Dustbowl Revival

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

10:00pm

“In a city like Los Angeles, home to musical stars in nearly every known genre, handing out the Best Live Band title is not easy. But the free-thinking local collective Dustbowl Revival's upbeat, old-school, All-American sonic safaris exemplify everything shows should be: hot, spontaneous, engaging and, best of all, a pleasure to hear.” — LA WEEKLY

"Americana swing that was so fun I went back to see them again the next day." — ROLLING STONE

The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues and the hot swing of New Orleans to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their roaring live sets, Dustbowl bravely brings together many styles of traditional American music. Some call it string band-brass band mash up. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show teaming up with Louis Armstrong’s Hot Fives and Sevens, or Bob Dylan and The Band jamming with Benny Goodman and his orchestra in 1938. It’s infectious, joyous music - a youthful take on time-worn American traditions.

A John Waters Christmas

The Comedy Store-Hollywood

8433 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90069

9:00pm

Los Angeles, CA –John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame) will perform an unforgettable night of holiday mischief with his critically acclaimed one man show, A John Waters Christmas on December 5th at The Comedy Store. Waters pokes fun at the holiday season with adult-appropriate humor, effectively “putting the X in Xmas,” developing a show for the open minded and slightly left-of-center audience.
The cult classic, Baltimore-born filmmaker began his Hollywood success with now Broadway classic, Hairspray in 1988. Claiming his playful nicknames “Pope of Trash” and “Prince of Puke,” he maintains his image through his filmmaking and his personal presentation. Regarded as a shocking entertainer, John Waters carefully chooses his material and exploits it through a dirty lens. “It’s my obsession with Christmas: what I want for Christmas, what you should want, how to handle every holiday disaster,”Waters says. His rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions as he shares his religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of real life holiday horror stories. Delving into his passion for lunatic exploitation Christmas movies and the unhealthy urge to remake all his own films into seasonal children’s classics, “The Pope of Trash” will give you a Joyeaux Noel like no other.

Tickets available at: Ticketweb
Date: December 5th, 2014
Showtime: 9PM
Location: The Comedy Store Hollywood
Tickets: $50-$60, $100 Gold Circle Meet & Greet

John Safran presents and signs God'll Cut You Down: The Tangled Tale of a White Supremacist, a Black Hustler, a Murder, and How I Lost a Year in Mississippi

Book Soup

8818 W Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069

7:00pm

A notorious white supremacist named Richard Barrett was brutally murdered in Mississippi in 2010 by a young black man named Vincent McGee. At first the murder seemed a twist on old Deep South race crimes. But then new revelations and complications came to light. Maybe it was a dispute over money rather than race--or, maybe and intriguingly, over sex.  John Safran, a young white Jewish Australian documentarian, had been in Mississippi and interviewed Barrett for a film on race. When he learned of Barrett's murder, he returned to find out what happened and became caught up in the twists and turns of the case. During his time in Mississippi, Safran got deeper and deeper into this gothic southern world, becoming entwined in the lives of those connected with the murder"--"white separatist frenemies, black lawyers, police investigators, oddball neighbors, the stunned families, even the killer himself. And the more he talked with them, the less simple the crime"--"and the people involved"--"seemed to be. In the end, he discovered how profoundly and indelibly complex the truth about someone's life"--"and death"--"can be.  This is a brilliant, haunting, hilarious, unsettling story about race, money, sex, and power in the modern American South from an outsider's point of view.

Madi Diaz

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

7:00pm

Her father and mother both have wide arms and colorful palates, and supplemented her education with a steady stream of classic rock, metal, r&b, pop and prog. The inspiration stuck with Madi, who left small town life behind for Boston's esteemed Berklee College of Music. There, she began to shape her sound with songwriter Kyle Ryan, where her powerful voice intermixed with Americana undertones. Next she moved to Nashville, self-releasing her first album "Plastic Moon" in 2012, and beginning to explore her music's cinematic feel.

Now with Madi's Nettwerk debut "Phantom," her songs dive deeper and fly higher, providing a soundtrack for adventurous escapades on sweaty dance floors with old friends or late night introspective drives under a canopy of stars. As she takes to the road again this summer, Madi is poised to unleash her powerful songs and chase whatever the future may hold. "I can never sit still," she says "I wanna hurl myself into life. These songs tell a story about lighting flames and letting every part of the last fire burn out. Don't turn around and don't look back. Look forward."
