Alix Dobkin: My Red Blood Concert
Alix Dobkin, singer/activist/groundbreaker, known for many decades as Head Lesbian, returns to the Bay Area for a book release Concert of music and readings on Saturday, June 12, 2010 at the Montclair Women's Club, Oakland. Alix has written a personal biography covering her life beginning as a red-diaper baby, into the folk scene of Greenwich Village that provided the "soundtrack" of a social/cultural/political revolution of the 60's and 70's, and on to rise of the second wave of the women's movement, aka the Feminist Revolution. We know that Alix is a storyteller and a wordsmith so we expect much. Well, more than Much is given. This book is captivating from the first page. It tells Alix's story but it also gives truth and legitimacy to a powerful part of America's often under-told history. So come for the concert of old favorite songs and hot off the press readings from Alix's autobiography, My Red Blood. It is especially celebratory for us at the Club because it is a homecoming. Alix walked into the Club we first arrived and was a major part of bringing the Club to life with her blood, sweat and tears. Not to mention songs and paintings. She was the original host of our Third Thursday open mic night. She even poured coffee at the Sunday Brunches. She is ours! Let's give her a Big Welcome Home!!
