The Good Ol' Days are Back!

Saturday night Larry and I drove to Woodland HELLS for a show. It has been hot, hot, hot in Los Angeles for the past few days. Woodland Hills is one of the hottest sections of the San Fernando Valley. The reason we ventured out was to meet up with some old friends. My friend Jan has recently relocated to the Pasadena area from Austin by way of Palm Springs. Our buddy, Bill Lynch and his wife Maggie recently opened this new club called The Write-Off Room. One of our fave bands, The Sin City All Stars was having a reunion gig! This band gets together around every 5 years. At one time we used to see them all over town, at the Palomino Club, Molly Malone's, etc.

The club is really beautiful with state-of-the art equipment, comfortable seating a good bar and restaurant menu. Also, we want to support this club as often as we can. There aren't too many spots in Los Angeles where you can see top-notch musicians for the price of a couple of drinks (no cover)! Bill knows so many musicians around town, including BIG STARS and incredible studio musicians. This is who performs at The Write-Off Room. You'll never see a bad show here!

We ordered dinner and drinks and proceeded to enjoy the show. This is one of the most entertaining bands with a great line-up. Before the show we talked to our friends, Dusty Wakeman (bass) and Chris Lawrence (pedal steel). The first set was excellent. More and more people started streaming into the club. We saw NBC weatherman, Fritz Coleman. THEN, we saw our buddy Lucinda Williams. Dusty produced a couple of Lu's albums. I'm sure he called her and invited her out to the club. Lucinda was part of our rock 'n roll roots group during the late 1980s and early 1990s when she lived in L.A. It was great seeing her.

Naturally, during the second set, Lucinda sang a few songs with the Sin City All Stars. It was a wonderful evening, full of great music and old friends!
