Hollywood Brewfest Guarantees Loads of Booze, Deli LA Favorites
For $45 (just hear us out), enjoy unlimited tastings from over 35 breweries and live sets from Great Northern, Nico Stai, Castledoor and other Deli LA favorites all day Saturday at the Music Box in this year’s Hollywood Brewfest (21+, tickets can be purchased here). At face value, it’s a steep entry fee, but it’s all day buzz-pacing, a great bill and all the booze you can responsibly consume. This is bang-for-your-buck at its finest.
Regrets & Brunettes Turn Heads, Guitars
On the heels of the release of their debut LP "At Night You Love Me," blues rock-based Regrets & Brunettes are playing some local dates to preview fresh material. The relatively new group (their MySpace page dates them as seven months old) have already turned some heads with recent opening slots for Delta Spirit and The Henry Clay People, but the newfound attention could also be owed to vocalist Richard Bivens’s technique of playing a right-handed guitar in left-hand method. Now that’s how you get the ladies.
Regrets and Brunettes channel the melodic eccentricity of Brian Wilson with the grit of Neil Young, and they’re not shy to wear it on their sleeves. As pop for the more distorted crowd, they’re worthy of a listen (or even a glimpse of aformentioned technique), so jot Nov. 30 for their set at The Echo. They share an impressive bill with Seasons and Downtown/Union.
