Come out to support community radio in our area! The Spotty Dog invites you to drop in on the Vernal Equinox for a day of music, arts, books, and community! 3 p.m. to late fundraiser for WGXC!

Today at Spotty Dog Books & Ale:

*Crafts with Lady Moon, suitable for the young and non-young alike! Invoke spring with some paper roses and sundry other festive crafts from this diversely talented lady. She'll be here starting at 3:00 to guide your nimble fingers!

*An array of local musicians, busking the afternoon away! Feel free to bring your own instrument and participate!

*A tasting with the LEE BROTHERS, whose latest cookbook, SIMPLE, FRESH, SOUTHERN picks up where their James Beard-award winning Southern Cookbook left off! The charming Brothers Lee will bring along some of their southern delicacies for sampling, all recipes featured in their lushly illustrated, spectacular new book. http://mattleeandtedlee.com/lee-bros/

*At 7:00, music from an array of local talent: DJ Lunar Moss (aka Hank Flick): Having invigorated the Hudson nightlife with his Thursday night "Lunar Tonic" series at (p.m.), Moss' diverse collection of vinyl will see us through the evening.

Rob Hervey, master digeridoo-trance wild man will invoke the season with his blissed-out sonic stylings. http://cdbaby.com/cd/rhervey also check out http://www.myspace.com/robhervey

Lady Moon's soulful, ever-shifting sound has recently reached new heights of ephemeral beauty. Settle in and absorb her spell.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlwHO9N5YGo Evan Randall and his jazz-drenched old-time antics reimagine tunes both familiar and obscure in his idiosyncratic and unbearably endearing personal style. http://www.myspace.com/evanrandall

Matthew O'Koren's percussive stylings form the backbone of his metal band, COSMOPOLITAN, though he proves equally compelling as Alexander Turnquist's go-to man for ambient back-up. Come see him perform solo, where his wit and weirdness can be explored in full.

Brian Dewan's vocal music is of a sort that tends to reference folk music, hymns, century-old popular music and rock music, and features his genius original instruments. A pillar of insane, singular talent. http://www.dewanatron.com

Alexander Turnquist's luminous guitar is at once rousing and somnolent, a meditation in aspic. Watch his fingers make mincemeat of his twelve-string, and hear his latest compositions. http://www.myspace.com/alexanderturnquist
