3rd Anniversary Show - May 9, 2011

I'm proud to announce the 3rd anniversary show for this blog at Lot 1 Cafe on Monday, May 9. It's very hard to believe it's already been three years, while it's hard to believe it's only been three years.

When I started Feed Your Head I really had no idea where I was going to go with it. I didn't know if anyone would be interested, if I'd burn out real quick, or it would just get swamped in an ocean of music bloggers. Well, actually, it released a whole new creative outlet for me, and once I started writing, I didn't want to stop.

After less that one year at it, Joe Fielder asked me to join Radio Free Silver Lake and take over the Low Down column and now, over two years later, I'm still at it. Rediscovering music at this stage of my life has reaped rewards I could never even have imagined. As much as I love the music, thrill to the new CD's I get, bask in the glowing reverie of live music, it's the friendships that have most touched my soul. That's the gift i treasure most.

As for the show itself, Johnny Seasons and Lot 1 Cafe have put together a bill of superb local musicians. Torches in Trees is one of my favorite, under-hyped local bands who always reduce me to a babbling fan with their hypnotically beautiful music. Judson was one of my favorite finds last year and I am honored to have him on the bill, and he always puts together a solid group of musicians to play with. I have followed Avi Buffalo since they began coming up to Los Angeles from Long Beach to play, so to have Avi Zahner-Isenberg play a solo set is thrilling. Paulie Pesh handed me a CD at the last RFSL weekly show at LaBrie's and it's a really fine collection of songs that I will look forward to hearing live.

Please come out and join me for a wild and celebratory Monday night.

It's awesome that Lot 1 will be celebrating 3 years since I built it and opened in May 2008. It'll be great to reminisce after we continue through the next 3 years! Kudos to you.
