Well some of you must be wondering, "What's with Dave and Topanga?". And it is true that I seem to be out there a lot lately. Just went out there yesterday for an afternoon Partay, as a matter of fact. But the truth is, I just love it there. It's always like a little vacation for me. Close to home, but somehow a world apart.
And our dear friend Marilyn Babcock is really turning into a friend of the whole So Cal acoustic music community. You remember the Larry Wines benefit we did last year? Well that was Marilyn's production, and it got her thinking that a regular series should be going on at the Community House. It really was a great day. God ... the food alone was worth twice the admission, and the joint rocked all day.
She has been working ever since to establish this as an on-going thing, and this is the first show of the series. It's a huge effort on her part, and we salute her. We need more like her, who see the possibilities and get to work creating something joyous and beautiful.
I am attaching a Flyer. The show goes from 3:30 pm till 8pm. A big, generous show. And as we like to do, we will be cooking too, so prepare to be fed.
Here are the acts from start to finish:
3:30 .... Rubylith ... a terrific group that does covers of great songs you will know.
4:15 .... Severin Browne ... you know Sev, one of the best we got. http://www.severinbrowne.com/
5:00 .... Dave Morrison Band ... Greg Krueger and Lisa Turner are with me. We'll take it on into the dinner hour.
Break: Food, Drink, Schmoozing, Laughing, Falling in Love, Parking Lot Trysts ... This is your time!
6:35 ... Amilia K. Spicer ... The lovely, mischievous, and scary-talented song-slinger herself. http://www.amiliaspicer.com/
7:20 ... Tim O'Gara ... Topanga's own musical magician. http://www.myspace.com/timogara
Sound is provided by Scott King and Tom Hall. Great equipment and four GREAT ears.
I will be MCing, and Alexia and other members of the gang will be on hand making all go smoothly.
$15 donation at the door. Bring many friends. Let's make this work, and create a great new venue.Topanga Community House 1440 N. Topanga Canyon Blvd. Topanga, Ca
