Making Friends

A series of events and performances organized by Sam Roeck

July 11 – August 15, 2012

Making Friends

It's really amazing how putting together a series of events can make you totally blissed out on what a great city and community we live in. It's almost ridiculous how much love has been generated in the organizing of this program. Each night is comprised of two performers, one who I am friends with, and one who I want to be friends with. These are all people who's work I really believe in and who have, knowingly or not, made my life better and I want to share that with all of you. I would love to see you, I would love for you to see these performers and their amazing work, and if I don't know you and you're just getting this email because you are on the mailing list, I would love to meet you!


All the best summer wishes,

Sam Roeck
