Potluck/Performance Gathering for Matthew Sperry
September 3, 2004, 7 pm
NYC (Location TBA)
Dear family and friends of Matthew Sperry–
I had been working on organizing a performance/potluck in Brooklyn for Matthew on June 5 (the anniversary of his tragic death, of course) until I learned that if it could be scheduled for another date, Stacia, Lila, and others in his family could attend. So…they will indeed be here, and this memorial/celebration of Matthew will happen on September 3, 2004, at 7pm, at a location to be determined in New York City. You’re invited!
Basically I’d like to have a good time and create some beautiful energy (ie have a gathering with people, food, music, etc.) for Matthew and for everyone who has been thinking of him over the last year-plus-a-few-months.
Bring food, instruments, stories, photos, objects, dances, inspiration, etc.–anything that makes you think of Matthew that you’d like to share.
Feel free to email or phone me with questions, performance ideas, other creative ideas, etc.
Also RSVP so I can get an idea of how many people will be coming, and how to organize the performance aspect.
Finally, if you know anyone who might like to come, help get the word out and invite them or pass this message on.
Exact location TBA.
