9pm-1am. Free!

A great times bar with the oldest liqour license in California just a hop, skip and a jump from Yosemite.


Last night during our show a girl came up to the sound guy, thinking he was DJ'ing, and asked him to change the song.

On one hand, I am flattered that she thought we were a recording.

On the other hand, I am insulted that she didn't like the song.

And also, that she couldn't friggin' see us playing our hearts out a mere 30 feet away.

Lots of other artists and DJ's and art and apps and food and drink.
All kinda stuff.

Also, We have a new sound guy...

American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe was enjoying Easter brunch with his family during our set at Wilshire Restaurant today.

The general manager (Jimmy) came over to me and told me that Mr. Lythgoe had a complaint about the music.

I was like, "Who the fuck is that & oh shit are we too loud?"

Then Jimmy says that Nigel was angry that it wasn't loud enough. "These guys are playing brilliantly, but I can barely hear them."

I chatted with Nigel after I turned it up, and he explained his consternation. I told him that "I can't tell what you are hearing from where I am standing, but if you want to be our sound guy then you are hired."

He agreed. So I am happy to announce that we have a new sound guy.

Nigel Lythgoe has accepted this promotion and solemn responsibility.

Congrats Nigel!

Joe Cripps Foundation...

Hey this is why Dutch & I went to Texas this weekend.

To celebrate life and birthday of the great Joe Cripps.
And help launch the Joe Cripps Foundation.

And to play music with some amazing players.

(And also to go to Waffle House at 2am)

Thanks to our lovely hosts in Denton and from Little Rock.

It was an honor to be there!
