Way, cool! SF-EMM member SATURN is having his CD release party in a week and a half. Here’s the press release:
“It’s like Prince and Bowie throwing a dance party.”
Renowned guitarist and Out Rock Artist Robert Urban once said of Saturn “To experience this handsome rising star croon, rap, dance, vogue, charm and effervesce his way through a live concert is to witness perhaps the hardest-working gay man in show biz. In addition to a voice this guy has some serious original moves.”
Saturn will be joined by up and coming pop sensation KaeRo as well as the local jam band Zutra. Tickets are $7 and a FREE CD is included.
Lots of music and a free CD? Awesome! More info at:
SATURN’s web site:
