. This one in the afternoon from 4 - 8.

Monday is a big day, as my husband is having surgery. Please send good  thoughts.

Thanks in advance.

Musings : 5/9/2016

Hey Everybody!

I hope you had a beautiful weekend filled with love, laughter, music, dance art or whatever fills your heart and soul. We spent our weekend just being together. Yesterday was an emotional day for some of us, Arne took me to brunch. Every day we give thanks for our life together. Gratitude is everything.

Next Show : May 20th : Mari Mack, MMLK plus Friends at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center :  A portion of the proceeds will benefit the San Geronimo Affordable Housing Association.
They are doing great work. We are facing a housing crisis in Marin and developers are circling, trying to cram more hideous high density housing along the corridor.

I'm still gathering friends and musicians for this show. If you haven't heard from me yet. don't take it personally - my phone died last week, so I couldn't respond to texts. No worries, as I have a new one and will be contacting folks today between preparations for tonight's League of Women Voters' Candidate Forum for District 4 Candidates: Please keep in mind that each vote a Supervisor makes impacts all of Marin - so if you have time, please get involved with this process in some way.

Hope you have a great week!


p.s. I posted my first bit of writing on Medium. Check it out.

Plus, I came across this video, thought it worth a share:

Show Date Changes

Hey All!

Just a quick note to let you know  - I'm postponing the May 12th show - just too much going on to get that one together. Maybe I will see you down the street that night, since Steve Kimock is playing the Sweetwater.

That said we are going full STEAM ahead with the May 20th date at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center :

Mari Mack & Friends - proceeds to benefit the San Geronimo Affordable Housing Association.

I'm also going to invite the other candidates to the show, so we can all have a chance to get to know each other better.


p.s. Details to follow on Monday. Have a great weekend!

Musings : 5/2/2016

Hey Everybody!

Love and hugs to you all - hope you are having a wonderful Monday morning! If you dread Mondays. change your job or change your attitude about it.

Sending Happy Birthday wishes to anyone whose birthday it is today.

I'm going to be at the Sweetwater tonight, just hanging out. I have some flyers and bumper stickers to give away if you would like to help me get the word out about my bid for Supervisor.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to say "hello" to our soon to be ex Supervisor Steve Kinsey, who is looking a lot more relaxed than when we were in the midst of that sidewalk mess. I'm really happy for him.

TWO upcoming shows : May 12th (Thursday) at the Throckmorton - LOTS of special guests.
and May 20th at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center

This week I have another candidate forum - May 4th - out at the Dance Palace in Point Reyes.

If you want to follow my other blog - go sign up there :

Shout out to Radiohead for another brilliant marketing move to erase all their internet "stuff" - one of these days. I will just sit myself in a shack and make music.

Until then, I just want to keep the troll in Homestead.
