THE BLOOM is a monthly literary series featuring Bay Area writer, where a past reader curates five of their fellow writers around a theme. It’s an entertaining evening of diverse voices and personal style, bridging narratives and communities. It was founded by Margaret Bacon, Tara Dorabji, and Jason Wyman in Summer of 2012. PERFORMERS OF CIRCUS BELLA. (NOTE: There will only some performers from Circus Bella present. This is not an entire Circus Bella Performance) Circus Bella is an open air, one-ring circus featuring contemporary, high-level acts set to an original score performed by live musicians. David Hunt and Abigail Munn created Circus Bella in the spring of 2008 to respond to a shared dream for accessible and high quality circus in the San Francisco Bay Area. Together, with band director / composer, Rob Reich, they assembled themselves into an ensemble company of 9 performing artists and a quartet of musicians. That fall, Circus Bella performed three dates in San Francisco. The success of these performances gave the company the steam and encouragement to press on.

The result is a breathtaking and powerful labyrinth of ear candy for your soul. 4pm S N O W A N G E L Invoking feelings of love, nostalgia and hopeful possibility, Snow Angel makes an impression that could melt the most cynical of hearts. There is no denying the power of this punky super group featuring Gabby La La on electric sitar, Pamela Parker on Guitar, Arianne Cap on Bass, Cadence Myles on Guitar, Michael Scott Jacobs on Drum, and Maya Carina on keys! Reminiscent of classic Cyndi Lauper and Jem and the Holograms, Snow Angel tops off every song with spell casting harmonies to create a rockin' dream pop sound from the heart. Snow Angel is the brainchild of Gabby La La, who is most famous for touring with Les Claypool's Fancy Band. Claypool also produced and released La La's first album "Be Careful What You Wish For..." on his record label. Come and listen to Gabby La La who has been heralded as one of the most talented and creative multi instrumentalists this side of the Emerald City. After years of studying the Sitar with maestro Ali Akbar Khan and earning a degree in North Indian Classical Music from CalArts, La La got her start as a member of Les Claypool's band. In 2005, Claypool released La La's first solo album on his record label and she has gone on to release two more full albums and EPs as both Gabby La La and Snow Angel.
