Gloucester’s Chelsea Berry at Female Music Fest in Beverly on Saturday $20

Once in a while, when good people work together, something wonderful arises.  That’s what you can expect on Saturday at the Queen Treatment Only Music Festival co-produced by award-winning Boston vocal powerhouse Ruby Rose Fox in partnership with us at gimmeLIVE.

Our vision was to bring the area’s top female artists together for one show on the same stage for an extraordinary night of music.  Ruby has chosen a stellar lineup for what the press are calling a “groundbreaking” show (see videos of all artists here).  Of course, no North Shore festival lineup would be complete without Gloucester’s Chelsea Berry!

Tickets are only $20 in advance GET THEM HERE ($30 at the door).  ALL AGES festivals like this can pave the way for the next generation of girls and women to make independent music without apologies, fear or rules.  Bring your friends for a one-of-a-kind musical experience you won’t see anywhere else!

Just in case you don’t know Chelsea, here’s a taste of some of her music:

And here’s a video of Ruby Rose Fox (some of which was shot the last time she played at The Larcom in Beverly)

Dave sent me this photo and information.  Dave, we always love hearing from you. Thank you Dave.


I was looking around for the year I was born that way and stumbled into this GEM The good old days look at what they brought in then!  I was whooping 4 months old when this came out!  Let me

Gloucester schools consolidation


Mern Sibley speaking to the Gloucester School Committee Sept 14, 2016 about elementary schools merging

If you missed it, you’re in luck. Busy night of democracy was captured by Dave from Cape Ann TV- direct link if the video isn’t showing below.

The Chair of the School Committee, Johnathan Pope, opened with a power point presentation that went for the first 49 minutes. Questions from the floor began immediately after Pope’s background talk. First question up at minute 50–no surprise –concerned a clarification about the cost of West Parish, quickly followed by Mern Sibley’s remarks at minute 51 which received a large applause as did others throughout the evening. Some residents came prepared to speak. Some were spontaneous. The path to the mike was steady and fascinating. A few residents had more than one take like parent Kylie Mione  who is also by profession a teacher at Veterans.

Here’s a link to the Elementary School Plan Proposal August 2016


Councilor Ward 1 Scott Memhard Facebook page has several posts about the school proposal.

The audience numbered less than 100 and included Councilors Memhard, Lundberg, Cox and Ciolino.
