Hotel Cafe :: Copeland :: Sherwood :: Anchor and Braille

The Hotel Cafe has become one of my many favorite venues in LA!! I went with my concert buddy to see Copeland and Sherwood here and it was an incredible experience. I'd been there before to see Greg Laswell and Sal on Gospel Night and had been blown away but the intimacy, sound quality and overall experience.

I would recommend if you know any artists planning on doing an acoustic set to book here/ see a band here. It's just lovely what this atmosphere does for the audience. From the Bruschetta and fries available for munching, there's bottled beers like San Francisco's AnchorSteam, Stella and quality liquers for drinking. Resonably priced, off Cahuenga and near the Piano Bar, The Hotel Cafe satisfies...

A great range of artists new and establish grace the stage. Sal is a regular pianist and entertainer who is absolutley stunning, makes appearances regularly. Take a lover, take a'll love it!!!

Copeland's Aaron was stunning vocally and musically. The piano in their songs was ambient and beautiful along with Aaron's hauntingly sexy voice. I sang along and felt the music because of the intimate setting and it was overall just lovely. I purchased a men's Vneck tee on my way and I wear it often!!

Sherwood, who I had never seen live, only heard of from MySpace Records, delivered. the lead singer filled us in with some funny stories and their music made me a new fan.

Anberlin's lead singer, Christian (Stephen), performed as Anchor and Braille, and sang some new tunes now available on itunes. hooray!! The night was awesome

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
