Alright, folks: February 25th. TWENTY FIFTH. 9:30 PM, Mr. T's Bar in Highland Park -- er, the LOS ANGELES Highland Park.
On that date you will be graced with the debut performance of Silver Phial, my new band which stars the fantastic duo of Patrick Cleary (The Digs, Burlington Family) and Cheryl Caddick (Layer, Burlington Family). Believe me when I tell you: the chemistry between the two of 'em is astonishing, like an unholy (or rather: holy) cross between Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris and Lindsay Buckingham/Stevie Nicks. Patrick's a phenomenal songwriter and I swear to god he's the reincarnation of Gram himself, and Cheryl, as I've mentioned, is an equal-good song/lyric writer and sings like a frickin' angel. And when our three-part harmony blend kicks in? THE WHOLE THING LIFTS THE FUCK OFF THE GROUND.
Dear LA blog readers -- I'm looking at you, S&H, Ashley, Loren/Prince/Gabe/Donovan and whoever else posts here from this fabulous, decadent city -- you must come see me. Also those of you who are looky-loos, including various studio and movie nib-nobs -- Oscar, Schmoscar, I don't care if you're tired from the night before, you are coming down, K?
Did I mention it's free? Did I? It's free. It costs you nothing but a little drive to Highland Park-ish.
Again: FEBRUARY 25th. Mr. T's Bar. Be there.
