Reset and Reconnect w/ musical guest El Elle

  • Starline Social Club 2236 Martin Luther King Junior Way Oakland, CA, 94612 United States (map)

The theme for this month's SHOWGA is "Reset and Reconnect". We can decide to reset and reconnect to ourselves and what's truly important to us in any moment. We'll work with breath, movement and the 5 senses as tools for this reconnection, and as reminders of the wonder of being alive.

Our musical guest for this month's SHOWGA is El Elle. Lisa Light is an Oakland, CA based musician, songwriter, dancer, and recording artist. Soon after earning her degree in biology at Stanford University, Light found her true calling as a musician. She dropped out of SF State while pursuing a 2nd degree in classical violin performance in order to go on tour and record with her first band. THE LOVEMAKERS enjoyed an international following and released four studio albums, including critically acclaimed "Times of Romance" on Interscope Records. She has lent talent to many other musician's records as well such as Blondie and Denmark's Dreampop darlings, Sleep Party People.

Ms. Light released EL ELLE, her first solo LP in 2011, and has continued to collaboratively perform under El Elle moniker with rotating musicians and dancers. Light also performs as Material Girl, a Madonna Tribute Band, and founded Dreampop band Garlands, who released their LP in 2013. When she is not making music, she is dancing to it, or writing about it at Pandora Media as part of the music analysis team. Light is also a yoga teacher and a dancefloor addict.
