You're Going to Die: See You In the Morning Light(poster: Becky Redman)

This Friday, a very special album release party is happening in San Francisco, but not it's not the normal kind of event you might associate with album release shows.

The record is a project masterminded by Scott Ferreter, and the show is presented by local art ensemble series You're Going To Die, which takes a look at the beauty that comes from with grief and loss. You're Going To Die has been operating in and out of San Francisco since 2009 and puts on events driven by a deeper exploration of death and dying. Dubbed a "grief release," this show is in celebration of the debut album by Sacramento's Deep Pools, titled See You In The Morning Light.

The album may be the expression of one person, but it came together with the help of 22 musicians, including Italian pianist Suzanne Ciani, and was recorded in six different studios. The music is worth a listen, especially in this time of hardship and loss that many may be going through — the album contains ambient sounds and samples from around the world, mixing the bizarre with the peace that seems pretty appropriate, this week especially.

The show takes place this Friday at the Noe Valley Ministry, December 9, 2016. Tickets for the show are still available, but in support of any of those grieving from the Ghost Ship fire last week in Oakland, the organizers are making the admission discounted or free if needed. Interested attendees should contact ned@yg2d.com for discounted tickets.

Ferreter has said himself that "we want this to be a space for grief to be held communally." The show will open a little earlier at 6:30pm to hold a communal open-mic space, and attendees will be given opportunities to donate to those affected by the Oakland fire.
