As we listened to the instrumental introduction of “Businessmen” by SnowApple, our first impression was of Safaris’ “Wipe Out.” When the vocals began, we thought of 1940s and 50s club singers or chanson in Paris. Three voices in harmony with operatic notes and the music bold and sometimes discordant, the overall sound is folk-ish while […]

Distinguished Poets: First Up…

Distinguished Poets: First Up…

We first met Luivette Resto at the Allendale Branch Library’s inaugural Holiday Literary Fest in December 2012. We enjoyed an evening of listening to poignant, humorous, raucous, irreverent, and nostalgic poetry, followed by joining the crowd outside and watching the lighting of the towering holiday tree. Afterwards, Luivette was kind enough to listen to our […]

Phoebe at Backstage

Phoebe at Backstage

We remember when she was hardly four feet tall, slinging the strap of an adult-size guitar over her head and taking the stage in the Sequoyah School courtyard. Phoebe Bridges began writing, singing, and strumming, and has never looked back…but always up. Phoebe has played at a myriad of local venues and last year her […]

A John Denver Christmas & Scambooty

A John Denver Christmas & Scambooty

How can you resist? John Denver is synonymous with Christmas like cookies and cream. Okay, that might be pushing it, but we have fond memories of our very first concert being John Denver, live in New York (not our first choice). We’ve always made a bit of a joke about it, (reclaiming our cool factor […]

Tall Men Group

Tall Men Group

Severin Browne, Jeff Kossack, John Stowers, Ed Tree, Jimmy “Muffin” Yessian, and Marty Axelrod meet once a month to enjoy Jimmy’s cooking. Oh yeah, and to bring in new songs they’ve written…based on an agreed-upon theme of the month. The best of those songs will be performed by them, the Tall Men Group, Saturday, July 20th […]

The Byrds and Beyond at the Coffee Gallery Backstage

The Byrds and Beyond at the Coffee Gallery Backstage

John York played with The Byrds. And The Mamas and the Papas. And Dr. John. And a bunch of other great musicians. Because that’s what you do when you yourself are a great musician: you play with others like yourself. He’ll be playing the Coffee Gallery this Friday, along with Billy Darnell and Chad Watson, […]

Mojácar Flamenco at the Coffee Gallery Backstage

Mojácar Flamenco at the Coffee Gallery Backstage

There probably is such a thing as too much Flamenco, but in the same way as there is probably such a thing as too many cute pictures of kittens. Improbable, but possible. Aristotle liked his Flamenco, too, don’tcha know. He would urge you attend this weekend’s performance by Mojácar Flamenco at the Coffee Gallery. Though the […]

Border Radio Returns to the Coffee Gallery

Border Radio Returns to the Coffee Gallery

Border Radio is an acoustic bluegrass/folk outfit that’s been stomping around Los Angeles off and on since the year 2000. They reunited just last year after a hiatus of many moons to play the one and only Coffee Gallery, and then sadly had their holiday spectacular there cancelled due to Altadena’s notorious wind-related power outage. But […]

What’s Old Is New Again

What’s Old Is New Again

During several summers following high school, I, like nearly every teenager in Orange County, worked at Disneyland. Early in my career, one of my pals introduced me to another coworker in the parking lot. Actually, this new acquaintance was crawling out of the rumble seat of a 1939 Packard, if memory serves me. And as […]

Butch Hancock at the Coffee Gallery

Butch Hancock at the Coffee Gallery

Butch Hancock. What a name, right? It might give “New Art of the Orange Crate Label” a run for its money. Two halves of two classic American names, run together in the person of “a raspy-voiced West Texas mystic,” as Rolling Stone has called him. Word has it that he’s equal parts romantic balladeer and […]
