On February 1st I just barely made it out of Philadelphia before the ice storm took over the area! I flew into Los Angeles via Denver (which was at -12 with a wind chill bringing it to -30…and they opened up the back door of the plane!)
On the 3rd I performed at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel at the 2 Year Anniversary show for the Indie Showcase – it was a fun night! They invited three of that night’s performers to come back for another show – myself included – so I will be back for a full 2 hour set some time in the spring!
This was my first time seeing the sun set on the beach – well, that is probably incorrect as we vacationed in California when I was in high school but I don’t remember the sunset part…regardless, all the time I spent out here last year I never got to see it!
On Saturday night I went out to dinner with some friends to ‘Casa Sanchez’ in Venice – not only was the food delicious, but there was a fantastic mariachi band that performed for most of the time we were there. The show was phenominal and made for an awesome night!
Yesterday I had a free day so I went for a walk…which turned into a hike. I made my way up to Griffith Park and hiked up one of the Hollywood Hills. It was definitely not what I had set out to do (I wasn’t wearing hiking appropriate clothing) but it was such an amazing experience. The view is gorgeous! I definitely recommend it to anyone visiting or living in Los Angeles – just bring lots of water and wear sunscreen!
Next up is a show in San Diego at ‘Lestat’s’ on Thursday and one in Venice at ‘The Talking Stick’ on Friday.
Friday’s show will be streaming live starting at 10:30pm est/7:30pacific at http://Ustream.tv/channel/netteradio
