Two LA gigs this month!
Wednesday, June 13
Nova Express, Los Angeles
One of my absolute favorite spots to play (or just to hang out). TheGreyman, well worth catching, opens at 8:00, and I hit around 9:30.
Sunday, June 24
Dangerous Curve, Los Angeles
4:00 PM, $7-$10 sliding scale
A really cool downtown art gallery and performance space. I’ll be sharing the bill with two fabulous guitarists: Ken Rosser and Bill Forth. We won’t decide the running order until right before they play, and/but both guys are 1000% worth checking out.
An impending gig or two brings with it many things, not the least of which being the eternal question: What am I going to play?!
