The Cherry Bluestorms Live at The Original Farmers Market

EB's Bar at The Original Farmers Market

6333 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, 90036


After taking a break from performing live, Los Angeles indie act The Cherry Bluestorms will return to the stage with a performance at The Original Farmers Market at the end of October. The band has been working in the studio to bring their third album, Whirligig, to life, and plans to do only a minimal amount of performances until it is complete. Heavily influenced by Britpop bands of the 1960’s and 1990’s including The Beatles, The Kinks, The Stone Roses, and The Charlatans, Whirligig is set for a 2017 release. Whirligig will feature many tracks that have become recent set list staples for The Cherry Bluestorms, including their version of The Beatles’ “She Said, She Said,” “Roy Wood”—their ode to The Move’s frontman, the ‘Mod’ anthem “Purple Heart Magic,” and the Rolling Stones-esque “Brighter Days.” Expect to hear these songs and more when the band takes the stage on October 28.

Guitarist Glen Laughlin had ended a long stint with punk rock legends The Dickies, and solo singer-songwriter Deborah Gee had recently come out of a development deal with A&M Records. After meeting at a coffeehouse they formed The Cherry Bluestorms—a highly stylized rock band inspired by the sounds, looks, and culture of 1960s Britain, but with a contemporary twist—a band that borrows from the past, but does not live there. The band’s debut album Transit of Venus and follow-up Bad Penny Opera were praised by the San Diego Troubadour, L.A. Weekly, Goldmine, Glasswerk UK, and others. Drummer Mark Francis White joined the band shortly before the release of Bad Penny Opera and they gained bassist Neptune J Max in June 2016. The Cherry Bluestorms have graced stages around the world, including The Cavern Club in Liverpool, The Bull & Gate and Dublin Castle in London, Toronto’s The Rivoli, and Los Angeles staple The Troubadour. The band has recently received radio airplay on Rodney Bingenheimer’s Rodney On The ROQ on KROQ, as well as in the UK, Japan, South America, France, and Canada.

The Cherry Bluestorms are set to perform Friday, October 28at EB’s Beer & Wine Bar’s West Patio Stage in The Original Farmers Market, 6333 W 3rd St., Los Angeles at 7:00 p.m. This is a free, all ages performance.

“The Bluestorms are really psyched to take a break from recording and perform at The Original Farmers Market again!” Says Laughlin. “We really hope to see you there for a special show!”

River Song Quartet/ David Baker/ Miwa Matreyek

REDCAT Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater

631 West 2nd St, Los Angeles, 90012


As spellbinding as it is poignant, this double bill of multidisciplinary performance features a deeply resonant collaboration between L.A.’s River Song Quintet and Ohio poet David Baker, and a dreamlike multimedia work by artist Miwa Matreyek, who blends fantastical animation with live shadow play. River Song and Baker offers three iterations of music composed by guitarist Gregory Uhlmann in combination with lyric text by the poet: a semi-improvised interplay of guitar and spoken word; a six-movement art song setting of poems by Baker; and a reading of Scavenger Loop—Baker’s eco-poetic Midwestern elegy—with a score performed by the quintet. Matreyek’s This World Made Itself, a signature solo piece that seamlessly merges projected kaleidoscopic vistas with intricate shadow theater enacted by the artist herself.
