Melting Pot

Absolutely crazy show yesterday with my first time (and likely LAST time ever) giving away 6 different pairs of tickets in a two hour period. I feel a little closer to Oprah after having a show like this (you get some tickets, and you get some tickets, and you get some tickets, everybody gets tickets!), all caused by special programming next week and the upcoming fundraiser (which will feature even more tickets). Solid show music wise, with new tracks from Gaslamp Killer, Kid Koala, Lianne La Havas, Corin Tucker, Soul Jazz Orchestra and more. I’d really wanted to play some Tim Maia, but only got a little instrumental interlude of “Rational Culture” because I ran out of time and didn’t bring any other Paul Weller than “Shadow Of The Sun.” Next week I’m doing two hours on one of my favorite bands, celebrating 20 years of making music and touring the US for the first time in a long time, Australia’s Dirty Three and yes I will have tickets for their show in Los Angeles in October.
