This event is 21 and over
Natural Disasters come and go in the news, but the aftermath lingers long after the cameras stop rolling. With two giant hurricanes back to back it's hard to even imagine how much financial / emotional damage it's caused. It's easy to be out of sight and out of mind, but let me tell you, the uninsured toll is quoted at 70 billion. What a devastating experience and powerless feeling for these people to be apart of, which is why we should help how we can, and where we can.
This evening is evening devoted to benefit the Hurricane Irma and Harvey disaster with 7 bands that are true to make your soul feel good. Donations to Global Living, All Hands and Best Friends Animal Society.
Mara Connor is a singer/songwriter and LA native. She's currently recording her debut album in Nashville at the Bomb Shelter with Andrija Tokic (producer of Alabama Shakes, Hurray For the Riff Raff).
Music is a powerful thing. And in the eyes of singer, songwriter Desure, it can be the riff that rid you of that bad mood, or the chords that steer you through a smile. Born and bred in Los Angeles surrounded by a big, close family, Desure stumbled upon Neil Young and Bob Dylan at an early age, and his life would forever be changed. A writer of deeply moving songs that'll smack you in the face with emotion, Desure believes in the power of pure transparency in his music. "It builds a stronger connection," he says of his affinity for raw, unbridled performances. That's how the light gets in, to borrow a line from the great Leonard Cohen.
magine if Brian Wilson and Joni Mitchell wrote and recorded together. The resulting music might sound a lot like Paige Calico, lyrically elegant songs with sweet melodics and rich, lush harmonies. Here on her first solo collection after time with the duo The Dwells, comes an EP of six delicately crafted songs, all rendered with resplendent Paige-sung harmonies. Like Joni and Brian and few others, Paige excels at singing layers of vocals, evoking that spirit of peace and harmony, a timelessly intimate sound that forever sings of Laurel Canyon. Her music is both reminiscent of the past but also bravely new, creating a poignant hybrid of mystic alternative Americana.
In addition to singing all the lead and harmony vocals, Paige plays acoustic guitar. Geyer covers electric guitars and bass, with Mike Brown & Burleigh McDowell on drums, Dylan Zmed on mandolin, and Brad Snow on keyboards. The beautiful photography throughout is by the legendary Henry Diltz. The album was engineered by Geyer, mixed by Mario Borgatta, and mastered by Gentry Studer.
NIghtingale Rodeo is a collaboration between veteran songwriters Caitlin Anne Webster and Iain Micah Weigert. Their sound is a cosmic mix of 1950s soul and twang, with a modern edge.
