WWSP PSA – SPACE show Postponed!

Hello All – It is with great disappointment that we must announce the postponement of the January 19th 2022 whitewolfsonicprincess show at Space.

 
We are sad, and the decision was not made lightly. However due to the recent Covid surge we feel it is the best decision for our band and our fans at this time.

A new date will be announced. We miss you all and look forward to celebrating and sharing new music with you soon. Stay safe friends! Peace and love – Carla & James

Happy New Year!

As that old song from the band Chicago asks: “Does anyone really know what time it is?” Nah. Not really. Our new motto for this year: “Life, not what you think!”

Mathematics may be the language of the Universe, but, you know, you can’t put a number on the most valuable things in life: Love, Music, Poetry, Dance, Laughter.

This New Year’s Day morning we are listening to “World Spirituality Classics 1: The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda” (2017) – This record was a major discovery for us in 2021. Just spinning it seems like a spiritual quest. So beautiful, passionate & holy.

We actually ended up purchasing a handful of Alice Coltrane cds in 2021. This one, a late career collection from “rare ashram tapes” is bold, breath-taking, powerful, life-changing & life-affirming. Alice Coltrane was a giant in music and in life. Her art, her dedication to the spirit is a joy and an example. Devotion. Yes. What a great way to start the new year.  The music swells, and washes, and cleanses the soul.  “Shanti… Om… Shanti…” – Jammer

They say “dream big,” “imagine a new reality,” “make no small plans.” That last phrase was one of my father’s favorites. So, yes, the future is uncertain, but we can imagine a new picture, a new frame, conjure up a new dream.

We are working towards our first show of 2022 at Evanston Space. A fabulous music room. We have played there once before, but that night we shared a bill with another local favorite band Ex Maquina! This time it will be WWSP, with a few special guests.

We are spreading our wings a bit. Seeing how high we can fly. We hope you will consider joining us for the journey.

WWSP at Jarvis Square Pottery

Last night we were back to one our favorite haunts. Sending vibrations into the air, bringing the dance of light and shadow. It was exhilarating to be back indoors at Jarvis Square Pottery. A fabulous night of music and good cheer. We shared the bill, and the stage, with Gunnelpumpers.

Yes. Back to doing what we love to do for a great creative community of souls. Masked, Vaxxed, venturing back into a Brave New World.- Jammer

All the pandemic shite changed everything for everyone. True, yes, indeed. We went into lockdown and isolation, unplugged, masked up and hoped for better days. We put rehearsing with our band on hold, cancelled r&r shows, laid-low, you know just like everyone else.

Slowly, we have ventured back into the world. Rehearsing with our band at our studio, working up new songs we wrote during lockdown, and brushing up on some of our old standby tunes.

This Saturday we finally get to play indoors at Jarvis Square Pottery a fabulous music room and community meeting-place. We have had some truly extraordinary shows there. This time we share the bill with the always morphing, mind-expanding Gunnelpumpers.

We are all vaxxed and masked. Hope you all will be too. Back to what we love to do. The Lovely Carla tells me “gentle” is the new byword. Gently we go into that good, dark night. – Jammer

WWSP would like to thank Sketchbook Brewing and all our beautiful friends and fans who came out to support us on Sunday (Halloween 2021).

Yes, it’s true. We love to play… it doesn’t really matter so much where; park, playground, art gallery, sidewalk, alley, big-time rock club, whatever.

We have a fabulous Sunday afternoon (3p.m.- 5pm) show coming up at Sketchbook Brewing Company in Skokie, IL on Halloween, Sunday Oct. 31. 

2 sets from whitewolfsonicprincess, plus, a Las Cocinita food truck, a full menu of beverages, and a magnificent brewery setting for fun and frolic. Conjuring spirits!  No cover. Tips welcome. Hope you can join us!

If the weather is good we will play outside in the Beer Garden, if the weather is bad we will move inside to the brewery! We will not be denied!

Peace & Love – Jammer & Happy!

Our show at Few Spirits on Friday, Sept 17 was a wash-out. Blue skies most of the day, but around 7:00 p.m. just as I plugged in my acoustic guitar, and the band took up their places, dark clouds rolled in and a healthy rainstorm, with a bit of ominous-looking lightening rumbled thru the alley.

Everyone scattered, and our gear got soaked. It was a difficult gig. 2 hours transporting and setting up, 2 hours of rain-soaked taking down and re-transporting, one brief moment when we thought we were gonna be able to play our set to a large, friendly and expectant crowd.

Nope. Didn’t happen. Still, a good time was had by all. Free shots kind of lightened the mood of the folks who came back to the alley as the rain stopped. Soggy but festive! No music, but lots of conversation, laughter, and yes joy. As the saying goes: “Fortune fancies the bold.”

The next day, I was back in our rehearsal space, setting up the p.a. checking to see if all the gear made it thru the storm ok. Everything works. Eureka. I sat on the floor of our rehearsal space and played my acoustic guitar for a couple hours. A “sacred space,” a secret garden, the calm center where we create together. It felt cathartic, and necessary.

Damn the torpedos. Who knows? Maybe we will try it all again soon. Rain-check please! – Jammer
