    May 5th 8:00PM at the nXcaffe CoffeeClub & ArtHouse promises to be an evening of raucous rebuttal. “You are no more to God than a loathsome spider is to you,” preached Jonathan Edwards [1703 – 1758] in his most infamous sermon, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. Taking the role of Spider’s Advocate, poet and professor John William Davies will revive Jesus Died For All Spiders, his spoken word / theatrical piece first performed in 1997. “This new version,” writes Davies, “features the hauntingly beautiful music of David Nigel Lloyd.” DNL, who was honored to be asked to help confront such festering lunacy, will perform a set of lesser heard songs from his seldom heard repertoire. You can help too, simply by being there. The nXcaffe CoffeeClub & ArtHouse is now Bakersfield’s premier (if not only) salon for intimate and engaged art events. It is, however, a By-Invitation-Only event. This is YOUR invitation. Contact nXc by phone at 1 661.301.1362 or or by email at nxccarthouse@gmail.com for directions and info.
