Before I head to bed here at CSSSA @ CalArts, here’s something that you should check out tomorrow night (Wednesday, July 20th) if you have the chance- the John Daversa Big Band’s CD release party at Catalina’s Jazz Bar & Grill celebrating the band’s first studio album. The party starts at 8 pm and it’s a great chance to pick up the new CD and check out some great music. You can buy tickets by clicking here. (Tickets are $20, and $10 for students with a valid ID.)
If you can’t head out tomorrow, be sure to check out the new album on iTunes and elsewhere. You’ll be hearing more about it and John Daversa tomorrow — it’s an eclectic mix, featuring everything from Daversa’s soulful trumpet melodies to badass spoken word artist-slash-saxophonist Katisse Buckingham.
I’m also into my second week here on the CalArts campus for the California State Summer School for the Arts (CSSSA) — and I already have much to share with you! But until then, good night.
CURRENTLY LISTENING TO: 1983/Flying Lotus/1983
