Patrolled By Radar at The Silverlake Lounge, 12-29-14: Photos
I ended the year
properly, with some seriously good live music. Last night The Sunset Drifters
completed their residency at The Silverlake Lounge, and they put together a
great lineup. Kicking off the night were The Evangenitals (I posted some photos from their set). The Sunset Drifters then did their show, and it was their bass
player’s last gig with the band. I really enjoyed their material, especially as
the pedal steel was prominent. Patrolled By Radar then went on at 10 p.m. After
a very brief soundcheck, Jay Souza declared, “Good enough,” and they ripped into “Widow Next Door,” the opening
track from 2011’s Be Happy. The band’s
2014 release, Cool Your Jets, is one
of my favorite CDs of the year, and they played several songs from it last
night, including “Lost Cause,” “Rally” (one of my personal favorites), “Died
With Money” and “El Norte.”
I started the music blog to let people know about all the good music that is out there. I only review CDs that I like. (This is partly selfish, as I don't want to listen to music I dislike.) Good Things About Bad Movies is about finding something good even in the worst films.
I created an index, with a list of all of my blog entries, including Shakespeare entries and music reviews, arranged alphabetically by subject. Here is the link: http://michaeldohertyindex.blogspot.com/
My friend Jason and I have a web series, "Grandmother Winsome's Variety Minute," and several episodes are up on You Tube, and also on the Grandmother's Fanny Game blog. What else? I am fascinated by the Marquis De Sade and Elizabeth Bathory. I often make decisions based on the humor factor. And I would love it if someone bought me a giant raccoon or fox coat.
