Here's the latest from Sin City Social Club:
Holy cow are we busy and lucky to be involved with so many amazing events, shows festivals and talented artists... This is indeed why we have built this community!
SIN CITY SOCIAL CLUB members... CHECK OUT WHAT WE’VE GOT FOR YOU IN THE COMING MONTHS!
We’ve been shouting from mountain tops about SHURMAN for years... Their new album “Waiting For The Sunset” has been getting a lot of attention and features the legendary AL Perkins on the brilliant unofficial SIN CITY theme song “Country Ain’t Country”! It’s FINALLY available to the public and it’s time to celebrate with Aaron, Kiko and the new band!
Please join them at their CD Release party/show at The Key Club ... Maybe the album should be called “Waiting for the Sunset Blvd.” (wink) Shurman goes on around 10:30 pm
The band is fresh off a 6 week European tour and trek thru Texas, Arizona and Oklahoma. Let’s give em a big ol welcome home party shall we? Get your drinkin’ boots on and be sure to buy the boys a drink from Mama Shixo

THE MINT presents
Coyote Grace With special guests The Psychedelic Cowboys, Grant Langston and Neon West Www.themintla.com
FRIDAY, April 25
this proud and honored to present an intimate evening with CARLENE CARTER!
She will be playing songs from her legendary career including her new album “Stronger” on Yep Roc Records.
Carlene will be joined on stage by some other friends including the incomparable JOHN MCFEE (who played lead guitar on Elvis Costello’s first album My Aim Is True (most notably on “Allison”)) as well as playing pedal steel on Van Morrison’s Tupelo Honey but he’s probably best known for his work with The Doobie Brothers and Southern Pacific!
This is a one time opportunity to see Carlene in such an intimate setting...she did sell over a million records after all!
As an added bonus, we’ve added TOM FREUND to open the show and TRAVIS HOWARD will close the night with his rockin’ band!
TICKETS and SEATING are limited so I highly suggest buying tickets in advance ... This is selling out fast!
*** only $20 ***
You can buy them now by visiting The Mint’s website www.themintla.com
For dinner/table reservations please call Deana at 323.954.9400
Doors open at 7pm.
