From Mike Kohn
Come out for a night of music with Social Media Club-DC when Annie Stela comes to town to perform on Thursday, October 28! She’ll be doing a one-night performance at Busboys and Poets at 5th and K St. NW at 9 pm. You’ll have the opportunity to hear some of Annie’s work and get a chance to win a signed copy of her CDs.
There is a $5 suggested donation (less than a lot of phone apps!), which will go to support education for HIV-affected youth in Rwanda as part of a Citizen Effect project. You can purchase tickets online.
The Annie Stela Story
After a childhood spent writing poems and songs in quiet suburban Michigan, Annie Stela moved to Los Angeles at the age of 22. She got a hard-core case of mono and some serious culture shock but, once she recovered, she was signed to Capitol Records. She recorded her debut full-length record, Fool, with producer Bill Bottrell (Sheryl Crow, Shelby Lynne) and, after fear over her label’s stability, released it independently on iTunes in early 2008.
