Graceful Ghost CD Release at the Silent Movie Theater –
Hey all, wanted to let the L.A. folks know that Wednesday the 21st, about 9:00pm Grey and I are going to be performing the Graceful Ghost in its entirety, with the original band of Grey, me, Marvin Etzioni and Sheldon Gomberg. We rented out the Silent Movie Theater at 611 N. Fairfax Ave, just south of Melrose in Los Angeles, and will be performing the album while a nifty slide show shows behind us. Free to get in, and we’ll have cocktails starting at 8pm (first drink’s on us) and snacks. I even got a new suit for this, so come on down.
Folks in L.A. will know about this neat theater, that’s owned by a silent film buff who purchased the building and makes his bread and butter from showing the great silent films of the 1910’s and 20’s.
Old 97’s news: We’re almost done with the new 97’s record, we’ll all have a lot more to say about that in the next couple of weeks. It’s gonna be good, I’ll tell ya that right now.
Gab atch’all later.
