Acoustic Christmas Benefit Concert

[Cory Joseph]

Today's blog may be a little shorter and less coherent than usual, but it's press week again over here at The OC Gazette HQ.  But there was an event I had to let you know about: Tonight at The Gypsy Lounge is the 4th Annual "Acoustic Christmas" Toy Drive! There are going to be a million different musicians including all of your favorite Gypsy Lounge usuals as well as some new guys. Sarah Nicole will start the show off at 8 pm and closing out the show will be Living Machine who will go on around 1:45 (which really probably means about 2:45). The lineup is below - get your scroller finger ready, because it's a doosey. Obviously as inferred by the name there will be a toy drive to benefit Hollywood Heart, a charity founded by David Gale, the Vice President of MTV New Media and Specialty Films Division. Check out some of their awesome programs by visiting their website.

Also at the Gypsy for the rest of the month will be ROCCO DELUCA every Tuesday night. This upcoming Tuesday, Jack Bauer/Keiffer Sutherland's L.A. rockers (that's right - this band is so B.A. that they have Jack Bauer as a manager) will be supported by one of our favorite local acts, Janu and The Whalesharks (fronted by brother/sister duo Jake and Sarah Papas, who's voices meld together perfectly over drums, bass, guitar and a mean banjo).

Also on the Dec 22nd lineup will be Gyspy staples, AJ Degrasse (kind of like a mixture of Mark Cohn, Joe Cocker, Bruce Hornsby) and Chris Karn from Deccatree (haven't heard him solo yet, but Deccatree puts out some awesome 90's-esque rock, so I have high expectations). 

So there are two shows coming up at one of our favorite local venues. Say hi to the owner Mike up in the soundbooth for us.
