Valentine's Day 2021 is a Valentine's Day like no other. During this stay-at-home-year we offer this stay-at-home-valentine's-day. Since they're holed up together already, Lesa Bezo (The Fawns) and Henning Ohlenbusch (Gentle Hen, The Fawns) are spending the evening focused on simple amusements. Join them in the kitchen as they attempt to make two pizzas and further attempt to play a bunch of songs around the dining room table. Expect songs old and new from the Fawns and Gentle Hen (also School for the Dead) catalogs, as well as unreleased material and, who knows, maybe a special Valentine's Day inspired cover. Lesa and Henning switch between electric guitars (6 and 12 string), acoustics, and a little old Casio keyboard. You know, kitchen stuff. While listening, follow along on their pizza making adventure. Imagine the aroma of the oven. What do you want? How about peppers and onions on one and mozz, basil, and garlic on the other. Sound good? Happy Valentine's Day!
