June 21 @ The Monkey House Theatre - June 1, 2013
It was a great boon to the East Bay when songwriter par excellence Ira Marlowe opened his own venue, The Monkey House, in Berkeley last year. I've been wowed by Ira's songs since I met him at the venerable Bazaar Cafe in San Francisco more than 10 years ago, and he's put all he knows as a performer, songwriter, and music fan (aka a lot) into making a great venue for music lovers. I've been enjoying going to shows at The Monkey House since it opened, now I'm excited to play there.
Even better, I get to share another evening of original, bluesy Americana music with another one of my favorite people, Aireene Espiritu. She recently returned from touring Europe so she'll likely have some new tales to tell and songs to share. Aireene and I will trading sets, backed by some of our favorite musicians: I'll be playing with Kwame Copeland on lead guitar and Mike Stevens on percussion; Aireene Espiritu will be backed by Paul Olguin on bass. Please come! Doors 7pm; show 7:30pm
