To ancient Egyptians life was a quest for spiritual ascension which unfolded in stages — twelve in this life and a thirteenth beyond, thought to be the eternal afterlife. The number 13 therefore symbolized death, not in terms of dust and decay but as a glorious and desirable transformation. Happy New Year Sweetwater Fans!
The quest to keep Sweetwater's much anticipated transformation on track continues Friday, February 13, 2009 at the Red Devil Lounge in San Francisco. Join us at 8:00 pm for a fantastic evening of live music — with proceeds going toward the effort to re-open the legendary Marin music venue.
