Conspiracy of Venus sing

Conspiracy of Venus is an all women’s a cappella vocal ensemble based in San Francisco, California. Under the artistic direction of Joyce Todd McBride, the women of CoV interpret her daring and inventive arrangements of contemporary music, ranging from the classic (Joni Mitchell’s "Big Yellow Taxi"), to the cutting edge (Bjork’s "Possibly Maybe"), with dazzling technical verve and tons of personality. The group’s repertoire also includes works by David Bowie, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, The Pixies, Bill Withers, Rufus Wainwright, and Roger Miller.

Members of Cascada De Flores, a Bay Area folkloric group specializing in music from Mexico and Cuba, will be Kevin's guests this Saturday on A Patchwork Quilt.  They have a new album, Radio Flor, re-enacting the golden age of radio, when everyone you heard, announcers, musicians, actors, poets, and storytellers were always performing live from the studio.  Imagine listening to la estacion XEW in Mexico City or La Cadena Azul en La Habana, Cuba in the 1930s and '40s.
