|There is a discussion about starting a rotating monthly Texas housefilk currently underway on the unmoderated Texas filk mailing list|
Not exactly filking, but the nearest thing I know about happening on a regular basis (and open w/o some form of invitation): SCA Barony of the Steppes Bardic Gathering: schedule subject to change, see Baronial website. Medieval / Renaissance style preferred; filks should generally be related to life in the SCA / "Current Middle Ages" or pre-1600 history (but various "compatible" items have been performed on a fairly regular basis.)
Contacts: Mike C. Baker (kihebard@hotmail com) or best current info available through website (check on the Guilds section...)
We don't have a specific Person In Charge, but messages to SYSOP at The Round Table (1:106/1393, (713) 922-1393) will get you information about what, if anything, is currently going down in southeast Texas. J-Mag
|Salt Lake City area|
Utah Filk Organization (UFO) meets twice monthly. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Although we are just starting again to have regular gatherings in the Seattle area, when we filk at my house we usually start about noon, have a pot luck or pizza, and play till we drop. Unfortunately my new work schedule made me drop about 10 pm last time. I'm going to work on that because there were some whom I am sure were not ready to quit.
By the way, if you are in our area, intersted in house filks, and not on my mailing list or our email filk list, drop me a line and I'll put you on the lists. We are going to be trying to get together monthly again. We had probably 18 people show up for the September filk.
