NYC | November 15, 2009
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Sunday Salon will be collecting donations for the people of Caba, a small fishing town in La Union Province that has been affected by the second major typhoon to hit the Philippines last month. We will be sending, in true Filipino style, a ‘balikbayan box’ (an extra-large cardboard box filled to capacity containing various comfort items then shipped directly to the Philippines by a specialized freight service for a flat fee). FOR A LIST OF MOST NEEDED ITEMS, click here.
CASH DONATIONS will be collected as well, on behalf of the relief efforts of Cafe By The Ruins in Baguio City, Philippines. Everyone donating $10 or more will receive a limited print edition of our latest SalonZine issue, “Believe.” Donations of $25 or more will result in your ownership of not only “Believe” but the even-more-limited print edition of our Winter 2009 issue, “Audacity.” Pretty cool, yes?
Sunday Salon is pleased to welcome to the stage FOUR amazing writers and TWO equally amazing musicians! As always, Seventh Street Small Stage@ Jimmy’s 43 at 43 E. 7th St. (btw 2/3rd Ave), 7pm. Join us!

Michael Indeglio is a singer, songwriter, actor, musician and all around artistic guy living in NYC. We just can’t get enough of Mike and his guitar, so we keep inviting him back to the Salon stage. In addition to his solo performances, Mike also plays with various singers and songwriters in Philadelphia, New York, and Florida. He is a graduate of The American Musical and Dramatic Academy. He’s toured the country with the National Tours of TITANIC and MAME, and was a member of the Canadian Tour of FOREVER PLAID. This month at the Salon, Mike is joined by Tina Mathieu, who has been circulating her unique blend of folk and soul music around New York for the past few years; with her extremely melodic and heartfelt songs, she captivates her audience with every note she sings. And not that we’re spreading rumors, but November 15 just might also be two days after one of our musical guest’s birthday. Which one? Best to buy them both a drink, cover your bases, yes?
