Two small paintings of equal size framed the stage at Jammin’ Java. Stage right, the face of Johnny Cash sat on one chair, and stage left, the face of Leadbelly, on the other. Folk/Americana musician Tom Russell began painting (seriously, at least) in 2003, and his work now appears in galleries and hotels. His works also appeared with him at Jammin’ Java recently.

It was a special treat recently, having Local Natives perform two nights at the 9:30 Club. From the roaring excitement from the crowd, I knew that it was going to be a great show.

Vocalist Arrow de Wilde sang, trashed, and crawled around stage as if utterly possessed. Indeed, the spirit of rock n’ roll lives on inside her band Starcrawler, and the four Los Angeles punks struck like glam lightning in an opening set for The Distillers at 9:30 Club recently.
