Dude. I hadn’t updated the blog in a few days (largely do to working out a classical guitar arrangement of Wonderful Tonight for a friend’s wedding), and was just coming on to mention that a) wild Up have a show this weekend, and b) Crescent City, a completely insane looking “hyperopera,” opens tonight, but Brian over at Out West Arts has already done a pretty amazing job summing up what’s on for this month. So you should just read that. I think the only thing he’s missing is What’s Next? Ensemble‘s Fourth Annual Los Angeles Composers Project, coming up on June 1. But that’s not in May, so I’ll let him slide, this time.
Check out Out West Arts’ comprehensive listing of events worth attending at outwestarts.blogspot.com/2012/05/in-wings-may.html.
Our friends over at Out West Arts were able to make it to the populist records/Nicholas Deyoe CD release party in Echo Park on Monday, and have posted an awesome review of it, with video and such, here:
Meanwhile, we’ll have an interview up with the label founders sometime in the next couple of weeks. This is an exciting time to be a musician in LA.
