In Which Pan Cogito, Once Ostracized, Is Invited To Join In The Second Annual “Bloggers Night” at The Ojai Music Festival, June 12, 2009

Dear Blogger:

Our first “Bloggers Night” at Ojai last year was such a success that we are scheduling another this year, and we hope you will be able to attend.

This year’s “Bloggers Night” features the world premiere of “Slide,” the centerpiece of the 2009 Ojai Music Festival and the newest collaboration between Steven Mackey and Rinde Eckert. This new music/theater piece is based on an actual psychological experiment about the manipulation of the human psyche and features Mr. Eckert as the psychologist Renard, with the instrumentalists—Steven Mackey and the six members of eighth blackbird—doubling as role players.

The performance takes place on Friday, June 12, at 8 p.m. in the Libbey Bowl and opens with the freewheeling members of Tin Hat—Carla Kihlstedt, Mark Orton, Ben Goldberg, and Ara Anderson. Tin Hat combines many genres of music from southern blues to the avant-garde in their performances of chamber music for the 21st century.

The performance will be followed by a reception at the Ojai Art Center follows with hors d’oeuvres and refreshments, including wines from Casa Baranca and an ale-tasting by Ojai Beverages.

Please join us and your fellow bloggers on “Bloggers Night” at the Ojai Music Festival on Friday, June 12. If you would like to attend the performance and reception, RSVP by June 1 ...
