We can think of few better ways to make your Valentine’s heart go pitter-pat than to take him or her to the Coffee Gallery on Valentine’s night to see Janet Klein & Her Parlor Boys, who perform “Obscure, Naughty and Lovely Tunes of the 1910s, ’20s and ’30s.” Led by acclaimed Altadena music historian and writer Ian Whitcomb, the Boys are a crack bunch of musicians who keep the tempo swinging and the mood lively. Expect a saucy, sexy, totally fun night of Tin Pan Alley, ragtime, early hot jazz, vaudeville…. and perhaps a Yiddish novelty tune or a bit of romantic Italian music.
