“Sunset Junction time again and not a minute too soon! Ok I’ve only ever been once, but it counted for at least 1.5/2 for sure, we really made that place our …own.
I performed with my band The Donnas, it was our first show in a long time because we were in the middle of recording at Conway studios, where days and weeks mingle and breed to create a time no clock can mess with.
Anyway, I remember the sound was crazy on stage, and I was in studio mode, ie no sun, no lights, no witnesses, so the mic stand felt like a Boa Constrictor in my grip and the audience looked like a jury. Sure enough that feeling disappeared as soon as the blurry faces became clear and I remembered that we were amongst friends and family. The show took on a life of it’s own ending in a chant “Back to the mansion! Back to the mansion!” which was a fav joke of ours at the time.
My hope for this year is we’ll skip straight to the ‘show taking on a life of it’s own’ part, and that I’ll acquire a mansion, or the use of a mansion between now and August 27th. I have faith in the individuals, I have trust in the whole, and I have hope for the unknown factors that toy with our temperaments daily! Let’s make it gOOd!!” – Brett

The first one being a very, very special limited Sunset Junction Issue…100 only! We are just starting out and want to mark our first time at what’s become a landmark LA Festival in style.
Which songs? Brett & Paul are thinking “Movies” and… let’s make that a surprise. If you’ve seen us play you know we have a lot of music to choose from.
…and if you haven’t seen us - how’s Sunset Junction in LA work? Say 3 o’clock Saturday Aug 27th – over on the Bates Stage- Come Holler!
Or sooner - Vegan Beer Fest II @ The Roxy Saturday afternoon June 25th, maybe?
