A group of young beautiful people out of Brooklyn and Philadelphia have a Lindsay Buckingham tribute called TLBAS and I am hereby inviting them, at most favored nation status, to play Cafe Zoe as part of the Earthwise Productions 20th Anniversary Series.
Here is one of their recent flyers. They have some vague connection to Best Coast.
I guess I can announce here to hold the date Friday, January 30, 2015 for Earthwise@20 at Cafe Zoe 1926 Menalto, but I don’t mean to imply that I am flying someone out from Brooklyn and Philly for this.
I am also possibly producing a panel on the history of jazz in Palo Alto at Lucie Stern Ballroom Sunday, Jan. 25 at 2 p.m. Free, with Palo Alto Historical Association, sort of a launch of the pseudo-publication of my 20,000 word treatise “Jazz contrafacts or whatever’* that one can view above. I can say the panel will not include Herb Wong (deceased), Danny Scher (in South America, traveling) nor Ted Gioia (stuck in Dallas, but gave me another 22 minutes of encouragement and info yesterday). Gioia has a son at Stanford, a classmate of that young organ player from Los Altos.
