Shows, etc. and Black Dub

Black Dub: I Believe in You

This is an incredible song with some pretty incredible musicians that form Daniel Lanois' project, Black Dub. I saw them live...was it two years ago(?) at the Troubadour in LA.
Daniel Lanois is an overwhelmingly talented musician and producer. Brian Blade has this incredible feel to his drumming. I love the bassist's lines, Daryl Johnson. And the singer, Trixie Whitley, has such a unique voice and powerful soulful feel to her singing.
A band called Vanaprasta has been headlining this month at the Satellite (formerly known as Spaceland). The first week, Daniel Lanois made a surprise appearance and played during the set of Rocco DeLuca, a musician he also produced. I regretfully wasn't there that week, but enjoyed the lineup the following week. I'm also hoping to go to the last Monday of this month as well. The lineup looks great!
I also *just now* found out that Rocco Deluca is playing at the Thirsty Crow tonight (my favorite whiskey bar) in Silverlake. Looks like I may have to make some plans tonight!

Keep listening to good music.

*Update: We did go to the Thirsty Crow last night around 9pm and it was packed. But since there was no time listed for the show, we ended up leaving around 10pm because they hadn't even started setting up and it didn't look like he was the first to go on. Too bad, I'll have to see Deluca another time.
