Los Angeles Loves... A Night at Lot 1 Cafe
Night two of our Echo Park heavy-handedness is Saturday featuring some of the prettiest voices we could gather... Easy boys, we already called dibs years ago.

Chances are, if you're good at Internet-ing, you've stumbled across Britt Warner either from being mesmerized by her smoldering Lana Del Rey-esque tracks on Soundcloud, enraptured by her provocative images on Instagram, or falling in love with her offline in the dimly-lit bars in Hollywood she frequents. And if you're "All of the Above" then the 50-foot restraining order for stalking will still allow you to see the show from across Sunset Boulevard (where we will be sitting). O Holler is the newly-named duo formerly known trio of Penny Dreadful. The lovely twosome features Rachel Birke (Heller Keller) and Pauline Lay (Moses Campbell) performing folk songs as beautiful and honest as any Moldy Peaches songs we've ever heard. Most of Los Angeles's indie scene is already in love with these two in one way or another and if you aren't then you probably haven't seen this video yet. It's been a few years since The Wild Reeds slummed it at one of our shows. Since then, the trio has made some band changes and permanently returned to Los Angeles, all the while putting out some gorgeous harmony-filled folk records. "Daughters" was and is our favorite Reeds song of all time. Hear them live sing it once and you'll be a fan forever. Before just recently, June 14, 2009 was the last time we saw Cap Lori. We remember this date clearly because it was one of the most stunning performances we've ever seen and it is with huge regret that we did not record it. The utter agony of not capturing that show was somewhat subdued last year with the glorious news that Cap Lori (aka Tennessee Rose) was moving to Los Angeles from Seattle. After a few welcome back shows at The Smell and Permanent Records in December, we are proud to present her at Lot 1 on Saturday.

Our next shows won't be until some time after SXSW (4/3 and 4/6 to be exact) so hopefully we'll see you this weekend.
