A big shout out to all the attendees—we appreciate you, my friends, SO much!
The night got off to a scary start. Cinespia was screening The Craft across the street at L.A. State Historic Park, so the road was full of adult trick-or-treaters darting through traffic. Vampires, skeletons, monsters of all kinds… Really put me in the Halloween frame of mind for the first time this season. But the parking—or lack thereof—aye yai yai.
Fortunately my hubby, Ryan, set up the show stuff like a pro while I looked for parking. Amazing accomplishment since this was only his second show. Ryan also took some of the photos below, and was the best helper all night long.
Fun fact: Oracle Tavern is the loveliest place for a show—such a vibe! I’m really grateful to be able to host there. Many thanks to Taylor (who ran the bar and drummed for Banny Grove) and Frankie (and Jay) who kept us all refreshed.
Kyle Mabson is the greatest DJ. Full stop. One minute he’s playing Christopher Cross’ yacht rock classic, “Sailing.” Next he’s segueing into hip hop on his way to Mudvayne. It’s memes as music, or vice versa. Pop-musical free association with no limits. I love you Kyle. Thanks so much for doing what you do.
Check out the photos below. I think I need a better camera! Ugh. (Posting all the decades-old Cleveland photos from the ’90s, Y2K and early Oughties—taken on disposable drugstore cameras—and they are better than my iPhone camera? Seriosuly!? Has technology really progressed?)
AND DON’T MISS THE NEXT SHOW….
November is going to be a real celebration: it marks TWENTY YEARS in Los Angeles for me. Can you believe it? I barely can. I am so grateful for the the friendship, the music and the purpose I’ve found here.
See you there?
Enjoy the pics…
Don’t miss the next one:
