Update: here is the podcast from that magical night of music. Enjoy!
Skip Heller/Claire Costa, David Houston/String Theory, Sal Valentino show, Luna’s Cafe, Sacramento, CA (6/30/2012) (length: 1:41:51)
What do I mean? Well, we will be doing a regular radio show today, featuring some of the finest indie and well known, but quirky, music available. But afterwards, we’ll be broadcasting live from Luna’s Cafe, in downtown Sacramento. The bill reads like this: Skip Heller and Claire Costa, who are no strangers to my listeners. They’ll be playing a set of Skip’s great Americana and country catalog, and featuring Claire’s wonderful vocals.
Then–David Houston and String Theory. David’s been making great music here in Sacramento for longer than a lot of us can remember. He’s masterful on both sides of the board–if he isn’t singing, writing, or playing, then he’s helping somebody else make their perfect record. Accompanied by a 4 piece string quartet (the best quartets usually have 4 members!), he holds court at Luna’s on the last Saturday of every month.
But wait–there’s more! Sacramento is home to a legendary pop star who got his start way back in the 1960′s in the Beau Brummels. I’m referring to none other than the legendary Sal Valentino! Oh yeah–you know him, you love him. He released a wonderfully romantic and great-sounding album a couple of years ago entitled Dreamin’ Man. And Sal’s going to join the show tonight. This is a rare opportunity to hear this great artist live, so get yourself down to Luna’s if you’re in Sacramento, or get yourself right here to Twirl Radio tonight at 9:00 p.m. Pacific, if you’re not able to go to the show. We’ll have a great time!
