High Street Station Cafe, 1303 High Street, Alameda, CA
Come on out to this eatery in Alameda for dinner and tunes from 3 songstresses! I'm up from 7-8 followed by Leah and Heather. The place looks like an old victorian; kids are welcome and cozy couches complete the scene.
High Street Cafe's mantra "Come for the Food, Stay for the Music" was inspired by Susan Timney from the flavors and talent stirred into the Cafe beginning in 2009 . . . . innovative specialty items like drunk shrimp tacos & spicy mango salsa or flat bread pizzas topped with local farm offerings + fresh and bold flavors = a dynamic food and music blend!

More about the music: Heather Normandale's music is an exploration of the space between the earthy, aqueous nature of our physicality with the intangible aspirations of our dreams and subconscious. The body's experience is a beautiful merging of these ideas, as is the intention of the music expressed. The newest unreleased album, Trembling Water, reflects on our relationship with water, dedicated to the water within us and surrounding us in the natural world, with intentions to bring awareness to our responsibility for preserving and respecting it.
Lea Grant’s piano-driven compositions are characterized by jazz-influenced chord progressions, three part vocal harmony, fantastically synesthetic lyrics, and above all, a gorgeous, crystal pure voice.
